“PRS SE PS20E Black Top - Quick shipping and well packaged - arrived in perfect condition. Second PRS SE ordered from The Guitar Shop. Dealings have been excellent on both purchases. Action was fine as setup and has been fun to play. Enjoying the smaller body side - very comfortable and easy to play. Looking forward to spending lots of time playing this one.”




Many thanks for the prompt service yesterday with the PRS Custom 24 Natural. I appreciate the special efforts . The guitar leaves me speechless. It is beautiful. Its Bourgeois acoustic companions are happy.




My guitar arrived today and I wanted to drop you a line to say thank you. The pictures on your site really did not do this McCarty justice; it's lovely! The weight and balance are wonderful, the setup is just perfect, everything about it exceeds my expectations. I'm usually hesitant to buy a guitar before I play it (okay, I never do that), but your store's reputation and the reputation of Paul Reed Smith guitars convinced me to take the plunge this time and I could not have asked for a better Christmas present! Thanks to The Guitar Shop for making a long-distance purchase such a smooth and simple process. I won't hesitate to call you again the next time something on your site catches my eye... :)  Merry Christmas!



I purchased the Bogner Goldfinger 45 about a year ago from the folks @ TGS, my first intro to Bogner was with a Line 6/Bogner tubed modelling amp, it worked well but I wanted more of an authentic tube sound. The Bogner Goldfinger 45 is much more then a typical 2 channel amp. The two channels, called Alpha and Omega offer a wide range of voices from super cleans (that sounds amazing when playing with piezo pick ups) to all out peel your face off Hi-Gain that in itself has an additional two settings which offer a Vintage Plexi and JCM 800 tones. Although I am not a “pro” player by any means this amp truly is. The fit and finish are 10 out of 10. It is an investment but it is money well spent if you enjoy playing. When I had questions on the FX loops feature after I purchased it Ryan @ TGS was very accommodating and took his time to ensure I understood its full potential. Check it out you won’t be disappointed.




Bogner Goldfinger 45 = amazing amp


TGS = Great shop with Great people





 I received my PRS. It is in perfect condition and I am very happy with it. I actually just did a gig with it and it was amazing. 

I want to personally thank you for the good care you seem to have taken of the instrument since the time it was built and for the quick and friendly service I received. I would highly recommend The Guitar Shop to anybody who wants to buy a PRS guitar.

Thank you, this is a very happy moment of my life :)



Thank you to your shop for adjusting my Taylor MINI GS. I love learning to play on it and since your shop adjusted it I love playing on it even more. I told my son about the great customer service at your shop and he said that he would check it out some day. When I'm ready for something new I will be checking with your shop first and will recommend it to anyone who asks me. 


 Thanks again





Just a note to say thanks a million. The Guitar Shop (Ryan) gives World Class Services, I called Saturday march 28th to buy a PRS Custom 24 at 16 :00. We agreed over charges and freight. Tuesday

I received my tracking number and wednesday early afternoon I receive the instrument in Montreal, Quebec, very well packed, and in perfect condition. This is crazy.


Keep up the good work and

My best regards to you Ryan

Here's a video review/feedback



Just what I was looking for. 

Posted by Jimmy

I bought this guitar from very, very far away (Southern Europe to be more precise) and I have to say the delivery timing and response was fantastic. Great customer service.

About the guitar, it's great to play, versatile and has an excellent tone. Very good quality. I only missed a strap, it would have been nice to add one in given the amount of the purchase...But you know, it's also what most online shops would do. you get what you pay for, which is fair.

The guitar comes in a very portable and durable case which is also nice.

I only have one little complaint, more towards PRS than the shop, the guitar includes a generic user manual which is common to basically all PRS guitars, but not the 408.

Overall I am very satisfied with my purchase.



Everything I thought it was! 

Posted by Dan 

Thank you to the folks at TheGuitarShop. Arrived on the expected delivery date. Packaging was excellent. No damage found as yet. Don't expect any either. Excellent sounding guitar, very pleased.
Go Taylor!



Great guitar, excellent customer service 

Posted by Mark 

I've just received my Les Paul and am delighted with it. Well-packed and swiftly delivered to me here in England. I would happily buy another guitar from The Guitar Shop.



Very satisfied

Good price and good guitar. I like the sound



Better than expected 

Posted by Ray 

I was a little concerned purchasing a guitar sight unseen 
When it arrived it was as described or better. It was listed as used was as new really. 
I placed my order on a Sunday and it was at my home that Thursday. 

Very...very happy with the whole transaction. 




Awesome Bass! 

Posted by Sean

This style of Jazz bass caught my eye years ago and I have wanted one ever since. When my local guitar shop stalled on helping me find one (they've been discontinued) I turned to the internet. This bass and wonderful company showed up on the first page. After a few billing issues (on my part, the payment options weren't working for me), this wonderful instrument showed up at my door. I am usually wary of "Made in Mexico" Fenders but this bass is a dream. Playability is off the charts, beautiful paint and wonderful tone. The Mexican instruments I have dealt with have had craftsmanship issues and usually sub-par electronics. This bass was silent on plugging in and has a tonal range to fit any style. It needs the fret edges filed, it's fairly rough, but that's to be expected in any mass manufacturing situation. Beautiful bass, all in all. I am a happy customer. Thanks to Ryan and company for making this happen!

Best PRS yet 

Posted by Ernie

I own and have owned about 15 PRS guitars over the years. From early models to Private Stock #56 which I had custom ordered. The consistancy has been amazing. So, I keep adding to my collection. 

This one in particular is a real gem. Yeah, it looks nice, but it's one of if not, the most resonant PRS I own. Like and rings like a bell, just amazing really. This is my 1st Custom24. I really dig it. The switching is great and really nails what I want. I love a great single coil neck tone and this is the first PRS that gets that. I tried one of the new 408's that is supposed to get that and it was OK, but this switching is better for that tone. This C24 has become my #1.

The Guitar Shop is tops at getting some of the nicest PRS's I've seen. This is the 1st place to look for killer guitars!



Fender Hardshell Case 

Posted by Jon

The case is well constructed with the latches working very smoothly. The lining is quite plush, and my Fender American Special with Schaller strap buttons fits perfectly, as you would expect from a Fender case. Considering the quality, the cost is quite reasonable. The service received from The Guitar Shop was exceptional. My only wish would be for the compartment to have a lid that snapped closed. Would I recommend - Yes.
