Brand New 2023 DGT in McCarty Sunburst with Birds. We love DGT's, they are a great sounding model with the DGT Pickups giving a nice fat vintage tone with coil splits adding versatility. This one has a good looking Flame Maple Top nicely highlighted by the classic McCarty Sunburst finish. The DGT neck profile feels great and the dark Rosewood fingerboard has the classic birds in flight inlay. Finished in the new revamped High-gloss nitro over a cellulose CAB basecoat. Its a durable, super thin finish that has a lovely vintage feel and superior resonance, the same as they haveused on the Private Stock models recently. Really nice example of a great model. With PRS hard case and tags.

The DGT (David Grissom Trem) is the result of more than 20 years of collaboration between Paul Smith and David Grissom. The DGT is based on the McCarty with a unique DGT neck shape, taller frets, special pickups, and a revised control layout. Grissom and Paul spent a year A/B-ing more than forty sets of pickups before nailing the vintage-voice of DGT humbuckers. When paired with individual volume controls for each pickup and a push/pull master tone control that operates the coil taps, DGT pickups provide versatility and articulation.
“The DGT is a product a lot of miles down the road: a lot of gigs, a lot of records. It’s like picking up a vintage guitar. It sounds like a vintage guitar, and out of the box it’s ready to go. There’s a whole lot of thought gone into this. The DGT is pretty perfect to me.” – David Grissom
