PRS Guitars is one of the finest companies in the US! Over the years, I have had a couple of finish issues on core models that I bought new from authorized dealers. PRS stepped up to the plate and not only corrected the problems in a timely manner, but did an amazing job. I even had a 2008 Custom 22 rebuilt and re-finished, after it was damaged by a large rock being thrown at it, during a break-in to my house. They did an incredible job replacing the ebony fingerboard, re-creating the abalone shadow birds, while changing the color of the guitar to a color which I had requested. I currently own twelve PRS Guitars and two of their amplifiers. I can't say enough about how great this company is. Would Gibson or Fender take care of their customers like this, I doubt it. This is all the more reason to buy new PRS Guitars that have a life-time warranty. Thanks Paul for creating a 1st Class company.
