Don't lick doorknobs and stay in school
- Aug 24, 2020
Being a Marylander, PRS is very relevant around here. People will tell you that they have family or know people who work there. He was born about 15 minutes away in Bowie, went to Bowie high school and then a half hour away, he started above rams head building guitars. People around Paul's age that I know just casually drop in, "Oh I went to school with Paul" or "My nephew works there" and stuff like that. It annoys me! I am trying to get connections with PRS and one day hope to work there. Heck Paul lives in Annapolis as well. Paul also does a lot of stuff with the Maryland hall of music and is currently working with one of my favorite youtubers, music is win and also has digital harmonics, which is such a cool company with his son. When I met Paul, I was kinda shell shocked because I'm meeting this genius and he just comes up to me and starts casually talking to me. I met him at a release event for the Chessie fade private stock release for Bay Tunes guitars in edgewater. It's crazy how humble he is, to me. A head of a multi million dollar company, I think 56 million to be exact, will just talk like regular joe. When he was doing a QnA I asked if the company ever considered a pedal line or SE solid state amp line and we talked and then he said I have a bright future ahead of me. That really inspired me. He then signed my PRS hat and I've been in love with PRS guitars since.
