    Hey guys, as a fan of both PRS and technical guitar playing, I was wondering if there are any virtuosos that I have missed out that play PRS.

    Mark Holcomb (Custom 24)
    Dustie Waring (Custom 24)
    Ryan Knight (Custom 24)
    Steve Vai (Custom 24)
    Mark Tremonti (Tremonti Signature)
    Yiannis Papadopoulos (Custom 24)

    Tom Quayle rocks a PRS from time to time, but he's got his own sig Ibanez now...

    Huh just realised he does a heap of PRS demo vids on YouTube

    Also Brent Hinds from mastodon is a beast of a player, and he used to rock a black Starla

    Don't forget Alex Lifeson from Rush who played PRS CEs through the 90s

    Jason Kui sometimes
    Aaron Marshall did for a bit, but now he seems all about the Aristides guitars

    Mark and Dustie both have their PRS signature models now.

    Steve Vai has long owned a Custom 24, but I wouldn't associate him with playing it.

    I see a lot of PRS in the hands of backing bands on late night shows etc...proving Paul’s point that they’re reliable tools for the working musician who depend on their instruments for a living.

    And if it helps, I’m a virtuoso in my own mind....:D

    Larry LaLonde (Primus) - was a PRS user for many years (but now an F-endorser). Got many a sound out of that CU24 that made you think... hmm, how'd he do that? o_O

    Interesting replies! Yep Jason Kui's a friend of mine, dude's killer.

    I do have to say though, it does seem that there aren't many mentions in the metal/hard rock/shred category.
