Black Gold Burst - 10 Top

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

The DG Custom 30 is the culmination of a three year collaboration between myself and Doug Sewell. After extensive designing, redesigning, and repeated comparisons to the amps I have cherry picked over the years, we have come up with an amp that would rival the best of my vintage amps. Equally well-suited to both live situations and studio work, this amp is far from a knockoff. I am blown away. I'm hopeful that other players will find it as inspiring and musical as I do." David Grissom

Developed and refined over many years, the PRS David Grissom signature DG Custom 30 amp brings Grissom's discriminating tone to players looking for a highly-responsive, musical amp rig. The PRS DG Custom 30 comes in blonde vinyl with a cherry stained mahogany fascia and un-tinted salt and pepper grill cloth. It features four EL84/7581 power tubes and several tone-sculpting features, including bright switch, reverb, boost/normal gain switch, presence control, and top cut control.
