The Minor Chord is Paul Reed Smith's newest dealer in the greater Boston area.
Located in Stevensville, Maryland, Paul Reed Smith Guitars is one of the world's premier guitar manufacturers. Since their beginning in 1985, PRS Guitars has strived to create the highest quality instruments possible. Guitar building is a very personal thing at Paul Reed Smith, and most of the staff are dedicated players. They have a deep commitment to the craft, and their dedication to quality is very apparent in the instruments they produce.
The Minor Chord stocks two lines from Paul Reed Smith:
The PRS S2 Series is made at the company headquarters in Stevensville, MD. It offers the famous fit, finish, feel, and attention to detail of PRS craftsmanship in a straightforward design. The S2 Series blends new design elements and manufacturing techniques with practiced quality control and workmanship to create reimagined, fresh guitars that can be offered at a more affordable price - an attractive option for players looking for a way to get that famous PRS quality without breaking the bank.
The SE Series is designed in the Paul Reed Smith facility in Maryland and manufactured in Korea to strict PRS quality standards. The result is a guitar with the unmistakeable look and feel of a PRS instrument but at a very attractive price point. The SE Series are excellent step-up instruments for the player looking for a more responsive and easy-playing electric.
Although we do not usually stock guitars from Paul Reed Smith's top-of-the-line Core Series, the factory keeps us up-to-date on available models and we would be happy to order one for you.
Since we are a recently-appointed dealer, our PRS guitars are just starting to come in. We will be receiving more every few weeks through the summer. If you would like to check on specific models and their expected arrival dates, just call or use our Ask Us! page.

Of course, we can also custom-order any PRS instrument to your specifications.
Right away, we fell in love with the look, feel and sound of this awesome guitar.
US-made in Stevensville, Maryland, the guitars in the S2 Series represent great value. This Mira features an asymmetric beveled thin mahogany body with a set-in neck in the usual 25 inch PRS scale length. The neck profile is chunky - without going too far - and very comfortable. The super-solid stop tailpiece has brass poles and gives this guitar amazing sustain. The S2 Mira pickups at both neck and bridge positions can be switched into coil-tap mode.
The full solid-mahogany body adds a nice warmth to the sound. This guitar can really growl at high gain settings but can also do the warm jazzy thing nicely as well.
The S2 Mira Dots is a new favorite of ours here at The Minor Chord!
A more affordable version of the famous PRS Custom 24, this guitar features a mahogany body in the original Custom 24 body shape with an asymmetric book-matched figured maple top. The neck is mahogany with a 25 inch scale and a rosewood fingerboard with sharp-looking trademark PRS 'Bird' inlays
The pickup configuration includes an S2 HFS at the bridge and an S2 Vintage Bass at the neck. Both can be switched into coil-tap mode for a more 'single-coil' tone. The bridge is an S2-style tremolo.
Any fan of the original top-of-the-line PRS Custom 24 should check out this more affordable S2 Series version. It maintains that classic PRS look, feel and sound. And it's still US-made - but at a fraction of the price.
Based on on the popular PRS Santana models, this more affordable version is a lot of guitar for the money. It features a mahogany body, a maple top with a striking flame maple veneer, and a mahonagy set neck with a rosewood fretboard. 'Bird' fretboard inlays give it that classic PRS look.
The scale length of the neck is 24-1/2 inches, a bit shorter than the usual 25 inch scale of most PRS guitars. The neck also has a generous width and fat profile. Anyone who prefers a beefy neck, has larger hands, or likes to fingerpick their electric should like the feel of this guitar.
The SE Santana humbuckers deliver the fat tones you'd expect, but can also produce a smooth sound - just like Carlos Santana himself!
Our guitar features a nice Santana Yellow finish that shows off the flame maple top, but the same model can be ordered in Santana Red or the plainer Jet White.
