PRS Paul Reed Smith Tremonti Guitar, Cobalt Smokeburst
Music Store Live is very proud to offer up this gorgeous Mark Tremonti Signature guitar with a tightly figured flame maple top in an all-new cobalt smokeburst finish.
Mark Tremonti has a reputation as one of rock's most complete guitar players. He's got some great riffs, he can wail, and he has an intuitive sense of melody that seems to elude most players. This is the guitar that he relies on to cradle the spark of his creativity. It's a complete tone machine: It has thick, crunchy lows, singing highs and throaty mids, all with a bit more punch than you might be used to from a single cut. The body is a bit on the thicker side, but it's still very comfortable to play sitting or standing. The neck is super fast, and unlike some other single cuts, upper fret access isn't restricted at all.
This guitar doesn't care if you're a die-hard Tremonti fan or if you've only heard the name - it'll work wonders in a wide variety of musical settings either way.
As the guitarist of Alter Bridge and Creed, Mark Tremonti has met extraordinary success and continues to grow as both a guitar player and songwriter. While Creed was on tour in support of their first record, My Own Prison, Mark was contacted by PRS and asked if he would like to try one of their guitars.
"I jumped at the idea to play one of PRS’ guitars. PRS was one of those guitars that I could never afford in high school or college and had always wanted to play one." PRS sent Mark a McCarty model which he instantly fell in love with. He played that guitar exclusively for a while, but ultimately wanted a guitar that was more suited to his playing style.
Mark Tremonti began to collaborate with PRS on his dream guitar that would soon become the Mark Tremonti Signature Model. He needed pickups that were a little more aggressive and could complement his rhythm playing which contains a lot of palm muting. The neck of the guitar needed to accommodate his style, influenced by thrash metal, shred, and traditional blues. PRS met these needs with the Tremonti Pattern Thin neck carve.
