SXSW Visitors Set to Turn it Up at the PRS Shred Shed

For the second consecutive year, PRS Guitars is the official sponsor of the SXSW “Shred Shed,” a large soundproof space at the 2015 SXSW Music Expo. PRS will have the latest guitars, basses and amplifiers available and invites SXSW visitors to walk in the Shred Shed, shut the door and crank up the volume. Located in the Austin Convention Center Exhibit Hall 5, the PRS Shred Shed is also a great place to chat with PRS staff and PRS SXSW showcasing artists while seeing and playing the latest PRS gear.

PRS will be bringing American-made S2 guitars, including the popular S2 Mira Semi-Hollow, S2 Mira, S2 Starla, S2 Singlecut Standard and a new S2 model which will debut at the show. Guitarists will also be able to jam out on the SE 245 Soapbar and the SE A10E acoustic steel string guitar, and bass enthusiasts will be able to play the SE Kestrel and SE Kingfisher 4-string basses. The Shed will also be outfitted with PRS amps, including the Archon, HXDA, and Grissom models.
