Hamden, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/17/2015 -- Brian's Guitars announced the details of an upcoming Paul Reed Smith Guitar Clinic event to be sponsored by the company. The clinic will be held on Aug. 22 at the The Ballroom at The Outer Space at 295 Treadwell Street in Hamden, with free admission for all.
Starting at 5:30 p.m., doors will open for a meet-and-greet session where guests will be able to speak to Mark Holcomb of the band Periphery, Between The Buried And Me guitarist Dustie Waring, Brian's Guitars representatives, and Paul Reed Smith himself. The instructional guitar clinic session will begin at 7 p.m., allowing attendees plenty of time to socialize, seek autographs, and shop the many significantly discounted prs guitars that will be on sale at the event.
"Paul Reed Smith is a legendary name in the industry, with some of our most popular guitars coming from this storied maker," Brian's Guitars owner Brian Giampietro said, "That's why we're so excited about our upcoming Aug. 22 Paul Reed Smith Guitar Clinic. With free admission, great drink specials, and a raffle for a gorgeous PRS 30th Anniversary Custom 24 guitar, it is going to be an unforgettable evening for anyone who loves music."
One of the most respected luthiers in the world today, Paul Reed Smith began building guitars while studying at St. Mary's College in Maryland. Turning out just a single, hand-crafted guitar per month thereafter, he soon built up a following among some of the country's top guitar players.
Early relationships with guitar legend Carlos Santana, Ted Nugent Band guitarist Derek St. Holmes, and Gibson Guitars icon Ted McCarty boosted Smith's profile further. By the 1990s, PRS Guitars, the company Smith founded in 1985, had become one of the top names in the guitar industry, with many of its high-end instruments ending up in the eager hands of the most accomplished and admired professional guitar players, as they still do today.
The Aug. 22 Paul Reed Smith Guitar Clinic sponsored by Brian's Guitars, then, will give music lovers in the Hamden area a chance to connect with one of the most significant figures in modern music. As the region's leading specialist guitar retailer, Brian's Guitars boasts the most impressive collections of instruments by Paul Reed Smith and other esteemed makers, including highly sought-after Gibson, Martin, Don Grosh, and taylor guitars.
Admission to the Aug. 22 guitar clinic will be free of charge, but first-come, first-serve seating at The Ballroom at The Outer Space will be limited, so Brian's Guitars representatives suggest showing up early. In addition to unbeatable pricing on a variety of beautiful PRS guitars, drink specials, a free raffle, and the opportunity to meet Paul Reed Smith himself, guests will enjoy an informative clinic, starting at 7 p.m., that will help them improve their own skills as musicians.
