"David Grissom has played PRS (Paul Reed Smith) guitars for most of his professional career. He played a modified PRS McCarty Trem for over a decade. In 2007, after a 25 year relationship working with Paul on the design and improvement of PRS guitars from a touring/session player's perspective, his collaboration with Paul Reed Smith resulted in the DGT (David Grissom Trem) signature model. Its innovations include special pickups developed by Grissom, Dunlop 6100 fretwire, a nitrocellulose finish and two volume knobs to allow the blending of both humbucking pickups. Grissom has noted that this feature was inspired by the sounds Jimmy Page created on the early Led Zeppelin albums. (Wikipedia).

The original PRS list price on this guitar was $22,000
