    <p class="p1"><strong>If the <a href="">gorgeous maple-cap DGT electric from PRS</a> wasn't woody enough for you, Texan session ace David Grissom – who has played for the likes of Buddy Guy and The Allman Brothers Band – now has an all-mahogany DGT Standard model to his name.</strong></p> <p class="p1">Currently available in eight finishes, the twin-humbucker, solidbody electric is likely to appeal to fans of Grissom's fat, expressive tone. We asked him what else they can expect from the new model…</p> <p class="p1"><strong>Tell us about the evolution of your all-mahogany DGT Standard model…</strong></p> <p class="p1">"I'm really excited about it. Basically, a guitar that I special-ordered years ago became the PRS McCarty model. I got that guitar in 1992, and played it for the next 15 years - and developed a long list of things that I thought we could improve upon.</p> <p class="p1">"I didn't want to mess with the core design of the guitar that much, so the logical thing was to keep everything intact but just take the maple cap off and do a solid mahogany body.</p> <p class="p1">"In fact, my first PRS had a solid mahogany body – it was a Standard I think. I do so many things, especially sessions, where an all-mahogany guitar will take up a much different space in the mix [to the maple-top DGT model].</p> <p class="p1">"So the all-mahogany body just seemed like the most logical way to go. I got one at <a href="" onclick="_gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'HubPush', 'inBody', 'namm']);return true;">NAMM</a> and I was totally knocked out by it so we said let's go ahead and do it."</p> <p class="p1"><strong>How does the tone differ from the maple-top model?</strong></p> <p class="p1">"The DGT with the maple cap has more lows and more highs. I don't quite know how to describe it, because every one is a little different. But in a way the maple-top version is a little bigger sounding, whereas the all-mahogany one is more focussed in the midrange.</p> <p class="p1">"I've been doing some sessions here at the house and had a chance to really kind of go back and forth between the maple top and the mahogany one and they're really complementary to each other. Even if you double a part and split them left and right, you get this texture that you don't get if you use two different maple-top guitars.</p> <p class="p1">"So it just fills up a different sonic space and a lot of people gravitate towards all-mahogany guitars – like an SG or whatever." </p> <h4>For more on the new PRS DGT Standard, check out <a href="">Guitarist magazine</a> issue 357, on sale 29 June.</h4> <a href="">Read more about New David Grissom PRS is 'more focussed in midrange' at</a><img width='1' height='1' src='' border='0'/><div class='mf-viral'><table border='0'><tr><td valign='middle'><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /></a></td><td valign='middle'><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /></a></td></tr></table></div><br/><br/><a href=""><img src="" border="0"/></a><img width="1" height="1" src="" border="0"/><img src="" height="1" width="1"/>
