JOURNEY’s NEAL SCHON Talks New Signature Guitars At NAMM (Video)

David “Gus” Griesinger of BackstageAxxess.com conducted an interview with Neal Schon of JOURNEY at this year’s NAMM (National Association Of Music Merchants) show, a massive music-products convention that took place January 24-27 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. You can now watch the chat below.

Neal Schon joined the PRS family of artists with two distinct signature models: the NS-14 and NS-15. Neal was intimately involved in the design of nearly every aspect of these instruments… from the stylized f-holes to the hardware details.

The NS-14 is a completely new PRS design incorporating a 14″ semi-hollow singlecut body with a new neck joint designed to allow greater access to the higher frets. The NS-15 is a thinline hollowbody based on the Neal Schon limited edition Private Stock guitar offered in early 2012. A portion of Neal‘s signature tone comes from his long-standing use of Floyd Rose tremolo systems. The NS-14 and NS-15 add a Floyd Rose to the PRS Core line for the first time.

“The new NS-14 and NS-15 PRS guitars are on the cutting edge of now,” says Schon in a press release. “I love everything about them. I had the pleasure in helping in the creation of these beauties and I love the weight, sound, and ultimate playability. These are among the best guitars I’ve ever played. Check ’em out.”
