Mark's dream guitar with aggressive Tremonti humbuckers, comfortable Pattern Thin neck, and luxurious 10 Top.
Mark Tremonti is one of rock's leading guitarists. As the guitarist of Alter Bridge and Creed, he has met extraordinary success and continues to grow as both a guitar player and songwriter. While Creed was on tour in support of their first record, My Own Prison, Mark was contacted by PRS and asked if he would like to try one of their guitars.
"I jumped at the idea to play one of PRS guitars. PRS was one of those guitars that I could never afford in high school or college and had always wanted to play one." PRS sent Mark a McCarty model which he instantly fell in love with. He played that guitar exclusively for a while, but ultimately wanted a guitar that was more suited to his playing style.
Mark Tremonti began to collaborate with PRS on his dream guitar that would soon become the Mark Tremonti Signature Model. He needed pickups that were a little more aggressive and could complement his rhythm playing which contains a lot of palm muting. The result: PRS-designed Tremonti humbuckers. The neck of the guitar needed to accommodate his style, influenced by thrash metal, shred, and traditional blues. PRS met these needs with the Pattern Thin neck carve.
Pattern Thin Neck Shape
Neck shapes have always been a high priority for PRS and a hallmark of their quality. A guitar should feel comfortable, like "home," as soon as you pick it up, and the neck is paramount to that connection. The "Pattern Thin" neck is an updated version of PRS's traditional Wide Thin neck. This new neck shape reflects modern tooling and programming that allows PRS to even more preciously shape and consistently reproduce their necks.

Comments about PRS Mark Tremonti Signature Model 10 Top Electric Guitar:
This guitar is the best I've played and I've played the gammit. Really impressed with the tone knobs and the pickup switch...they really open up a wide range of tone possibilties compared to other expensive and cheap brands. Fast fretboard, awesome looks, great sound for rock, blues, country...about anything. I read about possible questions on the tremolo but it does very well for any task. If you're really yanking on the trem you should probably get a cheaper ax in case you cause structural damage to the instrument - you would not want to cause such damage to this beauty. I love this piece. It's my dream guitar!
