For casual and dedicated fans of PRS guitars, the Modern Eagle series has been revered for its unbridled commitment to premium craftsmanship, serving as a flagship model for the uncompromising ethos of Paul Reed Smith’s work.

As it turns out, the history of the Modern Eagle is far more nuanced than you might think, playing an integral role in shaping the identity and output of the entire PRS brand. Don Carr gets into the details with Paul Reed Smith himself to unravel the untold story behind the Modern Eagle: everything you never knew and why it will always matter. Check it out!
