This is a PRS guitar price guide focused on their current electric guitar models. While we do not cover every single PRS model, we've hit the most popular ones and a huge chunk of their inventory. This means our price guide spans a wide range of cost, from some of the cheapest in the PRS SE series, to some of the most expensive Private Stock models. Note that pricing is sorted by dollar amount starting with the lowest and going to the highest.
If you have questions about our price guides or perhaps a PRS guitar not included, feel free to reach out via the comments section below. We can add guitars to these tables pretty quickly.
We link to partner retailers (that we trust and use ourselves) to show you updated pricing and to support ourselves. If you click through and make a purchase, we might receive a commission at no extra cost to you. This helps support our work and keep Guitar Chalk ad-free. You can check our affiliate disclosure for more information.
PRS Price Comparison from Multiple Vendors
Note that eBay entries are the most volatile and will change more regularly. We've also included Amazon listings which will have some inventory from third parties along with a small amount of used options, depending on the time and model. Though we've noticed that used PRS guitars on Amazon are increasingly rare.
Reverb is a great place to check for used options, which you can often find at significant discounts (20-30 percent or more is common).

We do not yet have agreements in place with Musician's Friend or American Musical, though they're also good barometers of PRS guitar price points and worth checking manually.

How do I find pricing for PRS guitars?
Aside from the table above, you can check vendor websites directly. They often have additional permutations of a single PRS guitar. For example, they might have different finishes, colors, different handed versions, or the same guitar with slightly different features.
Since PRS doesn't sell their guitars directly, you won't find an MSRP on their product pages. Instead, they have a dealer and distributor list that you can access here.

What are the best PRS guitars overall?
We're big fans of the PRS SE Custom 24, since it has the best balance of price and quality. You can read more of our take on that particular guitar here.
Read the full review: PRS SE Custom 24
If you're able to go into the higher price ranges ($2000 - $4000) and look at the mainline (non-SE) PRS models, the regular Custom 24 and the McCarty are two of our favorite recommendations in those higher price ranges.
The best all depends on your budget and getting the most out of what you pay.
Why are some PRS guitars so expensive?
The mainline PRS guitars we mentioned are made in the United States (Maryland specifically) and get a lot of hands on attention. They also have separate top pieces of tonewood and a really sleek carving job that adds a lot to the cost.
They also use more expensive parts, namely pickups and hardware that are not used in the cheaper SE models.
Mainline PRS guitars are some of the nicest electric guitars in existence.
The Private Stock models, which often get into five figures, are always customized and made entirely by hand, which no outsourcing or factory production techniques.
Why are the SE models so cheap?
The SE models are made in more of a factory environment and are outsourced to South Korea. They're still great guitars, but they're not as nice as the Maryland-made PRS electrics.
They do not have the top pieces and are flat without the body carving. This alone takes away a significant amount of cost.
Pickups and hardware are also cheaper.
