Are there any old school blues or jazz players who use a PRS?

    Having read the other thread about old school blues or jazzers who have played or are playing Les Pauls, I wondered the same about PRS ... solidbodies in particular.

    Obviously there is much less history to think about, but I was scratching my head. Only one I can think of is a Sydney based jump blues player called Ray Beadle. He gets a great tone and rocks the house. He has a few you tube clips and a myspace page if you're interested. I don't know for sure, but I think he plays a CE22, but it could be a CU22.

    Anyone else?

    Santana sometimes goes into the genres of blues and jazz, so he could count. Also, what exactly classifies as "old school"? PRS only dates as far back as the '80s.

    Ed King had an endorsement with PRS in the early 90s as did Dicky Betts...

    Don't know if he's "old school," but DiMeola uses them.

    I think last time I saw Bugs Henderson - he was using a PRS.
