Tim Mahoney
Guitarist - 311

Tim at the 1999 HFStival playing his Vintage Cherry PRS Standard

          Tim plays guitar for the popular rock group, 311. Although not available for a full interview, the following comments and information were supplied:

          "I enjoy playing PRS' because of their tone and playability. A few of my musical influences are Jerry Garcia, Bob Marley, Carlos Santana, Willie Nelson, John Scofield, John McLaughlin (especially with Mahavishnu Orchestra)...there are many more. I've learned a lot from listening to those fellas. It inspires me to hear players get in that a pure transmission from the soul, through the body, instrument, speaker, and sound waves into your ear."
