A & P Richardson was started in 1988 in the UK by Alan and Paul Richardson. At first profits were small and after two years Alan moved onto a better paying job - leaving Paul to run the business. Soon Richardson guitars were starting to be seen in the guitar magazines. In 1994 at the age of 25 Richardson made The Wildhearts logo guitar for Ginger which was seen on Top of the Pops TV show. Paul Richardson switched to using the "PR Guitars" brand and his guitars have been voted “best of British” by the Guitarist magazine and guitarist choice by the Guitarist magazine.
