Celebrating the 20th anniversary of Private Stock program, PRS Guitars has announced its limited series of 40 guitars that are unique in many ways. For those of you who are not familiar with PRS’ Private Stock program, let us enlighten you that through this program PRS have been able to craft the very best tonewoods, featuring exceptional artistic details. So in honor of this innovative program, Paul Reed Smith’s company has crafted special edition African Ribbon Mahogany instruments that are reminiscent of Howard Leese’s ‘Golden Eagle’ model.
Just like the Golden Eagle, these guitars also boast slightly modified body dimensions, along with a 1/16th thinner top and 1/8-inch thicker back than usual ‘custom’ body design for a warmer tone. To be very precise, scale length of the guitar is 24.6-inch, and electronics are also unique with a three pickup configuration consisting of two narrow 408 treble and bass pickups and a Narrowfield middle pickup.
The 5-way blade switch and control placements also reminds one of the Golden Eagle’s original electronics layout. These limited edition Private Stock instruments are built with the finest woods, materials and superior craftsmanship. Neck of the guitar is made from Mahogany and includes 22 frets, private stock gen 3 tremolo w/ locking saddles bridge, Madagascar Rosewood truss rod cover and hybrid hardware- making it a high quality electric guitar.
Blending art, luxury and musical instruments together, the anniversary edition series is designed to give opulently magical touch to each and every harmonious tune coming out of it. But only few lucky musician will be able to get their hands on these PRS’ Private Stock limited edition guitars, as only 40 are available for whopping £6,999 (approx, US $10,531).
