Behind The Gear

Every once in a while on our blog you’ll see a post titled “missed connections.” It’s our way of making sure you have a second chance to see all of the great limited run guitars that we make - often in very small batches! This “missed connection” features the Private Stock 30th Anniversary Custom 24 - a small batch run of only 60 pieces worldwide! Take a look at the dealer list at the bottom of the page to find one for yourself!

2015 was a special year for us as we celebrated our company’s 30th Anniversary. To bring in this milestone year right, we developed a number of 30th Anniversary models, including this special Private Stock 30th Anniversary Custom 24. This model was built entirely by the Private Stock team which represents the pinnacle of the PRS brand, offering exclusive and beautiful woods, expert craftsmen, and the best PRS has to offer.


As many know, the Custom 24 is the original PRS - it defines the playability and tone that PRS guitars are known for and has been a constant favorite of players worldwide ever since its official introduction in 1985. The Private Stock 30th Anniversary Custom 24 nods to the original platform players know and love, while adding details Paul and our team have learned over the course of 30 years.


The Private Stock 30th Anniversary Custom 24 has a number of unique and striking appointments including:

- Peruvian Mahogany Neck with Pre-Factory Heel and Headstock Shape
- Madagascar Rosewood fretboard with Abalone Purfling
- Paua 30th Anniversary Bird Inlays with Mother of Pearl Outlines and Abalone Purfling
- Paua Private Stock Eagle Headstock Inlay with Mother of Pearl Outline, Mother of Pearl “30th Anniversary” Engraved Banner and Abalone Purfling
