Private Stock of the Month - August 2014

Posted Aug 06, 2014

Behind The Gear

“Private Stock” guitars are custom-built and made to order. The goal of Private Stock is to create the most beautiful, best playing, and best sounding guitar money can buy. A customer ordering a Private Stock can select their own wood types, pickups, electronic configuration, and so much more.

Each month we will select one of these Private Stock built guitars and feature it on this blog. We will take detailed photos and explain the components that make the guitar unique.

The customer who ordered this guitar chose their authorized PRS dealer and the top and back woods were specially selected from our Private Stock wood vault. With the help of his dealer, the customer was able to speak directly to the luthiers building and staining his guitar to ensure the color and build would be exactly what he envisioned.
