From his beginning as a bluegrass prodigy to his current role as lead guitarist in Ricky Skagg’s band Kentucky Thunder, Cody Kilby’s distinctive, visionary voice as a guitarist has always stood apart from the pack. A fan of PRS acoustic guitars since their introduction, Kilby has now worked with PRS to develop a very special Private Stock model.
The Cody Kilby Private Stock acoustic features a PRS Tonare Grand body perimeter with a shallower PRS Angelus depth, PRS’s proprietary hybrid X bracing pattern, and a “Traditional” inlay pattern (only available on the Cody Kilby model). Private Stock options available to customers include top, back and side, neck, and fingerboard wood from the famed Private Stock Vault.
PRS acoustics have a distinctive voice that can be enjoyed acoustically or with our customized pickup system. The PRS Acoustic pickup system is a proprietary, full band width Piezo pick up that is combined with a proprietary 18 volt custom-voiced preamp.
