Celebrating Artistry and Nature

Private Stock Guitar of the Month December 2016 - Hollowbody II Piezo

For December, the twelfth and final Private Stock Guitar of the Month closes Private Stock’s 20th Anniversary celebration with vigor.

In a limited run of only 12 pieces, the Ziricote Hollowbody II Piezo celebrates the beauty and artistry of nature with exquisite wood species and a winter wildlife motif.

 

In keeping with this theme, Private Stock has included a number of unique appointments for the December Guitar of the Month, including custom “Winter Egrets” inlays on the fingerboard and headstock veneer consisting of solid white, gold and black lip mother of pearl and black corian, mother of pearl “December” engraved banner as well as mother of pearl side dots, and P-90 treble and bass pickups with Birds-eye maple covers. The instruments’ unique ziricote top and back is finished with natural satin nitro.

Only twelve of these instruments will be made for December 2016, commemorating Private Stock’s 20th Anniversary.

Private Stock Guitar of the Month

The original Guitars of the Month were cased between December 1994 and March 1996. They provided the opportunity to experiment with new ideas and led directly to the Private Stock to the creation of the Private Stock program with the first “official” Private Stock instrument casing on April 19, 1996.

“At the time, the original Guitars of the Month program was a way for us to experiment with new designs and features. To this day, that innovation and specialization is still at the heart of the Private Stock program, and we are very excited to try out some new ideas for our 20th Anniversary year.” – Paul Reed Smith
