<p>Tunnel 13 Acoustic</p>

The redwood timbers used for the top of this PRS Private Stock acoustic instrument once framed the backdrop to the story of the last great train robbery of the west. Harvested around 1880 in Oregon, this Coastal Redwood was to spend the next 120 years air-drying in Tunnel No. 13 in the Siskiyou Mountains. Naturally aged, this redwood is resonant with a full, complex tone that is a slightly darker than spruce but with more headroom than cedar. This fine-grained old-growth redwood is thought to have been more than 2,000 years old at the time of harvest, imbuing these instruments with historical significance, tone, and beauty.

“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 body shape, 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.
