Meet The Model: The Private Stock 30th Anniversary Dragon

by PRS Guitars on April 15, 2015

Filed Under Electrics / Private Stock Electrics / Meet The Model

At first glance you may not realize that the Private Stock 30th Anniversary Dragon is constructed with over 285 pieces of inlay! The material, comprised most prominently of jade, azurite, lapis, pyrite, abalone, and mother of pearl, is placed in the routed guitar body by hand. The inlay process is so involved that we elicit the help of our friends over at Aulson Inlay. With Aulson’s knowledge and experience we were able to create this museum quality instrument that is as fun to look at as it is to play. Check out this blog post to see the Dragon’s build process!
