Hello everyone! Paul here. Last year at Experience PRS we got all of our best Private Stock dealers in a room and asked them to be part of a special program. The program would allow me to design and personally work on guitars at a more intimate level than anything else coming out of our shop. The program would feature exclusive specifications, such as pernambuco necks and celtic knot inlays. We would make one set per dealer each quarter – one acoustic and one electric guitar – making these instruments extremely special. That is when the Collection program was born.
To this day, I still check every Private Stock electric guitar, every acoustic guitar, and every Collection instrument before they leave the building, and I am intimately involved in the building of all Collection instruments. Playing these instruments is a highlight of my day. This video walks through my playtest routine.
