Private Stock of the Month - June 2014

by PRS Guitars on June 23, 2014

Filed Under Electrics / Private Stock Electrics

“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 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.

The customer who ordered this guitar chose their authorized PRS dealer and came to our Maryland Factory to pick the top and back woods from our Private Stock wood vault.  With the help of his dealer, he spoke directly to the luthiers building and staining his guitar to ensure the color and build would be exactly what he envisioned.

I agree with Scott, abalone is the obvious material to match this top. If you wanted to fancy it up a bit (as far as the birds go) you should have used 513 or modern birds.

a true work of art. It inspires me just looking at it. WOW. Very lucky customer.

Gorgeous overall. I wouldn't have gone with the blue birds, but other than that love it. This burled wood almost looks like a paisley pattern - very cool!
