The Private Stock “Periscope Guitars” #4 & #5 Are Complete!

Filed Under Electrics / Private Stock Electrics

If you're wondering how the “Periscope Guitars” started, we'll explain. A few months ago we grabbed Paul Reed Smith and asked him if he wanted to try something new. We showed him an app called Periscope. Using the app, we were able to live-stream a broadcast of Paul inside our Wood Vault - a special section of our shop where we keep our finest Private Stock grade woods. During the broadcast, Paul solicits the help of viewers to select woods for what we have now affectionally dubbed the “Periscope Guitars!” It's a fun process and the guitars come out great each time! Check out our 4th & 5th Periscope Guitars below!

While Paul is heavily involved in pretty much every aspect of our business - it’s not often you find him choosing woods and writing up specs for an entire guitar! Together with the live-broadcast viewers, we landed on a pair of Tremonti models each uniquely beautiful and hand-signed by Mark Tremonti!

Check out the video below to see the wood selection for Periscope Guitars #4 & #5!

 

Below, see photos of the finished instruments, read the specs, and find the dealers who have them in stock! Periscope Guitar #4 is Orange Tourmaline and #5 is Aquamarine!
