PRS is pleased to announce the addition of six new translucent maple top colors to its US-made Core electric guitar and bass line: Aquableux, Blood Orange, Faded Whale Blue, Obsidian, Violet, and the color name that raises the most eyebrows - Leprechaun Tooth.
After a lot of thought, we have decided not to hold Experience PRS 2014 this September. We are very actively planning some special celebrations for our 30th year both at our factory and elsewhere. I can’t talk specifics just yet, suffice to say we have big plans, and we will be spending a great deal of energy to get things rolling. We’ll keep everyone posted on the specifics as we can. To the fans, dealers, distributors, press, and artists who journey to Stevensville every year to enjoy and absorb our Experience PRS event, we thank you. Your support has been paramount to that event’s success.

PRS Guitars is pleased to announce the new Private Stock Alex Lifeson Thinline acoustic guitar, new for NAMM 2014. While the craftsmanship and attention to detail are very consistent with other PRS Private Stock acoustics, this instrument embodies some new design elements that take the instrument in a unique direction. The Alex Lifeson signature PRS acoustic is slightly thinner than the company’s Angelus Cutaway and Tonare Grand and is constructed in such a way that it lends itself to louder stage volumes and the rigors of the road.
The PRS Private Stock department is one of the largest custom guitar shops in the USA.

These instruments can become timeless works of playable art that can increase with value over time and reflect not only the superior craftsmanship of the PRS Private Stock team but also the artistic vision of the owner.
