This is Private Stock

I have never seen anyone playing guitar in a bad mood. There’s something magic about guitars because they are simultaneously art, musical instruments, treasured possessions, and tools to joyfully spend time with. The goal of Private Stock is not only to create the most beautiful and best playing guitar money can buy, but the best sounding. We work very closely with each order - through hourly discussions, experimentation, meticulous checks of every detail at each step in the process and making final tweaks when the guitar is complete - to make sure we are building the best guitars possible. If you get an extraordinary instrument from Private Stock that is equally as good as a family heirloom and a musician’s tool to make a living on, we have done our job.

Please remember that PRS Guitars is a wholesaler, so these instruments are only sold through authorized PRS dealers. Though you will work through your dealer to get your order just right, Paul Miles, Tina Benson, and the entire Private Stock team are poised and ready to spec-out and build an extraordinary instrument just for you. We also build a significant number of instruments to our own specifications. Because we are in the wood buying, wood grading, guitar making, guitar finishing, hardware manufacturing, and assembly business on such a deep level, there are combinations of options that we believe need to see the light of day and will make you, our customers, very happy. The Collection Series, introduced in 2011, is the quintessential example of these instruments. These exclusive instruments are built using the finest materials from Private Stock’s most select stash of rare, exotic tone woods.

Whether built to your specification or ours, every Private Stock instrument is carefully guided through the process by highly talented, seasoned guitar makers, and each completed instrument is checked and signed by Paul Miles and me. From all of us on the Private Stock team, thank you for looking at and considering a Private Stock instrument. If you decide on a Private Stock guitar, we will give everything we have to make it the best instrument you’ve ever experienced.
