For the past 16 years, PRS has released the “Private Stock Calendar” each Fall. Inside the 2019 calendar are high-resolution photographs of 13 unique Private Stock guitars, all built this year leading up to the calendar’s release. Today we take you behind the scenes as we explore the process of creating the calendar, how the project originated, and how we select the special instruments that make the cut.
Each year, the PRS Private Stock Acoustic team visits the Woodstock Invitational Luthiers Showcase in Woodstock, New York. “Woodstock” as it’s affectionately refered to by attendees, is a showcase of the finest acoustic guitars built by the most talented luthiers in the country. Check out this blog to learn more about Woodstock and see the instruments we displayed at the event!
The PRS Private Stock Acoustic project began in 2009 and since its inception has operated as an independent crew. Like any PRS Private Stock instrument, our acoustic guitars are built with an extraordinary attention to detail and a small-shop mentality. Check out this story to meet the builders behind our Private Stock acoustics, and learn about their experience building guitars as a career.
Here at PRS we believe in the details. They’re important to us, and for that reason we have “philosophies” that we live by when we build our acoustic guitars. These time-tested methods have helped us create heirloom quality instruments for years and we’re proud of what they can do for you and for musicians all over the world.
