Guitar of the Month - June 2016 Paul’s Guitar.

What better way to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Private Stock than with a specially appointed Paul’s Guitar?

Paul’s Guitar has a highly musical tone thanks to a versatile coil-tap system and 408N pickups. This Private Stock edition features slightly modified brushstroke bird inlays and Private Stock’s “Strad” purfling, bringing an exquisite aesthetic to this signature instrument.

“When Private Stock built the first Paul’s Guitar, I knew we had some­thing special that I would be playing for a long time. I really liked the newly designed brushstroke birds, and the new single coil toned 408 pickups. Now I could get with my guitar exactly what I was shoot­ing for…a big fat sound that was wonderfully clear combined with a super resonant guitar which I loved.” said Paul Reed Smith.

Only ten of these instruments will be made for June 2016, commemorating Private Stock’s 20th Anniversary. Paul Reed Smith has been at the helm of PRS’s Private Stock depart­ment for many years, driving innovation, quality, and design. “Private Stock is very special to me. It is an amazingly passionate team working with our most treasured materials and new designs. These craftsmen are building heirloom quality pieces of art that play and sound as good as any guitar I have ever played. I am very proud to be celebrating 20 years of Private Stock with the Guitar of the Month program and the Paul’s Guitar model” Paul Reed Smith.

The original Guitars of the Month were cased between December 1994 and March 1996. They provided the opportunity to experiment with new ideas and led directly to the creation of the Private Stock program, with the first “official” Private Stock instrument casing on April 19, 1996.
