Description

What Reidys say...

"As one of just six ever made, this Bernie Marsden is a stunning example of what PRS Private Stock guitars can be and screams exclusivity. With a genuine Brazilian rosewood neck and fingerboard, that Laguna Glow finish and the fact that Paul Reed Smith and Bernie Marsden signed this when we hand-picked this exact model with them at the PRS event (photo below), this guitar is bound to appreciate in value in years to come.

Looking past the investment opportunity and looking at the heart of this guitar, you get the sort of tone you'd expect from a premium PRS Private Stock guitar. Every detail is hand-selected to ensure the tone of the guitar really sings - and boy does it sing! The 58/15 pickups are modelled on that classic PAF humbucker tone so you can expect a big fat vintage tone, but with clarity you only get with PRS-made pickups. In one word, this guitar is a dream."

Dale Gardner, Reidys Home of Music

PRS Private Stock - What Is It?

All the materials on a PRS Private Stock guitar are of the highest quality. The person whose job it is to grade the wood as it comes into the PRS factory assigns the very, very best for the Private Stock guitars. These guitars are made with a 'one off' mentality and offer players the highest level of customisation. The company is known for using great quality materials. Even on their affordable SE range, the finishes and quality of woods used is impressive so on the Private Stock models, you're getting something really, really special. PRS even have an elite group of luthiers who only make Private Stock models.

I've been lucky enough to see and play quite a few of the PRS Private Stock guitars and they are quite simply, some of the best guitars I've ever come across. As soon as you pick one up, you can tell immediately that it's made with extraordinary attention to detail and the finishes are like nothing else out there. Like the Artist Packs and more American made PRS guitars, the Private Stock instruments are an investment; they're the kind of thing you would pass down in the family as an heirloom. Whist the PRS Private stock instruments do sound incredible and are made with seamless playability, in my opinion, they are much more than just a guitar!
