Private Stock Models For Europe
We’re very excited about the new Private Stock Model series, it has to be said..
Brought to you by the same team responsible for the pinnacle of PRS’s output (the ‘fantasy spec’ Private Stock ‘Built To Order’ guitars), the new Private Stock Models are a range of six instruments with predetermined spec options, built using the highest quality materials available. And because they’re built in small batch runs, the Private Stock Models come with lower price tags than their ‘one-off’ cousins (from £5995 / €6995 to £6995 / €8495).
All the guitars feature Private Stock grade woods, beautiful abalone and Mother Of Pearl inlays and the cream of PRS Guitars’ pickup selection. To learn more about the Private Stock models visit http://prsguitars.com/privatestock/models/
