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/

 

The Private Stock Models line-up currently available in Europe comprises the below:

PRS Bernie Marsden LTD RUN

PRS SE Bernie Marsden Ltd Edition Colours!

Bernie Marsden’s signature PRS SE model is a truly fabulous guitar, designed to deliver big, fat vintage-style tone in a seriously good-looking package. With its super-comfortable wide-fat 22-fret neck and a pair of SE 245 humbuckers, Bernie’s guitar just feels and sounds spot-on. Reviews of the guitar in the press have always been glowing too. Guitarist magazine’s Dave Burrluck reckons the SE Bernie Marsden is, “A more vintage-informed version of the SE245 – if you like your single-cuts rooted in the fifties, you’ll like this!”

So we’re really excited to introduce no less than five Limited Edition colours for the SE Bernie Marsden in Europe (alongside black, which is now a standard colour option for the guitar). The new limited colours available are Black Cherry, Santana Yellow, Sapphire and Gold Metallic, with spalted maple also a new option. Just how good do they look!?

Translucent colours feature a flame maple veneer top, with every version based around a classic mahogany body and 22-fret, 24.5” scale length mahogany neck. Cream body binding and bound rosewood fingerboard set off the simple good looks of the SE Bernie Marsden, which is powered by a pair of SE245 humbuckers, two volume controls, single tone control and 3-way toggle selector switch.

Even better, the new Limited Edition colour versions are available at the same price as the original, at just £714 / €869 (inc VAT) including PRS SE gigbag!
