30th Anniversary Private Stock Dragon Takes Flight!

The unveiling of a new PRS Dragon guitar is always exciting – and the latest incarnation of this legendary instrument is particularly spectacular.

First glimpsed at NAMM 2015, the PRS Private Stock 30th Anniversary Dragon is the first PS version of the super-exclusive limited edition guitars whose lineage traces back to 1992. And it’s one of the most eye-catching of them all.

As with all of the previous seven Dragon guitars, the Private Stock 30th Anniversary’s most prominent feature is the sumptuous inlay work. Designed by fantasy artist Jeff Easley (famed for his Dungeons & Dragons rulebook covers), the inlay work was created by Aulson Inlay and features more than 285 individual parts fashioned from a wide array of gorgeous materials including jade, azurite, lapis, pyrite, abalone, and mother of pearl.

But the inlay is only the icing on the cake, of course.  Extraordinary Private Stock grade tone woods were hand selected for this very limited series and include a curly maple top (with a “pre-factory” style carved top and available in Tiger’s Eye and Nightshade colours), African ribbon mahogany back and mahogany neck (with “pre-factory” style Pattern Regular carve) with a 24 fret Madagascar rosewood fingerboard. The newly introduced 85/15 treble and bass pickups are some of our favourites too – really powerful but perfectly balanced and versatile as a result. And the 30th Anniversary Dragon’s hybrid hardware includes PRS Phase III locking tuners and the PRS patented tremolo system.

Only 40 of the Private Stock 30th Anniversary Dragons will be produced, with just a handful heading to Europe. Demand is expected to be extremely high, so you’ll need to speak to your PRS dealer without delay if you don’t want to miss out on a piece of guitar history…

Mark Holcomb (Periphery) Signature Model Unleashed!

One of the hottest metal acts in the world right now, Periphery’s hard-hitting blend of polyrhythms, crushing riffs and soaring lead lines takes no less than three guitarists to deliver. We’re very pleased to have one third of the trinity, Mark Holcomb, in the PRS family – and super-excited to announce the release of his new signature model!

Based on the classic PRS Custom 24, Mark’s guitar has lots of artist-specified features that make it a proper fire-breathing metal monster. Flat fingerboard, Mark’s signature Seymour Duncan pickups, a new design plate-style bridge, green abalone “J” birds, black Hipshot O-ring controls and glow in the dark side dots add up to a very distinctive, characterful addition to the PRS line-up. And these features complement the guitar’s carved, figured maple “10” Top, mahogany back, 24 fret Pattern Thin neck, PRS Phase III locking tuners, and volume, tone, 5-way blade switch control layout.

If you fancy getting your hands on one of the most aggressive PRS guitars currently available, be quick! There is no limit to the number of Mark Holcomb Custom 24s being produced, BUT the ‘order window’ for the guitar is open only until 6 March 2015. So be sure to get your order in with your PRS dealer before this date if you don’t want to miss out..!

Full specifications and a video with Mark can be found at here, and you can check out a short Q&A on his signature model, advice for aspiring musicians, and more here!
