When Paul Reed Smith assumed leadership of the PRS Private Stock program in 2009, he remarked, “I’m looking forward to building guitars again.” The Collection Series from Private Stock provides him the opportunity to do just that. Much like the sought-after “Paul’s 28” guitars, these instruments will be built in small batches (about a dozen at a time) and will incorporate a balance of PRS traditions and exclusive “prototype stage” specifications. A very limited number - approximately 70 acoustics and 70 electrics - will be made in total each year.
Collection instruments are built using the finest materials from Private Stock’s most select stash of exotic tone woods. Many of these woods, including prized Pernambuco used to make necks and fingerboards, will no longer be available for standard Private Stock orders. Proprietary specs, including Celtic knot inlays, will not be offered on forthcoming Private Stock guitars as well. Paul will personally oversee the design and construction of each Collection guitar.
The Collection Electric Series 2 is a custom DGT (David Grissom Trem) in Custom "Glow" Orange Finish, with custom One-Piece Quilt Maple Top hand selected by Paul Smith and David Grissom, and custom Pernambuco Neck.
