Only 20 Made

The DGT (David Grissom Trem) is a vintage-appointed guitar that is all about the details. Based on the original McCarty model, the DGT adds a signature neck shape, taller frets (and larger gauge strings), custom-spec’d pickups, and a unique control configuration. Take those distinctive features and bring it to Private Stock’s Guitar of the Month program, and all the details add up to be a show-stopping take on a very iconic PRS model. Only twenty of these instruments will be made for April 2016, commemorating Private Stock’s 20th Anniversary.

The DGT neck shape is based on two of Grissom’s (former) favorite PRS guitars and comes in between a Pattern/Wide Fat and a Pattern Regular/Regular. The larger frets and 11-gauge strings, combined with other appointments (thicker back, 22-fret neck, etc.), give the DGT a beefy tone. The pickups were finalized after a year of A/B-ing more than forty variations. The resulting tone has ample depth without losing any openness. The control layout features two volume controls and a push/ pull coil-split, providing tons of versatility and control. Full specifications below.

The original Guitars of the Month were cased between Decem­ber 1994 and March 1996. They provided the opportunity to experiment with new ideas and led directly to the creation of the Private Stock program, with the first “official” Private Stock instrument casing on April 19, 1996.
