PRS USA Paul Reed Smith Private Stock Ted McCarty DC245 "Forest Green + Rosewood

The PRS Paul Reed Smith Private Stock guitars are supposed to be at the height of the art of making a guitar. With PRS 'Private Stash' (don't you just love that hype) of wood that surely ran out years ago if you really believe that Paul Smith ever had any, these guitars continue to carry a very high price with expert craftmanship. This guitar is beautiful in and out, from the color to the wood feel - the stuff dreams are made of, please whatever you do, showcase this guitar, it was meant to be admired. Overall i really dig the high-end PRS lineup in general, great mix / diversity, but the private stock seems alluring for tonewood choice, hardware and aesthetic beauty. Plus, it's a one-of-a-kind instrument. A piece of art, really... i will let you decide.... either way she's nice to look at.

Condition Report: I cannot talk highly enough about the condition of this beautiful private stock. Everything about it is immaculate and factory fresh. The quilt is memorizing and colour pops like no other I have seen. This really is a collectors piece. The woods were personally selected by the dealer from the PRS Private Stock Vault and as you can see from the photos.. the vibrancy and clarity is exquisite. The attention to detail on the inlays and crisp cream binding really makes this guitar something special. After a very very careful sound test I can assure you everything works like it should but rest assured, whoever this beauty lands with will have a one of a kind, killer PRS that their fellow players will drool over.
