Sometimes a guitar is so rare, so sought after, and so special, that is has to be kept a secret. But now, the secret is out!
The PRS Private Stock Paul's 85 Limited Edition in Electric Tiger Glow is HERE at Heartbreaker Guitars. We have ONE of these incredibly rare pieces. They are the ultimate and premier "Paul's Guitar."
When a selection of wide-curl maple tops were making their way into the Private Stock Wood Vault, Paul Reed Smith knew they should be saved for something special. That something special ended up being the Paul's 85.
Paul's 85 are a special run of Private Stock Guitars painstakingly spec'd by Paul Reed Smith and meticulously crafted by the Private Stock Team. Paul picked the tops, the selection of woods, assisted on the neck shapes of every guitar, spec'd the pickups, and played and adjusted each guitar until it was "right". The team executed each detail while he looked after each instrument on a daily basis. The chosen specifications also include dark Peruvian mahogany neck, Honduran rosewood fretboard and headstock veneers, solid red abalone birds with mother of pearl outlines, bone nut, vintage style tuning pegs, and aluminum stoptail bridge with brass inserts and brass studs.
Every piece of guitar-making knowledge at PRS is also in these guitars: the wood drying methods, the feel of the neck, the color and stain technique (Electric Tiger Glow- an exquisite stain and spray technique that accentuates the beautiful wide curl maple), the finish (a very special paper-thin, vintage-formula nitrocellulose that will crack over time), and the pickups (PRS TCI pickups that were spec'd to be full, clear, and musical).
There are only 36 of these guitars available in the USA and we will have ONE available at Heartbreaker Guitars. Call us now to hear more about this once in a lifetime guitar.
