    New Guitar Day: Private Stock 7 String Singlecut Tremolo in Smoked Dark Purple Glow

    Well folks following the incoming thread, it arrived a day early. Now isn't that a nice surprise? What's there to say? Well, to begin with, this is my absolute dream guitar. A year after I started playing seven string (after 15 years of six) and fell in love with it, I knew it (7 String) was...

    Incoming. The Epic guitar of my dreams. After almost 30 months of waiting

    A little ironic to post this right after my 'investment' video, since this is not an investment at all. Or maybe it could be ;) ;) No, in all seriousness, I specced it out around April May 2021 after a lot of trepidation and going back and forth on many spec choices. The initial estimate was...

    Private Stock Build Idea - Feedback/Suggestions?

    Hi! Looking for feedback on a guitar I want built. The reason is, I want less guitars and I want one guitar with features that do not come on any single guitar I know of. I am talking with a big signature dealer about it, and what follows is essentially the email I sent to them. I have never...

    How long does it take for PRS to review/approve a Private Stock Order once a dealer submits one?

    Like a month or a few weeks? Anyone have any experience on time frames?

    How up to date are the cases options listed on the Private Stock page?

    I have been told that the PRS website is and can get fairly outdated, what is shown may not be available. I would think with the cost of a build, the page would be accurate. I am wanting to get the Paisley Black with the blue interior. The ordering form lacks pictures and a detailed...

    Tim Mahoney Private Stock build

    I am about to start the process (with my PRS dealer) to build and order a private stock Tim Mahoney stop tail 24 model. This will be mostly based off of the New Blue that PRS made for him when his SE line came out. I have owned the SE version for years and love it. The SE has a Wide Thin...

    Canadian dealers?

    I did a search to see if this issue had been discussed previously and didn't see anything within the last couple years. I've been looking on-line at 10-tops, wood library and private stock to see if I could identify a Canadian dealer with decent stock OR at least one that would be doing wood...

    PRS Private Stock Custom Form/Menu

    I am finding it difficult to find the right spec PRS Custom 24, and am considering a Private Stock Build to Order PRS. I found a PS form online, but I didn't see a menu of options to select. I just ordered a Jackson Rhoads Custom Shop and Martin Custom Shop 000-18 Ambertone and they had a nice...

    Favorite Top Figuring

    Hey all, I was wondering what camp you guys landed in for favorite guitar top figurings. Like hypothetically, if you could only have one spec’ed out private stock PRS, what top would you use? I love my quilt tops, but obviously flamed maple looks great as well as non maple tonewoods. What’s...

    Are Narrowfield pickups bad? Same question with rotary switches.

    Hey! So I’m back again, and if you commented on my last post, I thank you very much for all of your kind words and advice. However, I come to you again but on advice for the guitar. I definitely want 3 pickups over the standard 2, but is there something wrong with a narrow field middle pickup...

    My accidental Scale Length experiment with a twist ending

    So a few weeks ago, as some of you who follow the forum know, I purchased a Private Stock 7 String. I have been wanting one for a while, one of the reasons (apart from I love 6 string PRS's) is the scale length (26.5 inch) which I think is the best for 7 strings. So it arrived and I immediately...

    The evolution of the Custom 24

    Happy Friday everyone. So I did do a lot of trading recently and as I was mentally scouring my collection, I realized that one form of guitar had taken over as the dominant type over another that had defined me since I first picked up electric. Indeed my collection now had less Les Paul and Les...

    Are cocobolo necks any good?

    I’ve got a PRS Custom 24 SE currently and looking at ordering a PS, as none of my other guitar seem to play quite like my PRS, and I’m just looking at wood options and wondering. Are the Cocobolo necks any good? I absolutely love the way they look, but I’m not sure on how bad pricing is and if...

    Ponderings on expensive guitars

    So today I was thinking about cryptocurrency (as most of us cannot avoid doing), looking at all the new bazillionaires, and wondering what would have been, if I had put all the money that I put into guitars, into this latest Tulip craze. I will not lie. I did feel a pang of regret. But it also...

    The question no one asked

    Just how much bigger is a PRS Custom 24 8 string vs. a regular Custom 24? Well, if you didn't know, now you do It's quite funny how the regular guitar looks so petite here. But the shape DNA is clear to see from the shape to the control layout. I also find the 4 a side headstock very satisfying.
