We have this actual guitar, the actual guitar that has featured in all the pre marketing in social media and on the PRS Website making this even more collectable :) One of only 12 guitars built for the World and one of only 2 in the UK! The December Guitar of the Month.
For December, the twelfth and final Private Stock Guitar of the Month closes Private Stock’s 20th Anniversary celebration with vigor.
In a limited run of only 12 pieces, the Ziricote Hollowbody II Piezo celebrates the beauty and artistry of nature with exquisite wood species and a winter wildlife motif.
In keeping with this theme, Private Stock has included a number of unique appointments for the December Guitar of the Month, including custom “Winter Egrets” inlays on the fingerboard and headstock veneer consisting of solid white, gold and black lip mother of pearl and black corian, mother of pearl “December” engraved banner as well as mother of pearl side dots, and P-90 treble and bass pickups with Birds-eye maple covers. The instruments’ unique ziricote top and back is finished with natural satin nitro.
Only twelve of these instruments will be made for December 2016, commemorating Private Stock’s 20th Anniversary.
You may be wondering what events led to the birth of the Private Stock department? Around December of 1994, Paul Reed Smith felt the urge to try something different. He began experimenting with new combinations of woods, electronics, and layouts. These special instruments were built in very limited quantities and referred to as “Guitar Of The Month.” For two years, they crafted these unique instruments until the project grew and became Private Stock. On April 19, 1996 the first “official” Private Stock instrument was cased.
Now in their 20th year, Private Stock is paying homage to its roots with the return of Guitar Of The Month. Following in the footsteps of the program from the 90’s, all 2016 Private Stock Guitars Of The Month will stay experimental, beautiful, and uniquely treasured.
Paul Reed Smith commented on the return of this program, “I began Guitar Of The Month because I had ideas and a stack of exquisite wood 8 feet high. I knew it was okay to experiment. Innovation and specialization is still at the heart of the Private Stock program, and we are very excited to try out new ideas for our 20th Anniversary.”
