Released at the PRS Experience 2018, these extraordinary guitars were only offered to PRS Signature Dealers, including John Mann’s Guitar Vault. We were fortunate to handpick the woods for two of these guitars! I must say… Roxanne Mann did an awesome job working with Tina Sears and Paul Miles (PRS Private Stock team).
The photos can not do justice to the true beauty of this guitar. The playability and tone is unsurpassed!
PRS Guitars was recently able to purchase more than 150 curly maple tops from the outskirts of a Graveyard on top of a mountain on the East Coast of the USA. The Gravestones were dated around 1884, and the trees were clearly at least that old as they were forty feet to the first limb. The trees were logged in 2017, and the tops very closely resemble the wood used on guitars coming out of Kalamazoo in 1959. Paul Smith said it appeared to him to be some sort of sub-species of “Michigan” red maple, but with more thought it may just be the age of the tree. Regardless, these are Private Stock quality tops with medium wide to wide curl and extraordinary flame that has an iridescence to it.
For our 7th year, John Mann’s Guitar Vault is raffling off this beautiful new PRS Private Stock McCarty 594 Guitar to raise money for the Webster House, which is a safe home for children here in New Hampshire. Each year we have done this, it has been a huge success! To date, I have donated over $20,000 to the kids at the Webster House, in behalf of all of you.
The MAP price of this guitar is $11,270
Only 125 tickets (max) will be sold. Each ticket is $100 (plus $3 processing fee).
The winning ticket will be drawn at the Granite State Blues Society’s annual Barnful of Blues Festival on Saturday, August 4, 2018
