PRS Private Stock McCarty 594 Graveyard just arrived!

September 12, 2018John MannNew Products, News, Sale0

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!18-258741 PRS Private Stock McCarty 594 Graveyard-10 - Copy

 

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.
