We are exited to have just received in our first PRS SE Paul’s Guitar in Amber !
I have to say that on first pass, this is an amazing guitar at it’s price point. The Flamed Maple top is absolutely beautiful, the fit and finish exceptional, as always from PRS Guitars. Anyone who says that the Cor-Tek (Indonesian) guitars are not at or above the quality level of the past Korean guitars that PRS has been delivering, needs to check this axe out.
This guitar has many of the improvements and little touches that can only be found on the Core model Paul’s Guitar (which we have 2 of).

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.
