This Is Private Stock
Private Stock represents the highest quality of materials, the most personally crafted instruments, and the greatest level of customization available from PRS. Whether you choose a Limited Edition instrument or a Built to Order guitar, every Private Stock is conceived and built with a “one-off” mentality. Through this program, we strive to deliver heirloom-quality, musical instruments.
“There’s something magic about guitars because they are simultaneously musical instruments, pieces of art, tools to joyfully spend time with, and treasured possessions. The goal of Private Stock is not only to create the most beautiful and best-playing guitar money can buy, but the best sounding. If you decide on a Private Stock guitar, we will give everything we have to make it the best instrument you’ve ever experienced.”
“I love being a guitar maker because I get to be a designer, painter, and sculptor. Every day I collaborate with people who share the same passion for craft, and we challenge each other to find the ideal balance between form and function. We always test ourselves against the past while looking ahead for new possibilities.”
– Paul Miles, Director of Private Stock
McCarty 594 Hollowbody II
The McCarty 594 Hollowbody II brings a new set of features to one of our most beloved models: the Hollowbody II. With fully-hollow construction, the Hollowbody II is a resonant guitar with warm, woody tone. The details carried over from the McCarty 594 model impart vintage character to this already classic instrument. 58/15 LT pickups, which have now been through the TCI (tuned capacitance and inductance) process, ensure that these guitars are clear and musical while dual volume and push/pull tone controls offer plenty of versatility. The zinc two-piece bridge and vintage-style tuners anchor this guitar and stay true to the promise of the McCarty family.
Whether you are looking for rich, authentic humbucking tones or nuanced, sweet singe-coil sounds, the McCarty 594 Hollowbody II can oblige. Additional appointments include, a bound, 22-fret, 24.594” scale length Pattern Vintage neck with rosewood fretboard and PRS trademark bird inlays.
“One of my sayings is that everything that touches the string is God – well, that’s really the bridge, the nut, and the tuners. The updates to the McCarty family make a huge difference in their tone. The guitar sustains longer and the tone has more character,” said Paul Reed Smith.
In the late 1980’s, Paul Reed Smith called on Ted McCarty to consult with him on guitar design and production techniques. He not only served as a mentor but became a great friend of Paul and everyone he met at PRS. In 1994, PRS released the first McCarty, an instrument that incorporated the full spectrum of techniques and knowledge Paul had gained from Ted as well as his own experiences as a guitar builder.
58/15 LT Pickups
58/15 was designed in conjuncution with the 85/15’s. 58/15’s are a vintage style pickup with exceptional clarity and focused midrange. These pickups are the latest innovation in Paul’s relentless pursuit of tone.
58/15 LT was tweaked from the 58/15, LT meaning low tunrns, have fewer turns which gives them a warm, clear tone.
