This beautiful Paul Reed Smith Tony McManus Private Stock acoustic features Cocobolo Back and Sides, and Select European Spruce Top.
“It’s an ironic thing to say about such a beautiful instrument but it becomes invisible- leaving the player to concentrate solely on the music- which is what it should be all about. The Tony McManus signature model is based on the Angelus model but with the PRS wide fingerboard and the Private Stock wood choices are pretty spectacular. The guitar is capable of going anywhere I’m capable of going musically. It works beautifully as a solo fingerstyle guitar but if I need to flatpick, it’ll go there too. It’ll accompany songs, tunes...whatever I need...tuned high and tuned low, gently caressed or driven hard.” – Tony McManus
