My dear friend Jason Kostal, world renown luthier, has decided to sell part of his amazing guitar collection and has invested his trust in me to handle it.
As he explains in the video himself "It is time to let someone who will play them enjoy these world class instruments".
The instruments were kept in a humidity and temperature controlled room and are pretty much in new condition. They were used as a "sound library", barely played yet perfectly maintained in top condition. Please contact me for international shipping as price and regulations may vary greatly.
I have seen and played a lot of private stock, this is absolutely without the shadow of a doubt one of my top 3 all times favorite ...
From Jason Kostal:
"The McCarty Model is my favorite PRS solid body electric and this Private Stock McCarty is just a stunning example. It’s crafted with a special PS Tiger eye smoked burst finish and mother of pear bird inlays with 14 karat gold outlines. The neck sports a striking figured South African mahogany neck and
Macassar ebony fingerboard. The quilted maple top is the level of exquisite that you’d expect from a PRS Private Stock with a rich back wood of African mahogany. The fit and finish is absolute perfection which of course is no surprise. Paul takes tremendous pride in every aspect of his guitars and none more than a guitars playability. For those players /collectors who are searching for a Private Stock I feel that this example is worthy of your consideration."
About PRS Private Stock:
"Everyone has heard of PRS Guitars; they are one of America's great entrepreneurial success stories. But not everyone has heard of the Paul Reed Smith Private Stock instruments. These are special guitars, in every sense. The goal behind the PRS Private Stock of instruments is not only to create the most beautiful and best playing guitars money can buy, but the best sounding. PRS works very closely with each order -
through hourly discussions, experimentation, meticulous checks of every detail at each step in the process and making final tweaks when the guitar is complete - to make sure they are building the best guitars possible. If you get an extraordinary instrument from Private Stock that is equally as good as a family heirloom and a musician’s tool to make a living on, then the Private Stock goal has come to fruition.“Whether built to your specification or ours, every Private Stock instrument is carefully guided through the process by highly talented, seasoned guitar makers, and each completed instrument is checked and signed by Paul Miles and me.
From all of us on the Private Stock team, thank you for looking at and considering a Private Stock instrument. If you decide on a Private Stock guitar, we will give everything we have to make it the best instrument you’ve ever experienced.” - Paul Reed Smith
