Paul Reed Smith Private Stock #9949 Singlecut Archtop – Blood Orange Glow

Serial Number: 359727
Weight: 6 lbs 1 oz

This special instrument, this Paul Reed Smith Private Stock #9949 Singlecut Archtop in Blood Orange Glow was in the womb at PRS headquarters for over a year! Being PRS connoisseurs, we are always excited to combine aspects from our favorite models for something totally unique… And sample the world’s finest collection of exotic tone woods!

To touch on the logic behind these builds, our sales manager Granville is the kind of guy that likes to dive in to these kind of things head-first and be inspired by what is around him. Typically, he enters The Vault with an idea in mind and chooses woods and specifications based upon what stands out among the greats. Just like when he does lumber selection for our Wood Library guitars, no top is untouched before decisions are made. The difference here is only one top, out of many species of wood, are selected for just one special guitar (instead of forty at a time). The Private Stock also opens the door for completely one-off, unique specs like what is found here.

This is a world-class instrument that will very quickly have you falling in love with it’s lush and warm clean tones.  The air and clarity coming from this guitar give it such a complex characteristic that truly must be heard in person to be appreciated. We are very proud to put this PRS instrument out in the world and we hope you’ve enjoyed viewing it!
