PRS Guitars has just announced Paul’s 85, a limited run of 85 Private Stock guitars personally spec’d by Paul Reed Smith himself and meticulously crafted by the Private Stock team. The model features an Electric Tiger Glow finish, wide-curl maple tops, dark Peruvian mahogany necks, solid red abalone birds, and more features specially chosen by Paul. PRS says each guitar was played and adjusted by Paul until it was ‘right.’

“We believe guitar making is an ongoing process of discovery, and this Paul’s 85 guitar utilizes all of the parts, processes, and workmanship I have spent my career (to date) seeking, testing, refining, and teaching our craftsman,” Paul says. “My hope is that these benchmark instruments are something remarkable for our company and the industry. There is no better way to close out our 35th Anniversary than with these extraordinary, hopefully magic, guitars.”

These guitars are available exclusively through Authorized PRS Private Stock dealers, and there are only 85 of them worldwide.
