The 58/15 MT pickup tones are everything you would expect from great humbuckers. Add in the Narrowfield single coil middle pickup and you have pretty much a complete sonic palette of juicy electric guitar tones at your beck and call. Then add in a great neck profile and the wonderful PRS workmanship, and you have a guitar that is damned fun to play as well as being an inspiring, superbly capable, multi task music-making machine.

The PRS Special Semi-Hollow Limited Edition guitar offers players a versatile hum/single/hum configuration with two PRS 58/15 MT (multi-tap) humbuckers and a PRS Narrowfield middle pickup. The 58/15 MTs offer all the tone of the originals while compensating for volume loss when split to single coils. The Narrowfield pickup delivers the bite of a single coil – without the hum, but with plenty of clarity and punch. Paired with a 5-way blade switch and two mini-toggles that tap the hum- buckers, this guitar can handle myriad sounds and styles, and the semi-hollow body with single f-hole provides a welcome airiness and depth to the guitar's tone.

The foundation of this guitar is very much like a Custom 22 – maple top, mahogany back, 22-fret 25' scale length mahogany neck, rosewood fretboard, Phase III tuners, and PRS Gen III patented tremolo.

CRAIG'S POV

I'm going to be honest with you. This Limited Edition PRS is just a splendid instrument. I decided that this is exactly the right time to offer this wonderful, no longer available model. This PRS Special might just be my very favorite guitar from Paul's core lineup. Truly. It is the perfect guitar for the player who is looking for extreme versatility coupled with hardcore honest and righteous tones. I wish I had had this guitar in my arsenal when I was a busy studio player. It would have been my go-to instrument for any call I got.  It's that good.

The 58/15 MT pickup tones are everything you would expect from great humbuckers. Add in the Narrowfield single coil middle pickup and you have pretty much a complete sonic palette of juicy electric guitar tones at your beck and call. What's amazing to me is how even the volume is when you switch between pickups. Rock, blues, jazz, metal, country - you name it, terrific tones are just a flick of the switch away. Add in a great neck profile and the wonderful PRS workmanship, and you have a guitar that is damned fun to play as well as being an inspiring, superbly capable, multi task music-making machine.

If you'd like to find out more about this item, just call or e-mail me. It would be my pleasure to talk to you about it.

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. That's what inspired us here at CR Guitars to seek them out; they conform perfectly to our vision of what "hand selected" really means. 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
