You are looking at a Paul Reed Smith Custom 22 Private Stock Brazilian #4597 Electric Guitar Violin Amber Burst, serial number 13-203347. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (7 lbs, 8.1 oz.)

The goal of Paul Reed Smith's Private Stock is not only to create the most beautiful and best playing guitar money can buy, but the best sounding. The Private Stock team 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.

These exclusive instruments are built using the finest materials from Private Stock’s most select stash of rare, exotic tone woods. 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 Paul Reed Smith himself.

This Custom 22 Private Stock Brazilian #4597 is the epitome of luxury and tone. The solid mahogany back perfectly complements the high grade curly maple top to provide you with remarkable tone while the mesmerizing violin amber burst finish will cater this Custom 22's elegant beauty. The neck is carved from mahogany into PRS' wide fat neck profile, a deeper neck profile that yields incredible tone and sustainability thanks to it's strength and extended “heel”. The Brazilian rosewood fingerboard and headstock veneer scream luxury with captivating select abalone inlays and maple purfling (select abalone birds on fingerboard and select abalone private stock eagle on headstock).

This Custom 22 Private Stock comes equipped with two of Paul Reed Smith's coveted 59/09 treble and bass pickups, which will provide you with rich harmonic overtones, amazing articulation and great clarity. These pickups employ vintage-style wiring and were wound in-house by PRS's electronic department, allowing these pickups to produce that sought-after vintage tone of the timeless guitars of the '50s. The neck pickup adds a subtle brightness to your tone while the bridge pickup will deliver a bit more power. The tone of the 59/09 pickups can easily be tweaked to perfection using the simplistic single volume and tone controls, and features a push/pull coil tap to yield an expansive range of sonic possibilities.

The high-quality hardware is the cherry on top of this finely packaged instrument. The Custom 22 Private Stock features a gold/nickel PRS stoptail bridge for optimal stability and tonal quality and a set of the smooth, high-tolerance phase III tuning machines with Brazilian rosewood tuning peg buttons. For the premium protection of this top-shelf, Custom 22 Private Stock Brazilian #4597, a leather private stock hardshell case is included.
