You are looking at a Paul Reed Smith Limited Edition Private Stock "Super Eagle" John Mayer Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar, serial number 231027. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (7 lbs, 12.2 oz.)

Paul Reed Smith teamed up with Grammy Award-winning musician John Mayer to create an unbelievably exquisite top-shelf instrument for the exclusive PRS Private Stock collection, which consists of only the finest instruments that PRS has to offer. Limited to only 100 pieces worldwide, the Paul Reed Smith Private Stock "Super Eagle" was designed to offer a distinctive, extraordinary guitar that not only honors the tradition of guitar making, but pushes the envelope as far as sound, design, materials, craftsmanship, and aesthetics.

A truly rare bird, the Paul Reed Smith Private Stock "Super Eagle" boasts a palette of unique features including a longer 25.375" scale length (compared to PRS's typical 25" scale length), specially-voiced pickups wound to Mayer's specs including 58/15 JM bridge/neck pickups and a Narrowfield JM middle pickup, and special electronics including 3 mini switches for coil-tapping capabilities and a premium JCF Audio preamp with an onboard Treble boost switch for instant lead tones. The bright, clear tones delivered by these pickups have been heard in venues across the United States in John's recent performances with Dead & Company. The Private Stock "Super Eagle" also showcases a distinctive interior label in the f-hole that was hand-signed by John and drawn up by Mayer's friend David Smith, who also designed the cover art for Mayer's Born and Raised album.

Each and every spec and appointment on the Private Stock "Super Eagle" was carefully selected by Mayer and Paul, including the premium-grade curly maple top, the Private Stock-grade curly maple back and neck, and the exclusive high-gloss nitro JM McCarty Tobacco finish, which was specially formulated at Mayer's request so that the burst wasn't too dark along the edges. Made with only the finest materials available at PRS, the Private Stock "Super Eagle" features a Brazilian rosewood fretboard with curly maple binding, Green Ripple Abalone "Old School" bird fingerboard inlays and a 12th fret violin bird, a Brazilian rosewood headstock veneer with an etched "Old School" Private Stock Eagle in mother of pearl, a nickel Private Stock Gen III tremolo, and tweaked Phase III locking tuners with ebony buttons. Comes complete with a special hardshell Paisley case.
