  • From the insert (included with guitar): 
    • "This wonderful Teal Blue McCarty Hollowbody II Private Stock guitar was designed and handmade by Joseph Knaggs, Dave Hazel and myself. The silver etched birds are beautiful. This guitar was specially made for the 1998 NAMM show. The brilliance of the stain on this instrument took hours to achieve and turned out to be one of the most stunning blue guitars we have ever built. The guitar also has a Brazilian rosewood neck which gives this guitar a unique elegant sound. The Hollowbody II is a great new addition to our line for 1998 and this guitar sets the pace for what is to come." - Paul Reed Smith

About Private Stock

(from; 2009)

Our Goal

PRS Guitars’ strives to build the highest quality instruments possible. Our goal in the Private Stock program is to do this same thing, but take it up another level. We want to offer you a unique, “one off” instrument, built with the skills of the best craftsmen at PRS Guitars. We will build you a special instrument that you can call your own and enjoy playing day after day. It is our hope that this instrument will become a favorite part of your personal collection and will be valued enough to eventually be passed on to your loved ones in the years to come.

In a nut shell, our goal is to take your breath away when you open the case for the first time, and every time thereafter.

What is the Private Stock Program

The Private Stock program is best described as a “business inside a business”. The program allows you to spec out and personalize your own instrument from a skilled, respected, major guitar manufacturer. We work very closely with each order to make sure it can be the best instrument possible. The Private Stock team consists of a small crew of highly talented, seasoned guitar makers. The woods are carefully picked from our “Private Stash” and these extraordinary pieces of wood are some of the best instrument grade woods found on the planet. Each guitar is stained with a complex special technique to bring out the most figure and create a unprecedented three dimensionality. The instrument is carefully guided through each craftsman’s hands, and finally checked by Paul and myself to ensure the best instrument possible. Each instrument is signed by Paul and receives a Private Stock number along with a letter of authenticity describing the specifications and feature of that particular instrument.
