    Announcing: NOS Modern Eagle!

    The original Modern Eagle has been described as a Private Stock style production guitar and is representative of the guitar that Paul Smith personally performed with at the time. In addition to these distinctions, these instruments also feature Brazilian rosewood necks and fretboards. Brazilian rosewood has long been considered by musical instrument builders and collectors as a cherished tone wood with extraordinary aesthetic characteristics and rich sustain. Its exceptional tone and quality arguably make Brazilian rosewood the most coveted wood in the music industry.

    Each one of these “new old stock” instruments has been updated with “tweaked” Phase II tuners. The fretboards have been cleaned and dressed and the necks oiled. Some retain their original pickups, serial numbers, and the original hang tags are included in the cases (a new hangtag was completed as each instrument was re-cased). Others that were set aside earlier in the manufacturing process will be built to current spec. PRS is pleased to make these instruments available for players and collectors in the United States.

    No solid number yet, still going through old inventory, but not many will be available

    Immediate release

    Call your dealer for price

    Now that's all kinds of cool! Were they guitars that weren't finished or shipped before the BRW embargo?
