Thread: Does PRS Private stock match finshes too?

  1. #1

    Does PRS Private stock match finshes too?

    A dream guitar of mine back in 2000 got sold right before my eyes and I still have Pictures of it.

    I was wondering if I give them a picture of finish top, will they match it for me?

    I am willing to spare 13k if I could resurrect my dream guitar.

    I've talked to Paul Miles about matching colours (I have a secret project in mind) and he said that if I gave him a colour they could match it. I trust Paul.

    Keep in mind that the colour will vary with the grain and the colour spectrum may not exactly match that of the old guitar - bu tgive him a colour and that colour will be there.

    As a for example, when I had my spalt built I picked a spot on the top that I wanted the back and neck to be colour matched to - I'm very happy with the result.

    So if it's a quilted top, quilt may not match but overall Finished color is the same?

    Yes.
    Include a picture of what you want to match.
    I'm pretty sure that they can repeat it colourwise.

    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.
