The Story: 30th Anniversary “Vine” Guitars
Posted Jun 09, 2015
Behind The Gear
At PRS we care a lot about the art of guitar making. Things like quality, innovation, and a guitar’s aesthetic beauty keep us excited about our next build.
To celebrate our 30th Anniversary of guitar building and continue our love of the art we are releasing the 30th Anniversary “Vine” guitars. Two of our popular core models, the Custom 22 and McCarty, will be adorned with Mother of Pearl 30th Anniversary Bird Inlays and Paua Vines down the fretboard. This elegant new design will be crafted in a small batch of only 100 guitars.
The design came to life through a brainstorm with our friends at Aulson Inlay, the same company PRS worked with to produce the 30th Anniversary Private Stock Dragon. Soon a rough “Vine” sketch came to life.
Mother of Pearl and Paua was carefully assembled and placed in the Gaboon Ebony fretboard by hand.
To compliment the elegant fretboard design, each of the 30th Anniversary “Vine” Guitars feature a highly figured Artist Grade Maple top.
The Vine guitars will also feature a highly figured Artist Grade Maple neck.
