Reintroduced in 2021, the PRS Special Semi-Hollow is a versatile and beautiful instrument. This Private Stock Special Semi-Hollow Limited Edition keeps many of the appointments of the Core model, includ- ing a 22-fret, 25” scale length neck, semi-hollow body with single f-hole, and hum-Narrowfield-hum pickup configuration, and adds Private Stock material choices and craftsmanship for a unique small batch of guitars.
This Private Stock limited edition features stunning woods from the Private Stock Vault, including a highly-figured maple top, a Black Limba back and neck, ziricote fretboard, truss rod cover, and head- stock veneer. Finished with white mother of pearl and paua inlays, smoked black hardware, and a high- gloss nitro Citrus Glow finish, these instruments are true examples of the Private Stock team at work.
“What I love about running Limited Edition instruments in Private Stock is that it gives the team the opportunity to showcase our work on our own terms,” said Paul Miles, PRS Director of Private Stock. “We chose the Special Semi-Hollow model because the pickup and electronics configuration is extremely versatile, providing highly musical tones. The choice of Black Limba for the back and neck add to the tonal balance while the smoked black hardware against the Citrus Glow finish create a dramatic aesthetic contrast.”
Built with players in mind, Private Stock instruments take the craft of guitar-making to the next level, so collectors, art aficionados, and musicians alike will enjoy.
Only 85 of these PRS Private Stock Special Semi-Hollow Limited Edition instruments will be made.
