The eagle has landed! The Paul Reed Smith Private Stock Super Eagle, that is. Through close collaboration with renowned Grammy-winning artist John Mayer, PRS is proud to introduce a stunning limited edition of exceptional caliber to their premium “Private Stock” collection. Limited to a mere 100 instruments worldwide, John Mayer teamed up with Paul Reed Smith himself to design a truly distinctive, extraordinary guitar that not only honors the tradition of guitar making, but pushes the envelope as far as sound, design, materials, craftsmanship, and aesthetics.
So, what sets this rare bird apart from the rest?
- A longer 25.375″ scale length (compared to the standard 25″ scale length found on many PRS models)
- Specially-voiced pickups wound to Mayer’s unique specs including 58/15 JM humbuckers (bridge/neck positions) and a Narrowfield JM humbucker (middle position)
- Special electronics including 3 mini switches for coil-tapping capabilities and a premium JCF Audio preamp with an onboard Treble boost switch for instant lead tones
- Distinctive interior label in the F-hole that was hand-signed by John and drawn up by Mayer’s friend David Smith, who also designed the cover art for Mayer’s Born and Raised album
