OVERVIEW

A labor of love made with the finest materials and craftsmanship.

PRS Violin guitars are deeply rooted in the Paul Reed Smith belief that the guitar is the violin of our time. Starting with a limited run of Violin guitars that featured European maple tops (thought to be from the same forest that Stradivarious got his maple from) and Pernambuco necks (a rare wood historically used to make violin bows), PRS is proud to continue the tradition with the Private Stock Violin II. Violin II instruments also take their lead from violins and violas this time by pairing curly maple necks with ebony fretboards, œViolin finish color (a beautiful glowing amber/gold reminiscent of old violins), and Private Stock' new œStrad purfling on the neck and headstock.

Features include a carved figured maple top, lightweight mahogany back, 25 scale length, 22 fret Pattern curly maple neck, ebony fretboard and headstock veneer, gold mother-of-pearl œViolin bird inlays and headstock eagle, œStrad fretboard and headstock purfling, plated nickel/silver 57/08 pickups with one volume and one push/pull tone control with a 3-way toggle pickup switch, PRS Phase III locking tuners, PRS stoptail bridge with brass inserts, hybrid hardware, and a paisley hardshell case.

    Comments about PRS Private Stock PS4899 Violin Curly Maple/Mahogany Electric Guitar:

    Plug it into a good tube amp and make music happen. Crazy tone and possibly even better looks. Fit and finish is as one would expect from an instrument of this caliber. Neck feels and looks great and the ebony board is a nice change of pace from the typical rosewood on most of today's electrics. Pot taper is smooth and easy to use. Holds its own and outplays (in my humble opinion) with reissues from the other big brands of similar or greater price range.
