Guitar Of The Week:Paul Reed Smith - Private Stock Santana!

Guitar Of The Week - Musician's Friend Private Reserve

Santana Stoptail 22 Fret

A one-of-a-kind masterpiece by the world-renowned Private Stock  Department at Paul Reed Smith Guitars, this instrument is worthy of  being the centerpiece of any fine guitar collection. Generously loaded  with outstanding aesthetic appointments, beautiful woods, and  player-friendly features, this guitar looks as good as it sounds.  Features include a quilted maple top in a sultry and vibrant Solana  Burst finish, a thick mahogany back, and a rosewood neck. The 22-fret  rosewood fingerboard is dressed with PRS "old style" mother-of-pearl  bird inlays with 14k gold outlines and has a Santana fat/thin neck  profile and a short 24.5" scale for supreme playing comfort. The PRS  14:1 Phase II low-mass locking tuners with rosewood buttons are smooth,  accurate, and extremely stable and the two-piece, adjustable bridge and  stop tail brings out more of a mid-range woodiness in the tone to really  make this guitar unique and special.

The Private Stock Santana stoptail has additional tasty cosmetic  touches such as a Private Stock mother-of-pearl eagle inlay with 14k  gold outline on the headstock; curly maple binding on the body,  fingerboard, and headstock; gold/nickel hardware; Brazilian rosewood  headstock overlay, truss rod cover, and backplates; and a glossy  nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Don't miss your opportunity to own this  heirloom quality instrument.
