NAMM 2018: There’s just no stopping PRS at NAMM this year, and the company’s fifth announcement so far - at least by our count - is the positively drool-worthy Private Stock Hollowbody II 594 Limited Edition.
Limited to just 60 models, the Limited Edition tweaks PRS’s Hollowbody II format, packing 58/15 LT II pickups, as well as volume and push/pull tone controls for each humbucker.
Elsewhere, it offers a two-piece bridge, 24.594” scale length and Pattern Vintage neck carve.
Visual appointments come courtesy of purfling, inlays and figured maple top and back, and the model is available in four finishes: Aqua Violet Smoked Burst, McCarty Glow Smoked Burst, Laguna Glow Smoked Burst, and Platinum Smoked Burst.
The news follows a boatload of other NAMM releases from PRS, including limited-edition S2 Studio and DW CE 24 ‘Floyd’ guitars, new SE models and entire line updates, six new SE Acoustics and the Custom 24-08.
