PRS Guitars Celebrates 20th Anniversary of Private Stock with June Guitar of the Month

What better way to celebrate then with Paul’s Guitar?

(STEVENSVILLE, MD) June 9, 2016 – PRS Guitars is celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Private Stock with a revival of the program that started it all: Guitars of the Month. Each month in 2016, the Private Stock team will be offering a unique design in limited numbers that will highlight the fine craftsmanship and remarkable playability that the Private Stock team is known for while utilizing some of the most deluxe materials available. For June, PRS is releasing a Paul’s Guitar model. Personally designed and appointed by Paul Reed Smith, Paul’s Guitar is a highly musical instrument that features two 408N treble and bass pickups and a versatile coil tap system. This Private Stock edition features slightly modified brushstroke bird inlays and “Strad” purfling along the fingerboard, headstock, and truss rod cover. Only ten of these instruments will be made for June 2016.

“When Private Stock built the first Paul’s Guitar, I knew we had something special that I would be playing for a long time. I really liked the newly designed brushstroke birds, and the new single coil toned 408 pickups. Now I could get with my guitar exactly what I was shooting for…a big fat sound that was wonderfully clear combined with a super resonant guitar which I loved.” said Paul Reed Smith.

The original Guitars of the Month were cased between December 1994 and March 1996. They provided the opportunity to experiment with new ideas and led directly to the creation of the Private Stock program, with the first “official” Private Stock instrument casing on April 19, 1996. Paul Reed Smith has been leading the department for the last several years, driving innovation, quality craftsmanship, and unparalleled attention to detail.

“Private Stock is very special to me. It is an amazingly passionate team working with our most treasured materials and new designs. These craftsmen are building heirloom quality pieces of art that play and sound as good as any guitar I have ever played. I am very proud to be celebrating 20 years of Private Stock with the Guitar of the Month program and the Paul’s Guitar model” Paul Reed Smith.

Specifications include: Curly maple top, African ribbon mahogany back and backplates, 22-fret, 25” scale length “Pattern” curly Peruvian mahogany neck, African blackwood fingerboard with gold mother of pearl “modified” brushstroke birds and mother of pearl, maple, and gold mother of pearl “Strad” purfling, mother of pearl sidedots, African blackwood headstock veneer with Gold mother of pearl “modified” Brushstroke eagle and a mother of pearl “June” engraved “new” banner as well as mother of pearl, maple, and gold mother of pearl “Strad” style purfling, African blackwood truss rod cover with mother of pearl, maple, and gold mother of pearl “Strad” purfling, Persimmon high gloss nitro finish with Cherry Smoked Burst, 408N treble and bass pickups with volume and tone controls, 3-way toggle switch, and two mini coil-tap switches, gold/nickel Gen III tremolo with locking saddles, Phase III locking tuners with African blackwood buttons, hybrid hardware, 10 gauge strings, and a Private Stock 20th Anniversary black comet tolex case.

News: Rocktron Launches New MicroHUSH

Rocktron Launches New MicroHUSH

Rocktron, world leaders in guitar noise reduction, are proud to launch the MicroHUSH, the world famous HUSH noise reduction pedal in a micro chassis. It wipes out hiss, unwanted feedback and pickup buzz while maintaining music signal integrity and takes up less space on pedalboards.

Pedalboard space is always at a premium. The compact rugged chassis of the MicroHUSH has minimal impact on pedal-rigs and maximum impact on guitar related noise problems. It is a true bypass pedal: when turned off it is out of the signal path.

Easy to use, for the best results simply plug in the MicroHush after distortion boxes, wahs, noisy vintage effect and turn the threshold control knob until the noise goes away. Like all Rocktron HUSH products, the MicroHUSH tracks the signal all the way to ensure no chopped off notes or altered sustain and achieves up to 65dB of signal clean up. (Please note to eliminate 60 cycle ground loop hum, Rocktron recommend using the Buzz Kill AC Audio Isolation Transformer.)

The MicroHUSH specifications are: -
Input Impedance470kΩ
Output Impedance1kΩ
Maximum Input+5dBu
Maximum Output+5dBu
Current Consumption15mA
Power Requirement9V DC OnTap Universal Power Supply (sold separately) is recommended. 2.1mm Jack Negative Tip/Positive Barrel
Dimensions3 5/8" x 2 1/8" x 2"
(92mm x 54mm x 48mm)
Weight5.3oz (150g)

The MicroHUSH is the latest member of the renowned HUSH family that includes the HUSH Super C, HUSH Pro, HUSH Ultra, HUSH the Pedal and HUSH 2X. The new MicroHUSH is currently being used out on tour by Scott Middleton (Cancer Bats), Marc Rizzo (Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy) and The Used.

Updated the micro-board with a riiiiidiculous vintage chorus from Aria (check those things out, they're serious) and the completely awesome Gunslinger MOSFET Distortion from my boys at @digitechfx and ‪#‎dodpedals‬. Definitely in the top 3 of distortion pedals I've ever played. Massive response.

Tony MacAlpine, Nili Brosh: plays "Confessions of a Medieval Monument" on EMGtv

This final video in our series of performances with Tony MacAlpine certainly has the flavor of a neo-classical piece, but with Tony's unique tone and feel. Tony and his band perform "Confessions of a Medieval Monument" live on EMGtv, featuring fellow EMG artist Nili Brosh along with Pete Griffin on bass, and Aquiles Priester on drums. Tony and Nili are both playing the EMG 57-7H and EMG 66-7H humbucker pickups for seven string guitar. These pickups beautifully capture the singing harmonies between these two guitar players.
