    The PRS private stock I ordered last year finally arrived 2 days ago and I've finally got around to posting the photos the GF took of them. Without further ado...pics.

    Specs wise, I did go with a few features not on the core lines, namely

    Stainless Steel DGT frets
    14" radius
    Small neck heel
    Trem up route

    Woods wise its south american mahogany body, quilt maple top, ebony fretboard, honduran rosewood neck. I had asked for the neck humbucker to be the "right" way round, with the screws nearer the neck(unlike most custom 24-08s), but they did the same thing for the bridge humbucker as well, where the slugs. Haven't spend enough time to pick up what differences in tone it has, does anyone have any input on this?

    I haven't had enough time with this yet to post a proper review but in the next few days I shall.

    Its a slightly lighter graphite smoked burst with less greys. It's a very 3d stain. Weirdly, at certain angles, the quilt was quite understated(i think due to lack of contrast in the centre regions) but at certain angles you can see it really pop. I like it, makes the finish look "alive" and as the GF puts it, like ripples through a puddle of water.

    I will never pass up an opportunity to oogle a Private Stock NGD.
    That looks like pure class dude, loving the choice of gold hardware. Really pulls the finish together, especially with the gold slugs/screws in the pickups. Tasty.
