PRS Guitars are celebrating the company's 35th anniversary in 2020 with their PRS Private Stock 35th Anniversary Dragon. Paul Reed Smith Dragon model guitars are among the most prized PRS models ever developed and the 35th Anniversary Dragon is one of the most elegant Dragons yet.
Jeff Easley, a fantasy artist famous for some of Dungeons & Dragons rulebook covers has designed the elaborate and fantastical dragon inlay which has been recreated for the fretboard of this 35th anniversary model by Aulson inlay. The finished inlay has been created for the fretboard using a wide array of materials including: Green Ripple Abalone, Green Abalone Select, Black Mother of Pearl, Stabilized Sand-Shaded Holly, Red with Gold Vein Recon Stone, Raffir Striped Black, Black and Red Raffir Aluminum Wave, Abaloid Acrylic, Nocturne Corian, as well as Blue Pacific, Citrine, and Flame Synthetic Opal.
The PRS 35th Anniversary Dragon is based on the PRS McCarty model, which features a thicker back, PRS PRS Stoptail bridge, and a classic volume, push/ pull tone control, and 3-way toggle electronics layout. This model is enhanced with the TCI model pickups from the Paul’s Guitar and tweaked Phase III Locking tuners for a unique balance of vintage and modern specifications. The excuisite Private Stock grade tone woods were hand selected for this limited series and include a curly maple top, African ribbon mahogany back, and a chaltecoco Pattern neck with a 25” scale length, 22 fret ziricote fingerboard. This 35th Anniversary Dragon is finished in Frostbite Dragon’s Breath which sports a lighter colour (or "glow") towards the belly of the guitar that mimics the shape of a flame shooting out of a dragon’s mouth.
The Private Stock 35th Anniversary Dragon will be limited to 135 pieces worldwide and Wildwire Guitars are delighted to be able to offer this very special guitar for pre-order now.
