PRS Guitars recently announced the fifth installment of their Modern Eagle series of guitars with the new Private Stock Limited Edition! The new guitar is unique in that it features a host of versatile options for the modern player, such as:
- A hum/single/hum (five-coil) pickup configuration. Two paired mini-toggles separate the slug-side coils which turn the humbuckers into true “TCI-tuned” single coils.
- A push/pull tone control that activates both humbuckers when engaged which allows players to access all three pickups at the same time.
- A third mini-toggle which changes the volume pot value from 500k (traditional on humbucking guitars for brighter output) to 250k (traditional on single-coil guitars for slightly darker output), allowing players to fine-tune their pickup output in each setting.
About the Private Stock Modern Eagle V, Paul Reed Smith had this to say:
“The Private Stock Modern Eagle V is a sophisticated instrument not only in its craftsmanship but in its electronic and mechanical design. Modern Eagle models have always been built to stand up to history while celebrating tonewoods and the discovery of new tones. These instruments are the embodiment of the that tradition married with the bold innovation of Private Stock and a new pickup system.”
