When a selection of wide-curl Maple tops were making their way into the Private Stock Wood Vault, Paul Reed Smith knew they should be saved for something special. That special something ended up being the Paul's 85.
‘Paul’s 85’ are a special run of Private Stock guitars, painstakingly spec'd by Paul and meticulously crafted by the Private Stock team. Paul picked the tops, the selection of woods, assisted on the neck shapes of every guitar, spec'd the pickups and played and adjusted each guitar until it was just right. The team executed each detail while he looked after each instrument on a daily basis.
We’re lucky to have received the very first example of this limited run here in the UK, and we couldn’t be more proud to put it through its tonal paces, to give you an idea of just what the Private Stock team can achieve.
