PRS has announced that it will be releasing a very limited edition run of guitars made from reclaimed wood that is over 100 years old. The Reclaimed Limited series will be comprised of two models, the CE24 Semi-Hollow and the S2 Vela Semi-Hollow, using wood species that are native to southeastern Brazil’s Atlantic Forest: Peroba Rosa and Brauna Preto.
The Peroba Rosa was selected for the top wood, its density giving the semi-hollow body construction of both models a punchy, yet warm sound. The Brauna Preto, which is typically used in supporting posts for some of the old buildings from which it was sourced, was used in the fretboards because of its tight-grain and sustain.
The guitars were then finished with a natural satin nitro, with blemishes from nail holes and discolouration being left in the top wood in order to showcase the unique history of each instrument.
PRS Guitars are distributed in Australia through Electric Factory.
