PRS Add Private Stock 8-String To Custom 24 Range

The Private Stock Custom 24 8-string was designed with Periphery’s Mark Holcomb, with the instruments built allow players’ creativity to take over with no limitations. Thanks to their extended range, 8-string guitars inspire new technique and unorthodox compositions that can work with any musical style.

The inclusion of Holcomb’s signature Seymour Duncan Alpha and Omega pickups  (also found on his Signature SE Model) offer a snarling and aggressive tone that is also glassy and articulate. The Custom 24 8-String models will be finished in the eye-catching Frostbite Glow and ship tuned to F#, B, E, A, D, G, B, E.


The downside? Only eight of these instruments will be made for August 2016, commemorating Private Stock’s 20th Anniversary, so you know they will be expensive. 


The real question is though, are we about to see 8-string production models from PRS? Our fingers are crossed. 


PRS guitars are distributed nationally via Electric Factory.
