The Super Eagle II is a direct collaboration between Paul Reed Smith and Mayer, and is made to their specifications, including a 25.375” scale length; 58/15 JM treble and bass pickups; and a Narrowfield JM pickup in the middle position with three individual coil-tap switches. It also has a JCF Audio preamp with treble boost, and a hand signed letter in the f-hole of the guitar.
The new model also differs from the Super Eagle that Mayer has been playing on his most recent tour with the inclusion of a one-piece private stock curly maple back, an African blackwood fingerboard and headstock veneer, as well as a new colour – Hemp Green.
Unfortunately for the majority of fans the Private Stock Super Eagle II will be limited to 120 instruments, so don’t count on actually being able to purchase one.
