Overview

Custom 24 8-String celebrates more. More regis­ters available; more chord options; more tonal range. Inspired by an 8-String designed with Periphery’s Mark Holcomb, these instruments 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 offer a snarling and aggressive tone that is also glassy and articulate. The August Custom 24 8-String models will be finished in Frost­bite Glow and ship to F#, B, E, A, D, G, B, E. Only eight of these instruments will be made for August 2016, commemorating Private Stock’s 20th Anniversary.

Wow! What an amazing instrument!

By Onofrio M

from Long Island

Pros

  • Amazing tone with increased range

Cons

    Best Uses

      Comments about PRS Private Stock Custom 24 8-String Electric Guitar:

      This instrument is perfect for drowning out the whining and hysterics of your wife and children being that you will have to sell your home to buy it. The tonality of that low F# totally make me forget that I have completely ruined my children's futures of going to college by buying this guitar. I couldn't believe how sleek and ergonomic the neck is! My hands feel even more comfortable on this than they did signing the mortgage against my home to buy it!

      Amazing instrument, PRS you've done it again!

      By Homeless Joe

      from My Parents' Basement

      Pros

      • Amazing Range
      • Classic PRS Quality
      • My feet are really calloused from going barefoot
      • My nosey neighbors moved away
      • Perfect Intonation

      Cons

      • I haven't eaten for a while
      • My kids have to ride the bus to school now
      • My nice neighbors moved away too
      • There are too many strings

      Best Uses

      • Figuring out what to do with the extra 2 strings
      • Learning what an F# actually is
      • Making your bass player irrelevant
      • Standing in the corner where grandma's China was

      Comments about PRS Private Stock Custom 24 8-String Electric Guitar:

      This guitar is HANDS DOWN the best purchase I have ever made! For the small price tag of my right arm and my liver, I would wholeheartedly recommend this to anybody who is wanting to get into the music world! After my wife kicked me out, I had plenty of time to play it in my parent's basement, because I didn't have to listen to her whining about all of this finance nonsense. The musical journey has been so worth it, and I wouldn't have done anything differently if I had to do it again.

        Comments about PRS Private Stock Custom 24 8-String Electric Guitar:

        This is hands down the best guitar I've ever played! I works great in my progressive blues trio. Craftmanship is top notch, and it sounds just like my Tremonti SE, which is my main 6 string. I play it through a Line 6 spider, and a metal zone, and blues driver for versatility. Its worth every penny, and then some. Kudos to PRS for making such an outstanding instrument! Just buy it!

        Comments about PRS Private Stock Custom 24 8-String Electric Guitar:

        I purchased this guitar for my nephew who is an avid Meshuggah/Marine Biology fan. This instrument is top notch when it comes to summoning marine life such as Dolphins, Lobsters, Squid, and much more. Unfortunately his vessel struck a berg and sank. This guitar did not offer safe floatation as advertised.
