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.

Only eight of these instruments will be made for August 2016, commemorating Private Stock’s 20th Anniversary.

Cons

  • I haven't eaten for a while
  • My kids have to ride the bus to school now

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:

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.

    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!
