The PRS Private Stock Modern Eagle V is a masterpiece destined to be passed down for generations, bringing together exotic tonewoods, versatile electronics and rock-solid hardware for a one-of-a-kind guitar. Handcrafted in the USA by Paul Reed Smith's master luthiers, the Modern Eagle V starts with a stunning curly maple top paired with an ebony fingerboard for both beauty and silky playability. The pattern neck fits comfortably in your hand, while the wood choices give this PRS a look that stands out from the crowd. With the Modern Eagle V, you get an heirloom-quality instrument personalized just for you.

Gorgeous Exotic Woods and Meticulous Craftsmanship For Heirloom Quality

From its eye-catching maple top to the patterned ebony fingerboard, the Modern Eagle V exhibits exotic woods selected for their beauty and tonal properties. The one-piece black limba body offers balanced resonance across the frequency spectrum, while the curly maple top adds crispness and definition. With a flawless high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish and ornate abalone and mother-of-pearl inlays, this PRS guitar is built for generations of playing. Every detail of the Modern Eagle V, from its comfortable carve to the smoked black hardware, shows PRS's commitment to heirloom-quality instruments.

Versatile Humbucker and Single Coil Pickup Configuration With Coil-Splitting

The Modern Eagle V provides exceptional tonal flexibility with its 408B humbuckers and narrow single coil pickup. Use the 5-way blade switch to access a wide range of tones from thick, warm humbucker sounds to clear, crystalline single coil tones. The push/pull coil-splitting allows you to get single coil tones from each humbucker for even more variety. You can also change the volume pot value with the third mini-toggle to further shape your sound. With this versatile pickup configuration, the Modern Eagle V handles everything from rock to blues to country.

PRS Tremolo Bridge and Locking Tuners Provide Rock-Solid Tuning Stability

Keeping the Modern Eagle V in tune during heavy use is the proprietary PRS tremolo bridge with Gen III locking saddles and Phase III locking tuners. The knife-edge bridge allows for precise tuning as well as smooth tremolo effects, while the locking tuners keep the strings anchored firmly to the headstock. Combined with the bone nut, these components deliver exceptional tuning stability even under aggressive playing. You can rely on the Modern Eagle V to stay in tune song after song.

Personalized Attention to Every Detail

As part of the Private Stock line, the Modern Eagle V receives PRS's undivided attention from start to finish. Master builders hand-select the perfect pieces of curly maple and ebony, personally crafting each component to extract the most tone and beauty. Even the inlays receive special consideration, with green abalone outlines that make the pattern neck pop. With a "one-off" approach, no two Modern Eagle V's are alike. Yours will stand out with its own unique character and voice.

For players who want a custom electric that stands above the rest, the PRS Private Stock Modern Eagle V delivers. With exotic woods, versatile sound-shaping options and rock-solid hardware, it's built to inspire for years to come.
