2019 PRS Private Stock Modern Eagle V Northern Lights
Watchtower Guitars is excited to announce our partnership with Paul Reed Smith Guitars is growing to new levels after NAMM 2020. We now have the best selection of Core, Bolt On, S2 and SE models in the tri-state area. In the next few months we'll be visiting the factory to spec out our first run of PRS Private Stock guitars as well. All of these guitars are available to be tested at our new location in Morristown NJ. Please contact us to make an appointment. Working with us at Watchtower Guitars is a full tone experience not just a transaction.
Just in out of a private collection this mint Private Stock Modern Eagle V in Northern Lights high gloss nitro finish is a functional piece of art. There are so many great sounds that this guitar can do as well as the beautiful woods that PRS choose. As per PRS below.
This PRS Private Stock Modern Eagle V Limited in Northern Lights is part of a very small run of 120 guitars, of which only 60 are available in the United States.
“The Private Stock Modern Eagle V is a sophisticated instrument not only in its craftsmanship but electronically and mechanically,” said Paul Reed Smith. “Modern Eagle models have always been designed to stand up to history while celebrating tonewoods and the discovery of new tones. These instruments are the embodiment of that tradition married with the bold innovation of Private Stock and a new pickup system.”
The Private Stock Modern Eagle V utilizes a hum/single/hum (five-coil) pickup configuration and introduces a new and unique switching system that gives players a vast array of tones in one guitar. The 5-way blade switch selects the pickups just as the 509 does (treble, treble and middle, middle, middle and bass, bass). The two paired mini-toggles separate the slug-side coils, turning the humbuckers into true, “TCI-tuned” single coils. There is a single volume and a push/pull tone control that activates both humbuckers when engaged; this allows players to access three pickups simultaneously. Finally, there is a third mini-toggle that changes the volume pot value from 500k to 250k, which gives the guitar a different palette of tones. This electronics design puts a whole set of classic and new tones at your fingertips.
The Bottom line: The new Modern Eagle V Limited Edition is a special instrument, producing real, highly-musical tones for both recording and playing live.
This is the first time the Modern Eagle model has been offered as a Limited Edition through Private Stock, and PRS will be capping production at 120 instruments, 60 for the US, and 60 for the rest of the world.
