Paul Reed Smith Private Stock Custom 24 8-String August Guitar of The Month
The August 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.
