PRS Private Stock Singlecut Archtop

The PRS Private Stock Singlecut Archtop model delivers tone, playability, and elegance to pro-level players and collectors alike. By combining tried and true design with original thinking, Private Stock has taken the spruce top archtop guitar and built on the PRS acoustic design platform to create a robustly built instrument with exceptional resonance, tone, and articulation.

PRS Private Stock Singlecut Archtop

The PRS Private Stock Singlecut Archtop has a 3.171” deep body. Like PRS acoustics, the back and sides of the Archtop are “locked down” while the Sitka spruce top is left to vibrate freely.

The top’s integral, parallel bracing further support the instrument’s build integrity and resonance; while the guitar’s Private Stock aluminum bronze bridge with brass saddles and solid ebony tailpiece further support the instrument’s woody depth and richness without sacrificing articulation.
