Gorgeous Paul Reed Smith Private Stock DGT (2016 April Guitar of the Month) in mint condition, complete with all case candy and COA.
Based on the original McCarty model, the DGT adds a signature neck shape, taller frets (and larger gauge strings), custom-spec’d pickups, and a unique control configuration. Take those distinctive features and bring it to Private Stock’s Guitar of the Month program, and all the details add up to be a show-stopping take on a very iconic PRS model. Only twenty of these instruments were made for April 2016, commemorating Private Stock’s 20th Anniversary.
The DGT neck shape is based on two of Grissom’s favorite PRS guitars and comes in between a Pattern/Wide Fat and a Pattern Regular/Regular. The larger frets and 11-gauge strings, combined with other appointments (thicker profile, 22-fret neck, etc.), give the DGT a massive tone. The pickups were finalized after a year of meticulous hands-on testing. The resulting tone has ample depth without losing any openness as well as impressive versatility. The control layout features two volume controls and a push/ pull coil-split, providing tons of versatility and control.
