PRS Guitars is proud to offer a small batch of “Reclaimed Limited”
instruments that showcases two exotic wood species new to PRS:
Peroba Rosa and Brauna Preto. This reclaimed wood, which is
native to southeastern Brazil’s Atlantic Forest, is typically more
than 100 years old. PRS Guitars Senior Wood Manager, Michael
Reid, sourced these woods from old buildings, noting that their
density, unique aesthetic, and history would lend them to guitar
making.
“Michael has been sourcing wood for me and the company since
before there was an official ‘PRS Guitars.’ Wood is our lifeblood,
and I trust Michael’s instincts. This old, reclaimed wood is
wonderfully resonant and beautiful. Hearing these guitars now,
I just have to smile knowing Michael was right again,” said Paul
Reed Smith.
Peroba Rosa, typically used as siding, was selected for the top
wood. The density of this wood combined with the semi-hollow
body construction give the Reclaimed Limited CE24 Semi-Hollow
and S2 Vela Semi-Hollow a unique sound that is punchy but also
warm and full. Brauna Preto, typically used as the supporting
posts of these old buildings, is used for the fretboards due to its
tight-grain and sustain. These guitars are finished in Natural satin
nitro. Any nail holes and any wear or discoloration have been left
in the top wood to showcase its history. By leaving the Peroba
in its most “original” form, every instrument is rendered unique
with each top boasting its own character.
“The forest has come full circle, so to speak. I like to think
using this wood showcases Brazil’s rich history of music and
guitar making,” said Michael Reid, PRS Senior Wood Manager.
“Reclaiming these timbers also allows me to personally make a
contribution to sustaining and celebrating Brazil’s resources.”
Production on these Reclaimed Limited guitars will be capped
at approximately 600 instruments,
