We are beyond thrilled to share our Wood Library Run for the 10th Anniversary of Northeast Music Center! We are truly appreciative that you folks have been able to help us stay in business for the last 10 years. We are also grateful to have been associating with Paul Reed Smith guitars for the last 25 years as Store Owner, Jack Gretz, has been dealing with PRS Guitars for the last 25 years. This wood library Run we decided to put together a special build of Custom 24 Fatback Guitars that pay tribute to the original Private Stock guitars and what we consider to be our signature Wood Library model.
What is a Custom 24 Fatback? "Fatback" is a feature usually reserved for Wood Library and Private Stock guitars. A typical Core Custom 24's body will average 1" wide. Our Wood Library Custom 24 Fatbacks average at 1.5" wide. Making them similar in thickness to a McCarty body style.
In addition, we've also changed up the electronics configuration. A Push/Pull Tone knob and 3 way toggle switch replaces the Typical 5-way Blade switch found on most Core Custom 24s.
These Custom 24 Fatbacks will feature 20 total guitars with 10 Guitars featuring Artist Grade Flame Maple Tops stained in Tiger Eye with Highly figured Curly Maple Necks stained to match the Tiger Eye Finish on the guitar and 58/15LT+ Pickups.
This guitar has an African Blackwood fretboard with Bird Inlays. The inlays will be made with Paua for the rims and Green Ripple Centers.
All 20 Guitars will feature the critically acclaimed PRS 58/15LT+ Pickups with McCarty style switching (3- Way Toggle, Volume, Push-Pull Tone).
Each guitar will come with a special commemorative slip for the 10th Anniversary of Northeast Music Center Inc.
