The PRS Reclaimed Limited Series marks one of PRS' boldest projects, offering a small batch of “Reclaimed Limited” instruments that showcase 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.
Offering affordable quality has always been something of a mantra for the PRS SE series. Whilst saving cost in production by having the instruments built outside of America, the SE series has always retained an extremely high level of build quality. The Exotic series are an evolution of this. Offering unbelievably stylish tops on the standard series of SE models, PRS have brought an instrument to the market that looks twice its price.
Beautiful, unique, and very stylish, the SE Exotics have no rival at their price point. Pre order today.
