The Modern Eagle V was previously only a limited run for Private Stock dealers. The Private Stock Modern Eagle V is “a sophisticated instrument, not only in terms of craftsmanship, but also electronically and mechanically,” said Paul Reed Smith.
The Private Stock Modern Eagle V utilizes a humbucker/single/humbucker pickup configuration and introduces a new and unique switching system that gives players a wide range of tones in one guitar. The 5-way switch selects the pickups just like the 509. The two paired mini-switches separate the slug-side coils, turning the humbuckers into true, "TCI-tuned" single coils.
This PRS has one volume knob and a push/pull tone knob that activates both humbuckers when turned on; this gives players access to three pickups at once.
A technical tour de force on the inside, and a work of art on the outside. The flamed maple top with 'Dragons Breath Glow' finish looks spectacular, as does the roasted curly maple neck with 'luminlay side-dots'
