2015 PRS Collection Series IX McCarty Trem Curly Maple Aqua Violet Smoked Burst
From PRS (2015):
The PRS Collection Series was introduced in the Fall of 2011, and began with our dream of building the best guitar model we could. After sorting out the very best materials and woods, in 2011 the Collection Series I McCarty was released in a limited quantity alongside the Collection Series 1 Tonare Grand Acoustic. These prized instruments and our subsequent Collection instruments incorporate a balance of PRS traditions and innovations and are built with care to our exacting methods.
Paul Reed Smith and our Private Stock team have designed and built a total of nine Collection Models since 2011, all in exclusive limited quantities.
Our ninth and latest series, Collection Series IX, is comprised of fifteen pairs of McCarty Trem models, with each pair consisting of one curly and one quilted maple top guitar. Collection Series IX celebrates our company’s 30th Anniversary and is featured in a beautiful Aqua Violet Smoked Burst.
SETUP & INSPECTED BY OUR LUTHIER
Weight: 7.8 lbs
Case: Original Hardshell Case
Cosmetic Condition: Guitar is in very good, near excellent condition. Only issues are some light scratches on the pickups and light pick scratches on the top of the guitar. Please see listing photos for a closer look!
Tech Notes: Excellent player with medium/low action and minimal relief. All electronics function perfectly without issue. There is very light fret wear which in no way effects the playability. Setup with 10-46 gauge D'Addario XL strings. Quality, playability and feel are all top notch, to be expected for such a high end piece.

Awesome transaction! I bought a pretty special guitar (previously owned by a famous guitarist), and Ish nailed it. Ethical dealer, quick ship, and fast responses. I look forward to doing business with them again in the future!Devin, L'arrivee D-60
