The series was inspired by the nocturnal birds of prey, which reside in the natural environments surrounding Sweetwater’s campus in Indiana. As the series’ name implies, owls make up a big part of the guitars’ design elements. There’s a custom owl inlay that spans the entire fingerboard as well as a ‘perched-owl’ headstock veneer which varies from instrument to instrument.
As for the instrument specs themselves – you can either get a pre-made model, or customise your own through Sweetwater.
Sweetwater has shown off three variants from the Owls In Flight series, which include a PRS McCarty Singlecut 594 in Fuschia Smoked Burst, a PRS Custom 24 in Frostbite Glow, and a PRS McCarty 594 in Zombie Heart. See them below.
The series was conceived as a collaboration between PRS Private Stock director Paul Miles and Sweetwater Category Manager for Acoustic Instruments Thom Grant. According to Miles: “Working with Thom on the Owls in Flight [guitars] has been a hoot”
“I love it when a dealer knows what they want and has a story to back it up – it creates a great creative partnership and some super-cool guitars.”
