PRS teams with Sweetwater for the Owls In Flight Private Stock electrics

The guitars feature 'perched owl' headstock veneers and a custom fingerboard inlay.

PRS Guitars – one of our founding partners for Guitar.com Live – has launched the Owls In Flight series, a range of Private Stock electric guitar models exclusive to music retailer Sweetwater.

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.

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.”
