          Paul Reed Smith PRS Private Stock Super Eagle Electric Guitar

          Est: $40,000 - $60,000

          Paul Reed Smith PRS Private Stock Super Eagle John Mayer 1 Limited 100. Played but mint condition. you're looking at this. Then most likely you already know the legend of this guitar. Into Below: The Private Stock "Super Eagle" is the result of a very close collaboration between Paul Reed Smith and Grammy-winning musician John Mayer. The goal of the partnership was to create a highly-sophisticated and unique instrument that at once reveres the history of guitar-making and guitar tone but pushes the boundaries of materials, design, and craftsmanship. The result is a truly new PRS instrument that embodies the PRS Private Stock culture of meticulous workmanship as well as Mayer's keen eye for playability, tone, and detail. Some of the more distinctive and personalized specifications Mayer and Smith decided on for this special run of instruments include a longer (for PRS) scale length of 25.375", specially wound 58/15 JM treble and bass pickups with a specially-wound Narrowfield JM pickup in the middle position with three individual coil-tap mini-switches), a JCF Audio preamp with treble boost, as well as a hand-signed sticker in the f-hole of the guitar that was designed by Mayer's friend David Smith (who also designed the cover art for Mayer's 2012 Born and Raised album). The pickups deliver a bright, clear tone that has been heard in venues across the USA in Mayer's recent performances with Dead & Company. But according to Mayer, this guitar won't stop with Dead & Company. "Paul and I worked very closely to create this guitar, and the result is an incredibly refined and elegant instrument. It has a completely new sound and spirit. It's been a joy to play and I'm excited to share that experience with other guitar players" - John Mayer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lF9X4gGavHc

After attending San Diego State College and the Corcoran School of Art, Reed moved to New York and worked as a magazine illustrator and graphic designer (1942-1950). Reed returned to Washington in 1950, and opened his own graphic design firm. He rekindled his childhood friendship with Gene Davis and formed new friendships with fellow D.C. artists - notably Jacob Kainen. It was upon his return to D.C. that Reed began to stain colors on unprimed cotton duck, a technique pioneered by Morris Louis and Kenneth Noland, and inspired by Helen Frankenthaler. Reed had his first solo show in January 1963 at the Adams-Morgan Gallery in D.C., followed by a solo Show in New York. In 1965 he was invited, along with Kenneth Noland, Morris Louis, Gene Davis, Thomas Downing and Howard Mehring, to join the now famous exhibition at the Washington Gallery of Modern Art "The Washington Color Painters." Reviewers of the exhibition referred to the ""singing beauty" of the paintings, recalling the paper cutouts of Matisse"" THE ART OF PAUL REED: Color, Creativity, Curiosity David Gariff This particular work is from his oeuvre of the late 70s and 80s. "These complex works are created through a combination of painting and offset printing using opaque watercolors and inks. The resultant forms spread across the surface in a dialogue between scraped and free-flowing color." THE ART OF PAUL REED: Color, Creativity, Curiosity David Gariff

Unframed; lower right signed: Paul Reed 1986 Note: A native of Washington, D.C., Paul Reed was one of the founding artists of the Washington Color School. After attending San Diego State College and the Corcoran School of Art, Reed moved to New York and worked as a magazine illustrator and graphic designer (1942-1950). Reed returned to Washington in 1950, and opened his own graphic design firm. He rekindled his childhood friendship with Gene Davis and formed new friendships with fellow D.C. artists - notably Jacob Kainen. It was upon his return to D.C. that Reed began to stain colors on unprimed cotton duck, a technique pioneered by Morris Louis and Kenneth Noland, and inspired by Helen Frankenthaler. Reed had his first solo show in January 1963 at the Adams-Morgan Gallery in D.C., followed by a solo Show in New York. In 1965 he was invited, along with Kenneth Noland, Morris Louis, Gene Davis, Thomas Downing and Howard Mehring, to join the now famous exhibition at the Washington Gallery of Modern Art "The Washington Color Painters." Reviewers of the exhibition referred to the "'singing beauty' of the paintings, recalling the paper cutouts of Matisse" "THE ART OF PAUL REED: Color, Creativity, Curiosity" David Gariff This particular work is from his oeuvre of the late 70s and 80s. "These complex works are created through a combination of painting and offset printing using opaque watercolors and inks.
