Here it is folks, what can we say - We feel honoured to be one of a select handful of PRS Dealers Worldwide to have the pleasure of being able to say we have one of ‘Paul Reed Smiths 35th Anniversary Dragon’. We only have one available and once its gone, its gone. There are no more of these highly sought after and collectable Ltd Edition Dragons coming to Musicstreet or the UK!.
This amazing example really shows Pauls attention to detail and doing what Paul Reed Smith does best, creating the ultimate in guitar building, aesthetics and sounds.
I have been selling Pauls Reed Smiths Guitars for my whole time in this industry, going back to when I managed Machinehead (Hitchin) working along side Jeff Pumfrett RIP, This Dragon has to be one of the most exquisite and spectacular guitars I have ever seen. As you would expect, the materials are of the highest quality, the intricate inlay work is truly awe inspiring and time involved must have taken weeks. She plays, looks and sounds truly amazing!

Paul Reed Smith Dragon model guitars are among the most coveted PRS models ever developed. PRS is proud to celebrate this historic model in honor of the company’s 35th anniversary in 2020.
The visual star of the guitar is the elaborate, fantastical dragon inlay designed by Jeff Easley, a fantasy artist famous for some of Dungeons & Dragons rulebook covers. PRS Guitars engaged Aulson Inlay, to deconstruct Easley’s artwork and recreate it for the fretboard of the guitar. The design concludes with the dragon’s breath of fire extending onto the truss rod cover. The finished inlay is fashioned from a wide array of materials including: Green Ripple Abalone, Green Abalone Select, Black Mother of Pearl, Stabilized Sand-Shaded Holly, Red with Gold Vein Recon Stone, Raffir Striped Black, Black and Red Raffir Aluminum Wave, Abaloid Acrylic, Nocturne Corian, as well as Blue Pacific, Citrine, and Flame Synthetic Opal.
The 35th Anniversary Dragon is based off of the PRS McCarty model, featuring a thicker back, PRS Stoptail bridge, and a classic volume, push/ pull tone control, and 3-way toggle electronics layout, but with TCI model pickups from the Paul’s Guitar and tweaked Phase III Locking tuners for a unique balance of vintage and modern specifications. The extraordinary Private Stock grade tone woods were hand selected for this limited series and include a curly maple top, African ribbon mahogany back, and a chaltecoco Pattern neck with a 25” scale length, 22 fret ziricote fingerboard.
35th Anniversary Dragons will come finished in Frostbite Dragon’s Breath. A Private Stock’s Dragon’s Breath style finish was the perfect choice for this run, with the stain sporting a lighter color (or “glow”) toward the belly of the guitar that mimics the shape of a flame shooting out of a dragon’s mouth. The smoked black hardware brings a fierce elegance to the instrument.
“Looking at the final 35th Anniversary Dragon, I am incredibly proud. This guitar is PRS through and through from the fingerboard design to the pickups. I think it’s one of our most elegant Dragons yet.” – Paul Miles
The Private Stock 35th Anniversary Dragon is limited to 135 pieces worldwide.
