PRESTI GE GU ITARS
From the start, we set out to build guitars
that are classic and timeless. From wood to
components and all aspects of fit and
finish, we maintain the utmost in quality.
Now going into our 14th year, our
award-winning line has rounded out to
feature a full range of solid body and
semi-hollow electrics, as well as hand
carved acoustic guitars.
The process starts with our obsession in
sourcing the top tonewoods available, for
use in each and every guitar we build. In
order to ensure the greatest quality
figuring and consistency throughout our
line, we take great pride in hand selecting
every piece of wood that goes into each
instrument. Our Heritage Series electrics
feature Solid carved Flame, Quilt, Burl and
Spalt Maple Tops; while our Eclipse series
acoustics feature Solid Spruce, Cedar,
Khaya, Rosewood and Koa.
Our wood vault houses anything and everything from Brazilian Rosewood, South
American Cocobolo, Hawaiian KOA, African
Zebrawood; to any type of Maple you can
imagine. Being situated in Vancouver,
Canada; we are fortunate to have access to
some of the highest quality Maple right in
our back yard and we take full advantage.
Our custom shop approach to building
guitars has led us to join forces with the
best known and most respected OEM and
component manufacturers on the planet. We
exclusively use Seymour Duncan USA Pick-
ups, TonePros Locking Bridges, TUSQ XL
nuts, Alpha Pots, Grover Tuners, and
Bigsby USA Vibratos, on every one of our
instruments.
At Prestige, we build guitars with the
player in mind. We strive to raise the bar
and continually outdo ourselves with the
guitars that bear our name. Our passion and
dedication to our craft can be found in
every single instrument leaving our shop.
Whether you are on stage, in the studio or
at home honing your craft, your Prestige
will deliver, each and every time you pick
it up.

CLASSI C
The Classic was created for those who love all
that a single cutaway solid body guitar has to
offer, but do not want to sling over 9 lbs of
rock n roll over their shoulder night after
night. With all the same appointments as the
Heritage Standard including a pair of Seymour
Duncan Humbuckers, ’59 in the neck and a JB in
the bridge or a pair of Seymour Duncan P90’s
(*Classic TBK), this guitar is only light on one
thing...weight. Every ounce of tone still remains
in this lighter cousin of “The Standard”. We
managed to shave about a third of the weight on
this model with a fully contoured solid Mahogany body, Flame Maple veneer top and a series of
strategic cutaways in all the right places. Light
on weight, heavy on everything else.

H ERITAGE STAN DARD
The Heritage Standard is the model that started
it all. The “Standard” was the solid body guitar
we always wanted. A solid mahogany body and neck,
topped off with a solid 3/4 inch carved slab of
Canadian hard maple with your choice of AA or
AAA Grade Quilted or Flamed. Cream 3 ply binding
surrounds the body and cream binding accents the
rosewood fingerboard and headstock. We loaded the
Standard with all chrome hardware and a pair of
Seymour Duncan Humbuckers; ’59 in the neck and a
JB in the bridge to give you a complete tonal
range. Lots of clean headroom with all the bite
and gain you could ever hope for.

"REX BROWN CUSTO M" SI GNATU RE M OD EL
The Rex Brown Custom Signature Model is a single cutaway solid body,
designed in direct collaboration with Rex and to his exacting “dream
guitar” specs. In creating the this model, we incorporated Rex’s deep
appreciation for vintage tone and feel, while bringing the best modern
components offered to ensure that this beast would be able to capture
his distinct voice both in the studio and on the road. The “REX” boasts a
killer combo of a carved Maple top and solid Mahogany body and neck.
This guitar is finished in matte black with cream 3 ply binding
surrounding the body, neck and headstock. In order to keep this guitar
sounding bright and punchy, we went with a rosewood fingerboard and we
put Rex’s very personal touch on the fingerboard with a Custom Skull
Inlay designed directly from a ring he wears day-to-day. Custom relic’d
nickel hardware includes TonePros locking bridge and saddle, Grover
Mini-Locking Rotomatic Tuners and nickel knurled knobs. We completed
this beast with the perfect voice for this truly badass signature guitar;
a pair of Seymour Duncan “Saturday Night Special” Humbucker pickups.

NYS STAN DARD
The NYS Standard is a classic vintage style
semi-hollow body guitar. Featuring an arched
maple top and back, and a solid center block,
the NYS allows you to coax an amazing amount
of sustain out of each note. The 24 3/4” scale
give this guitar a jazzy feel but don’t let that
fool you. There is more than enough midrange
punch in this design to confuse it with a solid
body when called upon; and you’ll be able to
cover anything in the rock spectrum without an
ounce of trouble. A pair of Seymour Duncan
alnico P90’s enhance the vintage tones of this
guitar. Smooth and glassy, while round and warm
in the mids; but with plenty of extra bite and
snarl when you want it.

M USI CIAN PRO TR
The Musician Pro TR is our premier thin line
semi-hollow guitar. A single cutaway maple body,
trans-red finish and a gold US Bigsby B7 Vibrato
are just the start. We use a unique chambered
center block design in this model which cuts
down the weight by leaving the balance of the
body chamber open. Coupled with an arched top
and back, this allows for more acoustic airspace
resulting in more open tones. The 25 1/2” scale
length gives this guitar a much tighter feel
while allowing the strings to ring through and
sustain much longer versus a traditional 24 3/4”
scale guitar. The Pro TR features all gold
hardware and a pair of Seymour Duncan Humbuckers to give you a complete tonal range along
with all the bite and gain you can hope for.

The Musician Pro Double Cutaway is a hard tail,
double cut version of our Musician Pro. A thin
line semi-hollow, the “Pro DC” features a
unique chambered center block design which cuts
down the weight by leaving the balance of the
body chamber open. Coupled with an arched top
and back, this allows for more acoustic airspace
resulting in more open tones. The 25 1/2” scale
length gives this guitar a much tighter feel
while allowing the strings to ring through and
sustain much longer versus a traditional 24 3/4”
scale guitar. The Pro DC features all chrome
hardware including a pair of Seymour Duncan
Humbuckers, to give you a complete tonal range
but with all the bite and gain you can hope for.

ECLI PSE KOA
The Eclipse KOA is the flagship in the Prestige
Eclipse line. Featuring a striking solid Koa
top, back and sides, the Eclipse KOA maintains a
completely unique tonal range, best described as
an even blend of Mahogany and Maple. Koa is an
exotic, tropical wood, with a much higher
density than many of the other commonly used
tonewoods. Plenty of midrange stacking coupled
with brightness and top end punch. Top end notes
seem to sparkle. Over time Koa will open up and
the midrange comes into its own, developing a
very well balanced resonance. The Koa/Koa would
be a great selection for both strummers and
fingerpickers alike.
Body: Auditorium Cutaway
Wood: Solid Koa top, back and sides,
Padauk binding and bevel
Neck: Satin Mahogany, C shaped
Scale: 25.35”
Fingerboard: Ebony, 16” Radius
Nut: 1 3/4” Bone Nut
Saddle & Bridge: Split bone saddle, Ebony Bridge

ECLI PSE SPRU CE ROSEWOOD
The Eclipse Spruce Rosewood maintains an ideal
tonal balance with the combination of solid Indian
Rosewood back and sides, and solid Spruce top.
Many players consider the combination of spruce
top with rosewood back and sides, to be the
standard that all other wood combinations should
be measured against. Spruce as a top wood, has a
very broad dynamic range and crisp delivery
throughout its entirety. Rosewood has a similar
basic tone to mahogany, but it’s as though you’ve
taken the highs and lows and expanded the range
in both directions. The bright end is sparkling
and crisp and the low end is deep and booming.
The combo of Spruce/Rosewood is tremendously
versatile and can handle nearly any style of
playing from flat-picking to finger picking and
bluegrass with ease.
Body: Auditorium Cutaway
Wood: Solid Spruce top, Solid Rosewood back and
sides, Padauk binding and bevel

ECLI PSE CEDAR ROSEWOOD
The Eclipse Cedar Rosewood produces the
warmest and richest tone of all four combos in
our line, with the combination of solid Indian
Rosewood back and sides, and solid Cedar top.
Cedar is a much softer wood, which is the
characteristic responsible for producing such
warmth. By coupling the Cedar top with Rosewood back and sides, we can tap into the best
qualities that Cedar has to offer and enhance
them with the outstanding crispness and extended tonal range of the Rosewood. Cedar has the
unique ability to make quieter tones louder,
but there is an upper volume limit to the wood.
The Cedar Rosewood is ideal for finger picking
with the ability to amplify subtle notes with
added warmth.
Body: Auditorium Cutaway
Wood: Solid Cedar top, Solid Rosewood back and
sides, Padauk binding and bevel
Neck: Satin Mahogany, C shaped
Scale: 25.35”
Fingerboard: Ebony, 16” Radius

ECLI PSE SPRU CE MAH OGANY
The Eclipse Mahogany features solid book
matched Khaya Mahogany back and sides, with
hand selected solid Spruce top. Coupling the
mahogany back and sides with a Spruce top,
allows us to maintain the clarity and crisp
articulation in the upper range, while amplifying the thick midrange that mahogany can
produce. That midrange stacking or blooming
effect produces a very balanced tone.
Spruce/Mahogany has a rich history as a
tonewood combo, and would be recognizable
almost instantly from the years of country and
blues recordings it has left its mark on.
Spruce/Mahogany is also well known to be one
of the absolute best combos for amplification or
recording, due to its balanced tone.

LEGACY KOA
The Legacy KOA is perhaps the most eye-catching model in our
Legacy line. Featuring a striking solid Koa top, back and sides,
the Legacy KOA maintains a completely unique tonal range, best
described as an even blend of Mahogany and Maple. Koa is an
exotic, tropical wood, with a much higher density than many of

sparkle. Over time Koa will open up and the midrange comes into
its own, developing a very well balanced resonance. The Koa
would be a great selection for both strummers and fingerpickers
alike. The Legacy Koa has a natural gloss finish top, sides and
back with a beautiful herringbone, maple, white and black stripe
soundhole rosette. The entire body is bound in maple with
herringbone purfling and back centre stripe. Neck and headstock
