About the guitar: Michael Reid, long-time wood buyer for Paul Reed Smith Guitars, conceived of this guitar along with friend Jack Cowardin, luthier and owner of Restoration Music in Richmond, Virginia. Inspired by a series of guitars manufactured by PRS Guitars from reclaimed Brazilian hardwoods in 2017, this Brasilia guitar features a semi-hollow Peroba Rosa top cut from a house siding board sourced in southern Brazil. It also has a reclaimed, figured Peroba do Campo neck cut from a hand-sawn farm house floorboard, a fretboard and pick-guard cut from a reclaimed house beam of Guaribu Preto (a wood new to American luthiery), and a Spanish Cedar and Brauna Preto back.
