Yesterday we reported that DW Drums had premiered an all-new line of Icon snare drums honoring Neil Peart at the 2014 NAMM Show which kicked off earlier this week. Alex Lifeson is also getting in on NAMM action where PRS Guitars has introduced a new Private Stock Alex Lifeson Thinline acoustic guitar. From the press release:

...The Alex Lifeson signature PRS acoustic is slightly thinner than the company's Angelus Cutaway and Tonare Grand and is constructed in such a way that it lends itself to louder stage volumes and the rigors of the road.

"During the 2013 Rush Clockwork Angels Tour, I had the opportunity to spend some time with a PRS Angelus Cutaway. It quickly became my pre-show warm up guitar, and I spent many hours in many hotel rooms lost in the gorgeous sound and tone of that beautiful instrument. I'm very happy to announce that I have collaborated with PRS to develop an Alex Lifeson Signature model based on this superlative platform," said Lifeson. "If you're like me, you won't be able to put it down." ...

The PRS Private Stock Alex Lifeson Thinline acoustic will be available starting in the spring of 2014, and more details can be found on the PRS website here.
