This special release is part of their 30th anniversary celebration, unveiled by the company at their 30th Anniversary factory event. Only 120 30th Anniversary "Vine" guitars were produced, and all of them were already sold to PRS dealers on the said event.

The new Vine inlay pattern is inspired in part by the PRS Tree of Life inlay design, a limited edition variation on the original design. To complete its elegant design, PRS utilized mother of pearl, paua and paua heart, and it is only available on two PRS models, the recently re-released McCarty and the Custom 22.

PRS Guitars President Jack Higginbotham said, "The Limited Edition "Vine" models are where visionary art, superior tonewoods and master craftsmanship meet. The stunning vine inlay pattern combined with the playability of both the Custom 22 and the McCarty, make them drop dead gorgeous, performance ready tools that no doubt will be popular with guitarists and guitar aficionados alike."

The "Vine" Custom 22 follows traditional PRS double cutaway design, featuring a figured maple top paired with mahogany back. As the name implies, it has a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard on top of a 25" scale length maple neck. The special feature of this guitar is the Paua/Paua Heart Vine inlay which blends well together with the mother of pearl 30 anniversary bird inlay.

A pair of 57/08 gives the Vine Custom 22 its voice, which is described as having a distinctly warm midrange. The pickups are wired to a straightforward set of controls including a 5-way blade pickup selector, a volume knob and a tone knob. Other features include Phase III locking tuners and PRS patented tremolo bridge.

The "Vine" McCarty is the same as the newly released McCarty having an an artist grade figured maple top paired with a thicker mahogany back for increased resonance. It has a 25" scale length maple neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard. Its main distinguishing trait is the 30th Anniversary Vine inlay.

Giving this guitar its vintage style midrange focused voice are two 58/15 pickups wired to a 3-way toggle pickup selector and one volume knob and one push/pull tone knob. Other hardware include Phase II locking tuners and PRS stoptail bridge with brass inserts.

Available finishes for the new limited edition Vine models are as follows: Faded Whale Blue, Black Gold Burst, Fire Red Burst, Charcoal, Blood Orange, Trampas Green, Makena Blue, and Violet Smokeburst.
