One-of-a-kind Electric Guitar Features Harpy Eagle

Bid Today on a Guitar Made by Three World-class Masters!

We're pretty sure there's no other guitar in the world with a giant Harpy Eagle on it. And we know there's nothing like the Harpy Guitar created especially for American Bird Conservancy (ABC) by our friends at Paul Reed Smith Guitars (PRS Guitars). This working piece of art features the guitar-making mastery of Paul Reed Smith (PRS Guitars), the expert tropical wood-sourcing ability of Michael Reid (PRS Guitars and ABC supporter), and the stunning wood carving of world-renowned bird carver Floyd Scholz.

Made of Brazilian Peroba-do-campo wood recovered from 19th-century Brazilian ranch houses, the guitar sports a striking Harpy Eagle carving on the body. Considered by many to be the world's most powerful birds of prey, Harpy Eagles are found in the same region as the wood used to make this guitar. Named after the Harpies in Ancient Greek mythology, these birds have the largest foot-size-to-body ratio of any living animal, their powerful talons used to grab monkeys, sloths, and other rainforest denizens. These birds require large areas of forest to survive and have no natural predators once they reach adulthood. Habitat destruction is the primary reason this amazing species is currently in danger.

This masterpiece is being auctioned from October 9 to 19 (direct link to auction: All the proceeds from the auction will be donated to ABC's Brazil Program, and will allow ABC to continue its work with Brazilian partners to save the rarest birds in the region. The Harpy Guitar is also a rarity: This is a solo model and will not be recreated. Check out this video to learn more about the guitar (Paul Reed Smith himself plays it at the end of the clip) and the auction benefiting ABC's Brazil Program.

Paul Reed Smith guitars are legendary for their distinctive tone, playability, and the bird silhouettes inlaid in their fretboards. Among the more famous PRS guitar players are Peter Frampton, Carlos Santana, and John Mayer. Bid today and share the opportunity!
