Orianthi, who is known for touring with Carrie Underwood, Alice Cooper, and was recruited as Michael Jackson’s lead guitarist on his This Is It tour before his untimely passing, gained popularity as a solo artist with her first hit “According To You” back in 2009. In 2013 she received the “Inspire” Award at The WiMN’s first ever She Rocks Awards, and would later co-host with founder Laura B. Whitmore at our 2015 She Rocks Awards.
Orianthi’s gorgeous, new guitar was inspired by a favorite writing pen, her logo design, and her favorite shade of purple nail polish. The Private Stock team at PRS took her ideas and crafted a one of a kind design! The lotus flower from her favorite pen was inlaid on the fretboard, and her name logo was inlaid on the body.
