Lovies Guitars is stoked to offer up this Awesome Paul Reed Smith Hollowbody II Piezo Electric Guitar in a Beautiful Dark Cherry Burst Finish! For the Hollowbody II Piezo, it all starts with premium tonewoods: carved figured maple for the top and back, mahogany for the sides. This particular combination yields a clear, yet resonant, tone that suits any musical style. The mahogany neck is topped with a smooth, inviting rosewood fingerboard adorned with exclusive PRS bird inlays. Speaking of tone, playing the PRS Hollowbody II Piezo’s 58/15 pickups is an inspiring experience. That’s because Paul Reed Smith himself designed the 58/15 pickups to give you the sweetened tone you’d expect from real vintage humbuckers. PRS went right to the source of legendary pickup production when they bought the same coil wire manufacturing machine that ’50s-era guitar makers used to create some of the most iconic pickups in history. The 58/15 pickups give this PRS Hollowbody II Piezo the classic humbucker tones you’ve been looking for. And a push-pull tone control splits the pickup coils for sparkly single-coil tones. PRS retooled these pickups to bring the sweet harmonics and chunky warmth of this classic design to your Hollowbody II Piezo. Each set of pickups has been ear-tuned to perfection by Paul and his team, a process known as Tuned Capacitance and Inductance (TCI). The end result is a very musical pickup that’s true to its lineage, but updated for the modern player. The PRS/LR Baggs piezo pickup system on the Hollowbody II Piezo gives you access to the natural acoustic sound of its hollow construction. A control knob lets you blend in the sound of this pickup with the sound of the Hollowbody II’s humbuckers, adding a woody quality and extra sustain to your tone. There’s also a separate output next to the Hollowbody II’s main output that lets you send just the sound of the piezo pickup to an acoustic amplifier. The PRS Hollowbody II is built like no other guitar. Instead of the center block that runs top to bottom through semi-hollow guitar bodies, the Hollowbody II features only a small block that anchors the bridge. This proprietary PRS construction gives you the warm resonance of a full hollowbody with the clarity, sustain, and rock-solid stability of a semi — all in a comfortable thin-profile instrument. So if you’re a solidbody player, you’ll feel right at home on a Hollowbody II. Taking its cues from the Private Stock finish that entails high-gloss nitro over a cellulose CAB basecoat, this method gives the guitar a finish that’s thin, durable, and clear. The result is an instrument that feels like a vintage guitar in your hands, with an incredible amount of resonance. Why does the PRS Hollowbody II Piezo feel “just right” when you pick it up? It’s the satisfying shape of the neck — an updated wide-fat neck carve PRS calls their Pattern profile. It’s based on Paul Reed Smith’s original, pre-factory neck design — the same one used on instruments he handbuilt back in the ’70s and ’80s for Carlos Santana, Peter Frampton and Howard Leese of Heart. This axe is in Excellent Shape with just a couple of super tiny finish marks on the top and some light buckle wear on the back, easy 9.8/10!
