PRS SE Hollowbody II Electric Guitar Tri-Color Sunburst
The SE Hollowbody II combines the power and stability of a solid-body electric guitar with the captivating resonance of a hollowbody instrument. The 58/15 “S” pickups deliver clarity and balance that sound big and musical in the hollow body platform. Designed to look as good as it sounds, the SE Hollowbody II also features a figured maple top and back and mahogany sides as well as a mahogany neck (set-neck construction) with PRS trademark bird inlays. Both Hollowbody and solid-body players will feel at home with the PRS SE Hollowbody II.
The new line of PRS electric guitars are a real joy to play, and the beautifully chambered PRS SE Hollowbody II makes for an excellent choice. With a wide-ranging, airy voice, this model can suit many different musical genres and playing styles. Featuring some new and improved appointments, the PRS SE Hollowbody II is both adaptable and comfortable, perfect for the playing pro.
The PRS SE Hollowbody II has a chambered body for an even more resonant sound. The body has a bevelled maple top with a sublime flame maple veneer with a dual F-hole cutout. Also, the double-cutaway body shape allows full access to all of the frets that the neck has to offer. The back is also Beveled Maple with Flame Maple Veneer top, adding a glorious symmetry to this astounding looking guitar.
The PRS SE Hollowbody II has a scale length of 25 inches and is firmly fitted with a Mahogany neck. The neck has a Wide Fat profile which feels incredibly comfortable in the hand, and is suited well-rounded guitarists. A smooth Ebony fingerboard tops the neck and presents you with 22 frets with the recognisable bird inlays as a guide.
Dual humbuckers have been carefully voiced by Paul Reed Smith and selected to amplify this excellent Hollowbody model. The pickups are situated in the neck and bridge positions respectively and imitate the pickups found in core PRS models for an exceptional tone. The updated 58/15 “S” pickups create sweet highs that chime wonderfully. The low and midrange notes are well-defined, offering you a universe of balanced tones to explore. The 58/15 “S” humbuckers are a coveted pair of pickups, and you can only get these when you purchase a core PRS model from the range.
The controls enable you to tweak your Volume and Tone with ease. There is also a 3-way toggle switch to alter between pickup combinations.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
A reliable PRS adjustable stoptail bridge fitted to the lower bout of the body maintains a great connection between the body and the strings, allowing the resonant airy tones to come through the dual F-cutout. The headstock features PRS-designed tuners which uphold tuning accuracy with precision. PRS have also added a new logo to the headstock which features Paul Reed Smith’s signature. All-nickel hardware adds a neat finish to the beautiful flame maple veneer top and Hollowbody design.
The PRS PRS SE Hollowbody II has been designed with “resonance and grace” as its foundations. As with any PRS model, the technicians ensure that it is set up perfectly and ready to play from the moment you take it out of the box.
