PAUL REED SMITH
With brilliant acoustics and a vast array of tones, the PRS Hollowbody II has been a constant favorite in our dynamic lineup of semi-hollow instruments. The combination of the maple top and back with mahogany sides provides tonal clarity and extraordinary resonance.
The PRS/LR Baggs Piezo System comes standard, providing musicians with the versatility of wielding both acoustic and electric guitar tones in one instrument. There are two output jacks on the Hollowbody II, allowing guitarists to plug into their favorite electric guitar or acoustic guitar amp or DI into a soundboard. By utilizing the separate blend control, the tone of the Hollowbody II’s 57/08 pickups can also be combined with acoustic sounds through a single output.
With its eye-popping figured maple top, this PRS Hollowbody II electric guitar looks amazing, but it also sounds fantastic and plays like a dream. This axe gives you one of the most incredibly flexible tone-shaping systems. Select the Hollowbody II's 57/08 humbuckers for a purely electric sound or add in the woody quality of the the onboard LR Baggs/PRS piezo pickup system. The range of tone that these two pickup systems give you is absolutely phenomenal! And that's only part of what's so special about the PRS Hollowbody II.

PRS/LR Baggs piezo pickup system lets you blend natural acoustic tone with your humbuckers The PRS/LR Baggs piezo pickup system onboard the Hollowbody II electric guitar gives you access to the natural acoustic sound of its mahogany body. A control knob lets you blend the sound of this pickup in with the sound of the Hollowbody II's humbuckers, adding a woodier 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 PRS/LR Baggs piezo pickup system to an acoustic amplifier. You're going to love the range of tones that you can get out of this electric guitar!
PRS V12 finish feels like nitro and protects like acrylic The PRS Hollowbody II is finished in a stunning PRS V12 finish. If you're seeking vintage vibe with a sophisticated edge, your search ends here. Over a decade in the making, the PRS V12 finish blends the thin, resonance-enhancing characteristics of a nitro finish with the non-cracking reliability you expect from a modern acrylic finish. It has a classic feel all its own that makes your axe feel like a well-worn instrument. One that will look flawless for years to come.
Pattern profile neck feels great and provides you with ultra-smooth action The Hollowbody II is fitted with PRS's Pattern neck. A hallmark of PRS quality, neck shapes are, of course, critical to your playing experience. Perfected after years of prototyping, the Pattern neck is an updated Wide Fat PRS neck style that's based on designs Paul Reed Smith did in the '70s and '80s for Carlos Santana, Peter Frampton, and Howard Leese of Heart. The Hollowbody II's bound rosewood fingerboard is butter under your fingertips, and with exquisite mother-of-pearl and Paua Heart bird inlays, no one will mistake your axe for anything other than a PRS.
