PAUL REED SMITH
The PRS SE Hollowbody II is a workhorse electric guitar that's built to perform as great as it looks. Featuring fully hollow construction, this eye-popping instrument features a figured maple top and back with mahogany sides — a tonewood cocktail that delivers extraordinary clarity and warm resonance. The SE Hollowbody II also features a very comfortable Wide Fat mahogany set neck and a premium ebony fingerboard emblazoned with iconic PRS bird inlays. Dual F-holes and two toneful 58/15 S humbucking pickups round out the feature set. For amazing tone, playability, and value, the PRS SE Hollowbody II is hard to beat.
The PRS SE Hollowbody II is built like no other guitar. Instead of the center block that runs top-to-bottom through semi-hollow guitar bodies, the SE 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 SE Hollowbody II.
PRS 58/15 S pickups balance vintage character with modern clarity to deliver the sweet — yet articulate — sound and rich harmonic overtones of vintage humbuckers. This is the warm and clear sonic elixir that propelled 58/15 pickups to the top of many guitarists' favorite PAF-style pickup lists. Featuring a powerful bridge pickup and neck pickup with the perfect amount of brightness, the 58/15 S set packs a real sonic punch, from chimey cleans to full shred. Guitarists at Guitar World love these pickups. You will, too.
Neck shapes are critical to your playing experience and a hallmark of PRS quality. The PRS SE Hollowbody II is fitted with their Wide Fat set neck. Perfected after years of prototyping, the wide-fat neck carve is based on designs Paul Reed Smith did in the '70s and '80s for Carlos Santana, Peter Frampton, and Howard Leese of Heart. The SE Hollowbody II's premium ebony fingerboard feels smooth-as-glass under your fingers, and its iconic bird inlays are the calling card of this top-notch guitar maker.
