PRS Hollowbody guitars are among the most under-rated instruments on the planet.  I’ve often said:  “If people knew how great these guitars are, they would cost $10,000 right off the rack”.  Exceptional tone and playability.  Six finger chords ring out with perfect balance and note definition from low to high.  The instruments construction combined with the specially voiced McCarty Archtop pick-ups deliver soulful sustain and zero feedback.  A feather light instrument to wear on stage all night long.  All original with a wide-fat neck carve.  Beautifully flamed maple 10 top & back.

Please keep in mind as you look at the pictures below that there is nothing “red” about the finish of this guitar at all.  This is a beautiful and classy Tobacco Burst finish as noted in the picture of the pick-up cavity.  Be sure to see the notes at the bottom of the page for more details about this guitar.

If you’ve bypassed these guitars in the past assuming that they are a plinky jazz box then you’re in for a real treat.  These PRS Hollowbody guitars are screaming, shredding rock and roll tone machines.  This one weighs in at approximately 5-1/4 pounds.  The bird inlays are very colorful and the gold hardware sets of this classy Tobacco Burst 10 top beautifully.

This fine instrument has been played (as it should be).  The gold hardware shows some fade on the bridge and the outer edges of the pick-ups.  There is very little fret ware as photographed.  There are only minor cosmetic marks in the clear coat, the most notable is a clearly photographed on the side of the guitar.  The face of the headstock has some nicks along the edge and there is one streak in the clear coat on the back.  See the close up, then see if you can find it in either of the pictures which show the back.  In consideration of the minor cosmetics, I’ll give it a 9.3 rating.

The case is factory original.  It is covered 360 degrees in stickers, which gives it a cool “player” vibe.  The two bottom latches are broken.  I’m working on having those repaired but didn’t want to hold up the listing just for that.  I’ll edit this post accordingly when the case latches have been addressed.

Please be sure to take a moment and click here to look at my ABOUT page or access it from the top menu bar.  You can click HERE to access my e-Bay feedback profile ( e-Bay seller dm-2 ) directly as well.  I encourage even the smallest of questions so always feel free to e-mail me any time.  Over 140 of my e-Bay feedback ratings are from PRS guitar sales.  This is a fine instrument which will always be worth the current asking price.  As a model from the second year of production, it may even ascend in value as the years go by.

This guitar is also listed on e-Bay with a starting price of $250 more than I’m asking here at my home page, just to put a dent in the outrageous e-Bay seller fees they would charge me to sell it to you there.  It is also on a rotating consignment schedule in two local music stores but I’m asking more there too, as they take a pretty healthy cut if they sell it.  Why pay more than you have to?  Check my feedback and buy it here.  It may be gone soon.  Send me an e-mail and we’ll talk.

$2050.00 Includes Ground shipping to the lower 48

You want it….  You can afford it….  Pull the trigger.
