    Hollowbody II Piezo rattling

    My Core Hollowbody II Piezo has a strange rattling sound on certain frequencies, an unpleasant vibration or resonance that sounds terrible acoustically and is probably impacting the amplified sound as well. After some investigation I isolated it to the battery mechanism. If I pull the battery...

    Variability amongst Pattern neck shapes?

    Another theory I have is the difference in action. The action on the neck that feels fatter to me is a little higher than the neck that feels thinner.

    Variability amongst Pattern neck shapes?

    Measurements are of width and depth, they don’t account for shape. Two necks could have the same width and depth but be very different.

    Variability amongst Pattern neck shapes?

    I have two PRS guitars with Pattern necks, a 2018 Hollowbody II Piezo and a 2020 Special Semi-Hollow. The necks on these guitars couldn’t feel more different to me despite both being Pattern necks and measuring the same on my calipers. The 2020 SSH feels very comfortable and I wouldn’t describe...

    Question re 2018 PRS Hollowbody II Piezo

    My new guitar arrived and it does indeed have the non-LT 58/15 pickups. They are fantastic and I’m in love.

    Question re 2018 PRS Hollowbody II Piezo

    I don’t think that’s accurate. I looked at about 20 sold listings for 2018 Hollowbody IIs on Reverb and almost all of them had the LTs. A few had the non-LTs. I also looked at the 2017 models and they all had non-LTs, so it seems the transition occurred some time in 2018.

    Question re 2018 PRS Hollowbody II Piezo

    I have a 2018 on its way to me. The tag with the case candy says 58/15 pickups not 58/15LT. Were those standard in 2018 or is it possible the tag is wrong? How can I tell when I receive it? Are the pickups marked?

    Hollowbody II Piezo Changes through the years?

    I'm interested in the answer here as well. I'm looking at a Hollowbody I that has been upgraded from the Artist pickups to 57/08's. Other than the fact that the Hollowbody II has a maple back and the Hollowbody I has a mahogany back, are there any other key differences? Is the piezo system on...

    Silver Sky Changes

    On another forum someone who owns an older and a newer version says that the newer one has lower output pickups than the hotter older one. I haven’t seen anyone else on any forum confirming that. Does anyone here have any knowledge of a change in pickups?

    Special 22 Semi Hollow (SSH) Modification Thread

    Beautiful guitar! I find with mine that the tone knob is more useful than on many of my other guitars. If I want a really vintage tone I’ll roll the tone all the way back to 4. It still sounds great even at that level. If I want maximum spank from the 2 and 4 positions I’ll roll it all the way...

    Limited vs new Core Special Semi-hollowbody models

    I have both a Special Semi-Hollow and a Paul's Guitar with TCI pickups. In my experience the 58/15MTs in tapped mode sound very close to the TCI pickups in full humbucker mode. The TCI's when split sound very thin and anemic to me, whereas the 58/15MT's sound fantastic in tapped mode...
