    Best SE ever?

    NGD, SE DGT Goldtop with moons, just an outstanding guitar in all aspects. IMO, the best SE ever. Once I heard DGh say that he forgot for a minute that he was playing the SE and not his core, because it is "that close" to the core, I had to try one, and I am thrilled that I did, it sounds amazing.

    Could someone help me identify this guitar?

    I pride myself on being able to find out what mystery guitars are, but what is this thing? I know it's a prs with 1990's lollar style soapbars, but there is no production model hollowbody that has p90's let alone three of them. Found two out of the private stock made around 2005-2007, but...

    Can the Hollowbody II play metal or high gain?

    The short answer is yes Over making last week's video, I was pleasantly surprised by the tones I was getting running my core HB2 through a Friedman esque as well as a higher gain patch. There is this overall myth about needing high output pickups for tightness. Also hollowbodies of the past have...

    Hollowbody Standard - Piezo Volume Control Issue

    Hi, I'm working on a borrowed guitar, hence my ignorance! I just have a question about how it's meant to work. Everything seems to be fine when using two outputs and two amps - one volume for magnetic pickups and one for the piezo. When plugged into just the mag/piezo output, and the mini...

    Lefty McCarty 594 Hollowbody?

    Hello guys, I've been drooling over these lovely hollow 594s for a while and now that I have a nice budget to pull the trigger on a new, beautiful guitar I am wondering if anyone has seen any of those from PRS recently? It's not clear if such a lefty 594 HB could be ordered via an official...

    PRS SE Hollow body Piezo

    Finally looking to bring one of these into my arsenal. I am curious, for those that already have one: 1. Mixing the clean piezo and the distorted humbuckers, curious how the blending of that sound works as it would be the first time I have ever done that. My assumption is blend the clean...

    Hollowbody II With Piezo or Without

    Hello everybody, I was wondering if the piezo being installed in a core Hollowbody II affects the tonal quality of the magnetic pickups if the piezo is disengaged. What I’m asking is if there were two identical core Hollowbody II’s with the only difference being one had the piezo installed and...

    Incoming NGD Hollow be thy name

    So I was browsing the Bay which I haven't done in forever and came across this SE Hollow body that the owner was gracious enough to add these mods to bring it up to the newer Hollowbody II Piezo features with some bonuses for under the cost of a new Standard. Can't wait to play this, it's...

    Hollowbody construction

    Hi, I'm new to the forum. Trying to get information on the prs hollowbody ii. So its a big piece of mahogany that's been carved to leave solid reams and then glue a back and top made of carved maple. All good, now, seems like there's some more mahogany holding bridge and pickups. How does that work?

    2004 Hollowbody 2 with "57/08 WW"

    Hi, I came across this Hollowbody 2 Artist Package from 2004 in a very good condition which has been upgraded with some nice stuff for the looks but also with so called 57/08 "Wildwood Prototype" Humbuckers instead of the original Archtops. The dealer says that these are early 57/08s. Has...

    Identification of an electric PRS hollow body guitar

    Hello everybody. I was the Lucky son of a PRS guitar owner who left us a few years ago. Since he got me hooked on the six strings, part with those instruments isn't an easy task. But he left me a lot of them and I Don't like them to sit in his office unused. One of my father's friend told me...

    Incoming NGD!! PRS 594 Hollowbody ii

    So I may of just bought a New Guitar... :D:D I love my 2016 594 and my 2018 Hollowbody ii with Piezo so I thought what if I had a guitar that was a mix of both of these. I also don't have a guitar with the new 2020 specs - Nitro and pickups with the new TCI process applied but also wasn't keen...

    PRS Hollowbody - NGD

    Hi all, I am a bit of a long time lurker who posted a while back that I was keeping an eye on buying a PRS sometime this year. I have always wanted one but as a teenager back in the early 2000's and could never afford one back then. I always played Fenders as well and still love those guitars...

    Cleaning a Hollowbody?

    I have a Hollowbody ii and I was just wondering how other owners dusted inside their Hollowbody. I have a cat, so some hair is bound to get in there at some point. What’s the best way to get it out? Is there stuff that I should worry about in the body (electronics).

    My dream guitar - HBII with rosewood neck

    Hey, hey! Years ago when I got my first 2003 Hollowbody and after experiencing the feel of a naked rosewood neck I always wished for a HB with one. But PRS said they would never make them as they were too neck heavy, bla bla bla. But as always, things change and PRS did make a few non PS HB's...

    Hello everyone, I'm an old original PRS Forum/BaM member who's belonged to this forum for years but never posted. I'm a big fan of the PRS Hollowbodies and own quite a few and with the release of the new SE models I was wondering if anyone had been able to compare and do a side by side...

    Hollowbody History

    Hey guys! I'm hoping you guys can educate me on some of the differences between the different versions of the Hollowbody model throughout the years. I'm starting to look for one and I'm seeing HBIs, HBIIs, McCartys, Archtops, and all kinds of stuff. What's the difference?
