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 with IRW necks. I was thrilled when I was able to snag one second hand for a good deal. Black Cherry wasn't my ideal colour but and would have preferred a vintage yellow or something different (I already have 2 black cherry PRSi), but it had the rosewood neck. I wasn't going to be picky. It sounds incredible, although I must say the sound of the rosewood neck isn't as pronounced as the irw neck on my CU22. However, it just feels great. It also isn't neck heavy, maybe it's a little more heavier than a mahogany neck, but I would in no way call it neck heavy. It balances nicely on my lap and when standing. So I present to you my 2013 PRS HBII Artist package with Indian rosewood neck and Brazilian fretboard. So here's the eye candy. Flamey arse shot first! Look at that neck!!
