I just took delivery of a brand new HBII and am COMPLETELY blown away!!! SICK top, the usual phenomenal PRS workmanship, and get this... a total weight of 4 LBS 13 OUNCES!!! It feels like a helium balloon!! Lol!! But what has me stoked the most is the freaking TONE! I played ONE chord and said THEY DID IT!! So Iooked inside the F hole to confirm... Yep!!!! Gone are those big thick braces on the top and the extra large soundpost!!! Back to the the original specs!!! And you can hear it and feel it with a single chord!!! PLEASE give Paul a giant hug for me! I do not know of anyone other than myself bitching about the heavier bracing and top, so I will assume he did it just for me! Absolutely phenomenal guitar!!! I have been saying it forever....PRS makes the world's finest electric guitars, regardless of price. This thing is jawdropping!!!
