Offered here is one of my favorite guitar models and one that is among the most flexible and beautiful guitar designs available, a PRS Hollowbody, in this case with a Spruce top.
This beautiful, 22 fret, 25" scale guitar has straight-grained Sitka Spruce and Mahogany is used for the neck and sides. The neck carve is PRS' chunky Pattern shape, formerly known as their Wide/Fat neck. The pickups are PRS' McCarty Archtop humbuckers and the guitar has piezo elements built into the adjustable stoptail bridge. Controls include a three-way switch for the humbuckers, volume, tone, blend and a three way switch for the piezo. It is incredibly light and comfortable to play, weighing just 5.2 pounds!
With it's combination of magnetic pickups and piezo electronics, there isn't much this guitar can't do and I've seen this guitar model used for everything from jazz to heavy metal to solo singer/songwriter duty. It is one of the easiest and most comfortable to play electrics on the market. I also think that is among the most beautifully-built and it's construction is much like that of a fine violin. The tone is superb, with a voice that is somewhere between that of a PRS solid body and a Gibson ES-335. The Spruce top on this version gives it an even more authentic acoustic tone. Check out the provided sound sample of this guitar. Very few other instruments give you the tonal flexibility that this guitar gives you.
This instrument was built in 2007 and is in "excellent minus" condition. Just one little ding on the side of the headstock is about all I can find that keeps this guitar from being in near mint condition. The rest of the guitar, including the frets are in near new condition. It comes in it's original hardshell case, also in fine condition, along with all the the truss rod adjustment tool.
The Hollowbody Spruce isn't manufactured any longer but Maple-bodied versions of this fabulous instrument go for well over $5K new these days. This lovely example is a great way to enjoy the many benefits of this amazing PRS design at a much lower price point. Just a superb semi-hollow instrument from PRS.
