MGR/Dave's review"Paul Reed Smith Hollowbody II"

PRS Hollowbody II - Smoked Orange
I bought this on a Ebay auction for $2250.

When I tell you this thing sounds INCREDIBLE, believe me. It does everything wonderfully. I have 21 guitars and nothing comes close this, not my Gibson, Fender or any of the others.

The only thing that I don't like about it is, that it is so beautiful and immaculate that I am scared to death of putting a scratch on it. So it spends 98% of its life in its fantastic leather hardshell case.

You should know what these guitars are but for those of you how do not, here goes. It is a hollowbody made of flamed maple on the top and back. Mahogany side rim and set neck. Rosewood fretboard with abalone bird inlays and McCarty archtop electronics. I know that a large part of thier production is done on computer controlled CNC machines for high tolerances but they are assembled by hand and the work is impeccable. The PRS line of guitars are the most sought after now because of thier beauty and craftmanship.

I liked this so much I bought a PRS custom 22 that I would feel more comfortable playing on a regular basis. Go and at least try one out if you can. They stopped making the Hollowbody I and I hope they stop making these so mine will only increase in value(awfully selfish).

Great FEATURES, not necessarily great guitar.


UTILIZATION

This guitar seems like it would be great. It's easy to play. It's a bit neck-heavy, which is annoying, but not enough to be a deal breaker. The deal breaking occurs with the overall flatness/dullness of the vibe. I know, it's incredibly intangible, and as a writer and an informed guitar owner and player I should be able to pinpoint exactly what it is about the guitar I don't like, but I can't. It just does not do it for me. This is one of the most blah instruments I've ever picked up. It's not bad, but it's not good either.

SOUNDS

It sounded ok, I guess. I've played much better sounding PRS guitars, and much better sounding hollowbodies. This guitar was really uninspiring to me. The piezo in my Parker and my buddy's Schecter sounded better than this one.

OVERALL OPINION

Have you ever heard the phrase "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts"? That doesn't apply here. In fact, just the opposite. The features are fantastic, and the guitar should by all accounts be incredible. But I just thought it was pretty dull overall. I don't know if I played a bad example of one - everything checked out just fine - but I was not impressed. I love hollowbody guitars, and I love a lot of PRS models, and I love piezo pickups, but this one just did not do it for me. It was set up well and everything... Who knows. I just think it's not a great buy for the money.

PRS Hollowbody II - Smoked Orange
McCarty Hollowbody II in 2003.

A guitar created by Paul Red Smith with Mc Carty association that crea Gibson 335, Flying V, Explorer and other Firebird.

The guitar is manufactured by hand in the workshop PRS, Maryland USA.

Here no big block as the 335, it's a real Hollowbody with a block below the PRS easel, what to be when doing the quality.

2 humbuckers PRS archtop with a good quality selector 3 positions.

one volume, one tone, which are very efficient and reliable.

The fingerboard is pallissabre very pleasant, REFINED and quality.

The neck is mahogany consist broad, C-shaped with a correct radius, with a superb finish, which allows displacements ease and comfortable.

USE

Neck: We feel that there is actually something, finish provides a pleasant feeling, solo and rhythm, everything goes without breaking, without hurting his hand.

Treble Access: No problem

Ergonomics: the shape is very beautiful is the guitar is very conformable for Hollowbody, the weight is light, must foresee a strap because the finish dragging the guitar.

Its acoustics: Without being plug the sound is superb

SONORITS

The sound may be suitable for jazz, rock, blues, and you can even push other style.

On a Blackface is a real pleasure to play jazz.

The neck pickup is fat, round, clean, sweet if we increase the treble we pass a crystal clear sound but still humbucker.

The bridge pickup is planned for reellemt big metal rhythm, but being winded one can get his signature. But it is an archtop so do not push it anyway.

The sound is just a fall, and the feedback problem can occur with extreme settings, but is not so present.

NOTICE GLOBAL

This is great stuff.
