Dazzling Hollowbody Tone Beast
The PRS Hollowbody II Piezo 10-Top electric guitar looks, sounds, and plays like a dream. This instrument features one of the most flexible tone-shaping systems you'll find in the Sweetwater Guitar Gallery. Select the Hollowbody II's 58/15 humbuckers for a purely electric sound, or blend in the woody quality of the onboard LR Baggs/PRS piezo pickup system for great acoustic tones. Combining these two diverse pickup systems gives you an absolutely phenomenal sonic range. And that's only part of what's so special about the PRS Hollowbody II Piezo 10-Top.
An ultra-premium instrument from PRS
The 10-Top guitars are PRS's most distinctive production instruments. For the Hollowbody II Piezo 10-Top, it all starts with premium tonewoods: carved figured maple for the top and back, mahogany for the sides. This particular combination yields a clear, yet resonant, tone that suits any musical style. The mahogany neck is topped with a smooth, inviting ebony fingerboard adorned with exclusive PRS bird inlays.
PRS/LR Baggs piezo pickup system
The PRS/LR Baggs piezo pickup system on the Hollowbody II Piezo 10-Top gives you access to the natural acoustic sound of its hollow construction. A control knob lets you blend in the sound of this pickup with the sound of the Hollowbody II's humbuckers, adding a woody quality and extra sustain to your tone. There's also a separate output next to the Hollowbody II's main output that lets you send just the sound of the piezo pickup to an acoustic amplifier.
Resonant, comfortable, thin-profile hollowbody
The PRS Hollowbody II is built like no other guitar. Instead of the center block that runs top to bottom through semi-hollow guitar bodies, the Hollowbody II features only a small block that anchors the bridge. This proprietary PRS construction gives you the warm resonance of a full hollowbody with the clarity, sustain, and rock-solid stability of a semi — all in a comfortable thin-profile instrument. So if you're a solidbody player, you'll feel right at home on a Hollowbody II.
Pattern neck shape, for that "just-right" feel
Why does the PRS Hollowbody II Piezo 10-Top feel "just right" when you pick it up? It's the satisfying shape of the neck — an updated wide-fat neck carve PRS calls their Pattern profile. It's based on Paul Reed Smith's original, pre-factory neck design — the same one used on instruments he handbuilt back in the 1970s and '80s for Carlos Santana, Peter Frampton, and Howard Leese of Heart. Take it from us: once you wrap your hand around this juicy neck, you won't want to let go.
Stunning, durable, tone-friendly PRS V12 finish
The Hollowbody II Piezo 10-Top is finished in a stunning PRS V12 finish. If you're seeking vintage vibe with a sophisticated edge, your search ends here. Over a decade in the making, the V12 finish blends the thin, resonance-enhancing characteristics of an old-school nitrocellulose lacquer finish with the reliability you expect from a modern acrylic finish. It has a classic feel all its own, making your axe feel like a cherished old instrument — one that will stay flawless-looking for years to come.
