Selling a pair of Paul Reed Smith Hollowbodies. See separate listing below for each.
I'll entertain an offer for both guitars, purchased at one time. Otherwise, individual prices are shown below.

As I'm selling due to health reasons, I'm not all that interested in trades. However, I might accept a Fender American Standard Tele as part trade for one or both PRS'.

Thanks for looking.

2004 Paul Reed Smith McCarty Hollowbody II with PTC Upgrades



A very nice and unique PRS McCarty Hollowbody II model. This was special ordered from the factory with jumbo 6100 stainless steel frets. Maple top and back. Piezo bridge. In 2011, the original owner had the PRS tech shop ("PTC") replace the original Archtop pickups with their infamous 57/08s, and also install a split coil switch. Now it provides four absolutely killer sounds without having to use any outboard gear. First, you get the 57/08 tone, which many feel exactly captures Duane Allman's tone from his vintage Les Paul. Secondly, you can split the coils of the humbucking 57/08s, providing less gain, which allows subtle nuances from the neck and hollow body to shine through your signal. Third, you can harness the sonic clarity of the piezo bridge, providing a very acoustic-guitar like tone with the famed playability of a Paul Reed Smith. Lastly, you can combine the 57/08 pickup (split or unsplit) with the sound of piezo bridge.

Looks and sounds killer. Excellent condition. Would be near mint, except for one small scratch near the lower f-hole. Original Artist case and hang tag included, as well as paperwork for the PTC pickup and wiring work. Over $700 of work was performed to make this one of the most sonically exciting Paul Reed Smith models I've been provileged to play.

$3250 shipped in the lower 48. Sorry, but I don't ship out of the USA.

2003 Paul Reed Smith McCarty Hollowbody 1



Dead mint beauty weighs under 6 lbs! Fantastic action, great sound and so comfortable that you could easily wear it on a strap all night long without ever changing guitars. Carved maple top with carved mahogany back and thin sides (1 3/4" depth at rim, 3" depth at bridge). 22-fret wide-fat mahogany neck, rosewood fretboard, PRS stop tail bridge, and 3-way toggle pickup selector. PRS Phase 2 locking tuners, too.

Flamed maple edging shows nice figuring. This beauty is currently outfitted with Bareknuckle Riffraff pickups. These are based on the holy grail of humbuckers, the original Gibson PAF (Patent Applied For) model. They have a focused bass response with a hint of extra midrange presence.

I really like the look of a gloss black guitar. When it’s a PRS and plays and sounds as nice as this one, it’s just icing on the cake. Comes with PRS archtop case, paperwork, hang tag, and yes, the original set of PRS (McCarty) Archtop pickups are in the case, should you decide to switch back to the stock sound.

$2075 shipped in the lower 48. Sorry, but I don't ship out of the USA.

If I can net $4400 for the pair, I'd give someone a heckuva "two-fer" deal on these PRS beauties.

I know at least two of you are thinking about it!
