Thanks man! Gotta love payment plans :)

It was in a used music shop in Nashville and according to the store belonged to an old PRS endorsee whose name escapes me at the moment. Hans also pointed out to me that it appears to have some sort of early version/prototype McCarty pickups when I opened her guts and showed him. I need to learna little more jazz to do her justice though :P

I had this (not a good pic, but only one I have):

http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i302/tsuei05/00HBI.jpg

Got it used at a GC for a steal. Wish I had never sold it. Dumb. It was kind of beat up, real player. I gigged it a few times and loved the way it sounded live. Funny, even though the pups were no where near as powerful as the HFS in my other stage guitars, it covered the bases better than any of my other non-HFS guitars. Smooth sustain for daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaays.... Did a full set with it doing everything from Motorhead to Deep Purple to The Zombies to Tom Petty. *sigh* Someone kick me in the

Would that PRS endorsee happen to be Mike Einziger from Incubus? Looks exactly like the one he used to own, and I read somewhere that he got rid of all his PRS guitars recently.

I bought this 2008 Hollowbody II in July, used here in the UK, I am the 3rd owner, it was originally a custom build for a PRS employee. I love it, it is my only PRS, I was really lucky as it is in superb condition, hardly used at all. I used to have a 1998 Spruce Hollowbody which I really regret selling.

Everyone has seen this one already, because she was the one PRS used to introduce the model, use for print adverts, and sales onlines (for instance http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/prs-25th-anniversary-singlecut-hollowbody-ii-cb-electric-guitar).

It's a lowly red singlecut but it's got piezo so it's my go-to "acoustic to electric" mode guitar. And the gold bling gives me street cred.

It's been to the PTC once when I first got it for unetched 57/08s and a separate tap for each pickup (Volume pot for the neck and Tone pot for the bridge). It'll probably be heading back for a piezo in the near future. ;)

I ordered this in '02. I've only seen a few others in turquoise, and they've either had birds and/or 10 top & back. I'm not one who's willing to shell out for fancy tops and inlays, so I settled for this "plain" thing. ;)

I had my heart set on Whale Blue and had the shop transfer one in, but I was totally underwhelmed when I saw it (plus the top was cracked!:o). My wife picked turquoise. Actually, we weren't even engaged yet. She insisted I buy the guitar before I bought her a ring. Definition of a keeper. :dancing:

It was a spruce top and there was a crack in the top at the pickup selector. This was before the PTC but I took it up to Elderly Brothers Music in Lansing, MI to get looked at to see if it was just a surface finish crack. They said that it wasn't and most likely it would continue to crack. I would've kept the guitar but not for what I paid for it. There was no middle ground with the shipping place...either they take it back for the insurance price of you keep it. I bet PTC could've fixed it right up! The closest thing to a PS that I will ever get. It was purchased on eBay and I verified it's legitimacy with PRS before I bid. The guitar was built for Mike Einziger around the time he was switching to Fender's...so I'm thinking it was in the PS department getting built during that time and somehow the guy I bought it from had a 'connection'. At that time he sold a good many one-off PRS guitars and was in the Maryland area. That guitar was amazing though...

I can't say that they do. At the time I contacted PRS Customer Service to verify the guitar was legitimate based on serial number before bidding. I talked with the seller on the phone and he suggested doing this if I was concerned. Not saying it wasn't a part of the article above because anything's possible, but hopefully PRS would've taken action when I gave them the serial number and it had been stolen from the factory.

I thought of that article as soon as I read your post. It just sounded very familiar! Back when this was all going on, BaM was buzzing with info on the thefts and how they did it and the two stories lined up. Not to mention I've always been a huge fan of Magnum, P.I. and learned all of my detective work from television. :laugh:

Damn fine guitar, though.:wink:

Close-ups of the Archtop II by a friend of mine, who is a semi-pro photographer (and a PRS player himself):

Can anyone else comment on the whereabouts of the white archtop with P90s? I'm very seriously interested in owning this guitar (probably like a lot of other people out there)!

Thanks for your time!
