I am on a mission to find this needle in a haystack (PRS Archtop II) that was sold on eBay in 2009 (or thereabouts) :( :

If anyone has any info or a similar fiddle with which they are willing to part, please don't hesitate to PM or email!

Thanks!

Sorry, man. My Archtops aren' going anywhere.

Best of luck with the hunt. Rest assured, if I ever run across the one you posted above, I'll let you know.

you don't find Hans, he finds you...

Just so we can help you more effectively, can you list exactly what you're looking for, and if you're willing to compromise on anything?

McCarty Archtop II
Artist package?
Natural?
Quilt?
Piezo?

I played mine for the first time in a while on the weekend and fully appreciate that sentiment.
Everytime I play it I am surprised that they didn't get enough love to stay in the product line.

Hilarious.

Not necessarily looking for an Archtop II. Def looking for a McCarty model (not 2002-2004), but I find myself sorta holding out for one with a Piezo. Would consider an Archtop spruce, and Archtop I or II.. I think my definites are moons and nickel hardware, so no Artist. Prefer some sort of natural, woody top.. not gung ho on bursts. Quilt is nice, but not a must-have. Thanks for asking.. much appreciated.

The Archtop 4 (with spruce top and BRW fretboard) is a very good buy right now.
