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



    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

    I have stole these pictures from ebay (no affliation at all with the seller, I am in a different country anyway)

    This is gave me a serious Waynes World moment "she will be mine, oh yes she will be mine"

    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
    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 dont think so BUT that would be a fabulous snag if it was. I love Incubus haha Shawn - can you verify this with a serial number? haha

    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 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.

    That archtop is amazing! Is the single neck pickup a production model?

    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/guita...lectric-guitar).

    So... 25th Anni SC HB II CB, double 10!




    And Howie with her after a demo:
