    Mystery Archtop

    Hi all,

    Is there a PRS service where I can ID a guitar based on description and serial number? I'd really like to know exactly what I have.

    Thanks

    Jim

    most of the members here could probably ID your guitar from a few pics....

    edit - you could email customer service with your serial number: custserv@prsguitars.com , but their earlier records are sketchy. So, if your guitar is not newer, they may not be able to tell you as much as you want to hear.

    Thanks rugerpc. I didn't want to take advantage of people but I am certainly happy to if they don't mind.

    Here are some photos. I hope I don't have to remove the pup to see the modcat cause I am not exactly "handy".

    Appears to just be a Early 2000 Hollowbody II 10-Top. They are amazing guitars! I love them. Have a FBJ Quilt Artist Pack i love and another Artist Pack HBII in production.

    Thanks guys. Wow. Fast response. And I also got one from PRS already. Dayum. They work on Monday? Who knew

    From PRS it is:

    Thank you for writing PRS Guitars. This appears to be an Archtop II, quilted maple 10 top and back, mahogany sides, mahogany neck with a wide/fat carve, East Indian rosewood fretboard, Natural finish with Archtop pickups and piezo system.

    So now I know. it is 10 top from and back and Archtop II. I wish it had the hangtag but I guess that was lost by the first owner.

    Thanks again/

    Jim
