12-String Tone, Perfect Intonation
The PRS Hollowbody I 12-String offers players a new spectrum of sound, allowing musicians to explore the uniqueness of a 12-string instrument, without sacrifice.
Traditionally, 12-string instruments benefit players with a lush and full sound, and the PRS Hollowbody I 12-String is no exception. The vintage-inspired 58/15 LT pickups are warm and deliver excellent note separation, perfectly balancing this instrument’s silky harmonic resonance. With the meticulously designed 12-string neck, players can expect perfect intonation and instant comfortability, fingerstyle or full strum.
Rush’s Alex Lifeson spent many hours with the Hollowbody I 12-String over the course of his career, he had this to say:
“The playability is instantly silky and facile, the tone bright, clear and shimmering, and the finishing details are a testament to the PRS craftsmanship. The broad fretboard is a joy to play, and I was blown away by the intonation - of course, split saddles! Why doesn’t everyone do that?”
