With brilliant acoustics and a vast array of tones, the Hollowbody II has been a constant favorite in our dynamic lineup of hollow instruments. The combination of the maple top and back with mahogany sides provides tonal clarity and extraordinary resonance.
The LR Baggs/PRS Piezo System comes standard, providing musicians with the versatility of wielding both acoustic and electric guitar tones in one instrument. There are two output jacks on the Hollowbody II Piezo, allowing guitarists to plug into their favorite electric guitar or acoustic guitar amp or DI into a soundboard. By utilizing the separate blend control, the tone of the Hollowbody II Piezo's 58/15 LT pickups can also be combined with acoustic sounds through a single output.
For 2024, PRS Guitars is updating the tuning machines on many of our Core guitars. While, aesthetically, our new Wing buttons are designed to echo the 12th fret bird wingspan design, they were first and foremost designed for tonal reasons all the way back in 1982. Because these buttons are lighter weight than their metal predecessors, they are subtracting less energy from the vibrating strings, thus helping the guitar ring longer and at a more musical note. The removal of the tuner’s locking feature on non-tremolo-equipped guitars further decreases their weight.

"Want sustain and tone that just keeps going....and going....and going, long enough to make Nigel forget what he started? Look no further than the Paul Reed Smith Hollowbody II electric."
- American Songwriter
"CAMILA’s music often goes from soft acoustic guitar arpeggios to power chords and leads, all within the same song. The PRS Hollowbody is my essential tool for achieving those changes in a live situation. I just love the sound of the Piezo and the Humbuckers. I even combine both sounds on some songs and the blend is beautiful. It’s like having two guitars in one. It quickly became my main axe."
