Piezo system, new finish, and new neck shape.
The Singlecut Hollowbody II offers brilliant acoustics and a vast array of tones with the sleek aesthetic of a single-cutaway body shape. The combination of the maple top and back with mahogany sides provides tonal clarity and extraordinary resonance.
The Singlecut Hollowbody II comes standard with V12 finish, a Pattern neck and 57/08 pickups. The PRS/LR Baggs Piezo System is also standard on this instrument, allowing you to plug into your PA or recording console and your amp at the same time.
Finish should enhance the look, sound, and feel of a guitar by accentuating the wood's inherent beauty and feel without hindering its natural resonance. And PRS Guitars' new "V12" finish does just that. Introduced at Experience PRS 2010, "V12" is a very thin, hard, and clear finish that will not crack or react with thinners. After roughly 12 years in development, it is halfway between acrylic and nitro but with a classic feel all its own. "PRS models with this new finish feel like old instruments," said Paul Reed Smith.
Pattern Neck Shape
Neck shapes have always been a high priority for us and a hallmark of our quality. A guitar should feel comfortable, like "home," as soon as you pick it up, and the neck is paramount to that connection. Perfected after years of prototyping, the new "Pattern" neck is an updated Wide Fat PRS neck style based on Paul's pre-factory design. These necks were found on the instruments built for Carlos Santana, Peter Frampton and Howard Leese from the late 70's to the mid 80's.
Whether in woodworking, machining, or cast and die work, pattern making is the art of arriving at a perfect standard which can be duplicated or used to create new designs from by "offsetting." All of our necks came to be as a result of offsetting from this original, Wide Fat design.

Comments about PRS Singlecut Hollowbody II Electric Guitar:
I have had this instrument for 4 weeks & gigged with it weekly and the tones are simply amazing! You can go from a ES335 tone to a big box jazz sound with ease, The 57/08 pickups are pure PAF sounding with killer blues tones. The piezo through my Fishman Loudbox mini will produce a realistic acoustic dreadnaught tone. I could not be more pleased,
