PRS Semi-Hollow and Hollow Body Electric Guitars
Staying in the semi-hollow class but turning things up a notch is the Limited Run 408, named for the custom pickups that use mismatched bass and treble field widths to focus and enrich the tone. The 408 Semi-hollowbody Guitar aims to give you the resonance of a hollowbody design without giving up solidbody levels of sustain. With its uniquely versatile pickups and artist-grade flame maple top, this guitar sounds as great as it looks.
One of the most famous PRS semi-hollow guitars is the Hollowbody II. Every version of this guitar has a brilliant acoustic character, outstanding clarity and impressive resonance. If you'd like that in a single-cutaway shape, take a look at the Singlecut Hollowbody II. As well, if you're big on your guitar's looks, consider the "10-top" models, which are set apart by having the best of the best figure in their maple tops. Whichever Hollowbody II you choose, you'll get a PRS/LR Baggs Piezo Pickup System in addition to the 57/08 pickups. By blending the two systems together, you can create your own custom combinations of acoustic and electric tones.
If you prefer a fully hollow body guitar, then you'll want to think about the JA-15. Designed for jazz first and foremost, the JA-15 is joint venture of Paul Reed Smith and Paul Jackson Jr. This is a spruce-topped, maple-backed guitar that puts out impressively clear resonance. 57/08 pickups, a 2-piece adjustable bridge and the signature PRS "pattern" neck shape make the JA-15 a versatile guitar that rockers can enjoy just as much as jazz-men.
Go ahead and take your pick - when you want the best of the best, PRS semi-hollow and hollow body electric guitars will more than satisfy. The reputation that comes with the name 'Paul Reed Smith' is a well-deserved one that comes through in every note and in every minute you spend onstage with one of these works of art in your hands.
