The SE Hollowbody II Piezo | PRS Guitars


collapse expand iconDescription

The PRS SE Hollowbody II Piezo is the most versatile instrument in the PRS SE Series' nearly 20-year history. This hollowbody electric guitar combines the balanced, clear, resonant tone of a hollowbody with the power and stability of a solidbody, along with dual volume controls and output jacks that provide players the ability to blend acoustic and electric tones.

Newly Designed Piezo Pickup System Provides Acoustic Versatility

The PRS SE Hollowbody II Piezo's most exciting feature is its newly designed LR Baggs/PRS Piezo pickup system, which gives musicians the versatility of wielding both acoustic and electric tones in one instrument. Two discrete volume controls (for magnetic and piezo pickups) and two output jacks (labeled "Mix/Piezo" and "Magnetics") allow players to blend the guitar's magnetic and piezo pickups to create a variety of tones. Players can also use the jacks separately, routing the magnetic pickups to an electric guitar amp and the piezo pickup to an acoustic amp or DI into a PA system. When using only the magnetic output jack, the piezo system is bypassed, allowing the PRS SE Hollowbody II Piezo to function as a standard hollowbody electric guitar even if the piezo battery has drained.

Maple Top and Mahogany Body Produce a Resonant Tone

Constructed with a maple top, mahogany back and sides, the PRS SE Hollowbody II Piezo offers a light shimmer and snap in an attractive Black Gold Burst finish. The guitar's fully hollow construction gives it an extra-resonant tone with enhanced midrange. Its Wide Fat neck profile provides a comfortable feel for most playing styles.

PRS-Designed Pickups Deliver Vintage-Inspired Tone

The PRS SE Hollowbody II Piezo is equipped with PRS-designed 58/15 "S" humbucking pickups that deliver clarity, balance and a musical hollowbody tone. These pickups capture the nuance and detail of a guitar's acoustic properties while also providing the character of a vintage-style humbucker.

Premium Features and Components

The PRS SE Hollowbody II Piezo also features a rosewood fretboard, adjustable stoptail bridge, 14:1 tuning machines, and CTS pots. All together, these premium components contribute to a high-performance instrument with remarkable tone, playability and reliability.
