This exceptional model has arrived with a twin! The first of the hollowbodies is the Charcoal Cherry Sunburst, and the second, an equally stunning Orange Tiger finish. These two PRS guitars feature a piezo switch giving them the broadest of ranges for those looking for a guitar able to blues, rock, jazz - just about every genre you'd need. Accenting both double cutaway Flamed Maple bodies is a beautiful Rosewood fretboard, mahogany (pattern carve) neck, phase III locking tuners, 22 frets, PRS adjustable piezo stoptail bridge, 58/15 LT TCI treble and bass pickups all in a PRS hard case.
In the late 1990s, the first editions of the hollowbody were released to the public. Even though their body was based on that of the already famous McCarty 594, this second edition hollowbody from Paul Reed Smith has an entirely unique tone in comparison to its kin. Side by side, both models have intonation and tone you'd expect from any PRS, but there are distinct differences, specifically in the mids and highs when comparing these guitars. Add in the versatility of the piezo and the incredible 10-top, and these two Hollowbody II models from PRS are hard to beat.
This instant classic was created with the help of guitarist, composer, producer and instructor Mark Lettieri. The middle and bass pickups are this models claim to fame, with the model-specific Fiore-S Single Coil pickups. These pickups were carefully designed to cater to the player, being able to amplify even the slightest touch. The Fiore-H Humbucker pickup was Lettieri's request for enough versatility to accomplish both a smooth top end, but a powerful punch for high gain playing. These three pickups in combination with the 5-way switch gives the player a seemingly endless list of options when it comes to tone.
Two of these Fiores have arrived here at Heartbreaker. The first is the PRS Fiore in Sugar Moon and the second is the PRS Fiore in Black Iris. Both of these feature Swamp Ash bodies, Maple necks and fingerboards, vintage style tuners, nickel hardware, 2-point steel tremelo bridge, traditional PRS bird inlays and a beautiful "Fiore" flower logo truss rod cover.
When the Silver Sky was envisioned, the idea was never to replace a classic, but to improve upon it. The partnership between Paul Reed Smith and John Mayer made this idea a quick reality. This latest PRS Silver Sky with Moc Sand finish is just one of many that continue to make their way through our showroom here at Heartbreaker Guitars. Spending over 2 years in production, the duo created an instrument that many say has perfected the electric guitar. Much time was spent on headstock shape, tuners, bridge and pickups, to mention just a few. Mayer chose to invert the traditional PRS headstock shape to cater to his need for perfect intonation. The vintage tuners are traditional style, but PRS closed back locking tuners. The changes to the design go on in more detail inside our listing.
This specific Moc Sand model is made with a satin finish and looks incredible in combination with the color of both the body and maple neck. We see a wide variety of colors of the Silver Sky pass through Heartbreaker, and are accepting pre-orders of the limited edition PRS Silver Sky in Roxy Pink as seen in some recent performances from Mayer himself.
The hollowbody construction gives this model a fantastic warmth and woody tone, known across the PRS Hollowbody lineup. The traditional 58/15 LT pickups have now gone through the TCI (tuned capacitance and inductance) process, giving them even more clarity than before.
A flamed maple top wood, pattern vintage carve mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard with traditional bird inlays, 24.594" scale length, hybrid hardware, vintage style tuners, PRS two piece bridge, 22 frets, and PRS hard case make this McCarty the complete package for Paul Reed Smith player.
