So, the purge continues.....You might not be surprised that, when I find I like electric guitars with acoustic (piezo) flexibility, I just might overdo it. Judge for yourself....... First, a "rather unique" Paul Reed Smith Hollowbody II. You will either love or hate the color. This one is an "Artist Package", which is a cut below the high end Private Stocks, but not necessarily a lot. A "better than 10 top" AND back. The Hollowbody model really is that. It is NOT a semi-hollow, having only posts underneath the bridge. This is a more recent version.....A BIG improvement over the originals (I had an original 1999). Better finish (eliminates the thick glop), 57/08 pickups rather than "Archtop" and upgraded piezo. A bit less toward "jazz", a bit more usable for live rock. A relatively smaller body, making it very comfortable for performing. IMO, PRS has just about the best switching system I have found for separating/blending electric and "acoustic" sounds......Separate amps, or combine into a single amp with a single mono cord. Note that, unlike many PRSi. there is no pickup splitting. OHSC (a good one!) and the guitar is as near to mint as you are likely to find. Let me ask for $3900. None more Bonnie Pink! Second, another PRS, this stepping up to Private Stock quality. It is a DC-245, meaning a shorter (Gibson-like) scale. It has 59/09 pickups, which are the second iteration of "PAF replicas" from PRS. As the name implies (1959) they are just a touch hotter than the first (57/08s). This one has a 5 way switch which expands the sound options with 2 split pickup options. The Tiger Eye finish is one of my all time favorites (similar to three Hamer Talladegas I had). And applying it over a lovely quit top makes it all the better. Comes with the typical Private Stock Leather HSC.....Very sturdy and HEAVY. It has essentially the same electronics as the HB II, except for the added versatility of coil splits. And the hotter pups with the excellent solid body setup do make it the more aggressive of the two. I bought this new and it is in near mint condition. Asking $4900. Finally, something a bit off the beaten track. Around about 2008-2009, a company back east decided to build guitars. The head of the outfit was actually a college prof and he assembled a group of folks to do this on the side. Did a pretty decent job, too. Here is a link to a review of the guitar that is very favorable (and convinced me to look for one) . https://www.premierguitar.com/articles/Jarrett_Guitars_Zaffiro_XJ_Electric_Guitar_Review So, the "Pink Lady" is gone! Looks something like a potato, no? Or a Les Paul that fell off the Weight Watchers wagon. It IS bigger than a Les Paul it jsut about every way, but chambered and not as heavy as you might think baed upon appearance. One caution, it has a very full neck, so if that turns you off...... There is a bit of history on this one. It was actually first supplied to a guitarist (Christopher Robin, believe it or don't!) to use until they got his "signature" model completed. Once upon a time, I had a picture of him playing it on stage with the Allman Brothers. Those were the days. But I digress. This one is not exactly typical, as it has two separate push/pulls for coil splitting. A mini 3 way switch for choosing magnetic/piezo/both and a separate volume knob for rolling in/out the piezo. A very nice tweed type HSC. I think you will have a hard time finding one like it. Now and then, one pops up, sometimes at a lower price. My only caution is that when they threw in the towel, the leftover parts were sold at auction. I have seen a fair number assembled by someone other than the original folks and the results are often "not so good". I should mention too that the pickups are from the "Duncan Custom Shop". Engraved as "Jarrettbuckers". I find them to be on the moderately hot, not overly so, side. I actually plugged this in last night against my (slightly more costly) Huber Orca 59. IMO, the Zaffiro held it own quite well. Had I not so much stuff, and did not have a CO cooking, I reckon I'd be a bit more careful about letting it go. Let me just throw out $1300 to start. All prices include shipping (CONUS only, sorry), PayPal "friends". Please add fees if necessary. Posting here first, before proceeding to "them udder places" (Like the Farm Journal). For comparison.....
Up for grabs is a 10 Top PRS, with piezo, that was purchased NEW about a month ago. This guitar was plugged in only once, to test, and has sat in its case, unplayed. Since I don't consider designating any second hand guitar "new" it is definitely Mint, or Mint++. Guitar is very light, at just over 7 lbs., and has a nice amber to dark burst, on a flamed maple top. There are 2 magnetic PUPs and the piezo, with a toggle for the mags, and a mini toggle to select mags, piezo, or both. Rotary controls are for volume, tone and mag/piezo blend. Further, with 2 output jacks the mag and piezo signals can be combined over a single cable, or with the use of an additional cable each signal can be sent to a separate amp. Original hard shell case is included. Guitar ships to the lower 48 states only, for $2,700 complete, including PayPal and insurance.
