PRS "Sculpture" Custom 24 Piezo-Only Hollow body


Recommended Posts

Remember this? 

This one was (and probably still is ) on ebay France for over £7.6k.   But look at the control plate.  Peerhaps the curve and the pic angle makes it look a bit off....:-k???

Inspired by the Chet Atkins SST.

Pretty to look at but there are much better acoustic pickup systems now than a piezo.  Without a deeper body though it probably doesn't matter what pickup is in it as there just isn't going to be a full rich acoustic tone to amplify.  No volume or tone controls leaves you strictly relying on  your amp to shape tone.  And only $13,500 (yikes).  I guess it was primarily designed to look cool, which it does, but to me it's a totally impractical guitar (not functional for performing) and cost a ton of money so no  thanks.  Another one of those "why do this" situations where the answer is "because we can".

nice -  I didn't watch the video, but if that would allow someone to play typical electric guitar solos etc in a great acoustic sound (and be a genuine step up from the Strat VG and the like) then I could see why they would do it.  there would be people who would buy this if they can afford and justify the cost.

Another one here


When browsing in some store such as tkmax, I see stuff that at 1st glance looks appealing. On closer inspection it always turns out be just 'overdone'; always crossing the line into tacky and garish. That's what such PRS guitars look like to me.

thirteen thousand...


five hunnerd dollars




and..  I didn't think it sounded all that "Acoustic" either   I'm kind of surprise the Taylor haters haven't shown up to to start crucifying this.
