Every PRS instrument is built to make a statement, and the Special Semi-Hollow sticks to the company's ethos - to create stunning, elegant instruments that emit only the finest tones possible. With a fresh yet familiar look, the Special Semi-Hollow closely resembles the stunning John Mayer signature Super Eagle models from previous years.
With gorgeous aesthetics, fantastic tonewood choices and top-grade electronics and hardware, this instrument is practically unmatched when it comes to build and sound quality.
The semi-hollow body gives you a vibrant and highly-resonant sound even when unplugged, this instrument truly sings when plugged into an amplifier.
The body's Mahogany back ensures a deep and rich tone, giving the Special Semi-Hollow some essential low-end warmth for jazz or blues tones. A "10 Top" Flamed Maple top gives this instrument a pristine look, accurately book-matched for better symmetry and featuring a deeper grain for a near three-dimensional vibe. This material also serves an important tonal purpose, bringing in some crucial and bright top-end that gives plenty of crisp definition to notes and chords.
Maintaining PRS' tried-and-tested tonewood combinations, the body is paired with a Mahogany neck, featuring the brand's pattern neck carve. Feeling substantial and solid in the left hand, this particular shape provides a familiar feel for traditionalists, with its asymmetrical design ensuring great support for the thumb at all areas of the neck.
Adorned with a sleek Rosewood fretboard for optimal playability, PRS' signature Mother of Pearl bird inlays contribute an extra layer of class to an already spectacular-looking guitar.
