1999 PAUL REED SMITH MCCARTY ARCHTOP II

 

A RARE, ULTIMATE ARCHTOP FROM A PREMIER BUILDER

{}Features:


*4” deep (at bridge) hollow mahogany body

* Brazilian Rosewood fretboard


* Paua Bird Inlays


* Ebony Tuners


* PRS archtop pickups

The PRS Archtop II was made for a period of just 3 years ranging from 1998 and 2001.  Few were sold due to their extremely high price tag of $5000+.  But the guitar fearures extraordinary workmanship and is extremely beatiful looking, sounding and playing instrument.  They rarely come up for sale.

The guitar features a carved maple top and back with mahogany sides and rosewood headstock veneer. All models are 2 3/4" depth at rim, 4" depth at bridge, 22-fret wide-fat mahogany neck, rosewood fretboard, PRS adjustable stoptail bridge, and McCarty Archtop pickups with 3-way toggle.

This one is in mint condition and sounds incredible both acoustically and electric.  It was strung from the factory with 12 gauge strings.
