Other features, such as mammoth ivory private Stock eagle and bird inlays with 14 karat gold outlines, add to this guitar's special appeal…" PRS Specification sheet signed by Eric Granroth, Joseph Knaggs and Paul Reed Smith and dated "November 25, 2008".

"With brilliant acoustics and a vast array of tones, the Hollowbody II has been a constant favorite in our dynamic lineup of semi-hollow instruments. The combination of the maple top and back with mahogany sides provides tonal clarity and extraordinary resonance." (PRS website).
