Here comes another of my best guitars... boo hoo. Really.
1998 PRS McCarty Hollowbody II - 10 top and back. Purple (black cherry?) finish with amazing flaming everywhere. I think this is the first year this model was offered, which will make it even more collectable. Deluxe PRS case with big cushy leather handle. Plays like you think it would, sounds amazing... If you have never played one of these, they a probably the best hollowbody design out there (OK, so that is pretty subjective). They feel like they are breathing when you play them.
The neck is amazing, wide fat carve, with the most colorful bird inlays I have seen outside of a PRS private stock instrument. The fretboard grain is very figured and looks like it could be brazilian rosewood to me, but I will not swear to it. I do not know the history of this guitar, but it could have been a special order guitar. Lets just say it is some gorgeous rosewood to be safe. The top is a really rich flamed purple color, the back seems just a little bit darker purple to me, still amazingly flamey, no matter what angle you look at it from. If you are trying not to be noticed, this is probably not the guitar for you.
The condition is excellent, at least a 9 out of 10, but people always find something, so I wont say 'Mint'. No dings or scratches to speak of, but some light play wear and pick swirling. This guitar is hard to put down.. just a warning if you are a collector only - this one is great to play and sounds amazi
