Description

PRS’ reputation has always been impeccable. Since 1985, they have produced high-quality instruments that have been played by countless artists of all different styles. Combining beauty with functionality, their guitars are renowned for their looks, tones, and playability. Every time you pick up a PRS, you will feel inspired.

The Custom 22 is a classic design, with its elegant double-cutaway body, set-neck construction and high-grade electronics and hardware. This model sports dual 85/15 humbuckers with a 5-way blade switch for versatile tones perfect for the stage or studio.

2 Frets Less, More Tones:

Taking away 2 frets may not seem like a big deal, however for a dual humbucker guitar it completely affects the tone of the instrument – in a good way!

As the rosewood fretboard is slightly shorter, to maintain the same scale length and tension you need to move the bridge further back. This therefore widens the gap between the neck and bridge pickups, and while the bridge pickup will still sound the same and have plenty of bite, the neck pickup will produce a warmer tone as it is close to the centre of the guitar’s scale length.

The Custom 22 therefore offers you a greater variety of sounds over the Custom 24, and you can play blues and jazz styles with a more convincing tone thanks to the neck pickup’s darker sound. 22 frets also provides a more classic look, if that’s what you’re into.

Made In Maryland:

Like all USA PRS guitars, this has been made in their Maryland factory. During the building process, they mix the wisdom and skills of their traditional luthiers with the consistency of machines, to make a guitar to the highest quality every time while still keeping that personal hand-made touch.

With a mahogany body and neck, topped with a beautiful figured maple top, this guitar has a balanced sound with a focused midrange that cuts through the mix.

The Neck on this guitar has been cut to the “Pattern” profile, an update of the old "Wide Fat" PRS neck profile that really fills the hand comfortably for a vintage feel.

Professional Electronics:

The Custom 22 utilises PRS' 85/15 pickups, and update of Paul's original humbuckers from 1985 with a modern update. Unlike the more traditional PAF-style pickups in the PRS range, the 85/15s have been designed with greater clarity for the more modern style of player. The Custom 22 features 5-way switching via a blade switch so you can access single-coil-style tones in position 2 and 4.

Second To None Hardware:

Not many companies can say that they have spent so long getting their hardware just perfect. PRS are one of the few that can. The PRS Gen III Tremolo and Phase III Locking tuners work together to keep the guitar in tune no matter how extreme you play. Even if you go full on Hendrix, this guitar will still stand its ground.
