The PRS P22 is a revolutionary solidbody guitar. Starting with all the hallmarks of a classic PRS guitar, the P22 adds a Piezo system in the tail, adding a fantastic acoustic sound to the range of tones.
A 3-way toggle switch allows the player to choose between a full electric sound of the classic PRS 57/08 pickups, an authentic electro acoustic sound, or the option to create a mix of both which adds a whole new range of tones to the guitar. Two outputs are provided, so that you can separate the acoustic piezo sound for recording or have separate effects loops going to the electric and acoustic sounds.
On the Electric side, you still get the fantastic PRS features including a 5-Way Blade switch to play with the 57/08 pickups. The Grey black quilted maple top looks stunning and the feel is like that of a Custom 22.
The P22 takes a well loved PRS design and given it an extra dimension with a major innovation that sets it high above the crowd. Check out the power and beauty of the P22 today!

Here's what PRS say about the P22
The P22 is the company’s original piezo-equipped solidbody guitar, providing musicians the versatility of wielding both acoustic and electric guitar tones in one instrument. PRS and LR Baggs partnered more than a decade ago to design the piezo system found in PRS’s original hollowbody models. The new system retains the same circuit design as the original, maintaining tonal authenticity and real world practicality. There are two output jacks on the P22, allowing guitarists to plug into their favorite electric guitar or acoustic guitar amp or DI into a soundboard. By utilizing the separate blend control, the tone of the P22’s 57/08 pickups can also be combined with acoustic sounds through a single output.
The P22 comes standard with a figured maple top, mahogany back, mahogany neck with a 22 fret rosewood fingerboard, and a redesigned PRS/LR Baggs piezo system. Uncovered 57/08 pickups round out this guitar’s specifications and help define the P22’s voice..
