Wrap It Up - The PRS Custom 22 Figured Maple Top W/ Pattern Neck Carve And Rosewood Fingerboard In Faded Whale Blue Smokewrap Finish
Since its introduction back in 1993, the Custom 22 has offered a unique tonal option for serious players and with it's definitive PRS tone and playability. Played by internationally touring artists, gigging club musicians, and aspiring players who want quality, this Custom 22 features PRS's patented Gen III tremolo system and PRS 85/15 pickups with volume and tone controls and a 5-way blade switch. The model 85/15 pickups were personally designed by Paul Reed Smith to offer a specific clarity, plus an extended high and low end.
PRS is driven to quality and to innovation, furthering the guitar industry’s already rich heritage within each product. They build without compromise in their tone, their playability or their beauty. The right wood choice is the foundation of every PRS instrument, so only the greatest care is taken in sourcing, cutting, drying, and grading each species of timber used. Every piece and every process is important to the finished instrument, so their team of luthiers focus - every step of the way - to ensure you are getting their best effort on what will be your very personal instrument.
Neck shapes have always been a high priority for PRS and a hallmark of PRS quality. A guitar should feel comfortable, like "home," as soon as you pick it up, and the neck is paramount to that connection. These new neck shapes reflect modern tooling and programming that allows PRS to even more precise shape and consistency in that reproduction.
Over a decade in the making, the PRS V12 finish blends the thin, resonance-enhancing characteristics of an old-school nitrocellulose lacquer finish with the reliability you expect from a modern acrylic finish. It has a classic feel all its own, making your axe feel like a cherished old instrument - one that will stay flawless-looking for years to come.
