Iconic Custom 22 Design
The Custom 22 has been a staple of the PRS range of guitars and provides musicians with versatile and smooth playing guitars that have been used in many different genres of music. The 2018 Custom 22 model is the more vintage flavoured instrument in the range and has a pronounced mid-range to stand out in the band mix. It provides you with PRS’s notorious attention to detail and versatility in an instrument that can be a true work-horse.
The SE Custom 22 is crafted from resonant and warm-sounding mahogany with a maple top for added bright overtones and harmonic sparkle. This classic combination is coupled with a maple neck and rosewood fingerboard, providing the mid-focus and resonant tonal basis for this guitar.
The Custom 22 range is designed to bring the best of classic guitar designs in a ‘half-way’ instrument that has its own distinct voice. A 25” scale length is the ideal compromise for easy string bends but still provides the correct string tension for long sustain and thick tones. The double cutaway asymmetric body provides easy access to all 22 frets, with the lower horn featuring a bevelled cut to further assist your left hand. Medium frets are smoothly finished and the whole guitar sits comfortably in your hands with its bevelled top and set-neck design.
PRS brought the 85/15 “S” pickups to the SE range in 2017, and have been delivering a versatile performance ever since. With a 3-way switch they can access powerful bridge tones and mellow flute-like sounds, to cover all bases from clean sounds through to overdriven aggression or biting lead sounds. They are very responsive to player dynamics and volume/tone control adjustments and will provide a vintage-vibe tonal range with increased versatility. These features make the PRS SE Custom 22 a versatile instrument with an ability to flick effortlessly between genres.
PRS Build Quality
Anyone who has heard Paul Reed Smith talk about guitars knows that he is fastidious in his research and development and his continual drive to improve his guitar designs. The PRS SE Custom 22 is a true reflection of that, and the SE range has continued to evolve beyond it’s initial design brief of being a “Student Edition” instrument. Pro-level machine-heads and bridges along with solid tonewoods and premium construction methods help to deliver accurate tuning and intonation with a fantastic playing experience. This is a true professional performer that can span the genres and deliver stunning tones and playability night after night.
