Few guitars even come close to the craftsmanship of Paul Reed Smith. This jawdropping P22 is loaded with versatility that may put your other guitars out to pasture.
Crafted from gorgeous, toneful mahogany with a beautiful maple top whose grain pokes through the lovely blue finish! The "C" profile mahogany neck (.847"-.937") sports a 9.5" radius rosewood fingerboard. The nut measures in at 1 21/32". And get a load of those dope bird inlays! *chef's kiss*
The P22 Piezo provides you with the versatility of wielding both acoustic and electric guitar tones in one instrument. PRS and LR Baggs partnered up to design the onboard piezo system. There are two output jacks on the P22 allowing you to plug into your favorite electric guitar amp, or to go into an acoustic guitar amp or DI. By using the separate blend control, the tone of the stock PRS 53/10 humbuckers can also be combined with acoustic sounds through a single output.
Here's a breakdown of the pickup switching positions!
Position One: Bridge humbucker
Position Two: Bridge humbucker with neck single coil, in parallel
Position Three: Bridge and neck humbuckers
Position Four: Neck single coil with bridge single coil, in parallel
Position Five: Neck humbucker
The mini toggle switch activates the piezo system. It will select between the humbuckers (down), piezo (up), or both systems (middle).
And to top it all off, this amazing guitar weighs in at just 7.24lbs. Light and airy for those long sets.
This guitar is lightly used but does have some signs of playwear. There is surface level pick swirl on the top, visible in the right light. The back shows some buckle rash and surface swirl. And there is a noticeable ding on the back of the neck behind the 5th fret (see pic). None of this takes away from how sweet this axe looks nor does it impede the playability (which is fuggin' top shelf, y'al!).
This beauty has been given a full fret level and setup by our pro luthiers to ensure that it arrives to you with zero issues, ready for stage or studio. It will ship the next day with the original hardshell case and case candy.
