The PRS SE Custom 22 is an incredible value. This superb solidbody electric guitar gives you classic PRS playability while serving up vibrant humbucker tone from its pair of PRS Tone Furnace pickups. This gorgeous instrument has a comfortably contoured mahogany double-cutaway body topped with eye-catching maple and toneful PRS Tone Furnace humbuckers. The guitar sports a satisfying Wide Thin profile neck with a rosewood fingerboard, 22 frets, and classic PRS Bird inlays. The guitarists here at Music Experience are big fans of the PRS SE Custom 22. Get your hands on it, and you will be too.
The two humbucking pickups in this SE Custom 22 are Paul Reed Smith-designed Tone Furnace humbuckers. An update on PRS's original humbuckers, the Tone Furnace pickups are designed to be a fantastic choice for a wide variety of music and playing styles. They offer you plenty of output for driving your amp hard, while sounding clear and detailed when you want. These SE humbucker closely resemble the tones of the U.S.-made versions found in the solidbody electric guitars crafted at PRS's Maryland factory.
To give this PRS SE Custom 22 solidbody electric guitar a rich yet balanced sound, PRS began by choosing the tried-and-true combination of mahogany topped with maple. This instrument's mahogany body offers natural tonal warmth, which is offset perfectly by the brighter tone of its maple top. These tonewoods join forces with the guitar's 85/15 S pickups to deliver a balance of depth, snap, and great midrange projection that propel you through the mix.
Wrap your hand around the SE Custom 22's Wide Thin profile neck and you'll understand why it has been a favorite among guitarists in every genre for years. Because it's where your hands meet the instrument, neck shapes are critical to your playing experience. Paul Reed Smith takes this into very careful consideration when designing all of their neck profiles. The Wide Thin neck carve is very comfortable for players desiring a faster feel than the Wide Fat, while maintaining plenty of wood for optimal sustain.
The PRS SE Custom 22 adds a more vintage tone and feel to the traditional Custom platform. This guitar has a pronounced mid-range and clarity that provides a sweet, full tonal base, allowing it to easily sit in the mix of your band or recording. Like its 24-fret brother, the SE Custom 22 sports a maple top with mahogany back and 25” scale length. Additional appointments include dual humbuckers with a volume, tone, and 3-way toggle switch and PRS-designed stoptail bridge. For players who grew up on 22 frets, the SE Custom 22 is a solid choice that will take anything you throw at it.
