The PRS SE Custom 22 Semi-hollow guitar takes a familiar concept and pushes its playability to the limits with a comfortable streamlined body and sounds that inspire. This instrument sports a contoured thin mahogany body with a figured maple top for stunning looks and enhanced tone. What’s more, the SE Custom 22 Semi-hollow is recently updated with an elegant “violin carve” top that delivers superior strumming hand comfort. Plug this guitar in and dual 85/15 "S" humbuckers snap to life with warm, vintage-inspired tone and dynamic resonance that ranges from soft and sweet to feisty and fierce when pushed hard through a driven amp. This guitar also comes equipped with a genuine PRS tremolo for expressive accents and bends — a rare feature for a semi-hollow! Onstage or in the studio, the PRS SE Custom 22 Semi-hollow delivers the look and feel of a top-notch electric guitar.

Semi-hollow resonance and warmth

Semi-hollow players are often forced to cope with bulky guitars in exchange for the tone they want. But with its thinline construction, the PRS Custom 22 Semi-hollow largely bypasses this conundrum. This thinline mahogany body sings with the sustain and feedback resistance of a solidbody, while infusing its tone with extra air and sweetness. This makes the PRS Custom 22 Semi-hollow light and balanced across the board. It plays comfortable in any position — from playing sitting down to marathon gigs onstage. What’s more, this body is freshly enhanced with a shapely “violin carve” top, a gratuity previously reserved for more exclusive PRS models. The violin carve adds a contoured surface for your strumming hand with superior comfort compared to the sharper beveled edges of previous SE Custom 22s. Pair that with the mahogany neck’s wide-thin carve and you have the recipe for a fast, playable instrument like no other.

PRS 85/15 "S" pickups offer remarkable clarity and extended tonal range

Picks and riffs really come to life when played through this guitar's 85/15 "S" pickups! A perennial favorite with guitarists at Music Experience, these incredible electronics are modeled after 85/15 pickups — a personal design that Paul Reed Smith made himself for the company’s 30th anniversary. From shimmering cleans to blistering high-gain, 85/15 "S" pickups deliver bold clarity with a responsive feel and an impressive definition.

Stout mahogany and snappy maple tonewoods

Gorgeous, rich mahogany gives this PRS SE Custom 22 Semi-hollow electric guitar a strong classic tone with a lasting sustain and a familiar voice. The mahogany is carefully capped with figured maple for a stunning look and a touch of brightness that complements mahogany’s rich midrange depth. Together, these tonewoods yield a strong yet balanced sound with body and snap.

What PRS Says...

TThe SE Custom 22 Semi-Hollow has musical midrange and outstanding resonance. The semi-hollow body provides an airy, sweet tone but with a twist of the tone knob, the dual humbuckers can get plenty of bright spank. Additional appointments include a maple top and neck, mahogany back, rosewood fretboard, and dual 85/15 “S” pickups with volume and push/pull tone controls (for coil splitting) paired with a 3-way blade pickup switch. 85/15 “S” pickups lend remarkable clarity and extended high and low end to this semi-hollow’s voice. The SE Custom 22 Semi-Hollow is both versatile and comfortable, making it a reliable tool for professionals, a solid choice for beginners, and a welcome addition to any arsenal.
