What we say:
Straight out of Maryland and mentored by Ted McCarty, Paul Reed Smith has had quite a journey: from building one-off custom-built guitars and dodging past bouncers at gigs to show to big name artists to now: heading up one of the most revered and successful modern American guitar companies. Smith and his ever-growing company have a reputation for creating super-high quality players’ guitars that blend some of the greatest features found across the spectrum of electric guitar brands to produce what, in his eyes, is the ultimate axe. Players as diverse as Al De Meola, Carlos Santana, Dave Navarro and Stephen Wilson have sworn by PRS guitars for decades and more people are discovering the unique magic of these guitars every day. From simple, no-nonsense workhorses to exotic, exquisite dragon-jewel-inlaid works of art, PRS guitars have made their mark on the guitar world in a big way.
Each and every USA made PRS guitar we sell has been personally viewed and selected by us in person: we see them before we buy them and often have first pick from all models coming into the UK: this means we can choose from the very best examples to bring you a range of particularly special instruments.
The Custom 22 weighs in with some strong midrange power to compliment the famous PRS clarity. The slightly closer neck gives a looser, slinkier feel and notes bend with considerable ease. The Custom 22 is a great do-anything guitar that offers a wealth of tones form it’s 85/15 pickups, wound with vintage wire on vintage machines. These pickups are accessed via a five-way blade to give you thick humbucking tones and glassy single coils, all with the benefit of the set neck construction and mahogany body with maple cap. This guitar has a fantastic Honey finish which reminds us of the finishes used on Carlos Santana's favourite PRS Signature models. It's a great colour! The Pattern Thin neck (an update of the previous Wide Thin carve) has the classic Bird inlays, a classic PRS trademark. Most Custom 22's have Pattern necks, so the Pattern Thin neck on here is unusual and worth noting.
Another example of PRS design and engineering is the tremolo: it’s non-locking but totally efficient and retains pitch and tuning with a really great feel. Even details like the tuners and the strap buttons have been considered with care to be efficient, high-performance and totally selected with the player in mind. This is a player’s guitar through and through.
