Notes: The instruments built by the Paul Reed Smith company are among the most influential and coveted electric guitars made anywhere. Introduced in 1993, the PRS Custom 22 has been the firm's workhorse model for decades, with its highly figured maple top, solid mahogany set-neck construction, and player-friendly features like the low friction nut, locking tuners and comfy 10" radius fingerboard.

This handsome example is a one-owner guitar in 100% original condition, with a deeply figured tiger maple '10' top, and natural blonde finish. At just 7lb 9oz, the guitar is nicely balanced and a pleasure to hold. Smooth low action with a fresh high precision setup, over the traditionally contoured 'wide-fat' C profile neck, solid and comfy in the hand.

This guitar was made in the last year for the original and widely coveted Dragon I pickups, with their initimable crunch and detail. The 5 way pickup selector affords tremendous versatility in tone, with full humbucking or single coil options available at the twist of the switch. Well maintained, the guitar is free of pick, buckle, thumb or fingerboard wear, showing only a few random lacquer nicks from its years of play.

A classic model from a celebrated builder, the PRS Custom 22 is a striking and versatile instrument for the demanding player. One only: call now.
