i have to admit i've always used to think about PRS guitars as rich guitar-playing lawyer's wall trophy guitars. then one day i found a pretty good deal (that means: affordable for a PhD student's salary) on this mint 2nd hand 10-top PRS custom 22 and decided to give it a try... do you know that feeling when you grab a guitar hit the first chord and feel instantly connected to the instrument and inspired to play? that was exactly my first reaction after trying it out. this guitar has become my main player since then.
here's the specs: mahagony body + neck w/ maple top, 22 frets, rosewood fretboard, transparent black flamed maple finish, birds inlays, PRS locking tuners, stoptail bridge, PRS Dragon II pickups, wide fat neck, 5-way rotary pickup selector
i was first sceptical about the intonation with the PRS stoptail, but it intonated flawlessly with standard gauges, and (to my surprise) even with a .52 - .10 set, so i won't be replacing that anytime soon
this is the first guitar i own i feel like it's perfect from stock. The Dragon II pickups are the perfect blend of vintage and modern tones, and the hardware, wiring and fret-work and setup of this guitar is amongst the best i've encountered.
anyway, on to the pics! (these are actually the pics the original seller took)
i'll post some selfmade pics as soon as we get some fucking sunlight here in germany
I'll be needing this
