2005 PRS Custom 22 Artist 20th Anniversary,



More PRS’s are coming! This one is a perfect guitar for the pro player. Brand new refret by my guy Martin, with zero hours on the frets plus clear coat dings primarily around the edge (as shown here) make this a top-shelf PRS priced for the working guitarist. Artist Package includes Artist-grade top, gold hardware, and colorful Paua shell bird inlays, plus a rosewood headstock veneer with Paua shell PRS logo. Stunning. This one features the wide-thin neck carve, the preference of around 80% of our customers. The Artist package includes the top quality figured tops which exceed their “10” tops (termed “artist grade” by PRS), extremely colorful Paua bird inlays, rosewood headstock overlay with inlaid colorful Paua shell inlaid logo, Artist case with velvet interior and dual combo locks, gold hardware including Phase II locking tuners and PRS tremolo. Many players prefer the Custom 22, which has a stiffer feel than a Custom 24. This is due to the 22 having a “shorter” neck, i.e. with the bridge and bridge pickup are set further back in the body which means the scale is the same as a 24, but the neck doesn’t extend as far from the body. It’s very much a Les Paul feel, although with much easier playability in the upper range, not to mention a wider selection of tones. These guitars are a good example of “guitars as art” and each are unique and works of beauty. Finished in a dark amber, with a beautifully bookmatched maple top that looks great from any angle. Other than the clear coat dings this guitar is in pretty nice shape and would look great as a stage guitar. Playability is top notch with these Jescar 51108 frets. They’re .051X.108, a bit larger than a Dunlop 6150. Just a really nice guitar. It’s not often that I can offer an Artist for the price of a regular Custom but this one is welcome exception. With brand new frets it’s a sweet deal at $1850. Includes Artist case, trem arm, spare tuner screws, Allen keys, and paperwork.
