A few years back, PRS released a limited edition run of 12 incredible, high spec Wood Library guitars. The name of this series was the "Dirty Dozen", and this Custom 22 was #2/12. It's a real show stopper and a great example of the level of attention to detail and craftsmanship delivered by PRS.
With a stunning carved figured Maple top and Mahogany back, it looks every bit as good as it sounds. The Light Tiger Eye finish is stunning and perfectly complements the guitars premium aesthetic.
A comfortable 22 fret Rosewood fingerboard proudly bears the signature PRS birds and its 25" scale length Mahogany neck and wide thin profile offers a comfortable and stable performance. With the PRS patented tremolo and locking tuners, you get flawless tuning stability and great intonation, the trem is super responsive and allows you to add some lush texture to your sound.
Such an incredible guitar needs to be equipped with a pickup selection to match. A pair of 53/10 pickups deliver just the punch that this guitar needs, with a whole range of tonal variations, the Custom 22 is a powerhouse both on stage and in the studio.
It has been exceptionally well cared for and played only at home – It would be so easy to mark the nitro finish, but alas all is fine. Granted you cant even see a slight sheen from pick marks. An initial tour of the shiny gloss finish will reveal that it has been well cared for. Even on very close scrutiny you wont find any hints of wear to the top surface of the gloss finish – Ding and dint free. Includes original hardshell case and candy as seen. The headstock has also been signed by Paul Reed Smith himself and this guitar comes complete with original hard case.
As with many exceptional fine commodities in life, the price is not cheap, but that is not the point here. It is the exclusivity of such a wonderful musical instrument that feels, plays, performs and sounds every bit as good as it looks. I hope the next potential owner will play it, yet handle it with care and in doing so will acquire many many years of remarkable pleasure, joy and satisfaction from owning such a unique and wonderful instrument.
