PAUL REED SMITH
The PRS S2 Custom 22 Semi-hollow electric guitar's chambered mahogany body is topped by maple with an F-hole design. This exhibits a warm, punchy midrange and full bottom that's ideal for rock, blues, jazz, fusion, and more. Experience incredible vintage sweetness, clarity, and extended tonal range, by virtue of the PRS S2 Custom 22's upgraded 85/15 "S" humbuckers. Wrap your hands around this guitar's rosewood-capped Pattern Regular neck, and you'll have a hard time putting it down. Perform everything from subtle expressive nuances to full dive-bombs with this guitar's vibrato bridge/tailpiece. Complete with iconic bird fingerboard inlays, the PRS S2 Custom 22 Semi-hollow is a great-sounding, great-playing electric guitar.
In their never-ending quest for guitar perfection, PRS has created the S2 series of guitars. These guitars were designed to give you all the tone and playability that the PRS Maryland factory is known for in an affordable, beautiful instrument. Key features of this series include PRS S2 locking tuners, custom-wound pickups, the PRS Pattern Regular neck shape, PRS bridge, and a hybrid gloss finish. The PRS S2 Custom 22 Semi-hollow delivers amazing playability and big guitar tone at a killer price.
Playing your favorite licks through the PRS S2 Custom 22 Semi-hollow's 85/15 "S" pickups is a wonderful experience. That's because 85/15 "S" pickups are modeled after the 85/15 pickups Paul Reed Smith designed for PRS’s 30th anniversary. From shimmering cleans to blistering high-gain tones, the clarity and extended tonal range provided by these pickups make the S2 Custom 22 Semi-hollow the ideal workhorse guitar. A push-pull tone pot further fortifies your sonic arsenal with a range of spanky single-coil tones. At Guitar World, we love the sweetened, vintage-inspired sound of 85/15 "S" humbuckers.
The PRS S2 Custom 22 Semi-hollow gives you a Pattern Regular-profile mahogany neck fitted with a rosewood fretboard. A hallmark of PRS quality, neck shapes are, of course, critical to your playing experience. Perfected after years of prototyping, the Pattern Regular neck carve is based on Paul Reed Smith's original, pre-factory neck design — the same one used on instruments he built in the late '80s at PRS's Virginia Avenue location. You'll love the playability and feel of the PRS S2 Custom 22 Semi-hollow electric guitar!
