The new line of PRS electric guitars are a real joy to play, and the beautiful chambered SE Custom 22 Semi-Hollow makes for an excellent choice. With a wide-ranging, airy voice, this model can suit many different musical genres and playing styles. Featuring some new and improved appointments, the SE Custom 22 Semi-Hollow is both adaptable and comfortable, perfect for the playing pro.
The 2017 SE Custom 22 Semi-Hollow has a chambered body for an even more resonant sound. The body has a beveled maple top with a sublime flame maple veneer with a single F-hole cutout. Also, the double cutaway body shape allows full access to all of the frets that the neck has to offer. The back is made from mahogany which is the ideal tonewood partner for the maple top.
The 2017 SE Custom 22 Semi-Hollow has a scale length of 25 inches and is firmly fitted with a maple neck. The neck has a Wide Thin profile which feels incredibly comfortable in the hand, and is particularly suited to lead guitarists and faster players. A smooth rosewood fingerboard tops the neck and presents you with 22 frets with the recognisable bird inlays as a guide.
Dual humbuckers have been carefully voiced by Paul Reed Smith and selected to amplify this excellent Semi-Hollow model. The pickups are situated in the neck and bridge positions respectively and imitate the pickups found in core PRS models for an exceptional tone. The updated 85/15 "S" pickups create sweet highs that chime wonderfully. The low and midrange notes are well-defined, offering you a universe of balanced tones to explore. The 85/15 "S" humbuckers are a coveted pair of pickups, and you can only get these when you purchase a core PRS model from the range.
The controls enable you to tweak your Volume and Tone with ease. There is also a 3-way toggle switch to alter between pickup combinations.
Hardware and Finish
A reliable stoptail bridge fitted to the lower bout of the body maintains a great connection between the body and the strings, allowing the resonant airy tones to come through the single F-cutout. The headstock features PRS-designed tuners which uphold tuning accuracy with precision. PRS have also added a new logo to the headstock which features Paul Reed Smith's signature. All-nickel hardware adds a neat finish to the beautiful flame maple veneer top and semi-hollow design.
The PRS 2017 SE Custom 22 Semi-Hollow has been designed with "resonance and grace" as its foundations. As with any PRS model, the technicians ensure that it is set up perfectly and ready to play from the moment you take it out of the box.
