(Open Box) A classic configuration with a vintage voice.

The PRS SE Custom 22 adds a more vintage tone and feel to the traditional Custom platform. This guitar has a pronounced mid-range and clarity that provides a sweet, full tonal base, allowing it to easily sit in the mix of your band or recording.

Like its 24-fret brother, the SE Custom 22 sports a maple top with mahogany back and 25 in. scale length. Additional appointments include dual humbuckers with a volume, tone, and 3-way toggle switch and a PRS-designed stoptail bridge. For players who grew up on 22 frets, the SE Custom 22 is a solid choice that will take anything you throw at it. Includes gig bag.

    Comments about PRS 2017 SE Custom 22 Electric Guitar:

    I have been a guitar player for 20 years and have always wanted a PRS guitar. This is my first one and the guitar is beautiful and sounds amazing. I do strongly suggest swapping the PRS SE tuners out for something better. I replaced them with Gotoh MLB3-G locking tuners in black and they work great only issue I had was i had to add a piece of a toothpick to the holes on the back of the headstock for the since screw per machine head stock holes are bigger than Gotoh screws. Another issue i have found and repaired on the guitar is the input jack the plate was lifted on one side and the screw was stripped out of the wood. Yet again a simple fix tossed a couple pieces of a toothpick in the hole problem solved. Other than those minor fixes right out of the box that in my opinion are not a huge deal things rattle loose during shipping sometimes. I think this guitar is amazing wish the custom 22 had the coil split but went with the 22 because the custom 24 was out of stock in the whale blue and still is at this time of me typing this out. I would deff. recommend this guitar no sharp fret ends weighted really nice and plays like a dream. great guitar for a beginner and for someone who has been playing as long as I have.


    Great after an adjustment on the truss rod

    Comments about PRS 2017 SE Custom 22 Electric Guitar:

    I have had the PRS SE Custom 22 for 2 weeks, and look forward to it's first gig this weekend. For the money, the guitar is unbelievable. I have owned and played an American made PRS Standard 22 for 15 years, so I have a good baseline to compare it to. The guitar arrived in perfect condition, and I could tell by the protective plastic on the back plates that it had never been played. They started to peel off after just a song or two, so I knew the item was brand new.

    I was a little concerned about the action of the guitar upon arrival. I checked it against my Standard 22, and it was way high, hard to play. I needed it adjusted right away. The documentation that came with it had directions on adjusting the rod, and there are videos online. I adjusted the rod about 1/4 turn clockwise, and now the action rivals the American made PRS. Before adjusting the rod, I immediately changed the strings to a 10 gauge set. The guitar came with 9 gauge.

    I like the tone better than my original model; much less muddy in the midrange section. It is also lighter than the original, so that was a plus. The gig bag is very nice, but I hate to travel with it in a soft case. It fits into the original Standard 22 hardshell case, but the neck has about a .5" gap between it and the padding. I fold and put a washcloth in there. Other people have commented that when they buy a hardshell PRS case, they have the same issue with the new models.

    I called Musicians Friend to see if the 10% holiday sales discount applied to all items, and she said that she could offer me 25% off! No tax, Free shipping. I have seen used models for the price I paid for this.
