PRS Left Handed Custom 22

By Aron Ortega

from California

Overall, I think this is a great instrument. Anything better IMO from the PRS camp will be probably be a four knob configuration, or something like a DGT. For us lefties, who knows when will PRS offer a new model, if at all? You better get one of these soon, last time we had to wait seven years...
A lefty guitar from PRS, finally!!!
Top quality wood and hardware. This is the darkest rosewood fretboard I own and it has a great feel. The new 59/09 pickups are great and versatile. The tremolo is great and along with the locking tuning pegs offers great tuning stability. The frets are probably close to a Dunlop 6105 wire. They are tall and not too wide. The split coil is awesome. You can get some great single coil sounds from this baby. Not quite strat-like (the woods are too different, I guess) but very interesting nonetheless.
It is absolutely top notch. PRS has a great QC and is famous for its consistency. I would say my only beef with the guitar is that the knobs are not truly left handed (not many guitar manufacturers actually do this). Whatever they did to these knobs makes them behave to the extremes. The volume knob loses gain way too soon and the tone knob has to be rolled off almost completely for you to hear any real difference in the tone. The volume knob is something you can get used to, but I have found that the tone knob needs to be replaced if one desires to achieve a decent jazz tone. You could argue that nobody would play jazz on one of these, but the existing features give you such versatility that, well, why not?
These guitars are expensive, there is no denying that. But if you can justify the investment, you will not be disappointed. I do not think you can these features and this quality for less money. YMMV

Smoked Orange

By Steve Michalowski

from Texas

Awesome. This was a big leap forward moving from my Highway One Strat to this PRS.
I like the push/pull tone knob single coil option. However the sound is very clean in humbucker mode on the bridge pick-up.
Craftmanship is very top notch. The Smoked Orange color is really really nice.
It is a lot of money but I told myself that if PRS ever made a Lefty version again I would jump right on it and I did.
