The first piezo-equipped solidbody guitar from Paul Reed Smith.
Paul Reed Smith Guitars is proud to announce the P22, the company’s first piezo-equipped solidbody guitar. The P22 comes standard with a flamed maple top, mahogany back, mahogany neck with a 22 fret rosewood fingerboard, and a redesigned PRS/LR Baggs piezo system. PRS and LR Baggs partnered more than a decade ago to design the piezo system found in PRS’s popular hollowbody models.
This new system retains the same circuit design as the existing system, giving the P22 the same tonal authenticity and real world practicality as PRS hollowbody guitars. The redesign of the board itself yielded a version that is more than 60% smaller than the original PRS/LR Baggs system, allowing it to comfortably inhabit a solidbody guitar. Uncovered 53/10 pickups round out this guitar’s specifications and help define the P22’s voice.
Piezo systems have long allowed guitarists the versatility of wielding both acoustic and electric guitar tones in one instrument. The PRS Hollowbody II and Singlecut Hollowbody II both come standard with the original PRS/LR Baggs piezo and have achieved a great level of popularity in PRS Guitars’ product line. The addition of a solidbody model will give musicians a new and unique tool to add to their own lineup.
The P22 is pure solidbody versatility. Call or click to order.

Comments about PRS P22 Flame Maple Top Electric Guitar:
What a player! The upper fret access is excellent. I'm fretting chords at the 14th fret and they ring like a bell. The piezo system sounds great through my PA. The neck feels just right. This guitar oozes quality, and it should. As expensive as it is, it is actually a bargain. Get one and you'll see what I mean. I got the McCarty Sunburst finish and it is perfect. It looks great without being too showy. I have mixed feelings about the bird inlays but when I'm playing, I can't see them, so who cares? I bought this to play not hang on the wall.
