Guitar Of The Week:Paul Reed Smith - DC 22 - 10-Top With Bird Inlays!


Guitar Of The Week - Musician's Friend Private Reserve

You have asked and Private Reserve has answered. Following the  runaway success of last year's limited-edition PRS DC 22 electric  guitar, we are proud to announce the release of another exclusive run of  the distinctive DC 22. Based on customer requests, we asked Paul Reed  Smith to make a fancier version featuring a 10-Top, classic bird inlays,  and the new ultrathin V12 finish! This exceptional instrument combines  Paul Reed Smith's early guitar body shape, a 22-fret neck, and a  stoptail bridge for a unique combination which is gorgeous, highly  collectible, and built for tone!


The new version PRS DC 22 is an ultrarare variant with appointments  to satisfy the most discerning guitarist. In our opinion, it is like getting a PRS with Private Stock features at a production price! Every element of this guitar  was put together with tone and comfort as top priorities. The Musician's  Friend Private Reserve team specified the lightest, most resonant body  blanks and the densest, liveliest mahogany neck blanks. Add in the  non-dampening V12 finish and wonderful PRS 59/09 pickups and there is no  doubt that this model was built for incredible musical tone and  exceptional responsiveness. We chose three of our favorite PRS finishes:  Vintage Yellow, Fire Red Burst, and Violin Amber Sunburst, and  specified a Santana neck profile. If you want a guitar that stands out  from the pack, buy a DC 22 today!
