Paul Reed Smith

PRS Custom 22 Trampas Green

SKU: 1-0289386

The Custom 22 is a classic PRS model. This time in a tasteful Trampas Green finish.

The Custom series by Paul Reed Smith has become a household name in guitar land. Where the Custom 24 marked the starting point of this beautiful brand, the Custom 22 was a variation on this guitar with a slightly more vintage character. The core of this guitar: 22 instead of 24 frets, two humbuckers and split coil options, all wrapped up in a reliable and stable guitar made from the very best tonewoods. Thanks to the somewhat thicker Pattern neck, the PRS Custom 22 has a more old school feel. Trampas Green is a term that rings a bell with PRS fans. Named after one of the PRS employees, this beautiful green finish is a sought-after colour. We understand that very well! Other noteworthy features are the new nitro over cellulose (CAB) finish and the TCI-tuned pickups. Below you can read more about what exactly the TCI tuning entails. This Custom 22 has it all! Includes case.

What is TCI?

TCI is an abbreviation for Tuned Capacitance and Inductance treatment . This way of fine tuning pickups originated during the design process of the Silver Sky, in collaboration with John Mayer. Both Paul Reed Smith and John Mayer were obsessed with recreating the Stratocaster single coils from the '63 to '65 as accurately as possible, with just the right balance of highs and lows. When a pickup is wound, the coils are also capacitors (capacitance), resistors and inductors (inductance) at the same time. Until now these three elements could not be influenced separately, but Paul Reed Smith has cracked the code to isolate and fine-tune these factors. Thanks to the TCI treatment, the pickups are now even better tuned to the guitar to produce the purest guitar sound to date. TCI is therefore more than just a new kind of pick-up, it is a completely innovative process. That process is now applied to all PRS pickups offered in the Core line, with the exception of some Signature models.
