PRS Special 22 Semi-Hollow McCarty Tobacco Sunburst 2020
The PRS Special 22 was one of the most popular models of 2019, with Narrowfield middle pickup. Beautiful!
What a beautiful guitar this is! The PRS Special 22 Semi-Hollow debuted in 2019 and quickly became a popular model within Paul Reed Smith's lineup. This time we managed to get hold of an amazing McCarty Tobacco Sunburst version, with an equally beautiful top. Just not 10-Top, but we can't stop watching. The basis of the Special 22 Semi-Hollow is the classic Custom 22 model. That is to say: maple top with a mahogany body and neck, a 25" scale, rosewood fingerboard and of course a reliable and excellently working PRS Patented Gen III Tremolo system. In terms of elements it is also top notch, because this Special 22 is equipped with 58 /15MT pickups in the bridge and neck position, where MT stands for multi-tap. This refers to the split-coil capabilities on the humbuckers. Unlike the "normal" Custom 22, the Special 22 offers the option to use both humbuckers can be split separately from each other to a beautiful, clear single-coil sound.To top it all off, the Special 22 Semi-Hollow is equipped with a Narrowfield middle pickup, so that in the so-called intermediate positions (positions 2 and 4) you get very nice Strat- you can conjure up similar sounds.The PRS Phase III Locking Tuners complete the picture.What a beauty!Of course including case.
