PRS Special 22 Semi-Hollow Wood Library Blue Fade #0333133
PERHAPS THE SPECIAL 22 WITH THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FINISH TO NOW: BLUE FADE.
The very last special 22 we received is really incredibly beautiful! The flame on this top really comes into its own thanks to the blue fade finish. And not only the top is insane no have you seen this neck yet? What a picture!
About the Special 22 model
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 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 58/15LT pickups in the bridge and neck position with split-coil capability on both humbuckers Unlike the "normal" Custom 22, the Special 22 offers the ability to split both humbuckers separately from each other for a beautiful, clear single-coil sound. To finish it off completely, the Special 22 Semi-Hollow is equipped with a Narrowfield middle pickup, so that you can conjure up very nice Strat-like sounds in the so-called intermediate positions (positions 2 and 4).
