A Stunning Solidbody Guitar with Natural Acoustic Sound!

The PRS P22 Artist Package solidbody electric guitar gives you the best of both worlds: the classic tone of vintage-style humbuckers plus rich acoustic sound. Inside the P22's chambered mahogany body, there's a modified PRS/LR Baggs piezo pickup system that captures rich, natural acoustic tone. A dedicated volume control lets you blend this acoustic sound in with the P22's 53/10 humbuckers, or you can send it to a separate amplifier altogether. Combine that with a gorgeous flame maple top, and you've got an axe that looks as good as it sounds: the PRS P22 Artist Package.

PRS P22 Cambered Solidbody Guitar at a Glance:
  • Choice tonewoods protected with PRS's amazing V12 finish
  • PRS/LR Baggs piezo pickup system lets you blend in natural acoustic tone
  • Uncovered 53/10 pickups deliver sweetened humbucker sound
Choice tonewoods protected with PRS's amazing V12 finish

To give the P22 a rich yet balanced sound, PRS began by selecting the tried-and-true combination of mahogany topped with maple. The P22's chambered mahogany body gives you natural tonal warmth, which really adds character to its acoustics. By nature, mahogany is a bit dark sounding, which is where the brighter tone of the maple top comes in. Together, these tonewoods give you an incredibly balanced sound. And thanks to PRS's ultra-durable V12 finish, the P22 feels and sounds like it's coated in well-worn nitro.

PRS/LR Baggs piezo pickup system lets you blend in natural acoustic tone

Redesigned to fit the solidbody P22, the PRS/LR Baggs piezo pickup system onboard this guitar gives you access to the natural acoustic sound of its chambered mahogany body. A control knob lets you blend the sound of this pickup in with the sound of the P22's humbuckers, adding a woodier quality and extra sustain to your tone. There's also a separate output next to the P22's main output that lets you send just the sound of the PRS/LR Baggs piezo pickup system to an acoustic amplifier. You're going to love the range of tones you can get out of this electric guitar!

Uncovered 53/10 pickups deliver sweetened humbucker sound

Speaking of tone, the P22's 53/10 pickups rock. Inspired by the sound of '50s single-coil pups, 53/10s give you sweetness and warmth - and bite when you dig in, but being humbuckers, you get all this vintage goodness without the noise. PRS even went so far as to procure the same wire coil equipment that '50s-era guitar makers used to make some of the best sounding pickups in history - just so they could give you the timeless tone you desire.
