This guitar was designed to be a workhorse

With its gorgeous, bookmatched figured maple beveled top and solid mahogany back, the PRS S2 Custom 22 is sure to turn heads while delivering huge tone! The custom-wound S2 #7 Treble and Bass humbucking pickups deliver a massive universe of tone from shimmering cleans to blistering shred, making the S2 Custom 22 the ideal workhorse guitar for any type of gig. A push-pull tone pot further fortifies your sonic arsenal with a range of spanky single-coil tones. You can deploy the onboard S2 vibrato for everything from subtle expression to full dive-bombs. There's a lot of guitar here, but perhaps the most amazing thing is that PRS delivers this elegant instrument at a price that won't break a working musician's bank account.

The PRS S2 Series of guitars: extreme value

The PRS S2 Custom 22 delivers amazing playability and big guitar tone at a killer price. Call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer and order yours today!

Pattern Regular profile neck feels great and plays smoothly

The PRS S2 Custom 22 gives you a Pattern Regular-profile mahogany neck fitted with a rosewood fretboard. A hallmark of PRS quality, neck shapes are, of course, critical to your playing experience. Perfected after years of prototyping, the Pattern Regular neck carve is based on Paul Reed Smith's original, pre-factory neck design - the same one used on instruments he built in the late '80s at PRS's Virginia Avenue location. You'll love the playability and feel of the PRS S2 Custom 22 electric guitar!

PRS S2 Custom 22

Recently purchased the PRS S2 Custom 22 in black. You can certainly feel the quality and craftsmanship the first time you handle the guitar and it plays like butter. I really like the tone of the #7 PRS humbuckers played through my tube amp. Excellent guitar for the money, only wish it came with a hard case. This guitar is way too nice to transport in a gig bag but for the price of the guitar which Id consider a steal for what your getting, I'll gladly buy a nice hard case for it.Gig bag is high quality though.
