A Solidbody Guitar with Natural Acoustic Sound!

The best of both worlds, the PRS P22 solidbody electric guitar gives you the classic tone of vintage-style humbuckers plus real acoustic sound. Inside the P22's chambered mahogany body, there's a modified PRS/LR Baggs piezo pickup system, which captures its natural acoustic sound. A dedicated volume control lets you blend this acoustic sound in with the P22's 53/10 pickups, or you can send it to a separate amplifier altogether. Now add a fantastic quilt maple 10 Top, and the PRS P22 electric guitar easily looks as good as it sounds!

PRS P22 Chambered 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
Select tonewoods protected with PRS's amazing V12 finish

To give the P22 a rich yet balanced sound, PRS began by choosing the tried-and-true combination of mahogany topped with a select quilt maple 10 Top. The P22's chambered mahogany body gives you natural tonal warmth, which really adds character to its acoustics. By nature, mahogany has a slightly dark sound, 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, playing with even just the P22's 53/10 pickups is a wonderful experience. That's because PRS designed their 53/10 pickups to give you the sweetened sound you'd expect from real vintage humbuckers. They even went so far as to buy the same coil wire manufacturing machine that '50s-era guitar makers used to make some of the best sounding pickups in history - just so they could give guitars like the P22 the timeless tone you desire.
