Often times when piezo pickups are put in a solidbody guitar, it yields very poor performance. The PRS Paul Reed Smith P22 Electric Guitar is the company’s first piezo-equipped solidbody guitar and it blows away anything else of its kind on the market! The acoustic tone produced by the redesigned PRS/LR Baggs piezo system has to be heard and played to be believed. The PRS P22 comes standard with a figured maple top, mahogany back, mahogany neck with a 22 fret rosewood fingerboard.
Uncovered 53/10 pickups produce signature Paul Reed Smith tone and are able to be blended with the piezo pickup thanks to two outputs on the P22 guitar. One output is a Piezo/Magnetic Pickup mixed signal that allows you to select between all humbuckers, all piezo or a blend of the two. The second output is dedicated to only the piezo signal, giving the PRS P22 guitar huge versatility on the stage and in the studio.
