I finally found some of the photos! :) They're blurry - but you get the idea.

I bought this new in 1998 or 1999 from fellow member Russ. He was a PRS retailer at the time. It is a Semi-hollow CU22 with McCarty switching. Vintage Yellow, of course.

Sure wish I had it back! Those were hard times and I was dirt poor after my divorce. I was only able to keep it a few months. I didn't even own an amp back then so I never heard it plugged in.

Are there any other SH CU22's out there with McCarty switching?

Very cool axe...They way i look at it... you are in a much better place...and the pictures serve as a reminder of how far you have come! (although I'm sure actually having it back would be a better one!)

I remember that guitar being really light, and easy to play...
Hans, ya can't keep them all....trust me, I've tried!

What a unique and "pure" pleasure it must have been to own that instrument and only play it acoustically... Very cool Hans... Thanks for sharing!

I had an orange Cu22 SH with McCswitching.... I think it was a late 90s guitar, too. I cant find any pics, though. Very cool guitar.
