    NGD:Custom 22

    I've been looking for a second US PRS to complement my Cu24 for while now.
    Yesterday I got this from Sound Affects Music in the UK

    Custom 22
    Top 10 quilt in Orange Tiger
    Pattern thin East Indian rosewood neck
    57/08 pickups

    Here are a couple of the dealers shots;








    It plays like a dream, and boy does it sustain! I can feel the vibrations in the neck.

    Here next to its 24 fret sibling;


    Looking forward to spending some time getting better aquainted and gigging with her.

    Thanks to Andy at Sound Affects for his time and excellent customer service.

    Gotta go I've got a guitar to play

    Thanks for all your kind words.
    I'm sure it's a common thing but photos just don't do it justice. When you look at it in person the slightest change in light or angle really make it 3d.

    What a pair you have there.

    Rosewood necks do feel amazing...so far managed to stick to just one, but at some point I will hopefully have a "player-grade" IRW necked McCarty, these seem to pop up used from time to time for relatively reasonable prices.

    Does you CU24 have 57/08s as well?
    1990, 91, 92 & 97 CE24s | 1991 CU24 | 2000 CU22 Semi-Hollow | 2003 & 04 SE EG
    2008 SE Semi-Hollow Soapbar | 2011 CU24 GC Throwback | 2012 Signature Limited
    2013 408 Brazilian | 2013 Paul's Guitar | 2013 HB II | 2013 CU24 Swamp Ash Limited
    2013 CU24 | 2013 XPRS 408 Semi-Hollow | 2014 CU24 Semi-Hollow
