I know, for some of you that's not a big deal but it is for me. Living in NZ means we don't get to see a lot of different PRS models. I don't think there are very many P22s in NZ.
It's just a lovely guitar. It's got the Black Gold Burst finish and the surface looks like glass. Just stunning. The pattern regular neck felt very comfortable and the action was perfect. The 53/10 pickups sounded great. Each note was distinct, even with a good bit of gain, and they responded well when I dug in with the pick..
The piezo left me a bit cold. I'm not sure what I was expecting but it didn't quite sound the way I was expecting it to. Maybe I need to go back and give it another play to see how it sounds. The guitar also felt a little unbalanced, as if the body was a bit too heavy.
All in all, it's a lovely guitar but I don't think it's for me. I have much higher hopes for the Stripped 58.
