    As a luddite they're pretty much the perfect PRS for my tastes. Begged a guy in NY (for six months) to sell me this one from the Wood Library 25, and I've also had a VAB 10 from the later V12 run. Love the satin finish on the neck, the nitro sunburst (colour floated over clear) and that great '59 style neck shape.

    Here's the keeper. Best, and biggest sounding PRS I've had the pleasure of strumming.

    25 total in the Wood Library/numbered nitro run. First 12 Lemonburst, second half Tobacco.

    According to Private Reserve there were 80 in the later V12 run.

    25 Lemon
    25 Tobacco
    10 Vintage Yellow
    10 Fire Red
    10 Violin Amber Burst

    Yeah, the color of the one with dots is interesting. Good thing it
    doesn't have a maple neck and a two-piece bridge...

    Looks like they still have a ton on hand. I pulled down the options and got a list of available serial numbers. Great price and smokin' fiddle!

    Was totally unfamiliar with this guitar. My favorite platform is the Santana, and this looks like a 22 fret version of that.

    What's the difference between this guitar and either a "22 fret Santana" or the traditional Custom 22 please???

    Never seen a 22 Fret Santana that's not a private stock. The DC22 is pretty much that guitar, only with a stoptail. The first run with the satin neck and nitro finish is a little more unique and I believe those were a wood library run. The second run usually had better tops, the V12 finish and were available with old birds. The main differences between the 2nd run and the 2013 Custom 22 are the shorter scale length, thicker body (and shape), bigger neck profile, old birds, 59/09 pickups, and headstock shape w/phase 2s.

    Aw, come on...Lucite is a tone plastic.

    IMO, the Golden Eagle is the best iteration of the Santana-bodied models. *drool*

    I think it'd be cool as heck, but not sure I'd want one for myself. If that makes sense.

    But I love the body shape, and would certainly dig a wood one. With P-90s!!
