    NGD - P22 Trem - and Hello

    Hello, first post, first PRS.

    I have a modest stable of much loved guitars that now, very happily, includes a PRS. Before this P22, my #1 was an LP from Gibson's Custom shop, That LP is the only other guitar in the same price range as the PRS, which is why I mention it. It was actually about $500 more than the PRS. I'm not going to say one is better than the other, cause that would be oversimplified and misleading. The LP has a moody, highly articulate growl that seems supernatural, and that on it's own assures it's place forever in my collection.

    The LP also digs into my ribs and weighs in at 11.5 lbs. So, ergonomically, the PRS is a breath of fresh air to me. I am stunned at the clear singing quality of this PRS on every string across the whole fretboard. This is a guitar that makes me sound better than I am. It also stays in tune better than any hardtail I've ever played. I could go on, but that's enough of my yackin'.

    I've really been enjoying the positive tone of these PRS forums. That, and the abundance of positive feedback about PRS guitars in general around the net are what removed the last of my doubts before pulling the trigger on this purple plectrum eater:










    ps. Sorry I only have the dealer shots right now.

    pss. In the last photo, you can see the wings on the headstock have a different, noticeably darker shade than the rest of the headstock. That phenomenon is actually only visible from certain angles. Check this one out, the wings actually look lighter than the rest of the headstock:



    Weird and wonderful

    Anyway, I'm in love. Can barely even look at my other guitars at the moment.

    Welcome to the forum. That guitar, my friend, is stunning. In regards to the different colors of the wings, thats where side pieces are glued during assembly of the neck/headstock before they cut the shape....both of my American models have that as well. If you go to the P22 Trem in the "Products" page, you'll see the same thing in the picture of the headstock. I've been dying to try one of these, so congrats!!!!

    Gorgeous! Enjoy the heck out of it!
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.
