    CU 22 SEMI HOLLOW PRIVATE STOCK AT GC

    Remember how good I was saying it sounded? I borrowed my old Production CU 22 semi hollow (First one) I had given to an employee for a Xmas bonus, and that I had bought from Moss at TGS. It sounds KILLER. Always could hang right with any of my PSs. So I brought it to GC to A/B with the one they have there, and .......just as I thought, the one there sounds even better. And its not a trem, and has the tone sucking non adjustable tail piece. They have it listed as new, and it is NOT a new guitar. They have no paper work on it, and its not listed anywhere on any of their sites, even under used gear. (Which it is) Soooooo....they are going to call me tomorrow after they call PRS and get all the details on it. What i know...Its a CU 22 semi hollow, wicked flame maple top (check below for yourself) plain mahogany back, and what i think to be a really ugly light brown Indian RW neck. Outline birds (Ugh) and McCarty switching. No idea what the PUPs are, but my guess is unetched 57/08s. The action is kind of high, but that can be adjusted, and there is no buzzing anywhere. I also do not think its nitro (bummer) but the bottom line is it sounds INSANE. Louder than the production one acoustically and plugged in, and bigger sounding, with WAY more sustain. Soooo...I have to see what the absolute bottom price is, and then maybe trade something in on it. (Not that I have anything I want to give up) Here is the little singer.

    I have no idea, and neither did they. It did not have the RW sound I am familiar with, so you may have nailed it! I should know tomorrow. Its a 2009

    Well, since you say it sounds so great, obviously the tone sucking tailpiece isn't, you know, tone sucking.

    I look at it the other way around. Think of how much better it would sound with the new two piece.

    Are you sure it doesn't sound louder, bigger, and have more sustain 'cause the action is so high?
