PRS press release
Reintroduced for 2013, the PRS Custom 22 is a classic workhorse with all the tones you’ve come to expect from your PRS and a distinctive, musical, warm midrange.
The Custom 22 and 24 are now both offered with the choice of 57/08 pickups or HFS treble and Vintage Bass pickups, wired for a redesigned 5-way blade switch, which offers a unique dual humbucker option. The choice of pickup models complements the guitars’ standard features – maple top, mahogany back, mahogany or rosewood 25” scale length Pattern or Pattern Thin neck, and rosewood fretboard.
In the 1990’s, PRS artists Mark Tremonti of Creed, Dave Navarro of Jane’s Addiction and Mike Einziger of Incubus all employed HFS treble and Vintage Bass pickups for their balance of aggressive, musical, clear highs and strong midrange and bass. In 2008, PRS’s 57/08 pickups were introduced. These pickups were designed to capture a vintage ‘50’s humbucking tone and have become PRS’s most coveted vintage-inspired pickups.
This voicing option exemplifies the palette of tones available from PRS and allows musicians to better tailor their instrument to their desired sound.
