Paul Reed Smith Guitars is proud to add the P22, the companys first piezo-equipped solidbody guitar, to its 2012 lineup. The P22 comes standard with a figured maple top, mahogany back, mahogany neck with a 22 fret rosewood fingerboard, and a redesigned PRSLR Baggs piezo system. PRS and LR Baggs partnered more than a decade ago to design the piezo system found in PRSs popular hollowbody models. This new system retains the same circuit design as the existing system, giving the P22 the same tonal authenticity and real world practicality as PRS hollowbody guitars. The redesign of the board itself yielded a version that is more than 60% smaller than the original PRSLR Baggs system, allowing it to comfortably inhabit a solidbody guitar. Uncovered 5708 pickups round out this guitars specifications and help define the P22s voice. Feature Neck Shape Perfected after years of prototyping, the new "Pattern" neck is an updated Wide Fat PRS neck style based on Pauls pre-factory design. These necks were found on the instruments built for Carlos Santana, Peter Frampton and Howard Leese from the late 70s to the mid 80s.
