    S2 Standard

    I’ve seen a lot of polarized opinions on here…not trying to be a snob, but also not trying to start a holy war. I’ve only ever owned “core.” Pre-2000 Customs, CEs, a few 01 Singlecuts, even an old Starla. My current lineup in a 97 CE22, an 04 CE22, and an 02 Swamp Ash Special. I am eyeballing...

    How unusual is my black top Custom 22 w/ McCarty-style electronics?

    Hi folks, newbie here! I have a Custom 22 that I bought new back in 2001. It's got a maple cap, but an opaque black top (and back and sides). The sales receipt sales "custom 22" but if I remember correctly the hang tag said "standard 22". It also has McCarty-style electronics (three-way...

    Would you like to bounce with the brother that's platinum?

    For as long as I've been a PRS fanboy, I've always been enamored by the Platinum Metallic opaque finish. And all the better to put this finish on a Standard 22, in which there's less reason to show off some sort of figured wood, right? Well, I now have my grubby little hands on one of these...

    Standard 22 Re-finished?

    Hey everyone. Was just after some guidance as I've been looking at this 2nd hand 2002 Standard 22 - the guy says that he thinks it could have been sanded down from a platinum sparkle due to the silver paint in the control cavities, but he's not sure. This may be a make or break for me, if it's...
