1999 Purple Holoflake??

Here's the '99 catalog images. Colors and options. The chart doesn't show birds as a standard option for CE22.

Has anyone seen a catalog listing the Holoflake colors?
I have a green one and have seen the blue, red, silver, gold and black.
I just have not seen enough old catalogs to see what colors were listed in color charts.
 
Here are my P22 pups. Notice they are the same numbers as yours, but the letter at the end is different. That makes me think you might have 5310s...



The letter on all my p22 5310 sets end in N.

Not sure what the letter means. I'm thinking prs would be able to use that to identity 5708 or 5310 but to my knowledge they can't.
 
That finish looks legit to me. If it is a refin, someone did a really good job on it. It doesn't have any paint in the pickup cavities.

The neck does seem a little suspect with the birds. I agree on that one.

As for the pickups, I am betting those are 57/08s. Did they ever make 53/10 pickups without covers? The set I have in my P22 are covered. Mine could be outside of the norm though since mine is an experience guitar.

Maybe a PTC refin? I noticed the same: looks like a very clean finish job
 
This was a great Monday morning read - thanks y'all. Definitely bookmarking this post for the catalog (among other things).
Great guitar with I'm sure a great story.

Yeah, it looks well done from the pics.

The missing modcat sticker and caked polishing compound in the bridge cavity is what makes me think it’s a refin (along with having never seen a purple holoflake before).

Why else would that sticker come half off like that if it wasn’t from tape?

The missing sticker is definitely odd and could be an indicator of a refin. I have not seen a purple holoflake either but they have done a lot of one off colors over the years. That color would probably have sold well if they had made it.

Oh absolutely. Over the years I’ve learned to never say never when it comes to old CEs and their options.

I have covered and uncovered 5310s
