    Hi.

    I just bought this '14 P22. Can't find the name of this colour and wondered if anybody knows?

    Thanks in advance.

    That's a beautiful P22! I'm not sure about the color name, Natural or Antique Natural would be my guess. I have a 2013 P22 and it's one of my favorites.

    Thanks Tom. Appreciate that. I did a fair bit of Googling but couldn't see anything comparable.

    There should be a MODCAT code under the neck? pickup - if it was a normally offered color, the MODCAT decoder would tell you. You could also email the S/N to PRS customer service.
    If it was a wood library or other special run, like mine is, the MODCAT doesn't help.

    Kinda looks like a Trampas Green to me with perhaps a bit of fading.

    I’m thinking along a similar wavelength, that what ever stain was used, the blue dye has faded out of it.

    It’s stunning what ever it is and I bet it screams! Congratulations.

    “Lovely plumage!”

    Not only that, but by removing the pickup (it's quite easy, just undo those 4 black screws in the pickup ring--leave the 2 silver ones alone) you'll also likely get a peek at the original un-faded color still existing under those rings.

    I would agree with Bill tough, too--it appears to be some sort of faded autumn-something.

    Thanks for all the replies guys. I'll pop the pickup out next string change and take a look.

    Appreciate your help and comments. Thank you.
