    So many people concerned with my hygiene. :eek: Should have thought of that before they let me rub all over their guitars. :D Playing my Boogie is certainly a dirty experience.

    Dirty_Boogie here... no relation to the original Boogie. Don't own a Boogie, but when I boogie, I like to do the dirty boogie...

    Some stuff, suffice it to say, just don't wash off.

    Huh. I thought the camo would just blend in...

    Yeah, it blends in alright...with trees, bushes, and mud.

    Or any colors associated with trees, bushes, and mud.

    I just noticed that GPS lives in Indianapolis. That’s a stone’s throw from me, literally.

    I like Boogies whether they’re dirty or not, so you’re both great in my book!

    That pot looks cross threaded. That's not OK.

    I had a camo SE, had trouble getting the tones I wanted out of it, did better with other early SEs. I wanted it to work. I have two seasons, hunting and guitar. The crossover was nice...

    Well if anyone is interested in an update. PRS sent me a shipping label to return my CU22. The shop I bought it through is going to refund me.

    I’m also buying a B-Stock 2017 Korean model that has the hardtail, toggle switch, and is the same grey black color. I’m really excited to get this taken care of.

    The shop and PRS have been great to work with. This guitar was an unfortunate experience, but I’m not holding it against PRS or the shop.

    I’ll post pics once the new CU22 Semi Hollow arrives!

    My son has a Korean semi hardtail CU22 in the Orangish flame and it is a great guitar.

    The transparent orange looks pretty cool from the pics I’ve seen.

    Well I received my 2017 Custom 22 Semi Hollow the other day. I did not have an opportunity to play it until last night. It needs a slight change in setup, but that is to be expected. It is perfect. I couldn't be happier. The quality is outstanding as I expected. The Indonesian 2018 didn’t hold a candle to this guitar. She looks and plays beautifully. Here are some pics!

    It is also interesting to see the color differences in the gig bags over the years. 2005 on the left and 2017 on the right.

    Return it. No excuse for any of those problems.
