    NGD FOR ME! Yes, it IS another custom 22 with 10 top. As some of you may know I ran into a financial situation recently that caused me to sell off a couple of guitars. So, I am rebuilding. This seemed like as good a place to start as any. LOL. I just contacted the PRS service department to have them run the serial number to get me the full specs. This particular guitar did not come with the case candy that would make it easier to just grab the modcat off of the Hang tag. So I'm waiting on an email from them to give me all of the original specs. Very happy with the condition of this instrument. I'll have to spend some time with her tonight plugged into my amplifier to see how she sounds when I get off work. Luckily it's Friday night. Wouldn't want to piss off too many neighbors. LOL! Sorry only cell phone pix and video for now but I am at work at the moment.

    The two things that I usually insist on is a stop bar tail piece and a wide/fat neck profile.

    This girl is a trem with a w/t....lol...

    I have had one with these specs before but I blocked the trem. I think I will play around with this one for a little while with the trem floating freely to see if I can dig it. After about 5 minutes, I didn't even notice the wide/thin neck. The muscle memory came right back from the last one I had like this. At that point it just felt like a PRS......go figure. I am giddy over this fiddle. Can't wait to get it home and really put a couple of hours on it.

    That trem will grow on you. I've noticed that I can go between wide/fat and wide/thin pretty easy now as well. It used to bother me a lot, but now not so much.

    Beautiful new addition, congrats. (Dig the T-shirt too)

    BTW, maybe you can clarify something for me: why do ppl hide the serial # when they post pics?? Is it some kind of scam prevention or something?

    I think there are those who would use said pic to falsely advertise a fake.
    Just guessing though.

    I asked that several months back myself. There were a couple of people who gave possibilities of negative things that could happen if someone got a hold of the serial. So, I just obscured it to be on the safe side.

    I do it to license plates on vehicles or motorcycles too when I get pictures of them
