    Since I've really been impressed by my S2 Custom 22's, I decided to look for a core model. My favorite shop, still had over half a dozen on hand. So, I sat down and compared them. This is the one (2019 model), that I choose. And my collection grows. I still can't believe that they discontinued the Custom 22's.

    They had one in the same color, with a prettier top, but it was half a pound heavier. They also had higher grade wood (and more expensive) models. I liked a Blue Wrap, 10 top, but it didn't play as well as the lower priced Customs. It might have been better with a neck adjustment. But, it also had a mixture of Nickle, Brass and Gold hardware. I kind of like the plain looking guitars. If you can call any PRS, plain looking.

    I realize that I've got the better version of the 85/15 pickups in the core model, compared to my S2 CU 22's. But the 5-way switch, with a normal, non-push/pull tone Pot, is the best sounding arrangement. I did manage to get 3 Custom 22's, that play the same, and each has it's own sound.

    That's awesome, our local dealer usually only has a couple core models in hand but not multiples of one model, that would be a great time to go down and pick the one that speaks to you most. Congrats man that's awesome!
