    I just dropped payment on this 2001 CU22. All stock except the truss rod cover. 10 top. "Excellent" condition. The deal was too good. I could have paid more for an S2 after negotiations were all done. This will officially be the least expensive PRS I have ever owned. That should take care of my hesitation to play my PRS due to price or collectability. Same neck carve, and pups as my Limited Run Brazilian so it "should" feel and sound similar. It does have that rotary switching that the early ones did......so who knows, I may end up being that "MOD" guy who has my luthier switch that out to the toggle with taps....we will have to see down the line. But at the price I am getting it for, I will easily play it as is. I will certainly let you all know when she comes in.

    More like I wasn't supposed to be dropping "core" money right now. The problem is that I don't think it would have sat long at the price that it was. And even better after a little negotiation. I HAD to pull the trigger or I would have regretted it. But I "shouldn't" have. ..... *sigh*

    Yep. All of mine but one have been . Even though I have little hands, the wide fat was the first I had.....so it seems to be the feel that I got used to on a PRS.

    I had an Artist package CU22 quilt in that color and year (first or second guitar I bought from Jack Gretz) and yours might be even nicer!

    Just beautiful, and I love the Dark Cherry Burst finish from that era.

    You rock, sir!

    Now I miss mine. :(

    Fun fact: Carl Sagan really wanted to study cosmetology but a spelling error on his college application changed our world forever.
