1994 Paul Reed Smith Custom 22 Stoptail 10 Top Black Cherry w/ Wide Thin Neck, Case


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1994 Paul Reed Smith Custom 22 “10 Top” in exceptional condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case. This PRS features a deeply figured bookmatched flame maple 10 Top with a Black Cherry gloss finish, Dragon 1 humbuckers, Wide-Thin neck profile, and locking Schaller tuners.

The Dragon 1 pickups were engineered to cover a broad tonal spectrum, delivering quintessential PRS top end sweetness and occupying a happy middle ground between the distinctly vintage-flavored McCarty and the ultra-modern HFS humbuckers. The five-way rotary pickup selector knob offers both single coil and humbucker functionality, wired as follows:

Position 1: Humbucking treble (bridge) pickup
Position 2: Outside coils of both pickups in parallel
Position 3: Series single coils
Position 4: Parallel single coils
Position 5: Humbucking bass (neck) pickup

The Black Cherry gloss finish highlights the tight, straight figuring in the bookmatched tiger maple 10 Top, and cosmetic wear is limited to light buckle rash central to the back, a few pinhead-sized dings on the lower bot on top, and a few faint finish scratches in the clear coat of the gloss on the body as a whole. The neck profile retains its smooth gloss.

The original black tolex hardshell case is included.
