The P22 is the company’s original piezo-equipped solidbody guitar, providing musicians the versatility of wielding both acoustic and electric guitar tones in one instrument. PRS and LR Baggs partnered more than a decade ago to design the piezo system found in PRS’s original hollowbody models. The new system retains the same circuit design as the original, maintaining tonal authenticity and real world practicality. There are two output jacks on the P22, allowing guitarists to plug into their favorite electric guitar or acoustic guitar amp or DI into a soundboard. By utilizing the separate blend control, the tone of the P22’s 57/08 pickups can also be combined with acoustic sounds through a single output.
The P22 comes standard with a figured maple top, mahogany back, mahogany neck with a 22 fret rosewood fingerboard, and a redesigned PRS/LR Baggs piezo system. Uncovered 57/08 pickups round out this guitar’s specifications and help define the P22’s voice.

“The finish is flawless, the setup is totally spot-on, it arrived perfectly in tune, and the flame maple top is as good as I’ve ever seen. The guitar is lightweight and comfortable to play and has a delicious, ringing acoustic quality when strummed unplugged. In other words, it’s a PRS.” (Review PDF)
