Thoughts on PRS Standard 22 Satin series? Also what are the CE models?

Hey all

Does anyone have any experience with the PRS Standard 22 Satin series guitar? The one I'm looking at is all black in original hardcase, a friend of mine is looking to trade it for something else.

Also, what are the PRS CE guitars? I have seen a few of them but can't seem to find any information on them.

Thanks

The Standards are nice, basically the same as the custom 22/24 but with a solid mahogany body. The pickups and electronic are the same as the customs.

The CE (*classic electric) was the cheapest USA PRS when it was around. These are also Identical in spec to the custom 22/24, but they have a bolt-thru maple neck. these are almost always moon inlays, but there are a few that I have seen with birds

Both series guitars are very nice

I can't speak to the Standard 22, but the CE series was PRS's low end USA made line back in the 2000's. Same specs as the Custom but with a both-thru neck. The CE kicks ass! If you can find one used under $1000, buy it. I got mine for $900.

It's been said many times... PRS did not make a bad CE!

And the DO come with birds... you just have to be lucky.

Yep, but birds on a CE are super rare (PRS states there were never any CE's made with birds) and many are actually the Swamp Ash special that are mistaken for the CE

FYI: I've checked the MODCAT numbers and called PRS with the serial numbers to verify.
It's definitely a CE with birds. and it's mine! Mwahahahaha!
