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!
