Very good condition with no visible scratches or dents. Price is $1500.. No Birds
What do you think?
$1,500 is a great deal for a Custom in nice shape. If you're in the market, go for it. I can tell it's an 'older' one by the rotary - probably VB/HFS pickups too, if I had to guess.
I usually expect to see well taken care of Customs in the $1,800-$2,000 range. Older model, rotary, moons, and maybe electronics could drop the price a little bit, but $1,500 is a good price on a Custom 22 any way you look at it.
For an older non-10 top with dots that price seems about right.
Yep, the price is right for it's condition.
That’s the right price - I was looking a few months ago and most seemed to be 1600-1800 depending on condition and top. There were a few lower but they were the really beat up ones.
I was going to try and get out there to check that one out lol. Hope you ended up with it.
That's not a CE22?
Look at the headstock in the pic in the OP. It’s mahogany. If it were a CE it would have a black laminate over the face of the headstock (or possibly be maple).
Ah, good catch. I didn't look at the headstock. I always think of customs as having the birds, but don't know much about PRS even after having owned a couple of 'em. Great guitars.
I prefer them without the birds.
Yup, long time Les Paul player but I got a CU24 a couple of years ago that I can’t stop playing. Great guitars for sure!
I was watching a triple p-90 CU22 on the bay a couple days ago.
Meant to try to snipe it, but forgot about it.
Sold for 1600 which was an awesome deal for a 3 P90.
$1500 out the door would be good.
Nice deal, and that's a great PRS color which generally looks even better in person.
That is a great price for that. There are many different variations of this guitar, woods, pups, tops etc etc etc. But that is a god price and a great guitar.
Nice. Its gonna have Dragon pickups. 1s or 2s depends on the year. I got a 07 a couple weeks ago with D2s for about the same price. It’s definitely worth $1500
I have to disagree with the consensus. I buy and sell many guitars per year.
A CU22, dots, non-10......even mint condition would be about 1250-1350. The last one I bought in October, 2017, I paid 1300 for it WITH birds in mint condition.
1500 is a bit too much for that guitar. If it were an older CU22, then it would bring more money.
In fact, my very good friend and TGPer, passed on a 1998 CU22, birds, non-10, Dragon I pickups, at $1200 last week. It was 100% mint condition. It was Whale Blue with very, very strong flame. Thought it was a 10, but it was not. It was advertised on Reverb at 1399.00. The seller offered to sell it to my friend for $1200.
There is a tremendous difference between asking price and sold price - and even more so in the used market.
I've noticed that hardtails seem to go for less. Trem model is worth the $1500.
