Here’s a very, very rare piece of PRS history. The Custom 22 was first introduced in 1993, making this 1994 example a very early one for the model. What makes is exceptionally rare is the now-iconic Bonni Pink finish, which is made even more exclusive by the optiona PRS “birds” inlays and gold hardware.
THE “BONNI PINK” STORY
Early Paul Reed Smith Bonni Pink guitars are some of the most collectible guitars on the market today. The color was named after longtime Paul Smith friend and associate, Bonni Lloyd. If you work for PRS for a length of time you can have a guitar built to your own specifications.
Bonni asked that her guitar be painted to match her Chuck Taylor Converse tennis shoes, which were Pepto Bismol pink. A pink color was finally derived that matched her shoes and was eventually applied to PRS models ranging from the CE to the Signature as a custom option. It was, at the time, not the most popular finish colour option, and therefore 90’s Bonni Pink PRS guitars are exceptionally rare and collectible today.
