My CE 22 is a 2007 built one in Matteo Blue, with a wide fat neck! What makes this guitar really standing out for higher gain rock stuff are the Dragon IIs. I like their voicing that much that I exchanged the Vintage Base/HFS combi in my PRS Std24 with another pair of Dragon IIs. They are still high output, but with a more classic, throaty voice than esp. the HFS is providing. I'd prefer Dragon IIs (not Dragon Is) also over Gibsons Burstbuckers for bite and dynamic.
