A marriage of the finest luthier's artistry with nature's most opulent materials.
The visual focus of this lavish U.S.-made instrument is a gorgeously figured flamed maple ten-top complemented by a host of deluxe appointments that combine for stunning visual appeal. The Custom PRS guitar has a 24-fret mahogany neck with a wide/thin carve, 10" radius, and a rosewood fretboard with abalone bird inlays while the headstock matches back and front. Electronics include an HFS bridge and Vintage Bass neck pickup with 5-way rotary pickup selector plus volume and tone knobs. Hardware on the Custom 24 Ten-Top guitar includes a PRS tremolo and 14:1 low-mass locking tuners.
5-Position Rotary Pickup Selector
This PRS feature allows great tonal versatility using two PRS humbucking pickups. The switch combines the coils of each pickup to produce all of the "PRS tones".
Rotary Positions (numbers on the control knob):
¢ Position 10: Treble pickup - powerful with plenty of definition - traditional humbucker tone
¢ Position 9: Outside coils in parallel - deep and clear sound
¢ Position 8: Series single-coils - warm version of in-between the treble and middle pickups.
¢ Position 7: Parallel single-coils - crisp version of in-between the treble and middle pickups
¢ Position 6: Bass pickup - warm with tons of character - traditional humbucker tone

I've owned my PRS custom 24 for 3 weeks now. I absolutely love this guitar. I am hard pressed to find a tone I can't dial in. The only gripe I have is with the 5-way rotary switch. If I can find a pro able to do the work I'll have the McCarty electronics put in with the 3 way toggle switch and coil tap. Even so, I literaly find myself going through a playing old songs I haven't touched in years just to hear them off of this great instrument.
I bought my PRS in 93 and love it even more now in 2006 then I did in 93. The only reason I would not give this guitar 10's across the board is the 5 way switch and pickups suck. I had Dimarzio evos installed and wired like a Les Paul with a 3 way switch. This baby screams when I want it to and sounds warm and sweet when I want it to.
where to start? the guitar is flawless. i've been playing for a while now and i've never played anything like it. it's a beautiful guitar and it sounds even better than it looks. i changed the pickups to the dragon II's, which are commonly on the custom 22, but either way the guitar's amazing.
Action was high, Soon fixed with a general service. Excellent tone. Excellent guitar!!
I have owned the PRS Custom 24 (w/tremelo) for about three years and it is definitely one of the highest quality guitars I have ever played. I own 7 high end guitars and this is truly some of the best workmanship I have ever seen on a guitar. When you play a chord you can hear EVERY note, and it sustains forever. The tone of this guitar is absolutely fabulous! I was amazed at the big fat sound I got from such a thin guitar. The tremelo is great and stays in tune. The flamed maple top and the Brazilian rosewood are stunning. This guitar is high quality in every detail.
PRS Custom 24, violin amber burst with matching back and sides. This guitar screams greatness at every angle. The design, the craftsmanship, the sound are all unparallel to any Gibson I've ever played and the PRS models are easy worth the extra hundred bucks. There is so little plastic on this guitar, it is almost entirely wood, giving it a classic, elegant look and sound that you will enjoy and want to stare at so much longer than a Les Paul.
Simply the finest solid body guitar you can buy that dosn't come out of a custom shop. Best tone, best looks. I've played them all, high end Pauls, Strats, Teles, if you can afford it, BUY IT! you won't regret it.
I used to wonder why someone would pay so much money for a guitar until I played one. Amazing instruments. I'd recommend this guitar without hesitation. I love and own many USA made guitars: Gibson, Jackson, Charvel, Fender. My 2 PRS guitars are my favorites - simple and elegant. Save up your money and get one, it's worth it.
I have been saving for this guitar for about 2 years now, however I was fortunate enough to receive an orange one as a Christmas present in 2004. I own 9 other guitars including a Gibson Les Paul and a Custom Shop Fender Strat. None of them come close to the standard of excellence of this guitar. The wide-thin neck plays faster than any other guitar I?ve ever tried. The Vintage bass pickup in the neck sounds dose awesome, but I can?t get over how incredible the HFS in the bridge sounds. My Les Paul is equipped with an EMG in the bridge and sounds rather "snotty" in comparison to the PRS. Not that that?s a bad thing, but it doesn?t make a high gain amp?s sound explode like the PRS does. Also, the #9 position on the rotary sounds brilliant with the acoustic sinth on my Marshall. The trem is very precise and actually floats up as well as down to sum extent. It?s not as extreme as a Floyd Rose is, but it gets the job done. I was also astonished at how long the guitar stays in tune even with extreme trem use. This guitar is also very light and thin compared to other guitars in the same price range. Finally, the 10 top finish is gorgeous, especially with the bird inlays. This may be a very pricey guitar, but it?s worth every penny.
I bought mine about 8 years ago, waited approx. 4 mos. Got it home, fell in love with the look, silky smooth finish, outstanding package..I didn't love the sound, or the rotory for pickup selection though. The pickups to me are sorta Jap sounding and the setup was lacking. Went back to my ol Ibanez Steve Lukather roadstar 2 for a while (birdseye maple top, mahogany, maple neck etc). It wasn't worth the trip or price though, in my eyes.. (had to drive from columbus to toledo to pick it up back then).Maybe they have improved, but I hadnt heard or seen much difference since they went mainstream. My fav guitar is my Gibson Explorer. This thing is just awesome. I also love my Les Paul, though nowadays it's kinda a acquired taste. I play only through good tube amps, and miss my broken Ibanez Tube King for distortion. Nobodys come out with that mello, tube distortion for a clean amp. Mines been busted a while. It is pretty though, and if looks are what your after....You cant beat it.
