    A perfectly balanced, visually stunning, sonically overwhelming work of art!

    The PRS Custom 24 Electric Guitar is based on the original classic PRS guitars. The perfect combination of woods — maple top, mahogany back and neck, plus rosewood fretboard — meets the perfect electronics — HFS bridge and Vintage Bass neck pickups. Super-tight neck joint adds sustain and quality feel. 10" radius fretboard on a wide, thin neck grants very speedy freedom on the 24 fat frets. 5-way rotary pickup selector delivers precision tonal options. All crafted by master luthiers. You can't lose. Includes hardshell case.

    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

    Features

    • Carved maple top
    • Contoured mahogany back
    • Wide, thin mahogany neck
    • 10" radius rosewood 24-fret fretboard
    • Pearl and abalone inlays
    • HFS bridge humbucker
    • Vintage Bass neck humbucker
    • 5-way pickup selector
    • Wood top binding

    A fabulous professional's axe from one of the world's most respected luthiers at a price you won't beat anywhere. What's to think about? Order now.

    First I must say it plays and sounds awesome! Since I had an older Custom 24 that had the regular neck with a translucent amber finish, I wanted a PRS with a wide thin neck. Don't understand why this one is called thin because when I pick up my Jacksons it makes them feel extra thin but, that is ok. My first Custom 24 was perfect/no flaws and didn't have to make any adjustments. This one has a few scatches in the paint on the back that go through to the body. The strings were no where near as low as my first. I was able to lower them all one full turn without getting any fret buzz anywhere. Could possibly go lower but, will probably leave them where they are now. Lowering did not appear to have changed the intonation as I did check but, I will be double checking after another string change. The nylon looking wrap around the pickups have fuzz that is sticking all the way out to the strings so I will have to trim that stuff back. I own 3 Jacksons, a Gibson Les Paul DC Plus, a Parker Fly Deluxe vibrato, a Burns Red Special and a Kramer. The PRS is my favorite as I use it the most. It is definitely hard to put it down.

    I can sum up this guitar in two words - over priced. I bought one a couple months ago and later sold it after about 2 months. Sure, its nice looking and has most of the features you'd want in a guitar, but the sound just wasnt there for me. Don't get me wrong, its a nice guitar. It plays nice and has a great trem system. But it just didnt do it for me. It sounded too much like a machine and not a guitar. But maybe that was just me. Anyway, save your money.

    Awesome custom 24

    By thatoneguy

    from knoxville, TN

    I love Paul reed Smith custom 24s i have played many guitars trying to find the sound i want i have gone from gibson,fender,schecter, esp, ibenez, the list goes on and prs is one of my favorites if not my favorite. the only problem i had with the stock ones are the pickups and this is only because i play rock i replaced them with seymour duncan sh6 pickups and it was great for my tone.

    Best Guitar Ever

    OMG!!! After years of searching I have finally found THE perfect axe. This thing growls when you're rocken' and sings when you're clean. It's the best of both worlds. I own over 10 guitars and the two PRSs I own are by far the best. Very spendy but worth every penny.

    The highest quality guitar in production today...

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    the prs custom 24 is undoubtedly one of if not the best electric guitars you can buy. sure, they are a little pricey, but they are worth every cent. The hfs pick-up is incredible, as is the ryhthm pickup. Part of what makes the prs custom 24 so great is the variety of tones you can get out of it. people are always comparing prs to gibson les pauls and fender strats, but prs is way ahead. the fretboard is lightning fast, and the frets are nice and wide. access to the upper frets is amazing as well. paul reed smith really knew what he was doing when he designed these beauties.

    I own a PRS from 1985, first year of production, but still hand made, Serial# 0179. It's a 24 fret standard,dot inlay in a dark blue metallic finish. I've burned thru three(3) sets of pick-ups and three cases since new. This wonderful instrument has allowed me to be the best player I could be, and then some. If u can afford a PRS, BUY ONE NOW. They just get more expensive as time goes by. If I had all the words to describe the feeling one gets from performing with this guitar, I would still fall short of accolades. Some say the rotary p/up selector is a pain, but like everything else you gotta put some neck time into it to get all the goodness from this instrument. It was designed for guitar players, (Les Paul users, & Fender users alike) by a guitar player. BUY IT, U WON'T REGRET IT. Rick

    Class all the way

    By PaoloNYC

    from New York City

    There are many things to appreciate with this fine guitar, but to me the most astounding is its' pure tactile appeal - it is simply fabulous to hold and play. Weight & balance are perfect, body contours superbly comfortable, and the neck finish is akin to a Steinway piano. It is not cheap to buy, but then it feels like it should cost even more than it does. Yes, the 5-way rotary p/u switch is not quite an convenient as a toggle, but only if you need to keep switching mid-song (visually I happen to like the clean lines no toggle brings). The sounds it creates are as varied and satisfying as 90% of rock musicians will ever require. Having 24 frets is a fun, modern touch and in wide/thin configuration the neck is a joy to play. This one is a definite keeper!

    40 and still Jammin

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    In my 25 or so years of playing guitar, I have owned or played just about every guitar available, Including the obvious Strats and Les Pauls , in every configuration (Pickups, tremolo, etc...) . Although these guitars were sought after during the "British Invation" (I'm really showing my age now), the quality of these instruments are not what they once were. Although Paul Reed Smith has become a much bigger company since it went into full production in 1980, they still pay much greater attention to detail and quality than the other big two. Do Yourself a favor and at least play a P.R S.

    Last Guitar

    By Slick Willie

    SIMPLY INCREDIBLE!! That all I can say. You can get the drive of a les paul, the clarity of a fender and the best playability out of the box of any guitar you buy!
