OVERVIEW

A revamped classic with advanced wiring and a gorgeous finish.

The Custom 24 is the original PRS…the guitar Paul Reed Smith took to his first tradeshow in 1985. A perennial favorite with musicians, this model features a Pattern Thin mahogany neck and 57/08 pickups wired for a redesigned 5-way blade switch, which offers a dual humbucker option for the first time (see switching positions below).

HFS treble and Vintage bass pickups were first offered in the 1990s and helped to define the sound of the time by providing a balance of aggressive, musical, clear highs and strong midrange and bass. In 2008, PRS introduced 57/08 pickups, which were designed to capture a vintage ‘50s humbucking tone. Includes case.

Pickup Switching Positions:
Position One: Bridge humbucker
Position Two: Bridge humbucker with neck single coil, in parallel
Position Three: Bridge and neck humbuckers
Position Four: Neck singlecoil with bridge single coil, in parallel
Position Five: Neck humbucker

    Comments about PRS Custom 24 Electric Guitar:

    This is one nice guitar. I bought the black gold burst and it is beautiful. Fit and finish was perfect. I did adjust the truss rod and bridge to get the action to my preference. I have owned 20+ guitars in my life and this is my favorite. It plays and sounds great. The trem works really good and I love the pop in trem bar. It stays in tune really good due to locking tuners and a well designed bridge . Did I mention that it is beautiful? Under the black gold burst finish, you can see figured grain which gives it character. The abolone birds is the finishing touch. I highly recommend it.

    Comments about PRS Custom 24 Electric Guitar:

    I've done biz w/ MF for 30+ years. I trust them. I bought guitars from them before. I picked up a PRS Custom 24 at a bargain price.... This is now my fave guitar. Mine is SHOCK BLACK, and is the most beautiful thing you have ever seen. It has taken first place over my Les Paul's, Tele, Strat, & Epi.... Boys, you can't get a better guitar.
    This thing will blow all your other guitars a way !
