    Updated with new neck, new finish, and improved electronics.

    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 has been updated for 2011 with V12 finish, a Pattern Regular mahogany neck, and uncovered 59/09 pickups wired for the redesigned 5-way blade switch, which offers a dual humbucker option for the first time.

    V12 Finish
    Finish should enhance the look, sound, and feel of a guitar by accentuating the wood's inherent beauty and feel without hindering its natural resonance. And PRS Guitars' new "V12" finish does just that. Introduced at Experience PRS 2010, "V12" is a very thin, hard, and clear finish that will not crack or react with thinners. After roughly 12 years in development, it is halfway between acrylic and nitro but with a classic feel all its own. "PRS models with this new finish feel like old instruments," said Paul Reed Smith.

    Pattern Regular Shape
    Neck shapes have always been a high priority for PRS and a hallmark of PRS quality. A guitar should feel comfortable, like "home," as soon as you pick it up, and the neck is paramount to that connection. The new "Pattern Regular" neck shape is similar to the traditional PRS regular neck found on guitars made in the late 80's at PRS's former Virginia Avenue location.

    This new neck shape reflects modern tooling and programming that allows PRS to even more preciously shape and consistently reproduce their necks. Includes case.

      Comments about PRS Custom 24 Flame Top Electric Guitar:

      I usually play a Strat. I am still in the process of getting used to, and tweeking this guitar (very responsive), but it is clearly now my first guitar. It has a very strong output, and is thoughtfully made. It is drawing me into the next level of play.

        Comments about PRS Custom 24 Flame Top Electric Guitar:

        It's a work of art, both to look at and to play. It's got the trademark PRS tone and the quality of the manufacturing couldn't be better. The new pickups are incredible, pulling a rich, buttery tone out that I can't replicate with other guitars.
