    Comments about PRS SE Custom 24 Creme Binding Electric Guitar:

    I have been playing for over 20 years, primarily with a Fender Deluxe Strat, and an Ibanez semi-hollow. I recently went into a music store and plugged in a PRS SE Custom 24 and was in awe at how fabulous it sounded. It had more bite than my strat yet could still get the jazzy tones I get through my semi-hollow. A couple months after playing it (also knowing that a PRS would be my next guitar), I saw this one for sale on Musician's Friend and couldn't pass it up. Aesthetics are beautiful and this things plays incredible. I play a lot of jam band/improvisation lead guitar and the tones that this thing gets are just impressive. My ONLY complaint is that the new pickup switch knob (where you can raise the tonal knob for a pickup switch), makes the tonal lob VERY sensitive, almost to the point where it seems loose. But hasn't been a huge issue thus far.

    Amazing guitar!! Neck was a little off due to shipping but plays and sounds like no other! Aggressive rock tones and sweet bluesy tones with the coil splitter! Cream binding and craftsmanship are perfect. Love love love this guitar!

        There are a lot nicer PRS as far as looks. This one definitely has a good sound and play-ability. The top is flame just not book matched. I watched a few videos on youtube comparing this one and other Korean made Custom 24 to their American Made cousins and it seems to be that the only difference maybe looks.

            Comments about PRS SE Custom 24 Creme Binding Electric Guitar:

            This is a spectacular guitar. For me this is one of those guitars from the first note played it just spoke to me. Usually it takes a much higher end instrument to catch my ear. But this is one of those hidden gems. I couldn't pass it up. I just happen to pick it up to try out an amp and was instantly hooked on the guitar, the amp was OK but the this guitar took things over the top. The gold color is not gawdy and looks more like a vintage instrument than something designed to be flashy. The pickups are great and the coil tapping just adds icing to the deal. My Buddy who tends to prefer higher end guitars was so impressed he purchased a similar PRS model. He also is more than impressed with his purchase.

              Comments about PRS SE Custom 24 Creme Binding Electric Guitar:

              Ok. I bought this on a whim. Totally loved the looks of the cherry sunburst. Out of the box the truss rod needed adjusting( very simple to do as PRS give explicit directions). The tone of this guitar is kind of amazing considering the price point. I kept picking it up trying to find a reason not to keep it but it just kept me playing. The FRS treble pick up it a screamer, only found on the more expensive core models. Cream binding is a nice touch and ads to the overall cosmetic of a much more costly guitar. It plays like butter. Very fast action once you get it adjusted to your liking. The tuners are not the best but I have a set of Grover locking tuners that fit. If you think this is a run of the mill PRS SE you would be wrong. This is definitely a step up in sound and looks. I wanted to buy a core PRS but the price point made me give this a try. Its a keeper. I'm impressed and that's not easy to do.

                  Comments about PRS SE Custom 24 Creme Binding Electric Guitar:

                  Been playing strats over 30 years, but always wanted a set neck and 2 humbuckers that split. Also wanted to see if all the PRS hype was for real...and, if this guitar is representative, PRS is all that,,,even in their SE line. Caught it at a blow-out price, and I am thoroughly impressed from all aspects...from build quality to pickups and play-ability, there is no better "bang for your buck" deal I can find...and by the way, they picked the uglyist example for the advertising picture.....the one I got is a much better looking instrument grain-wise, and the "burst" is much more attractive.

                    Comments about PRS SE Custom 24 Creme Binding Electric Guitar:

                    Fit and Finish was amazing right out of the box. Intonation was great with only the low E string needing a slight adjustment. Tremelo setup was right on. The guitar itself is light with great access to all 24 frets. I compare it to my JS1000. The PRS is a little brighter with the tone all the way up. The split coil option is a good option although I havn't used it much. Guitars are very personal to a player and I played this series at a local Guitar Center in Houston. I thought this guitar actually played better the more expensive models.
