      Comments about PRS SE Custom 24 Electric Guitar:

      First, I got this "Used Condition 2" and it looked like perfect condition and had a good set-up. The padded case was included with the grey black. If it's not included, buy one. They're nice.

      I've never played an American Custom 24 but the SE sure doesn't suffer for being the cheaper version. The only issue is the tuners seem not as tight compared to my Tele/Les Paul for example and when I switch between 1/2 step down and standard I have to retune it a few times. But then it stays in tune while I'm playing.

      Anyway, it's awesome. The wide thin neck is incredibly comfortable and fast to play on and it sounds intense.

          I am privilege to have a Fender, Ibanez, Gibson and some other ones, but this guitar is the missing link. The diversity of tone is incredible. I have a bunch of videos on youtube that you can see and hear for yourself.
          It is a wonderful, professional instrument...

            I bought it used, condition 2. When I opened the box it was nearly brand new! Not even a fingerprint on it. Set up beautifully already!
            thanks MF!

                This instrument jumped out of the box into my hands ready to play. Intonation is set perfectly. I was was bending Blues immediately, on both sides of the Double Dots, accurate and precise tuning. Impressive Les Paul Humbucker and Stratocaster Single tones. A sweet player, it sticks to my hands.

                Comments about PRS SE Custom 24 Electric Guitar:

                LOOKS:
                I was saving up for the Tobacco Sunburst, then the Grey Black w/ Bag went on sale, so I snagged it instead. The flame veneer, not solid flame top, looks BEAUTIFUL, despite it being the cheaper model. The rosewood fretboard has some streaking in it, which I actually don't notice and when I do it looks fantastic. Overall, glad with the look.

                FEEL:
                This has PRS' Wide Thin neck, which is akin to an ESP LTD, which I had earlier. Frets are cut smoothly, the length feels natural. Sadly the neck is glossed, which I don't enjoy, but oh well: the thinness helps you forget. As for the body, the top has a slight arch to it, nothing like the beveled tops the American versions have. Other than that, it fits my form fine, standing or sitting, and it's great to have on your lap for a while.

                TONE:
                Acoustically it sounds much louder than I had anticipated, which was great. Plugged in, it sounds FANTASTIC, very well worth it. Floating tremolo stays almost perfectly in tune, and when it goes the tiniest bit out you can pull back and it goes back exactly. Coil-tapping sounds great, though the volume loss was something i wasn't expecting. The sustain when bending the strings is sadly lacking, only two seconds at maximum with distortion. Overall, great, and much better than my last guitar, but not as uber-fantastic as I had heard about

                  Quality guitar, great features,... the neck contour is perfect. Coil tap is nice, will not sound like a strat because of neck scale, can get a nice P90 sound. Trem is flawless. Guitar has Tons of sustain. also own les Paul deluxe and mexicaster, this will be my guitar for gigs

                    Have played Guitar 36 years .I've played hundreds of guitars,this one plays and sounds nearly as good as the best I have played.Little things,It's set up for 9's nuts a bit tight.Had to balance the pickups to my style.It's true the Guitar is set up well out of the box.pups are just a bit quieter than the American made one.and cosmetics are the only cost savings I have noticed.Great Guitar for the cost.
