What we say:
The Custom 24 is the quintessential PRS electric guitar. A carved, double cutaway body with a set neck and a pair of humbuckers help to define this game-changing instrument. This is the current incarnation of the guitar Paul originally marketed in the mid 80s. Taking the best features from the world’s biggest guitar models and shaping them into something unique, he brought a new sound to the table: a singing, sustaining song with a degree of clarity not heard on humbucker/mahogany guitars and a thick chunk not present on single-coil/bolted neck guitars. In short, he created a beautiful hybrid that allowed guitarists to have it all and stake out their individuality at the same time. The Custom 24 is without a doubt a modern classic.
Today’s iteration has the attractive figured maple top, the Bird inlays, the fantastically functional tremolo and the humbucker/split coil options but a few things have changed, too. Gone is the rotary selector in favour of a five-way blade; the Wide Thin/Regular/Wide Fat neck profiles have been reassessed and updated to become the Pattern, Pattern Thin and Pattern Regular profiles and finally the pickups themselves are PRS’s best yet: the 85/15 humbuckers are wound on older machines with older wire to capture the original, thrilling mid 80s PRS sound that starting the whole ball rolling! For such a forward-thinking company, it befits them to note that the current Custom 24’s are the best ever.
Each and every USA made PRS guitar we sell has been personally viewed and selected by us in person: we see them before we buy them and often have first pick from all models coming into the UK: this means we can choose from the very best examples to bring you a range of particularly special instruments.
This Custom 24 has a Pattern Thin neck and is finished in Charcoalburst. The result is spectacular, to hear, to feel, to see and to play.
