Iconic Custom 24 Design

The Custom 24 has been a staple of the PRS range of guitars and has found its way into the hands of countless professional musicians in all sorts of genres. The 2018 Custom 24 continues this legacy and delivers PRS's effortless playability, good-looks, and versatile range of tones. It is constructed with the notorious attention to detail that PRS are known for, and gives you a high performing 24 fret instrument that can be a true workhorse guitar. The SE Floyd model provides you with the Floyd Rose 1000 tremolo system so you can perform pitch effects from mild tremolo through to extreme dive-bombs, safe in the knowledge that your guitar will accurately return to pitch.

Quality Tonewoods

The 2018 SE Custom 24 is crafted from resonant and warm-sounding mahogany with a maple top for added bright overtones and harmonic sparkle. This classic combination is coupled with a maple neck and smooth rosewood fingerboard, providing the mid-focus and resonant tonal basis for this guitar.

PRS Playability

The Custom 24 range is designed to bring the best of classic guitar designs in a 'half-way' instrument that has its own distinct voice. A 25'' scale length is the ideal compromise for easy string bends but still provides the correct string tension for long sustain and thick tones. The double cutaway asymmetric body and low-profile set-neck joint provide easy access to all 24 frets, with the lower horn featuring a bevelled cut to further assist your left hand. Medium frets are smoothly finished and the whole guitar sits comfortably in your hands, providing an effortless playing experience across the whole fingerboard. The inclusion of 24 frets would usually have connotations of a rock/metal inspired 'shred' guitar, but here you can have all the playability of a 24-fret instrument with the great looks of a classic guitar alongside a versatile yet distinct tonal voice.

Electronic Versatility

PRS brought the 85/15 "S" pickups to the SE range in 2017 and ever since they have been delivering a versatile performance. With a 3-way switch they can access powerful bridge tones and mellow flute-like sounds, to cover all bases from clean sounds through to overdriven aggression or biting lead sounds. They are very responsive to player dynamics and volume/tone control adjustments and will provide a great clarity when performing high-gain music genres. The tone control acts as a push/pull switch to access coil-tapping for single-coil sounds. These features make the PRS SE Custom 24 a versatile instrument with an ability to flick effortlessly between genres; it could be a session player's ideal one-guitar setup.

PRS Build Quality

Anyone who has heard Paul Reed Smith talk about guitars knows that he is fastidious in his research and development and his continual drive to improve his guitar designs. The PRS SE Custom 24 is a true reflection of that, and the SE range has continued to evolve beyond it's initial design brief of being a "Student Edition" instrument. Pro-level machine-heads and bridges along with solid tonewoods and high quality construction methods help to deliver accurate tuning and intonation with a fantastic playing experience. This is a true professional performer that can span the genres and deliver stunning tones and playability night after night.
