The Custom 24 has long been a staple of the PRS range, hailed for its versatility, reliability and of course its stunning yet understated appearance. This addition to our PRS range comes from their Wood Library selection, a stash of premium woods with unique grains that sound as good as they look. Make no mistake, this guitar delivers on every front; typically spellbinding aesthetics, unparalleled playability and a gloriously rich tone that has to be heard to be believed!
Body & Neck
As with many of PRS' Custom 24 offerings, this guitar features a mahogany back for plenty of weighty low-end emphasis and soaring sustain. You can be pretty safe in the knowledge that this isn't just any mahogany either; the folks at the PRS wood library are pretty picky, so this will doubtless be the smoothest, most resonant mahogany available on the market.
Perhaps one of the most distinct and notable features of the Wood Library guitars is the body's top wood. In this case, you've got a carved 10-top flamed maple top, perfectly contrasted by the luxurious Blue Burst finish.
The neck employs a Pattern Thin design for easy access and comfortable playability. It uses figured maple for both the back of the neck and the fretboard, adding a beautifully organic touch to its appearance. Maple is also known for its bright, snappy quality - combine this with the mahogany body and you have a perfectly rounded, wholly versatile sound that's tough to match!
Electronics & Hardware
This guitar is dual-loaded with PRS' revered 85/15 pickups; a treble in the bridge and a bass in the neck. Known for their uncanny ability to squeeze every ounce of resonance and harmonic quality out of a guitar's tonewood, they're the perfect match for a Wood Library configuration. You also have a 5-way pickup selector & simple volume & tone controls at your disposal, so you can truly make the most of the many tonal sweet spots available. Stay in position 1 for gutsy, crystalline riffage, or try one of the split positions to make the most of the maple's snappy quality - the choice is yours!
The Gen III Tremolo and Phase III locking tuners are designed to work in cooperation with eachother; add subtle vibrato or full-tilt gargling without fear of going out of tune. The hardware is a mixture of nickel and chrome, carefully selected to complement the eye-catching looks of this guitar - delicious!
