PRS USA CE24 Semi-Hollow in Trampas Green

Written by

Sam Beattie

The PRS CE 24 was originally introduced all the way back in 1988 as a way of delivering the traditional bolt-on snap on a PRS guitar. Now it's been given the semi-hollow treatment, combining trademark PRS playability with beautifully resonant semi-hollow qualities.

Semi-Hollow Design

PRS have stuck to their go-to tonewood combination of Mahogany and Maple. In the case of this CE24 model, however, the Mahogany is chambered, letting the Maple resonate more freely. Your sound will simultaneously adopt a more pronounced midrange sparkle and some extra-weighty sustain.

Bolt On Neck

From the front this guitar still looks like any other core PRS. Flamed Maple top, bird inlays and a set of powerful PRS hardware; all of the features you would expect on a Custom 24 or similar.

Under the hood and round the back you can see quite a few changes though, that make this a completely different tone machine. It still has the curved Mahogany body topped with a Flamed Maple top, something that PRS are well known for, but the neck is made out of Maple instead of the usual Mahogany. This works along with the bolt-on design, adding brightness and snap to the tone.

85/15 Pickups

Unlike some of the other PRS year-based designs, the 85/15 is based on the pickup Paul Reed Smith would have ideally had back when he started the company in 1985. These are highly-versatile, especially in the CE24, where they gain extra high-end bite that works perfectly for hard rock and metal.
