PRS Custom 24 Guitars
The PRS Custom 24 has 24 frets and a scale length of 25”. When it was first created in the '80s, players described it as being directly in between a Strat and a Les Paul in terms of tone, playability and balance. However, the Custom 24 carved its own name into history and is up there with one of the most popular and famous guitar shapes in the world.
The Custom 24 is a versatile and easy-to-play instrument with a plethora of tones available by simply adjusting the way you playing or by using the tone and volume controls to sculpt your sound. Session players love the Custom 24 because it’ll give them a number of different tones without having to change between guitars.
PRS Custom 24 Guitars FAQs
What is a PRS Custom 24?
The Custom 24 is PRS’ flagship electric guitar. Launched at the 1985 NAMM Show, the distinctive Custom 24 was PRS’ first production model and it remains their best-selling guitar design to date. Renowned for its 25” scale length, gorgeous flying bird fingerboard inlays, dual humbucker configuration, Flamed Maple top, 24 frets and elegant body contours; the PRS Custom 24 is viewed by many as a modern classic guitar.
What's the difference between a PRS Custom 22 & 24?
A PRS Custom 22 features 22 frets, while a Custom 24 comes fitted with 24 frets. The Custom 22’s slightly shorter fingerboard allows for its rhythm humbucker to be installed further away from its bridge pickup, yielding a warmer tone. A PRS Custom 24 has a full two-octave range for each of its strings, making it popular with modern guitar players who prefer an extended upper register. However, this means that its neck humbucker has a marginally more brash sound.
What pickups does a PRS Custom 24 use?
Custom 22 guitars come equipped with PRS’ proprietary ‘85/15’ pickups. These versatile humbuckers are designed to offer exceptional power and clarity, with articulate highs and tight, extended lows. Excellent with clean, overdriven and distorted amp tones - these pickups cover a lot of sonic territory.
