The PRS Custom 24 features a rich history. It was the first guitar that Paul Reed Smith introduced to musicians everywhere at the 1985 NAMM show - the biggest trade show in the industry. It has gone from strength to strength ever since, becoming one of the most recognisable instruments around. When people think of PRS, this is the first guitar that usually springs to mind. There's a reason why it's the brands' best- selling instrument.
This guitar is favoured by musicians around the world - from enthusiasts, to professional session players and touring artists. That's all down to its eye-catching looks and equally attention grabbing sound. A mahogany body (with a carved figured maple top) produces a warm sound, with a welcome amount of harmonic seasoning within the mid-range.
A neck of the same wood boasts the highly renowned PRS Pattern profile. When augmented by the rosewood fingerboard, you'll notice a seriously smooth playing action that allows for quick, yet accurate performance.
Electronics & Hardware
The PRS Custom 24 is equipped with a set of 85/15 pickups. These vintage-inspired humbuckers are known for their clarity and presence, but can shift seamlessly to suit more nuanced, intimate playing too. Two mini-toggle switches can be used to put just one or both pickups into true single-coil or humbucking mode - allowing for some nice tonal variation depending on your needs.
PRS Phase III Locking tuners ensure your tuning will remain stable at all times. Not to mention the fact that they make string changes an absolute breeze too!
