PRS Ltd Edition CE24 Rosewood Fingerboard in Faded Blue Smoke Burst

Written by

Elliot Stent

The PRS CE 24 was originally introduced back in 1988, as a means of delivering the traditional "snappy" bolt-on tone but from a PRS guitar. Following in its Custom 24 counterpart's footsteps with a double-cutaway design, dual humbuckers, 24 frets and a Mahogany body — this particular 'custom colour' model features a limited edition Faded Blue Smoke Burst finish and a sleek "blackout" Maple neck!

Bolt-On Design

From the front, the CE 24 looks like any other Core line PRS. Bird inlays and durable PRS hardware is exactly what you would expect on a Custom 24. However, under the hood are a few changes that makes this a completely different tone machine. It utilises an all-Mahogany body, delivering warm tonal characteristics with lots of mid-range potency. This works perfectly in tandem with the bolt-on Maple neck, which adds brightness and clarity to the tone.

Pure Playability

Part of what made the original PRS CE 24 guitars so popular was how easy they were to play. These lean rock machines offer great playability without the frills. The 'Pattern Thin' profile is a tried-and-tested shape that allows your hand to flow with ease across the silky Rosewood fretboard. The highly-adjustable PRS tremolo also lets you set up the guitar exactly how you want!

85/15 Pickups

PRS' 85/15 humbuckers are incredible pickups found all the way through the PRS range, right to the upper-echelons of the Core Custom 24 series. Highly-versatile and powerful, the CE 24's 85/15 pairing gains extra top-end bite from the bolt-on neck — making it ideal for hard rock and metal genres. That's not all, as these vintage-voiced pickups roll back for inspiring edge-of-breakup tones without the intense saturation.
