The PRS CE 24 was originally introduced all the way back in 1988 as a way of delivering the traditional snappy bolt-on tone from a PRS guitar. The CE 24 follows in its Custom 24 counterpart's footsteps with a double-cutaway design, dual humbuckers, 24 frets and a mahogany body topped with a beautiful maple cap.
From the front, the CE 24 looks like any other core PRS. Figured maple top, bird inlays and a set of durable PRS hardware exactly as you would expect on a Custom 24. However, under the hood are a few changes that makes this a completely different tone machine. It's made of an all-mahogany body, delivering on warm characteristics with loads of midrange. This works alongside the bolt on construction, which adds brightness to the tone.
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 neck is a tried and tested shape that allows your hand to flow with ease across the fretboard. The highly adjustable PRS tremolo also lets you set up the guitars exactly how you want.
85/15 humbuckers are incredible pickups found all the way through the PRS range, right to the upper echelons of the Custom 24 series. Highly versatile and powerful, the CE24 pair gains an extra top-end bite from the bolt-on neck - ideal for hard rock and metal. That's not all, as these vintage-voiced pickups roll back for edge of breakup tones without the intense saturation.
