Premium-Quality Guitar with a Rare Finish
For more than 30 years the PRS Custom 24 has been capturing the imagination of professional and aspiring professional guitarists alike. For many of those musicians, this guitar represents the ultimate goal on their journey, and with good reason too.
These legendary guitars first made their presence felt at the 1985 Winter NAMM show, and continue to be just as awe-inspiring today as they were then.
PRS Custom 24 Body
- Top Wood: Carved Flame Maple
- Back Wood: Solid Mahogany
- Finish: Faded Whale Blue Smokeburst
A combination of Mahogany and Carved Maple for the body is an inspiring tonewood choice. Seen on some of the most highly-regarded tone-machines of the 20th Century, this wood pairing is steeped in rock and roll history.
For starters, the Mahogany back produces a warm and mellow sounding tone, with plenty of punch. Then the Flame Maple top chips in with some snappy overtones, a fast attack, and bags of sustain.
The overall voice of these woods working together evokes the spirit of countless vintage rock and blues songs, and they work especially well together with the 85/15 humbuckers.
The Flamed Maple top is also coated in a rare Tortoiseshell finish - a colouring usually only found on much older PRS guitars.
PRS Custom 24 Neck
- Number of Frets: 24
- Scale Length: 25"
- Neck Wood: Mahogany
- Neck Shape: Pattern Thin
- Nut Width: 1-11/16"
- Fretboard Wood: Rosewood
- Inlays: PRS Birds
- Fretboard Radius: 10"
Whether your playstyle of choice is to play simple open chord-work, or searing lead lines, the PRS Pattern Thin neck shape will accommodate you. This neck is designed to offer players a versatile option, whilst still retaining the rock-solid feel generally associated with PRS.
For this limited edition Custom 24 the neck is adorned with a gorgeous Rosewood fingerboard, inlaid with those instantly familiar PRS Birds.
PRS Custom 24 Hardware
- Bridge: PRS Patented Tremolo, Gen III
- Tuners: PRS Phase III Locking
- Hardware Type: Nickel
Part of the reason for the PRS Custom 24's popularity is the company's commitment to continually evolving their hardware based on the needs of modern-day guitarists.
In this case we have a set of PRS Phase III Locking Tuners, and a 3rd Generation PRS Patented Tremolo.
These locking tuners provide you with pin-point tuning accuracy, as well as the ability to change strings faster. With the Gen III Patented Tremolo you have a bridge system that synchronises perfectly with the locking tuners, giving you a superior level of tuning stability, even if you use the trem to bend your notes.
