Hidden away in the upper echelons of the PRS Factory is an exclusive little corner that is little more than shelf upon shelf of extraordinary wood types: quite literally dozens of species ranging from maple & mahogany through to ebony and even Brazilian Rosewood - a wood so rare that it can now only legally be obtained from trees that have fallen naturally, or from sources harvested prior to the 1992 CITES ban, and even then it has to be accompanied with a certificate to prove that this is the case! This area of the PRS Factory is lovingly referred to as the Wood Library, and the accompanying elaborate, menu-based program for the PRS Core line of guitars helps dealers - like PMT - to order a custom built, special run of PRS guitars to sell in their stores.
Created Using Only The Very Best Woods Available
This particular Wood Library Custom 22 has been constructed using a select solid mahogany body with a Wood Library Flame Maple top finished in Sapphire Smokeburst. The fretboard has been crafted from the finest Ebony inlaid with PRS standard Bird inlays, with the finished spectacle being stunning to behold - as a result the guitar manages to look every inch the premium guitar that the price tag would hint at, but without being overly gaudy.
- Top Wood: Carved Flame Maple
- Back Wood: Mahogany
- Finish: Sapphire Smokeburst
The familiar look of the PRS Custom 24 is down to the gorgeous figured Maple wood cap, which gives the guitar its hallmark appearance. This particular guitar is also finished in satin Sapphire Smokeburst, with a stained solid mahogany back playing host to the cap. This Mahogany back makes for a light-weight and comfortable guitar, with that famous warm tonewood voicing that PRS guitars are known for.
- Number of Frets: 22
- Scale Length: 25"
- Neck Wood: Mahogany
- Neck Shape: Pattern Thin
- Fretboard Wood: Ebony
- Fretboard Inlay: Birds
A Pattern Thin neck is perfectly suited for fast and fluid playstyles, offering you a smooth and comfortable playing experience with easy access to each and every nook and cranny of the fretboard. The mahogany neck with ebony fretboard, inlaid with Bird fret-markers, manages to add a finishing touch of PRS class to this already incredible-looking instrument.
- Bridge: PRS Patented Tremolo, Gen III
- Tuners: PRS Phase III Locking
- Hardware Type: Nickel
The Gen III Tremolo and Phase III locking tuners on the Custom 24 are designed to work perfectly in tandem with one another - allow yourself the luxury of introducing anything from a slight shimmer to a hefty divebomb into your guitar solo, without seeing the integrity of your guitar's tuning affected.
- Treble Pickup: 85/15 Treble
- Bass Pickup: 85/15 Bass
- Controls: Volume and Tone Control with 5-Way Blade Switch
The awesome PRS 85/15 Humbuckers are based around the original pickups found in the 1985 model, perfectly recreating that classic warm and clear tone that we've come to know and love. The 5-way selector switch allows you to choose an array of pickup options: whether you want to utilise the pickups as Humbuckers, Single Coils, or a combination of the two, it's entirely up to you - the tonal options you're presented with here are many and varied!
Pickup Switching Positions
- Position One: Bridge humbucker
- Position Two: Bridge humbucker with neck singlecoil, in parallel
- Position Three: Bridge and neck humbuckers
- Position Four: Neck singlecoil with bridge singlecoil, in parallel
- Position Five: Neck humbucker
Add to this a tone and volume control, and you have yourself an incredibly versatile guitar that would suit just about any musical situation.
