The Custom 24 is the quintessential PRS guitar. This iconic instrument was the first model that Paul Reed Smith brought to the public at PRS Guitars’ first Winter NAMM show in 1985 and has been a top seller ever since.
For 2015, the Custom 24 features PRS’s patented tremolo system, six new maple top colors (Aquableux, Blood Orange, Faded Whale Blue, Leprechaun Tooth, Obsidian, and Violet), a rosewood headstock veneer with inlaid “Paul Reed Smith” signature, and the choice of PRS’s 59/09 treble and bass pickups or HFS treble and Vintage Bass pickups.
Guitarists looking for additional options, colors, and enhanced features can order a Custom 24 Artist Package.
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
This summer PRS is saying thank you to everyone who buys a NEW PRS Archon amplifier and/or a NEW PRS Custom 24 guitar* with a unique gift.
