Press Release: http://www.prsguitars.com/index.php/news/story/prs_guitars_introduces_p24_limited_edition

The P24, PRS’s first 24-fret solidbody piezo-equipped instrument, gives musicians a new and unique tool to add to their lineup. Based on the extremely versatile P22 model, the limited edition P24 comes standard with a maple 10-Top, mahogany back, 25” scale length Pattern-Regular mahogany neck, Honduran rosewood fretboard with mother of pearl “old school” bird inlays, hybrid hardware, a PRS piezo adjustable stoptail bridge, and the redesigned PRS/LR Baggs piezo system. Only 50 instruments will be made in each of the five colors offered: Black Gold Burst, Blue Crab Blue Burst, Eriza Verde Smokeburst, Fire Red Burst, and Vintage Smokeburst.

Piezo systems have long allowed guitarists the versatility of wielding both acoustic and electric guitar tones in one instrument. And while the acoustic tones created by the P24 are impressively natural, the highly-acclaimed 53/10 pickups are very musical as well. The 5-way blade pickup switch maximizes the versatility of these pickups by providing ample switching possibilities.

The company’s P22 model was released in January of this year and was met with great praise from artists, engineers, and producers alike. After a recording session with the P22, Grammy Award-winning Producer and Engineer Don McCollister said, “I have recorded and mixed hundreds and hundreds of acoustic guitars, including mixing both live and studio cuts, and I have never heard a more musical, more natural sound from an acoustic pickup system. If that had been the only thing special about the guitar I would have been excited, but then to hear the electric tones it creates - I was blown away.”

Likewise, the breadth of acoustic and electric guitar tones offered by the P24 make it a perfect go-to guitar for players of all kinds. For more information, please visit: www.prsguitars.com/p24. To locate an authorized PRS dealer or distribute, visit: http://www.prsguitars.com/dealer.php.

Glad to see it finally came into fruition. I'm still biding my time for the piezo to get loaded into the PRS trem.

They HAVE to introduce a trem model. Way more people play trem and LR Baggs have finally introduced retrofitted saddles for the PRS trems also. Either way its good to see the P22 do good enough for a 24 fret version!

Yeah, Brian Meador launched that email at me this morning.
This is eggzackly what I've been waiting for. (And Meador knew it.)
Ordered one in Blue Crab Blue.
Didn't even have time to get all obsessed about it first.
