Thread: My 1st CU24 CE - waited 23 years to age ~~~

  1. #1

    My 1st CU24 CE - waited 23 years to age ~~~

    So, I've been shopping for a Custom 24 and usually stay away from bolt-ons, but this striking color just caught my attention. It's a 1994 Custom 24 CE. Then, when I picked it up and played it unplugged I was really impressed with its resonance and the playability - of course, it's got the PRS action! I am generally averse to 5-way rotary dial, but really have grown to accept it and love the variance with the tones. And, I love these HFS and Vintage Bass pickups. Enjoy the pics!

    Killer, killer axe. Great top, great fade. Nothing like an alder-bodied CE with a rotary...magic.

    Awesome color, and I bet it'll only look better as it ages and fades.

    Now about the VB/HFS/rotary combination putting out uniquely great tones……..sorry, old news. I've been singin' that praise for years!

    Did that come from Lark St? I was eye-balling that one.
    Nice score! A 94 CE24 was my gateway-drug PRS.
    Not like the other kids...

    Yes! I've owned over 40 PRSi at one time or another, but never a CE until this one. This one is really special!

    I've always loved VB/HFS pickups and currently thinking of putting a pair in my ME. I'm also thinking of putting Dragon I into my ME as well.

    Sweet! I would love to try a CE someday.
    -I'm no expert, but it seems to work and I haven't electrocuted myself yet. Which is pretty much the standard I live by.
