The Custom 24 is the quintessential PRS guitar: the iconic guitar that started it all back in 1985. The Custom 24-08 keeps all the foundational specs of the instrument, while taking the Custom platform to new sonic territories. Like the Core Series instrument, the SE Custom 24-08 features two mini-toggle coil tap switches that individually split the humbuckers into true single coils for a total of eight pickups configurations. Classic design elements include a maple top, mahogany back, rosewood fretboard, 24 frets, 25” scale length, bird inlays, signature headstock logo, and PRS patented tremolo.

For a sub-$1000 price point, you really get your money's worth when it comes to action, fit, & finish. This guitar, especially in the Eriza Verde finish, is stunning from top to bottom…I'd be hard-pressed to pick anything over this if you told me I need to grab a guitar and play a handful of styles and genres on stage tonight. PRS has done a great job with this one, and the SE Custom 24-08 is another premium addition to their affordable lines.
These [SE Custom 24 & SE Custom 24-08] are inherently versatile designs that will cover a wide range of styles. The vintage-hot voice of their pickups is a great place to start, but once you factor in those switching options these both reveal themselves as Swiss Army Knife six-strings.
