Expanded Sonic Territory

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 tap the humbuckers for single coil sounds and a total of eight pickup 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 molded 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.

“Many times, when multiple options are available with pickups, one or two just don’t really make sense. Not here; we found the single coil tones very sweet and still maintained unity gain and didn’t require any fussing with boosting the signal in other ways to still be heard or cut through…Overall, it’s a practical and giggable instrument right out of the box.”
