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. Played by internationally touring artists, gigging musicians, and aspiring players, the Custom 24 features PRS’s patented Gen III tremolo system and PRS 58/15LT pickups (the same as on the McCarty 594 and SC594) with volume and tone controls and a 5-way blade switch. 58/15LT pickups were personally designed by Paul Reed Smith to offer a modern take on a traditional PAF pickup.
There are several appointments on this guitar which make this truly exclusive. The following are not available on standard CORE Custom 24 models:
Quilt Maple Top / Korina Body / Korina Neck / Cocobolo Fretboard / Old School Bird Inlays / Custom Black Gold Burst w/Natural Binding Color
The Custom 24 is the original PRS. Since its introduction, it has offered a unique tonal option for serious players and defined PRS tone and playability.
