A revamped classic with advanced wiring and a gorgeous finish.
The Custom 24 is the original PRS…the guitar Paul Reed Smith took to his first tradeshow in 1985. A perennial favorite with musicians, this model features a Pattern Thin mahogany neck and 57/08 pickups wired for a redesigned 5-way blade switch, which offers a dual humbucker option for the first time (see switching positions below).
HFS treble and Vintage bass pickups were first offered in the 1990s and helped to define the sound of the time by providing a balance of aggressive, musical, clear highs and strong midrange and bass. In 2008, PRS introduced 57/08 pickups, which were designed to capture a vintage ‘50s humbucking tone. Includes case.

Position One: Bridge humbucker
