The quintessential PRS guitar with an upgraded top.
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.
For 2015, the Custom 24 features PRS’s patented tremolo system, new maple top colors, a rosewood headstock veneer with inlaid “Paul Reed Smith” signature, and the choice of PRS’s 59/09 treble and bass pickups.

A very small percent of the maple trees cut in North America are actually figured. To make "10-Top" status, a PRS top must have clearly defined figure across its entire top with no "dead" spots. A guitar designated as a 10-Top will usually have a small "10" written on the back of the headstock in the upper right corner. Some of our earlier guitars have the "10" stamped into the finish in the same position.
