I bought my PRS SE Custom 24 from Guitar Center, actually traded up a MIM Strat. I was worried at first it wouldn't compare in sound and quality, but has surpassed both. It has a very warm sound even with the coil taps but handles gain very well. With a little string stretching and use the trem is surprisingly stable for an import.This particular version, Cherry with Creme Binding, seems to be a Guitar Center exclusive, just because it's not an available option listed on the USA PRS site. The maple veneer is beautiful plus it was on sale for an insane price! I have achieved a broad range of tones from this beast, and a usable trem to boot. The one reason that I gave it 4 stars is because of a couple of paint specks under the lacquer (only under close inspection) but also gives it character like a birth mark. If you want a PRS and are worried it's for new age metal players then reconsider. This one can handle any thing you can challenge it with.

    Pros

    • 25" Scale
    • Looks great
    • Verastile tone (humbucker & single coil)

    Cons

    • Pots & switch seem a bit cheap

    Best Uses

      Comments about PRS 2017 SE Custom 24 Creme Binding Electric Guitar:

      The guitar is very nice. Fit & finish are excellent. The action is low and plays buzz free all over the fretboard. The trem bridge works well, just a bit of pressure on the bar and you get a nice vibrato effect. So far (one evening) I haven't seen issues with it going out of tune but with non-locking tuners I suspect it is going to happen.

      Comments about PRS 2017 SE Custom 24 Creme Binding Electric Guitar:

      The 2017 PRS SE Custom 24 with creme binding is my dream guitar. Up until now, the best neck I'd played was a Gibson SG Gold Series... this matches the quality of that neck. The best weight to sound ratio was a heavier '79 strat. This matches that weight/sound ratio. The best sounding electric I've ever heard was a '59 Gretsch 6120... and this does not match that, but it is in the ballpark. The coil-splitting makes it so versatile. I use this guitar for everything - rockabilly, blues, classic rock, alt-rock, and metal. I love this thing so much I even named it!

              Comments about PRS 2017 SE Custom 24 Creme Binding Electric Guitar:

              Simply the best sub $1500 guitar I've played. This thing sounds like a cross between a strat and les paul as far as humbucker tone. Not sure what to compare it to with the coils split. All the bite without the muddyness that comes with les pauls. Has best of both worlds. Although when I received the guitar it required a truss rod adjustment to cure an annoying buzz and the intonation needed to be tweaked. The only reason it it not 5 stars is because of the annoying adjustments I feel got past QC. Was going to return it for another one, but decided to try and fix these issues. I'm so glad I did, what an awesome guitar for the money.

                  I was considering this guitar during the guitar-a-thon sale but did not pull the trigger as I hadn't seen one in person and hand not held one. Exactly one day after the sale ended, my local gc had it in. Arrived that day. I asked them if they could do the sale price. The manager was able to do it with some coaxing. Setup was terrific out of the box. String height perfect, intonation spot on. Get it, you won't likely regret it.

                  Yes you can spend more on a guitar, but it won't be a better guitar.
                  PRS has included all the refinements that you wish Gibson & Fender would fix.
                  The guitar feels great, comfortable to play, and the new 85/15 pickups sound amazing.
                  Lastly, the guitar is easy on the eyes too. You can't go wrong with this purchase! I said the same thing about the Custom 22, I own both of them. They really are 2 different beast entirely. Love them both.

                  This is the guitar I've been waiting for my whole life. What a beautiful piece, absolutely nothing wrong with it at all! It plays as great as it looks and the action is perfectly lowered. The sounds coming out of this thing is just amazing. I can't wait to get the American core model some day, but for now I'm more than satisfied. Thanx Guitar Center!
