Overview

The 30th Anniversary Custom 24 is specially appointed with a unique inlay pattern and commemorative truss rod cover to celebrate 30 years of PRS Guitars and the Custom 24 model. In addition to the specifications that have remained unchanged on the Custom 24 since its inception (the woods, scale length¦), this 30th Anniversary edition features the new 85/15 treble and bass pickups.

Designed personally by Paul Reed Smith in conjunction with the new 58/15 pickups for PRS™ 30th Anniversary year, 85/15s are uncovered pickups with remarkable clarity and extended high and low end perfect for more modern applications. This blend of tradition and innovation mirrors the culture that PRS developed over the last three decades.

The Custom 24 is the original PRS. When this guitar was introduced in 1985, the combination of a 24-fret, 25 scale length, dual humbucking, tremolo guitar was a distinctive configuration, offering players a new tonal option. Pairing this with a more traditional combination of maple top, mahogany back, and rosewood fretboard helped give the Custom 24 its signature look, feel, and tone. For three decades, the Custom 24 has been a perennial favorite of musicians, defining the playability and tone that PRS guitars are known for.

    Comments about PRS 30th Anniversary Custom 24 Quilted Maple Top Electric Guitar:

    I own the PRS Custom 24, 20th anniversary, except in blue color. This guitar is amazing. The tone is fantastic. But what really surprised me was the clarity of the guitar even in high gain settings. On most guitars (even high end ones), the notes kind of run together if I do, for example, a rapid Em arpeggio in 12th position. WIth this PRS model, each note is remarkably clear.

    I play all kinds of music, including blues, rock, heavy metal,country, bluegrass, pop. The guitar sounds great in any genre. People are blown away when they see the look of this guitar. I get more positive comments from guitarists and non-guitarists on this guitar. Well worth the price tag. I wouldn't hesitate to buy if I had it do over again.
