This guitar plays like a dream, and considering it's price it just may be the best guitar available. This is a beautiful guitar with amazing hardware which looks much much better in person than any photos of it online. It has excellent tone definition and a great crisp sound. The pick-ups give you an excellent sharp sounding tone which is perfect for playing styles like rock, blues, or metal. This guitar is just amazing and you cant get the full experience just by reading reviews, do yourself a favor and play this guitar, you will buy it without thinking twice.
Ive seen a bunch of guitars in magazines and on line and PRS guitars are the only ones that consistently look better in person. My custom 24 I had custom ordered in whale blue quilted. It is the most beautiful guitar I have ever seen. The two guitars I had played most before getting this one were the strat and Les Paul. My deal was I thought the Les Paul was too heavy and didnt feel good when you played it sitting down, the strats shape felt good but lets face it you cant really play metal on a strat. The custom 24 is the perfect blend of these two, a light guitar that sits well but instead of the strats country tone you get the most versatile guitar on earth that can melt your face, blow the roof off your house or put you to sleep before you can even start counting sheep. Play it and fall in love.
I think, simply put, that PRS guitars are quite possibly the best guitars made (well... short of buying a custom built Anderson or Suhr or Zion). Judging by mine, that's certainly the case. Mine is a 20th anniversary PRS Custom 24 in blue quilt which i purchased new for a pitance as it was on sale. The only differences between it and the model listed on this website are the bird inlays are the 20th anniversary inlays and it has a 3 way versus a 5 way switch. Regardless, the guitar sounds like you would expect an instrument of this price to sound. The pickups are well vioced and have character (unlike Gibson LP pickups which in my opinion sound very common and get lost in the mix when playing with others). The sustain is also absolutly awesome. I'm used to an American Strat, no poor man's guitar, and even versus the A.S it's a huge improvement. The guitar was well worth the price. I'd easily pay twice as much for a guitar this good.
This guitar is simply flawless. It sings, it sustains, the tonal variety is mind boggling, it stays in tune, it is consistant throughout the fretboard, the trem bridge is great, it looks spectacular. I wish I hadn't waited so long to buy one. It is the only guitar in which I have ever used the tone knob. The case is beautiful. I want another one !!!
WOW!!! This is a really great guitar! I've played just about every PRS guitar, but this one really stands out. Its sound is absolutely crystal clear; its been awhile since i've seen a guitar with this good sound quality. I absolutely recommend this guitar to any musician...that is, if you can afford the hefty price tag...if you're just starting out, you might wanna get a cheaper guitar, but that's up to you.
