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 has been updated for 2011 with V12 finish, a Pattern Regular mahogany neck, and uncovered 59/09 pickups wired for the redesigned 5-way blade switch, which offers a dual humbucker option for the first time.
Finish should enhance the look, sound, and feel of a guitar by accentuating the wood's inherent beauty and feel without hindering its natural resonance. And PRS Guitars' new "V12" finish does just that. Introduced at Experience PRS 2010, "V12" is a very thin, hard, and clear finish that will not crack or react with thinners. After roughly 12 years in development, it is halfway between acrylic and nitro but with a classic feel all its own. "PRS models with this new finish feel like old instruments," said Paul Reed Smith.
Pattern Regular Shape
Neck shapes have always been a high priority for PRS and a hallmark of PRS quality. A guitar should feel comfortable, like "home," as soon as you pick it up, and the neck is paramount to that connection. The new "Pattern Regular" neck shape is similar to the traditional PRS regular neck found on guitars made in the late 80's at PRS's former Virginia Avenue location.
This new neck shape reflects modern tooling and programming that allows PRS to even more preciously shape and consistently reproduce their necks.

Comments about PRS Custom 24 Electric Guitar:
As an owner of an original custom 24, it was called a CE24 back, I must say that the new Custom 24 is great. The pickups scream and the pattern neck feels almost exactly like the old standard neck. I love this guitar, the look, the feel and especially the sound. This guitar can do, jazz, blues, rock, and metal. It doesn't sound like a les paul, or strat it sounds like a PRS. The only thing that bothers me is the location of the pickup selector, maybe it's just something i need to adjust to, but the whammy bar seems to block access to the switch. None of the guitar centers had this in stock to try, so I ordered one online and I'm so happy I did.
