Called my local G.C. yesterday to inquire about buying a new American Strat, I asked about a couple of models and at the last minute asked about the PRS SE 25th Aniversary Custom 24. The sales rep called me back and said come on in. I went in and tried out a couple of Srats, I could definately see a difference between the American Strat and my Mexican Strat it felt beefier and more finished. After I tried out an American HSS Strat, I was just about decided on, I asked about the PRS He brought out a red mahogany finished one. I plugged it in and it felt real good. Pumped up the volume and it sounded better. The neck felt great, controls and switch felt like quality. I asked if there was a big difference between the American made PRS and this one. He pulled out a couple of more expensive PRS $1500-$1000 that were demos, not only did the Custom 24 look better, it sounded better and felt better, at least to me. I told him I'll take this one home. I had my 10% off coupon and for the price, I think I stole this guitar. I wanted the yellow natural finish, which he said he could order, but I didn't want to walk out of the store empty handed. I took a look over the guitar again in the light and I felt like I was warming up to this one real quick. I don't have a red mahogany guitar yet. I took it home and played for about four hours straight and it's the easiest guitar I ever played and it sounds great. I'm an intermediate player, but I try to practice ever day. As I was leaving the store in Boston, which is right next to Fenway Park, I couldn't help think that PRS hit this one OUT OF THE PARK Very nice guitar, and it's a PRS to boot !

I loved this guitar when I first opened the box. The finish is first-rate the overall feel is great. Unfortunately, I could not get the intonation set. I tried myself (have been playing ans setting up guitars for over 25 years) and also gave it to my local tech to try. I own a PRS custom 24 and a custom SE 24 and both are great. Maybe this one was a lemon, but I returned it because of the issues with intonation. BTW, MF was great and gave me absolutely no grief on the return. Don't be afraid to by a guitar from this place!

Comments about PRS SE 25th Anniversary Custom 24 Electric Guitar:

This is a great guitar, it lets out a strong, rich sound. It looks and sounds beautiful. The only problem I've found is toughness of the finish on the body, but that's not a big deal at all

PRS SE 25th Custom 24 surprisingly great guitar.

By David Street

from San Antonio, TX

Comments about PRS SE 25th Anniversary Custom 24 Electric Guitar:

I have a Les Paul Deluxe, Telecaster and Stratocasters in my guitar collection. I had never played any PRS guitar but had my interest Peaked watching Orianthi's video and SE recoomendation, also heard what Alex Lifeson had to say about how much he liked the PRS guitars, so I went down and decided to try one out.
This 25th anniversary SE Custom 24 just blew me away. I've never played a guitar that was this comfortable and fast. Techniques that I struggle with on other brands, were easy on this guitar. Also, the tremolo was excellent, which is a feature that is usually lacking on other guitars. PRS got this right on this guitar. The body is light and the thin wide neck it the fastest, and smoothest that I've played. I plugged into a Fender Hot Rod Deville to check out the Pickups and was pleasantly surprised at the clarity and the sustain. From clean to overdriven, the sound was spot on. I can't believe that this guitar is priced where it is. Definitely an extreemly good value. I decided that I couldn't live with out it, so I bought it and now it is part of my collection and will grace the stage on every gig.
Hat's off to you on this one PRS. Keep up the good work.

For the price this can't be beat!

By Jason

Comments about PRS SE 25th Anniversary Custom 24 Electric Guitar:

I've been looking to get a PRS for a while but the price has always been out of my range. Then this little beauty showed up! This guitar has such a great feel, and the quilted maple top with the bird inlays set it off! The pickups sound great, and the sustain is phenomenal. You can dive bomb this thing and it still stays perfectly in tune! Worth way more than I paid for it!

PRS and my thoughts

By Dr. Richard W. Prosser

from Concord, NC

Comments about PRS SE 25th Anniversary Custom 24 Electric Guitar:

I have owned a PRS for about 3 years now. I can say without a doubt it's the best guitar i have ever played. Presently I own a PRS Custom 24 with the birds on the frets. I play lead guitar for a rock Christian band at my church, and the sounds i get from my PRS is not comparable to anything else I have ever played. I strongly recommend to anyone looking for a new guitar Play the PSM American made guitar FIRST, then look at the others. You will come back to PRS every time, and if you dont come back you'll always wish you had.

Great Guitar!

By Charlotte

from Illinois

Comments about PRS SE 25th Anniversary Custom 24 Electric Guitar:

I have this guitar, bought it in February 2010 and I have nothing but compliments! It fits the body of a woman quite well, the body isn't as large as other guitars I have played in the past. You can play a variety of styles of music on this guitar. I primarily play rock and it has a great range from hard, low, rumbling chords to the perfect high notes for a solo. All in all, a wonderful guitar to play and to look at.

NICE!!!

Comments about PRS SE 25th Anniversary Custom 24 Electric Guitar:

I picked this up from MF a week after I bought my American Standard Strat from MF. I got to say that I love the PRS better than the Strat. The quality is better IMHO. It's made in Korea for crying out loud and it smokes the Strat made in the USA!! Oh well, needless to say the Strat doesn't get played that much anymore if at all. Get one of these, or the plain jane CU24 SE in different colors. Awesome guitar.
