Played by internationally touring artists, gigging musicians, and aspiring players, the SE Custom 24 has become the most popular SE model in a diverse lineup of guitars.

PRS - 30th Anniversary Custom 24 - Amethyst

By ALVIN

Comments about PRS SE 30th Anniversary Custom 24 Electric Guitar:

This guitar is absolutely the best! Its wide, thin neck makes my chord work soo easy and because of the generous string spacing, I rarely buzz other strings. This thing is what the Gibson SG used to be (no offense to Gibson but it actually has a finish. I am an old school, average player, but this is no average Guitar. Any professional who owns one would agree with me I'm sure. Its light weight is makes it easy to endured a 4 hour gig. Its got great tuning pegs that don't move, and I am not constantly tuning the strings I stretch a lot! What a guitar!!!

      Comments about PRS SE 30th Anniversary Custom 24 Electric Guitar:

      I had a recent attack of G.A.S. was looking for a guitar that I could play live that looked and played great - with both humbucker & single coil sounds. What an incredible find - what an amazing value. Right out of the box this guitar played flawlessly. And the guitar looks like "artwork". PRS quality control is impressive, even for their out of states manufacturing. I have expensive American made guitars that don't play or sound this good. Get one of these - you will not be disappointed.

          Comments about PRS SE 30th Anniversary Custom 24 Electric Guitar:

          I've own this guitar for about a week now and I must say, this is a solid work-horse guitar, even though is a "low-end guitar" because is an "SE" but don't let that fool you at all. I'm really happy and satisfied with this guitar. I must say PRS are well above other guitar companies about their instruments on how they feel and play, even without plugging my guitar I strum it and it resonates alot.Very happy with my purchase. I would recommend this guitar to anyone who is ready to upgrade their gear. I can write more about it but I think I made my point.

            Comments about PRS SE 30th Anniversary Custom 24 Electric Guitar:

            I did a lot of research before buying this instrument. I have 6 other guitars, but i wanted to give the PRS SE Custom 24 a try based on the favorable reviews. The finish was flawless (amethyst, quilted maple top) and it has a very wide range of great tones. My only reservation is that it has a hard time staying in tune, even though I don't use the tremolo. Also, the tone control doesn't have as firm a feel as the volume control (i.e., very loose) and the tone control knob appears to not be in alignment with the body of the instrument.

                The Guitar arrived late. 15 days, had dirty strings with the wrong gauge strings. The bridge was at a 15 degree angle, and it came with out a tremolo arm and pick up selector switch tip. It was played and Not a New guitar.

                    Did a lot of research, these PRS SE 24 30th Anniversary models are highly rated. Was looking for something to compliment my single coils on stage. This guitar plays and looks fantastic! Set it up with 10's but it played great right out of the box. My luthier was also pretty impressed by playability of the guitar as well. At this price point this guitar cannot be beat!
