Great Axe!

Comments about PRS SE Custom 24 Creme Binding Electric Guitar:

I had my mind set on a completely different guitar when I went in to Guitar center. I happened to pick this one up because it caught my eye and it just instantly blew me away. Great value for the price. The color pops against the ebony fretboard and the sound is amazing. The tones are clean and crisp but can also hold its own with some grunge and distortion. The neck is smooth as silk. They've done a great job on the fret filing, which makes a really smooth feel sliding up and down the neck. It just plays effortlessly. Wouldn't trade it for the money!

    Comments about PRS SE Custom 24 Creme Binding Electric Guitar:

    I'm 59 I've owned and own and played just about every guitar there is including American PRS and I bought this while looking for another Les Paul after seeing the finish and flame maple top out of the corner of my eye...after years of turning my nose up at these 'Boutique' guitars I said to myself 'what the heck!', grabbed it, played it for about 2 minutes and realized...WOW!, this is the best lowest no buzz action, best sustain, one of the best guitars I've ever played in my life! Clean tone, Rock Tone, Jazz, R&B, Blues, woody pluck tone and the split coil... I immediately bought it and didn't take a chance of losing this particular one. I buy guitars for studio use for others to use as well as myself. This is a tone monster! Korean factory set up was spot on. It couldn't get any better. playing above the 12th fret as easy as the first positions. Super low no buzz or dead spots anywhere. As I have never played a PRS before, now I know first hand why a lot of session guys I've worked with use them as their main axe in the studio and live.
    Amazing Quality and Playability for 3 figures...on sale with a heavy duty gig bag too!

      Nothing better for the money

      By Chris

      About Me Experienced

      Comments about PRS SE Custom 24 Creme Binding Electric Guitar:

      I cannot say enough how outstanding this instrument is. There is truly no guitar on the planet better for the money than a PRS SE Custom 24. The quality of this guitar in general, combined with tremendous playability make it a "must own" for discerning players. The coil tapping adds a tremendous versatility in tone. I can make this guitar sound like a Telecaster one moment, and then a Les Paul the next. But none of those can be made to sound like a PRS. This is simply a great guitar.

        Comments about PRS SE Custom 24 Creme Binding Electric Guitar:

        This is a great guitar. I've had this thing for a solid year now and couldn't be happier. When it came, I opened the box and it was beautiful. I ran upstairs, plugged it in and was a tad disappointed because the action was REALLY high, however the tone was fantastic. So I fixed the action to the way I liked it and now I couldn't be happier. This guitar is the do it all guitar, you can manipulate the sound in any which way you want, from a nice clean Metal tone (my preference) to a warm and rich classic rock sound and back again. The coil tap along with the whammy bar are nice add on features as well. So if you play anything from The Dillinger Esc. Plan or Mastodon to something like Led Zeppelin, you're sure to be happy having this monster in your arsenal. And best of all, I got it on sale :) A huge win all around.

        Great guitar, but not what I ordered. I ordered the rose wood freatboard and got the ebony. When I called and complained, they told me they could not find it in there system and when I asked to speak to a supervisor. they had no answer for me and told me to return it to the store.

            Comments about PRS SE Custom 24 Creme Binding Electric Guitar:

            I am just getting back into playing after a long absence. My Epiphone SG is a nice guitar, however, it is neck heavy and with the strap button on the back, the body leans forward. Not a problem sitting down, but trying to correct for that while standing up is a bit much for a beginner. So, I was looking to trade it in for something else.

            This was the first guitar that I tried out when I went into the store. I looked at a few others, which were also nice, namely the Epiphone LP semi-hollow. However, the PRS was the one I kept coming back to. Oh, and note that I am a 5'0" woman with small hands, and a shoulder problem. I was initially looking for a shorter scale guitar, however upon trying this model out, I didn't even notice the scale at all. The neck and body are so ergonomically well-designed, that this guitar is VERY playable, even if you have smaller hands.

              I played this guitar at GC a handful of times and loved it. When a floor model was put on sale a few months ago, I bought it and could not be happier. The tone is very versatile, easy to switch between light rock and metal. The playability is what drew me to this guitar and what keeps me practicing every night. I see myself playing this guitar and no other for along time.

                Wow, wow and wow!! This thing is a beast. Right out of the box it played like butter. Amazing action, great tonal range, smooth, awesome sound, push/pull knob offers nice additional opton to dial in your sound. At the price point you definitely get more bang for you buck than with anything else in the same price range. I would absolutely buy this 100 times over and would absolutely recommend it to a friend.

                  This is an astounding value. I've become a true PRS fan over the last few years, and this se custom 24 just reinforces my appreciation. Other guitars I currently use include a pair of custom Carvins, an Epi 60's tribute LP, a Gibson LP and an Epi Casino. They all have their own unique tones and uses, and I treasure them all, but the PRS se custom 24 is the one I usually reach for first. The wide-thin neck is simply amazing and the overall feel of this guitar is marvelous. Not a real fan of the coil-splitters, so I don't use them much. The finish is gorgeous, workmanship pristine. Also don't use the tremolo very often, but in virtually every respect, this guitar compares favorably with instruments costing 2 to 3 times the $$. The staff at GC was extremely helpful and knowledgeable as well.

                    I can not put this guitar down. I purchased the cherry sunburst and the finish is very good. I'm playing through a fender champion 100 and I have dialed in an amazing clean tone and sustain for playing jazz fusion. I also use some modulation and wha and still get a very excelent tone. the thin neck makes playing
                    Jazz chords all that more fun.

                      I bought this beautiful guitar from my local GC 8 months ago used for half the price. I don't understand why it was so cheap because everything works fine, great tone, good feel, solid craftsmanship, stays perfectly in tune, etc. This guitar has so many tonal options thanks to its coil-splitting feature. I can get a warm jazz tone or a twangy tele tone! I play it every day and it has never disappointed me, good job Paul on this one.

                      Now stop reading the reviews and get one!

                          It would have been nice to have one of these, a long time ago. It would've saved me a lot of money and aggravation. Very playable, solid, well made instrument. No annoying electronic issues, either. Well worth it..managed to get it on sale, too.

                            I am 49 and have always wanted to play guitar. I walked into Guitar Center with no idea what to look for in a guitar. A sales associate pointed out this guitar and I have loved it ever since. I have SO much to learn, but I feel confident that this guitar will take me to the places I want to go.

                              This was going to be a gift... I just can't seem to put it down. I haven't played in years. Think it's time I start again. I'm keeping this one.
