Comments about PRS SE Custom 24 Electric Guitar:

Like many, I don't typically write reviews. I have tons of American, Japanese, Korean and Mexican gear. (If that helps my credibility at all). Anyway I was never a fan of PRS, I was strictly a Fender, Gibson, Gretsch and Ibanez king of guy. Anyway, my local Guitar Center has a used PRS custom 24 and I picked it up and played on it for a while and fell in love with it. The guitar basically played itself! All the controls were Right where they are supposed to be and the neck felt unlike anything I ever played. Needless to say I could not afford the $3200 price tag on it. I went home and googled it and found out that PRS was releasing a new line of their SE models. I took a chance and ordered one before they were actually released.(I had to wait on them to be shipped from PRS to GC. It arrived yesterday and picked it up at Guitar Center. All I can say is this guitar blows away everything, I even compared it to the $3200 one still hanging in the store. The fit and finish is just as good and the fret work is impeccable. These 85/15 pickups sound better than the pickups in the $3200 one. This SE is a dream to play and sounds amazing, buy one you will not be disappointed. The fit and finish is better than my American Strat, Tele, Les Paul & SG. Now on a different note. This guitar will not sound like a Strat, Tele, Les Paul or an SG. It has its own beautiful voice. It's sounds full, warm and round. Never harsh, regardless of the position of the pickup selector. Also, when you split the pick ups, it actually sounds like a single coils and not like half of a humbucker. I love the easy access to the upper frets and yes frets 23 & 24 are actually playable. The bottom line is this guitar has great manners and is one of the best guitars that I've ever played. Buy one you will not regret it!

Comments about PRS SE Custom 24 Electric Guitar:

I have a 96 CE 24 and bought the 2017 SE because of the new 85/15 pickups. This guitar is just as good as my CE. The finish is not as good as an American PRS but it is well worth the money

Good price point guitar

By TVB

from midwest

Comments about PRS SE Custom 24 Electric Guitar:

I received my new PRS SE Custom 24 yesterday and I have to say it is a sharp looking and sounding guitar. The new pickups (85/15 S) are a huge improvement. I'm a big fan of the wide thin neck and the overall feel and playability. With that being said, I did have to take it in to my luthier for a complete setup including action, truss rod, and intonation adjustment. This isn't that uncommon for a new guitar, however, there were several frets that were either too low or too high causing a low E buzz all the way up the neck. This wasn't a huge deal but I didn't think I would need that kind of work done so soon. Overall its a great price point guitar but the "straight out of the box" setup advertised did not hold up. I would recommend this guitar if you have it set up as it plays and sounds excellent now.

SE oe CE?

By St. Louis Blues

About Me Experienced

Comments about PRS SE Custom 24 Electric Guitar:

I usually favor Gibson LP's but I bought a CE24 in cherry burst a few years ago and I love it! Then I saw the SE24 in Trampas Green and had to have it. It's gorgeous and it feels and sounds heavenly.
In all honesty, my CE and my SE are equal quality, I prefer to buy American but PRS makes it difficult with a $3000 price difference. I would recommend an SE over a CE' unless the CE is a Custom Shop. .

  • Good Pick Up
  • Good Tone
  • Solid Electronics
  • Somewhat Versitale

Cons

  • Fret Buzz
  • Poor Quality Craftsmanship
  • Unstable Tuning

Best Uses

  • Rock Concerts

Comments about PRS SE Custom 24 Electric Guitar:

Very good for modern/prog rock tones, lacking in moderate blues or clean tones. My g string is constantly going flat. Pickups are fairly high output. Still retains all the classic PRS tone you'd expect out of something more expensive, but only when playing rock. Doesn't get the nice clean tones like an S2 or CE.

Comments about PRS SE Custom 24 Electric Guitar:

Best guitar I have ever played! The wide-thin neck is smooth and perfect for me, and it is so easy to play. I would recommend everyone to at least try one of these fine guitars by PRS. The electronics are very good, crisp clean sound! Fit and finish is perfect, and no buzzing strings or intonation issues right out of the box.

    This is a great mid range/priced guitar to own. So happy that I purchased it! I've been playing music for over 30 years, and have owned everything from Les Pauls to SGs, and more. An excellent value, for a great product :-)

      Comments about PRS SE Custom 24 Electric Guitar:

      This by far the best guitar I have ever had! The last two guitars I've had, had tuning problems as the slotted nut was too high above the bridge. Also they were cheap and had fret problems. This guitar eliminated all those problems! Great tone knobs, it's easy to understand them and get the hang of them! I love this guitar and I would recommend this to my friends anytime!!!!
