Overview

The SE Standard 24 is a fresh take on PRS' hallmark model: the Custom 24. Updated here with an all-mahogany body, the SE Standard 24 is a modern instrument with a powerful voice. This guitar features classic PRS appointments, including a 24-fret mahogany neck (set neck construction), rosewood fretboard with bird inlays, and a PRS-Designed tremolo.

The SE Standard 24 pairs the warm, round tone of an all-mahogany guitar with PRS-Designed HFS and Vintage Bass pickups, resulting in a guitar that handles well and sounds as good plugged straight into an amp as it does run through a pedal board. The SE Standard 24 is the perfect choice players who demand a rock-solid, reliable guitar.

Since 2001, the SE Series has been offering incredible quality and great tone at affordable prices. The introduction of the SE Standard models represents a significant extension of the SE Series into the <$500 price point. The goal of the SE Series has always been to provide a quality instrument to players of all levels one that would not fight the player, but encourage him or her to start and to keep playing. PRS is proud to extend this promise to an even more attainable price point with the SE Standard lineup.

It turns out, qualities I liked about my other guitars over the years were present in the PRS 24. I put a warmoth vintage modern neck on my Tele. (feels a LOT like PRS's wide thin neck). My first was a Strat that played fine, but doesn't come close to the fit & finish, playability and design of the PRS. Don't get me wrong, the Strat was the bees knees when it first came out, but Paul's design is an improvement in every way. I also like the fact that it's not imitating another guitar. A PRS sounds like a PRS. Excellent choice to keep beginners from getting frustrated with their instrument. It also plays better than some $2000 guitars I've played. They're going to sell a LOT of these.

Bought this for a student, who was happy with it. I was not impressed. Uneven frets. File marks in the fret board. Strings that obviously have been sitting in a warehouse for MONTHS. This was the second go 'round, too. The first was much worse...Cosmetic flaws that were sickening. Sent it back. (Thanks Andre) Quality control on the Standards is non-existent. Do yourself a great big fat favor if you want a PRS... AT LEAST move up to the Custom SE models. The difference is night and day. Got one of those in a GC store (also owned by MF company) and the thing is outstanding. Of the SE Standard, Chappers and The Captain said... "great value." Bloody mad, the both of them. Just... No... Mow lawns, clean windshields, walk dogs... but spend the additional 250 and go Custom. The very expensive PRS guitars are indeed fine instruments, worth every dime... the cheap ones...not so much. If all you buy is sub-grand guitars, and you have some luthier skills, you could make this work, as it really doesn't sound as terrible as it looks. It is not, however, worth the lower price tag. Trust me... I have owned guitars since the 1970's. Spend the money. Regret is a nagging pain in the but-tox that never goes away.

      i am experienced guitarist and i have played them all. A friend told me try a PRS and i got one and was blowed away. I can get low action and it has a great sound and feel. So i believe that will be my choice of guitars from here on out.

          Comments about PRS SE Standard 24 Electric Guitar:

          I have been a guitarist for more decades than I care to mention, and this might be the finest guitar I've ever played. The quality, right out of the box, was obvious.
          The finish of my translucent blue Standard 24 is beautiful. The intonation spot on. The neck is slim and fast with no buzz. The pickups are sweet and powerful in both humbucker and single coil modes. Switch and pots are great, as are the keys. I can't say enough great things about this beautiful instrument!
          I've been a Gibson Les Paul and Fender Strat man all my life, and this beauty does it all. If yours is on back order, be patient, it is so well worth the wait!
          Daniel was great at Musicians Friend with my order. Knowledgeable and friendly. I have zero complaints about my experience with them, or this beautiful guitar.
          Buy one... at least!!!

          Fantastic Guitar Value

          from RI

          About Me Experienced

          Comments about PRS SE Standard 24 Electric Guitar:

          FANTASTIC.
          Issues (non- issues given extremely fair pricing):

          Set-up of instrument quite a bit off (Many Indonesian guitars)
          Pick-ups centered boldly in midrange, with bass clarity and treble "ring" sub-par.
          This is non-the-less a fantastic guitar. Some may want their pickup response squarely in that range, the you have a set-up needing masterpiece.
          General workmanship flawless as I seen it.

              Comments about PRS SE Standard 24 Electric Guitar:

              I went through many kinds of electric guitars.. squier, fender, gretsch, epiphone and china gibson... finally I arrived on PRS guitar section and I really love it... The guitar is not that heavy compared to other guitars such as les paul... pickups are nice, the feeling of grip is really nice. I was conflicting between epiphone semi-hollow body (es339 pro) and seraph.. but when I played this PRS guitar, I just put them down .. This guitar's sounds just beat them all.. when seraph was much more expensive. I can guarantee that people who buy this would not really regret. This guitar is worth like 1000 dollars.. do not be afraid to get it because of its low price. I use this guitar for church playing, and its great sustainability makes me more energetic while playing. Thank you.

              *Hope my opinion somehow can boost your mind to pick this guitar.
