Way back in 1985, master luthier and guitarist Paul Reed Smith introduced a six-string that would not only launch his company, but would also become the quintessential axe for many famous recording artists. Of course, we could only be talking about the PRS Custom 24 - a guitar that, to this day, can easily be found in local clubs, major concert halls and prestigious recording studios around the world. As Carlos Santana said himself, "...having the right guitar in your hands gives you clarity of certainty and confidence" - and make no mistake about it, the PRS Custom 24 will provide you with just that.
While some guitars are more suited to certain genres than others, the great thing about PRS guitars is that they're ideal for a seemingly endless range of musical styles. With that in mind, the Custom 24 is a testament to the company's dedication to versatility, and any model in this selection would make that obvious the second you begin playing it.
Need a place to start your search? Go with the original Custom 24 Electric Guitar. Featuring the company's patented tremolo system, PRS 59/09 treble and bass pickups and available in 6 new maple top colors, the Custom 24 boasts the looks and the tone you need to make a name for yourself in the club circuit (if you haven't already). Or, if you want a Custom 24 with some modern enhancements, check out the Custom 24 Quilted Male 10-Top Electric Guitar. Featuring a Floyd Rose bridge, PRS's uncovered \m/ pickups and a "Pattern Thin" neck (an updated version of PRS's Traditional Wide Thin neck), this model is a stunning upgrade to the solid body that made Paul Reed Smith so respected in the music world. These two Custom 24s also come with durable and stylish hard shell cases, so take your pick.
And don't forget, this catalog is loaded to the brim with other Custom 24s, and every single one is worthy of your attention. After all, we're talking about the flagship model of a company that's trusted by Dave Navarro, Vernon Reid, Dave Matthews and countless others - if that isn't a reason to give these guitars a closer look, we don't know what is.
