Overview

The Custom 24 is the quintessential PRS guitar. This iconic instrument was the first model that Paul Reed Smith brought to the public at PRS Guitars’ first Winter NAMM show in 1985 and has been a top seller ever since. Played by internationally touring artists, gigging musicians, and aspiring players, the Custom 24 features PRS’s patented tremolo system and PRS 85/15 treble and bass pickups with volume and tone controls and a 5-way blade switch. 85/15 pickups were personally designed by Paul Reed Smith for PRS’s 30th Anniversary. They offer remarkable clarity and extended high and low end.

The Custom 24 is the original PRS. Since its introduction, it has offered a unique tonal option for serious players and defined PRS tone and playability.

10 top
A very small percent of the maple trees cut in North America are actually figured. To make "10-Top" status, a PRS top must have clearly defined figure across its entire top with no "dead" spots. A guitar designated as a 10-Top will usually have a small "10" written on the back of the headstock in the upper right corner. Some of our earlier guitars have the "10" stamped into the finish in the same position.

Pickup Switching Positions:
Position One: Bridge humbucker
Position Two: Bridge humbucker with neck singlecoil, in parallel 
Position Three: Bridge and neck humbuckers
Position Four: Neck singlecoil with bridge singlecoil, in parallel
Position Five: Neck humbucker

Comments about PRS Custom 24 Carved Flame Maple 10 Top with Nickel Hardware Solidbody Electric Guitar:

I've always been a Fender and Les Paul fan - never considered PRS... never even touched one. But the guy at GuitarCenter keep raving about his Custom 24. So on a whim I decided to try one. At first, the 24 frets felt strange. But after about 20 minutes, I began to understand. Solos that are way up high up on the neck on my other guitars are suddenly in a more easily reachable spot. The tone variations on the 5 way switch (it produces a combination of humbucker and single coli combinations) are all very distinct and all very playable. The finish is flawless as you might expect from PRS - and the neck (I opted for Pattern Regular) is the most comfortable and easy to play I've found tried in over 30 years of playing.
