Player's Perspective

The guitar industry hasn't been the same since the Custom 24 was introduced some 30 years ago. It's always been a versatile, blazing axe, but PRS has souped it even more as of late by offering this metal-ready Custom 24 "Floyd". This one, being an Artist Package guitar from Paul Reed Smith contains some particularly beautifully figured pieces of wood.

The "Floyd" has everything that's kept this model in this limelight for so long - that slinky, effortless fretboard feel, unmatched aesthetics, and impeccable craftsmanship throughout. But this version adds a Floyd Rose bridge and hotter pickups that will push your pedals and your amp hard. The result is a scorching hot axe that blends unsurpassed PRS quality with more shred-happy freedom, a perfect combination for a lot of players. This instrument is particularly impressive for its ability to retain a distinct, well defined tonal identity regardless of the volume or amount of gain. Push the distortion all you want - it'll still sound like itself, and you'll still sound like you.

Along with an absolutely gorgeous artist grade flame maple top, the figuring on the neck is absolutely stunning and almost has a holographic effect that changes the flames that pop out depending on the angle that you look at it. Not only do the entire neck, fretboard, and headstock look awesome with all that flame figuring on it, but the satin maple feels amazing on your fretting hand. The maple fretboard also lends itself a bit better to the high-gain, shredder style of playing as it will add some more treble and top-end sizzle to your tone which will help keep your sound articulate and clear even when heavily ladened with distortion.

 

If you love the Custom 24 but need more trem arm freedom, some hotter pickups, and the best aesthetics and build quality that PRS has to offer short of going through the Private Stock department, then this is your axe.

Special Features

The Core “Floyd” Custom 24 is equipped with the time-tested Floyd Rose “Original” tremolo system and PRS’s \m/ (metal) pickups (uncovered). The Floyd Rose “Original” tremolo and locking nut tuning system, is a double-locking design precision-made from high quality steel, allows players to lock the guitar in tune at the nut and at the bridge which keeps the guitar in tune even during the heaviest dive-bombing sessions. 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. This one, being an Artist Package guitar, does contain a few unique features such as an upgraded artist grade flame maple top and a heavily figured artist grade flame maple neck and fretboard.
