Player's Perspective

Our most recent cherry-picking from PRS's in-stock list rendered this fine example of something that is a piece of art to look at, to play, and to listen to. Up for grabs here is a drop-dead beautiful PRS Artist Package Custom 24!

Aside from being stunningly beautiful and having a quilt (but with some flame qualities) maple top the quality of which you simply can't get on a non-Artist Package PRS, this guitar has some cool tonal attributes to it as well. The combination of the maple neck and the cocobolo fretboard make this a bit brighter and more snappy than a traditional all-mahogany (and rosewood fretboard) Custom 24. The cocobolo is frequently compared to the coveted Brazilian rosewood in terms of its tonal properties. The guitar will have a rich and warm midrange which will help it to cut through any mix. Thanks to this extra brightness and more focused attack, this will also handle any amount of distortion that you can think of with ease while still retaining a sweet and warm tone while playing clean. The 58/15 pickups are a bit vintage sounding, but still have a foot in the door of some modern sounds as well. The 3-way toggle switch + push/pull tone knob allows you to get some cool single coil tones out of this as well. It's a bit different than the standard 5-way blade switch in that you can use the neck pickup in single-coil mode alone, the bridge pickup in single-coil mode alone, or both pickups in single-coil mode (kind of like a Tele-style configuration). With the 5-way switch, the 2 single-coil options are neck single-coil and bridge humbucker or bridge single-coil and neck humbucker.

The pattern thin neck keeps playability a breeze and flying up and down the neck is truly effortless. The neck is made even more perfect by the simply impeccable fretwork on this guitar. Previously undiscovered musical ideas will jump off of the fretboard with this guitar. There's a very real thing that can happen when you pick up a guitar that is just so inspiring that it makes you a better player. This is one of those special instruments!

Special Features

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 Gen III tremolo system and PRS 58/15 pickups with volume and push/pull tone controls and a 3-way toggle switch.

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.
