Free 2-Day Shipping


We're proud to present this PRS CE 24 in a gorgeous Fire Red Burst finish! The CE 24 is one of our favorite guitars in the PRS lineup, and for good reason. 

As all PRS fans know, the Custom 24 is the original guitar that Paul took to his first tradeshow in '85, and it's become PRS's flagship model as one of the most perfect guitars built. For players who loved the Custom 24 but wanted something that could achieve a brighter and snappier tone reminiscent of the bolt-on maple-necked guitars of the '50s and '60s, PRS decided to go ahead and make a bolt-on version of their flagship guitar that also happens to be at a more affordable price point than the set-neck counterpart.

As you might expect from a company as dedicated to the craft as PRS, they've hit the nail on the head in achieving a guitar that costs less than the PRS Core guitars without any compromise to the sound or inherent qualities that make the Custom 24 silhouette great. Featuring more snap and top-end bite than the set-neck version, this guitar really combines the best of the major archetypes of the guitar world.

These also feature PRS's incredible 85/15 pickups. These pickups are clear, articulate and modern while remaining supremely versatile for any genre of music, especially with the masterfully-designed PRS coil-split system.

This may very well become your favorite new PRS!


Combining the snap and sustain of a bolt-on guitar with the tonal qualities of the traditionally set-necked Custom 24, the CE 24 is a truly unique pillar of the PRS Bolt-On lineup. The body pairs the traditional combination of a mahogany back and maple top with a bolt-on maple neck and rosewood fretboard. The neck features a Pattern Thin carve and satin nitro finish for a natural, addictive feel. The electronics consist of a volume and push/pull tone control with a 3-way toggle switch, giving a total of six classic sounds from the PRS 85/15 pickups.

The original CE was introduced in 1988, offering players traditional PRS design and quality with the added snap and sparkle of a bolt-on guitar.
