PRS Paul Reed Smith CE 24 Semi-Hollow Bolt-On Guitar, Satin Grey Black, Rosewood Fretboard

$2,399.00

Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to offer up this new (in 2019) addition to PRS's CE lineup! Now you can save a few bucks, get the extra snappiness of the bolt-on maple neck, and add to it the sweetness and warmth of a semi-hollow tone!

At this point, Paul Reed Smith's Custom 24 design has become an integral part of guitar history and the modern electric guitar sound. With the advent of the CE 24, PRS was able to introduce a spin on the Custom 24 that was more than just a way of cutting costs to offer up a less expensive guitar. There are genuine differences that, depending on what sound you're going for, will be advantages with one of these. The most notable is the bolt-on construction, which is not shared by any of the other PRS guitars in the CORE line up. The neck is all maple and is bolted onto the body which really adds a good amount of brightness, snappiness, and what I like to call "spank" to your notes. Without being shrill or piercing, the top end of this guitar is very pronounced.

Making this one different than the regular CE 24 is a sweet semi-hollow build that naturally scoops out some of the midrange in the guitar and provides a tone that is smooth, round, rich in harmonics, but yet still versatile enough to handle saturation while maintaining articulation.

Manufacturer's Description

Combining the snap and sustain of a bolt-on guitar with the airy resonance of a semi-hollow body, the CE 24 Semi-Hollow is a truly unique addition to 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.
