Contrary to popular belief, electric guitars are an instrument that requires you to master two very different things. One is, of course, the playing technique, but the other is utilizing the hardware of that guitar and that of the amplifier in order to dial in a great tone.
The PRS Custom 24 appeals to both diehard Fender and Gibson players, as it combines the Les Paul-like tone and sustain of a mahogany body and an elegantly figured maple top with a double-cutaway Strat-style body shape, and sports a 25 string length that comes in midway between the standard Fender 25-1/2 and Gibson's 24-3/4. The 24-fret neck provides two full octaves of fretboard to explore, and the PRS-designed humbuckers deliver plenty of pure, creamy sustain or down and dirty crunch. There are different options available depending on model, including a PRS-designed whammy system, various coil-splitting switching options, and a staggering array of stunning finishes to match any aesthetic. The model range includes the moderately-priced SE, or Student Edition line, the standard Custom 24 line, and the top-of-the-line Private Stock guitars, with high-end appointments like a Private Reserve eagle inlay of mammoth ivory on the headstock, curly maple body binding, and gold hardware. The SE line is crafted in Korea to exacting PRS specifications, and delivers excellent quality and playability at student-friendly prices. The standard Custom 24 is now available with the PRS Artist Package, which offers an expanded range of Private Stock appointments like top-grade flame or quilt maple tops and premium Mexican ebony fingerboards, to deliver a truly stunning guitar at a player-friendly price. On the surface, they all share the same painstaking attention to detail, uncompromising quality and elegant appearance that PRS guitars are known for, characterized by the distinctive flying bird fingerboard inlays and headstock shape. Dig in with your favorite chops and you'll hear the rich tone and singing sustain that powers artists like Alex Lifeson from Rush, Dave Navarro, and Neil Schon, among thousands of others. Whatever PRS Custom 24 you choose, you will be rewarded with a guitar that looks magnificent, plays like a dream, and will help you fulfill yours. Order yours today.

It is a beautiful guitar, it played well out of the box, Pickups sound really good, The coil splitting provides a good single coil sound. It is a great sounding and playing guitar. I must say that I was a little apprehensive about the 'thin narrow' neck (my other guitars all have rather 'chunky' necks which I actually prefer) but with all the great reviews on line, I figured it was well worth the risk. Much to my surprise, and delight, the neck feels perfect!
