The Custom 24 is the instrument that started PRS back in 1985, so of course the Guitar of the Month program would not be complete without celebrating this model. Since its introduction, the Custom 24 has been a favorite of internationally-touring artists, gigging musicians, and aspiring players who demand quality, reliability, and versatility. The Custom 24 features PRS’s patented tremolo system, PRS Phase III locking tuners, and dual humbuckers with volume and tone controls and a 5-way blade switch.
Some unique appointments for the Guitar of the Month include a wenge neck with ebony fingerboard, paua heart, green ripple abalone, and mother of pearl Lotus Knot fingerboard inlays, green ripple abalone Private Stock Eagle with mother of pearl outlines and “October” engraved banner on the headstock veneer, mother of pearl side dots, Sage Glow Smoked Burst high gloss nitro finish, and 58/15 LT treble and bass pickups.
Only twenty of these instruments will be made for October 2016, commemorating Private Stock’s 20th Anniversary. Includes hardshell case.
