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 tremolo system and PRS 85/15 treble and bass pickups with volume and tone controls and a 5-way blade switch. 85/15 pickups were personally designed by Paul Reed Smith for PRS’s 30th Anniversary. They offer remarkable clarity and extended high and low end. This model features an upgraded top and a pattern thin neck profile.
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. Includes hardshell case.

I've had mine since 2012 (charcoal burst). It still retains the beautiful look and playability. Sound is amazing on any amp. I don't have any guitar envy ever. Every time I play something at the store or anywhere else, I always think that the guitar sucks compared to the PRS custom 24.
