PRS 2018 Core Custom 24 10-Top in Satin Charcoal Cherry Burst The One That Started It All

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 Gen III tremolo system and PRS 85/15 pickups with volume and tone controls and a 5-way blade switch. 85/15 pickups were personally designed by Paul Reed Smith to offer remarkable clarity and extended high and low end.

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.

This seriously beautiful guitar is in excellent condition and has undergone a full setup and inspection from our in-house luthier. The neck is nice and straight, fits comfortably in the hand and exhibits only very gentle fretwear. Cosmetically, the finish on the face of the instrument is pristine. There is a very small imperfection near the binding on the treble side cutaway, a small very shallow ding on the back of the body near the plate, and several superficial scuffs to the satin back, most notably on the treble side edge, all of which can be easily seen in photos. 

Comes with original hard shell case. 

As always, this guitar ships fully insured with signature required.
