We picked out the wood of this guitar on a trip to the Maryland factory in November of 2017 as part of our Summer 24-08 run for 2018. Light bodies - This one weighs in at 8lbs- Brazilian boards and flame maple necks. Notice that the Gray to Black fade actually starts off natural and continues down the body of the guitar. The smoke black hardware is spooky. A star of an instrument.
The Custom 24 is the quintessential PRS guitar, the iconic instrument that started it all back in 1985. The Custom 24-08 keeps all the same foundational specifications as the original Custom – maple top, mahogany back and neck, 24 frets, 25” scale length, the PRS patented Gen III tremolo, and dual 85/15 pickups – but adds a new level of versatility with its simple switching system. Featuring mini-toggle coil tap switches (like the PRS 408 model), the Custom 24-08 has eight different pickup settings that provide an array of humbucking and singlecoil tones, including a dual singlecoil option unique for this model. For classic PRS playability, reliability, and tone with ultimate flexibility, check out the Custom 24-08.
