The Custom 24 is the original PRS…the guitar Paul Reed Smith took to his first tradeshow in 1985. A perennial favorite with musicians, this model features Pattern Thin mahogany neck (with a rosewood neck option) and 57/08 pickups wired for the PRS redesigned 5-way blade switch, which offers a dual humbucker option for the first time (see switching positions below).
In 2008, PRS introduced 57/08 pickups, which were designed to capture a vintage ‘50’s humbucking tone. The 57/08's were an instant success and are now the most asked for PRS Pickups that we sell.
