The Custom 24 is what started it all for PRS. First introduced on the 1985 NAMM show and has since then with it's 24 frets and 25" scale been a trusty companion for guitarists world over. Today the Custom can be found in many different versions - The Custom 22 is a 22 fret guitar and has a bit warmer and more rounded tone compared to the more articulate Custom 24. Both the Custom 24 and the Custom 22 can also be equipped with a LR Baggs piezo system for added versatility.
For the hard rocking dive bombers out there, the Custom 24 Floyd is the guitar for you. Original Floyd Rose tremolo, a satin maple neck with ebony fretboard and high output pickups makes the Custom 24 Floyd Rose a dangerous weapon in the right hands.
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.
