PRS CE 24 - Faded Blue Smokeburst

Paul Reed Smith CE 24: Classic Bolt-on Feel with a Sound All its Own

Since the dawn of rock and roll, the snap and response that comes from a bolt-on neck guitar has been an essential part of the mix. These attributes have, in turn, become essential to many players trying to tell their story through music. The CE 24 pairs PRS's traditional body combination of the mahogany back and maple top with a bolt-on maple neck and rosewood fretboard.

Premium Build and Classic Design

The PRS CE 24 features a classic design with a maple top and mahogany back, providing a rich tonal foundation with excellent sustain and resonance. The bolt-on maple neck adds a distinct snap and clarity to the sound, while the rosewood fretboard with bird inlays offers a smooth and elegant playing surface. The Pattern Thin neck carve and satin nitro finish give this guitar a natural, addictive feel that enhances playability.

Superior Electronics for Versatile Tones

To maximize the guitar's inherent tone and clarity, the CE 24 is equipped with PRS 85/15 pickups, designed by Paul Reed Smith to deliver remarkable clarity and extended high and low end. The electronics include a volume control, a push/pull tone control, and a 3-way toggle switch, providing a total of six classic sounds. This versatile setup allows players to easily switch between different tones, making the CE 24 suitable for a wide range of musical styles.

High-Quality Hardware for Reliable Performance

The PRS CE 24 is built with high-quality hardware to ensure reliable performance. The PRS patented molded tremolo bridge offers smooth action and stable tuning, while the PRS low mass locking tuners provide precise tuning stability and quick string changes. The nickel hardware adds a sleek look and durability, making this guitar a reliable choice for both stage and studio.

A Guitar with Heritage and Modern Features

The original CE was introduced in 1988 and offered players PRS design and quality with the added snap and sparkle of traditional bolt-on guitars. The modern CE 24 continues this legacy, combining heritage with modern features to provide a guitar that is both classic and contemporary. Whether you're a seasoned performer or an aspiring musician, the CE 24 offers the playability and tonal versatility needed to tell your musical story.
