The Iconic Paul Reed Smith Custom 24

The One That Started It All

Witness the legacy of the Paul Reed Smith Custom 24, the guitar that revolutionized the industry when it made its debut at the Winter NAMM show in 1985. Since then, it has remained a favorite among musicians worldwide, from internationally touring artists to aspiring players. Featuring PRS's patented Gen III tremolo system and 85/15 pickups designed by Paul Reed Smith himself, this iconic instrument offers remarkable clarity, extended tonal range, and unparalleled playability. With volume and tone controls and a 5-way blade switch, the Custom 24 provides versatile sonic options suitable for any musical style.

Classic Design, Timeless Tone

Crafted with a solid maple top and mahogany back, the Custom 24 boasts a violin carve that adds to its aesthetic appeal and sonic resonance. Its one-piece mahogany neck with a pattern thin profile ensures comfortable playability across all 24 frets, while the rosewood fretboard adorned with PRS's signature bird inlays exudes elegance and craftsmanship. The set neck/body assembly enhances sustain and resonance, allowing each note to ring out with clarity and definition.

Precision Hardware and Electronics

Equipped with PRS's Gen III tremolo bridge and Phase III locking tuners, the Custom 24 offers rock-solid tuning stability and precise intonation, even during the most aggressive performances. The 85/15 pickups deliver a balanced response with exceptional clarity, capturing every nuance of your playing style. With intuitive volume and tone controls and a 5-way blade pickup switch, you can easily dial in your desired tones, whether you're seeking crisp cleans, dynamic crunch, or soaring leads.
