NEW PRS Custom 24 USA Core series electric guitar in Purple Iris +case
2022 model.
With PRS Hard case.

Chris (MD, Guitar Mania) says:
“If you have never played a PRS you’ve missed out! Way way way better, dollar for dollar, than ANY Gibson. Better in terms of build quality, feel and tone.
Every single member of staff here at Guitar Mania owns at least one PRS. Every single screw, nut and bolt is just better quality than many other brands. Spread the word! Lovely looking maple top, superb playability, it’s no wonder we all play them here.”

The first photo of the guitar is in natural light, it’s full of reflections and glare but shows the natural colour of this guitar quite well. The second is in my office in a slightly darker setting but less glare. Wood grain and colour can be tricky to capture for us ‘phone snapping’ amateur photographers.

Playability:
This guitar has been lovingly set up by Jon, one of the UK’s most highly regarded and experienced guitar techs.
That doesn’t mean this guitar is the best playing guitar ever, it just means that he has taken the time to set it up. Adjust the action, intonation etc so that it plays as well as can be expected. In this case it play remarkably well for an old guitar.
We all have differing styles and demands from our instruments. Some of us like fast n low actions for fretboard burning licks, others prefer a high n mightly action for show stopping windmills and downtuned heavy riffing and everything in between. No one set up suits all!
This specific guitar has been set up sympathetically for it’s era with a fairly low action, and minimal fret buzzing.

Priced with all of the above in mind but feel free to “make an offer”.

The One That Started It All

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 IIII 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.

The Custom 24 is the original PRS. Since its introduction, it has offered a unique tonal option for serious players and defined PRS tone and playability.
