The 30th Anniversary Custom 24 is specially appointed with a unique inlay pattern and commemorative truss rod cover to celebrate 30 years of PRS Guitars and the Custom 24 model. On this guitar, the wood has been hand selected by PRS Europe in October 2014, this guitar features a couple of changes from your typical stock CU24 such as an Ebony Fretboard & beautiful Birds Eye maple neck, this 30th Anniversary edition features the new 85/15 treble and bass pickups & the stunning quilted maple top is finished in a strikingly deep Charcoal Contour Burst which is naturally a 10 top! Designed personally by Paul Reed Smith in conjunction with the new 58/15 pickups for PRS’s 30th Anniversary year, 85/15’s are uncovered pickups with remarkable clarity and extended high and low end perfect for more modern applications. This blend of tradition and innovation mirrors the culture that PRS developed over the last three decades. The Custom 24 is the original PRS. When this guitar was introduced in 1985, the combination of a 24-fret, 25” scale length, dual humbucking, tremolo guitar was a distinctive configuration, offering players a new tonal option.
