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. Pairing this with a more traditional
combination of maple top, mahogany back, and rosewood fretboard helped
give the Custom 24 its signature look, feel, and tone. For three
decades, the Custom 24 has been a perennial favorite of musicians,
defining the playability and tone that PRS guitars are known for.
