Paul Reed Smith SE Custom 24 Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Get great tone, the PRS way
The combination of a mahogany body and maple top gives the SE Custom 24 a perfect balance of rich midrange and bright snap (and the beautiful flame maple top veneer helps make this instrument a real looker). Add HFS and Vintage Bass humbuckers in the bridge and neck positions, respectively, and you've got a recipe for some outstanding tones! The SE Custom 24's maple neck has a wide-thin carve, making it very fast and playable. And the distinctive neck joint means you can reach all 24 frets easily for stellar solos. The hardware is, as always, very stable and dependable. You can count on the PRS-designed tremolo bridge and tuners to keep the SE Custom 24 in tune while allowing you to express yourself at home, onstage, or in the studio.
A fitting addition to the PRS line
All Paul Reed Smith guitars are designed for top-notch performance, right out of the case and the SE Custom 24 is no exception. Constructed from top-notch tonewoods and components, PRS instruments carry on a commitment to quality that's been the brand's hallmark since 1985, when Paul Reed Smith himself started hand-building guitars for some of the most elite players in the world.

by Mikey Stevens from Richlands VirginiaThis guitar is completely amazing! This is my first nice guitar and is sure a fantastic upgrade! I have played guitars in local music stores that cost in the upper 1000 range and this guitar sounds ju... read more [+]st as good as them if not better. This guitar has so many tones to it. You can get an almost acoustic sound out of it, a thin or thick sound, and an even almost overdrive like sound from it also. It has a switch to go from humbuckers to single coil which makes a great addition. This guitar has been great for church because I never know what we are going to play and it is great to have a guitar that can do it all! The one and only downside to this guitar are the tuning machines. It stays in tune decently well. But if you use the whammy bar any then you will either go sharp or flat rather quickly. I'd recommend upgrading that part of the guitar just make sure you get tuning machines that will fit this guitar. Again this guitar is amazing and sounds fantastic. I will probably get another one in the future! close [-]

The purchasing through Sweetwater was also second-to-none. Being able to pick out the particular serial number from the pictures is amazing! close [-]
A Pure Beauty!
by Jeff from Fargo, NDGreat fit, feel, & finish.

I was a bit hesitant due to I haven't been a big fan of the neck dimensions of previous PRS models (I typically prefer Ibanez or ESP necks), however, the neck on this particular model is fantastically comfortable and allows your fingers to fly with ease.

I chose the Whale Blue model, and am extremely pleased I did. The finish is incredible, and the bird inlays are extremely well done. For this price range, this guitar represents a great value, feels empowering in your hands, and looks like a show-piece hanging on the wall.
This was the first purchase I've made from Sweetwater...but it will definitely not be my last. I'm thrilled with the level of customer service I've received, and the ability to see the actual pictures of the specific gear by serial number really gives good assurance to the consumer that they know exactly what they'll be getting....keep up the fantastic work guys!!! close [-]
