The Return of the CE

The new-and-improved PRS CE 24 brings you the snappy attack, woody tones, and American twang of a bolt-on maple neck at an appealing PRS price point. The CE 24's 85/15 pickup set and updated switching system let you blaze through its versatile tone options onstage, which range from hard-rock humbucker overdrive to sensuous single-coil leads. The CE 24's fast maple neck glides through the hand for seamless transitions between upper and lower frets, and its rosewood fingerboard provides the kind of balanced articulation veteran PRS players are sure to love.

PRS CE 24 Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Irresistible looks and playability
  • Bolt-on maple neck captures the excitement of the original
  • Versatile 85/15 pickups for 6 humbucker/single-coil sounds
Irresistible looks and playability

Time-tested PRS tonewoods - a balanced mahogany body, designer maple top, and velvety rosewood fingerboard - with a fast new maple neck give the CE 24 a warm and balanced sound with a look you won't be able to keep your hands off. Sweetwater guitarists are big on the CE 24's thinner body and more comfortable top carve, which feel great against the wrist and forearm for strumming.

Bolt-on maple neck captures the excitement of the original

Fans of the original CE series from the 1980s to the 2000s will feel right at home playing the updated PRS CE 24's bolt-on maple neck. The CE 24 plays a lot like a Custom 24, but has a woodier attack and sharper bite you can really dig into. Whether you play blues leads or rock 'n' roll rhythms, Sweetwater guitarists are sure the PRS CE 24 has a sound for you.

Versatile 85/15 pickups for 6 humbucker/single-coil sounds

Modern-voiced with vintage characteristics, the CE 24's coil tapped humbuckers sound great for rock and pop, indie, metal, or punk. A push-pull pot lets you transition from scorching metal leads to sweet California twang on the fly.

PRS-24 Ruby Red

I had been looking for a slimmer neck like my Fender Strat and a meatier sound like my Gibson 335. BIngo. Found it with this PRS CE-24. Got a great deal through your sales representative and have been playing guitar for 50 years and can't put this guitar down. Lots of music in this one. First PRS purchase and very thankful to have found this one.Sincerely;Jim

Great guitar.

This is a great guitar right out of the box with one exception. The stock PRS tuners are terrible! You would think for this price you would get some decent tuners but these locking tuners leave a lot to be desired. I have installed Grover Roto-matic locking tuners and wow what a difference. These tuners did require some drilling as they are not a pin style but screw mount. The coil splitting switch gives you almost any sound you want from humbucker to single coil. I use the extra fret length all the time with great intonation up and down the neck. If you want a very versatile guitar that can emulate many different pick-up configurations this is it. You can get all the tones you need from one guitar.
