    PRS Custom 24 - McCarty Tobacco Burst

    If you are wondering if this guitar lives up to the hype, or is worth the expense. The answer is YES!. The level of craftsmanship and attention to detail is astounding. I took it out of the box, that by the way was expertly packed by Sweetwater, and did a slight touch tune on the G string, and it was ready to go. Perfectly set up, perfectly intonated, and played like butter. It immediately felt like I had been playing it for years. You have to play one to understand what I mean. Everything about this guitar it top notch, even the case. Which, by the way is heavier than the guitar. I have been playing off and on for over 30 years, and have owned or played all of the top guitars out there. Nothing compares to a PRS. Trust me. It sounds amazing through my Hot Rod Deluxe. It really has a voice of it's own. Not an imitation of Gibson or Fender. It sounds like a PRS. The 59/09 humbuckers can do just about anything you need them to. If you are on the fence, jump off and buy this thing.

    PRS Custom 24

    Beautiful guitar and very easy to play all the way to the 24th fret. This guitar has very good sustain, sounds great and stays in tune when using the whammy bar. I also have a Gibson Traditional Les Paul and the PRS is a lot lighter which makes it more comfortable for your shoulder. If you're in the market for a Les Paul or Fender, I would suggest you check this guitar out first before you buy any other guitar. The customer service was great and I will be using Sweetwater for any future purchases.

    A truly inspiring guitar!

    I have owned many high end guitars and my new Custom 24 is far beyond the others as far as build quality, tone, finish, feel, well just about everything even down to the smallest detail. If you are stuck between getting a PRS or a Gibson, Fender, etc. Go with PRS you won't regret it!

    I ordered this from Sweet water and blown away with the quality of service and this instrument. I was looking to get Suhr vs Music man vs PRS and i am glad i took the right decision. I am used to play thin Ibanez necks but this PRS Pattern thin neck feels like home. The quality of instrument is amazing and PRS known for their super craftsmanship and tone. I am very happy with my purchase.

    I bought one of these a few weeks ago and I am totally happy with it. It has excellent clear acoustic sounds, rock rhythms, and with the proper effects an intense Santana like lead tone that I love. It arrived perfectly set up with great action. It stays in tune and is perfectly balanced. No hums or noise problems. Its much more fun to play than my Strat. The 24 frets are very helpful- I was afraid the really high notes would be too squeaky but they are not. Two full octaves provides more playing room and makes the whole guitar more comfortable. I ordered it on a Thursday morning and Sweetwater shipped it that afternoon. It arrived the following Tuesday. It looks exactly like the picture- I thought the colors might different but they are not. I was apprehensive about spending so much money to buy a guitar that I had never played, but it worked out perfeclty. I am really glad I did it.
