The Custom 24 is the quintessential PRS guitar. This iconic instrument was the first model that Paul Reed Smith brought to the public at PRS Guitars’ first Winter NAMM show in 1985 and has been a top seller ever since. Played by internationally touring artists, gigging musicians, and aspiring players, the Custom 24 features PRS’s patented tremolo system and PRS 85/15 treble and bass pickups with volume and tone controls and a 5-way blade switch. 85/15 pickups were personally designed by Paul Reed Smith for PRS’s 30th Anniversary. They offer remarkable clarity and extended high and low end.
The Custom 24 is the original PRS. Since its introduction, it has offered a unique tonal option for serious players and defined PRS tone and playability.
Guitarists looking for additional options, colors, and enhanced features can order a Custom 24 Artist Package.

So here we are, it’s October 2015 and we’re coming to the end of PRS’s 30th anniversary celebrations.
And to mark the occasion, we’re releasing a very special ‘Final Run’ edition of the stunning 30th Anniversary Custom 24 model – the classic PRS with tasty anniversary appointments including 85/15 humbuckers, rosewood veneer headstock inlay and fingerboard purfling.
The Final Run model (of which just 100 will be built) sticks closely to the original 30th anniversary Custom 24 blueprint, but is available (exclusively in Europe and Australia) in five amazing colours previously unavailable on the 30th anniversary Custom 24 – Burnt Maple Leaf, Charcoal, Fire Red Natural Back, Faded Blue Jean and Yellow Tiger. Each of the Final Run guitars will also be numbered and signed by Paul Reed Smith.
These little pieces of history are truly beautiful, incredible sounding guitars.
