PRS’ Custom 24-08 model keeps all the foundational specs of the best-selling Custom 24 intact, but takes the platform to new sonic territories. Like its Core Series counterpart, the SE Custom 24-08 features two mini-toggle coil-tap switches that individually split its humbuckers into true single-coils — for a total of eight pickup configurations. This makes it arguably one of the most versatile guitars on the market, at a fantastic price-point to boot!
Rich Mahogany Body
The stunning PRS SE Custom 24-08 boasts a Mahogany body, delivering a warm sound with plenty of harmonic richness in the mid-range. Adorned with an amazing Flamed Maple top veneer top, this instrument’s beauty is guaranteed to inspire you to pick it up and play for hours on end.
“Wide Thin” Neck
Joining the body is a bright-sounding Maple neck shaped to PRS’ contemporary “Wide Thin” profile. While the material adds plenty of top-end snap to give notes more immediacy, the unique neck carve provides an incredibly modern and playable feel. The neck is also topped with a silky smooth Rosewood fingerboard that offers a luxurious touch under the fingers.
Although this particular model may be a part of the affordable SE line, PRS spared no expense when it came to the instrument’s hardware appointments. The PRS Patented Molded Tremolo keeps things solid, with its beautifully-machined design offering a comfy feel and a smooth vibrato arm action. At the other end of the guitar you’ll find a set of PRS-designed machine heads that’ll keep your tuning super-stable too.
TCI “S” Pickups
The PRS SE Custom 24-08 features proprietary TCI “S” Treble and Bass pickups with two mini-toggle switches that allow you to put either or both pickups in humbucking or true single-coil modes — for a wide tonal palette. The clarity and unique characteristics of these vintage-inspired pickups are both big and nuanced, so that you can easily find your tonal sweet spot!
