This is a gorgeous Custom 24 from the very early days of Paul Reed Smith. The guitar was made in 1986, only a year after the company was founded. Features include a nitrocellulose lacquer cherry burst finish on an exceptional flamed maple top, mahogany body, a mahogany set-neck construction with a rosewood fretboard and PRS bird inlays, locking tuners, two PRS humbuckers, a master volume control with a 5-way rotary pickup switch, and a PRS "Sweet Spot" switch, which adds a slight "nasal" character to your tone. It sounds comparable to a wah pedal in the halfway position.
The neck on this Custom 24 has a narrow and profile around the first few frets, and becomes chunkier as you go up the neck. It feels great, and makes the guitar excellent for both rhythm and solo playing.
The guitar looks like it's been very well taken care of over the years. There are no deep scratches or dings to the body or top, just some surface scratches which don't break the finish, and some minor fretwear, neither of which affect the playability of this wonderful piece of PRS history.
