PRS SE Custom 24 Roasted Maple Limited Edition Tone

The roasted maple not only looks good, but it adds a great deal of resonance to the guitar as well. The PRS 85/15 "S" humbuckers compliment the tonewood characteristics very well and give you crisp and pristine tone whether clean or overdriven. The push-pull tone control for coil tapping gives the guitar even more tonal versatility. Even when split, the 85/15 S pickups sound full-range and dynamic.

PRS SE Custom 24 Roasted Maple Limited Edition Feel

The PRS SE Custom 24 Roasted Maple model feels like a custom-tailored instrument. Keeping with all of the foundational specifications found in a Custom 24 model, this one includes a maple top, mahogany back, Wide Thin maple neck, 24 frets, 25” scale length, which all contribute to the premium feel of this guitar. Whether strumming through power chords or alternate picking through modal progressions, this guitar holds no resistance. The Wide Thin profile is perfect for players who like guitars with a modern feel, the wide shoulders give you something to hold onto while not being to baseball-bat like that would hinder fast legato runs.

Why We Like It

The PRS SE Custom 24 feels stable and stays in tune, but even better than that - it looks absolutely stunning! The figured maple veneers on this run look out of this world. The maple neck compliments all of the available finishes incredibly well. It's not like PRS is any stranger to making attractive guitars but at this price-point, the value is immeasurable.
