Worth the wait
After playing an SE Tremonti for years, I finally took the plunge and purchased a USA Custom 24 in blue matteo. The SE was great to play, but this is on another level. Versatility in tone, action & feel of the neck, clear brilliance from the pickups, locking tuners, 5 way rotary toggle (a volume pot that is your pickup selector) I just want more now! I love this guitar to pieces. I'll surely get another and set it up for my low tuning songs, as switching between tuning can be difficult with the tremolo. I play it through a Blackstar 50 watt valve amp, with a simple pedal board including a Cry Baby, Tube Screamer, Wampler Ego Compression, Boss EQ and a GT6 in my FX Loop for the time and delay effects. It really can play any style. It has awesome sustain. I can't believe i didn't get one sooner.
One of the best sounding, most versatile, finest-crafted guitars ever made.
Yeah they look pretty, but that's just a perk. These guitars - especially the "10 top" issues like the one I had - are of the highest craftsmanship. Recommended to any player of any style who is serious about their craft. If you plan to display it as artwork, and never play it, do us all a favor and buy a poster instead. These are instruments which deserve to be used and loved. That is why I ended up selling mine after many gigs and studio sessions... I stopped playing my PRS after I got my endorsement from Holland Guitars, and received one-of-a-kind customs made specifically for me. Otherwise I would have never let my PRS go. It was definitely not inferior by any means.
A great mix of the sound of a Les Paul, and the comfort of a Strat.
The PRS custom 24 is an incredible guitar, I have owned mine for about 15 months now, and it is brilliant. It gets the really great Les Paul sound, but without the ridiculous weight. The body shape reminds me of the Fender Strat, which is great as I love the strat for it's comfort. The coil split that you can do on it with the unique five way blade switch means that you can get a wide range of tones. It sounds really great plugged into my dads old Marshall JCM 2000 for blues rock.
