The PRS SE Standard 24 electric guitar combines everything we've come to expect from the team at PRS including: choice tonewood appointments, superb build quality, smooth playability, and beautiful tones. With over 30 years of experience in crafting guitars to a consistently high standard of quality, with the responsibility for build signature models for guitar legends like Carlos Santana and Alex Lifeson, PRS has poured that knowledge into the SE Standard 24.
The PRS SE Standard 24 body profile is very slim, which makes it lightweight and a joy to perform with. The bevelled top creates a comfortable resting position for the picking arm, and kindly stays out of the way when you wish to dig in and play fast. The foundation of the guitar's enviable tonality comes from the sumptuous mahogany tonewood, which produces powerful tones that are infused with warmth. When pushed gently, the body yields crisp highs; when pushed hard it issues a much meatier tone that is suited to aggressive, overdriven rock and metal.
The neck is built from mahogany, creating a supportive playing feel. Shaped to the slender "wide-thin" profile, the neck is suited to players who're looking for a fast-playing action for performing intricate fretboard gymnastics. Paired with the neck is a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard, adorned with customary PRS Bird position inlays to provide a unique navigational aid. The double-cutaway profile ensures that each and every part of the neck and fingerboard is within easy reach.
The complex tonality of the mahogany is translated exquisitely by the pairing of SE HFS and Vintage Bass pickups - fitted in the bridge and neck positions respectively. Control is simple thanks to the minimal switch layout that includes: a master volume pot, a master tone pot with push/pull switch, and a 3-way pickup selector switch. The pickup selector switch allows you to "solo" either pickup, or select both simultaneously for a fuller, fatter output. The setup may be simplistic in design, but you'll be pleased with the range of tonal complexity offered by the setup. Whether you play Jazz, Funk, Rock, Metal, Country, etc. this guitar is as versatile as you could ever hope for it to be. Extending the already impressive tonal offering, the tone pot's push/pull switch allows you to coil-tap the humbuckers, extracting single-coil tones for a much grittier response.
The body has been fitted with a PRS tremolo, which acts as a secure anchor for the strings, to create a seamless connection between each string and the body - beneficial for optimum sustain and accurate intonation -, whilst allowing you to perform elegant vibrato or dramatic dive-bombs. The nut carries out the task of upholding string tension perfectly, whilst the tuning machines uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision.
The PRS SE Standard 24 electric guitar has been treated to a cool tobacco sunburst finish. A PRS SE gigbag is included to protect your new model, encouraging you to get out and play as soon as it arrives.
