The PRS 2018 SE Custom 24 Spalted Maple Electric Guitar in Vintage Sunburst has the look and feel of a boutique-level model, yet squeaks in at an astonishingly affordable price tag for a guitar of its calibre. Bestowed with the same appointments and features as the legendary Custom 24, this exotic top model is a dream model for anyone from a beginner to a seasoned pro. Whether you're rocking out at home to yourself, or wowing crowds on the stadium stage, the PRS 2018 SE Custom 24 Spalted Maple will exceed your expectations, and then some!
Classic body contours
The 2018 SE Custom 24 Spalted Maple bears the same slender, ergonomically-shaped features of the Custom 24, which has won over many players around the world since its release. The deep double-cutaway profile ensures improved upper-fret access, whilst the slim body depth establishes a figure-hugging feel. The gentle rolled arched top offers a comfortable resting position for the picking arm, removing any obstacles to give you a delightfully free-flowing feel. The top has been treated with a Spalted Maple veneer, which offers boutique-like beauty without the hefty price tag.
The body back is built using mahogany, a tonewood that is favoured by many due to its luxurious mid-range output that is infused with warmth. Paired with this is a maple top, which cuts through with a delightfully articulate high-end that rounds out the output beautifully. Whether you're playing chunky chords, artful arpeggios, lightning fast legato, or intricate two-hand tapping, the Custom 24 responds to both fingerstyle and flat-picking with the utmost grace.
Generous scale length
Paired with the body is a sturdy maple neck, which is shaped to PRS' customary wide thin neck profile. The comfortable playability and tonal delivery that makes the Custom 24 such a prized model, owes much to the neck's 25-inch scale length. Designed to infuse harmonic richness with warmth and a string response that is the stuff of dreams. From silky smooth scale runs to emphatic string bends, there is a reason why, so many pros turn to the Custom 24 as their guitar of choice. Paired with the neck is a heavenly fingerboard, which is home to 24 frets that are decorated with PRS' birds inlay.
The 2018 SE Custom 24 Spalted Maple is equipped with a pair of PRS 85/15 "S" pickups in the neck and bridge positions. These humbuckers sing sweetly with crisp cleans, and when given a nudge, they burn brightly with a searing heat. They're perfect for tackling any musical style, and have enough versatility to keep your dynamic shifting on point. Control over the pickups comes in the form of master volume and tone controls, as well as a three-way pickup selector switch.
The master tone pot is equipped with push/pull coil-split capabilities, allowing you to pull single-coil tones from this beauty. The extended range of tonal options allows to move seamlessly between genres with the greatest of ease, putting total control at your fingertips.
The PRS 2018 SE Custom 24 Spalted Maple Electric Guitar is fitted with a PRS-patented moulded tremolo, which anchors each string securely for fastidious intonation and sustain. Your vibrato technique is translated transparently, with the trem returning to position efficiently for a consistent and highly responsive feel. The headstock is home to PRS-designed tuners, which uphold tuning integrity dutifully throughout the most enthusiastic of performances.
