Classic body contours
The 2018 SE Floyd Custom 24 is built with a mahogany back to establish the guitar's rich mid-range tonal foundation. The slender body depth gives it a lightweight, figure-hugging feel that makes it a joy to wield for hours on end. Paired with the mahogany is a beautifully bevelled maple top, which is where the PRS Custom 24's coveted comfortable playing feel comes into its own, creating a sweet resting position for the picking arm. Whether you're playing in a seated or a standing position your arm can move freely. The maple rounds out the mids and highs to ensure a well-rounded tonal palette to play around with. Not only that, but the flame maple veneer enriches the visual aesthetic by allowing the natural grain to shine for all to admire.
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 Floyd 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 Floyd Custom 24 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.
Floyd Rose tremolo
The clue is obviously in the name with regard to the Floyd Custom 24, immediately drawing attention to the fitting of the Floyd Rose tremolo system. Often associated with rock and metal players, the Floyd Rose bridge allows emphatic dives and piercing wailing to be executed, pushing the limits much further than PRS' standard vintage tremolo. However, the Floyd Rose suits players across any genre, who would to precise control over their vibrato technique, giving their creativity license to go wild. At the top of the neck you'll find locking nuts, which ensure that no matter how much you abuse the strings, the bridge will return to first position efficiently, ready to go again and again.
The headstock is home to PRS designed tuning machines, which work alongside the Floyd Rose to uphold tuning integrity dutifully.
