The PRS 2018 SE Standard 24 Electric Guitar borrows the sophisticated body profile and design of the illustrious Custom 24, whilst offering peerless quality at a more affordable price. From the sleek ergonomically-designed curves and peerless tonal versatility, the SE Standard 24 is ideal for those just starting out, but is equally at home in the hands of a pro on the stadium stage. Whether you're developing and honing your skills, or are a master of your craft, the PRS 2018 SE Standard 24 electric guitar will always keep you coming back for more.
Beautiful body profile
If you didn't know already, PRS know a thing or two about building beautiful instruments, and the SE Standard 24 is just as delightful. Built using mahogany, the body establishes a confident mid-range tonal foundation with warmth by the bucket-load. Whatever style of music that you're performing, from clean country licks to aggressive hard rock, the Standard 24 can navigate genres with ease thanks to its versatile tonal palette.
As with the Custom 24 body shape, the body features a slightly arched top with gently bevelled edges. Coupled with a slender body depth, the guitar is afforded a figure-hugging feel that makes it a sheer delight to perform with. The double-cutaway features a deep rout to the lower bout to achieve improved access to the upper frets, sparing your fingers from having to over extend to reduce discomfort. Completing the superb body construction is a heavenly finish.
Highly playable neck
Joined to the body is PRS' classic bound maple neck, which is shaped to their customary wide thin profile. Whether you're performing rhythmic chord changes or lightning fast lead licks, the neck couldn't be any more accommodating, encouraging you ever step of the way. Thanks to the binding, the fretting hand is assured seamless transitions along the entire length of the 25-inch scale neck - so designed as to create the perfect balance between playability and tone. Married to the neck is a gorgeous fingerboard, which is home to 24 frets that are adorned with PRS' unique Birds inlay pattern to guide your way in style.
The PRS 2018 SE Standard 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.
The body has been fitted with a PRS patented tremolo, which anchors each string to optimise intonation and sustain to give your tone breadth and depth. Performing subtle vibrato technique is a breeze, with an adjustable tone arm that can be as fixed or as loose as you wish. The headstock is home to PRS designed tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with precision to ensure that each and every performance retains tight control throughout.
