Go Old School To Get High Marks For Tone - Chuck Levin's 60th Anniversary Edition PRS CE 24 LTD Quilt Maple Top, Makena Blue Has An Ebony Fingerboard AND 59/09 Pickups
This year marks our 60th of serving the musical community, since opening our doors in 1958. To commemorate this moment, we created a selection of upgraded and unique builds made exclusively for our customers.
The original version of the CE model was introduced in 1988 in order to offer players a PRS design that showed off the added snap and sparkle of traditional bolt on guitars. Since the dawn of rock and roll, the snap and open response that comes from a bolt on neck guitar has always been an essential part of the mix. Returning after nearly a decade of being out of the lineup, the PRS CE 24 is back, and now it's better than ever.
SWEET COLORS - COOL FEEL
The Chuck Levin's 60th Anniversary Model CE 24 is available in two finishes. Both feature lightly figured quilt maple tops paired with a clear finished, natural mahogany back. You get to choose between two winners - a warm toned Honey Burst finish, or the cool McKenna Blue Gloss. The build is traditional bolt-on; the neck has a very natural and easy feel, with the Pattern Thin carve beneath a PRS satin nitro finish. That neck is rock maple, finished satin black, and has a fingerboard of Gaboon Ebony, inlaid with ivoroid "Old School" Bird inlays.
For these special CE24s, we opted to swap in PRS 59/09 pickups, instead of the standard 85/15 set. We were looking for something a little bit different for our customers, perhaps a bit more powerful, offering a little more warmth in the midrange allowing bolt-on model design greater access to harmonic overtones. The 59/09 pickups are uncovered, with exposed nickel screws/slugs. The controls include a volume and push/pull tone control, along with a 3-way toggle switch yielding a total of six sound possibilities.
