It has two output jacks, allowing guitarists to plug into their favorite electric or acoustic guitar amp or DI into a soundboard. By utilizing the separate blend control, the tone of the 85/15 pickups can also be combined with the piezo acoustic sounds through a single output.
Since its introduction back in 1985, the Custom 24 has offered a unique tonal option for serious players and with it's definitive PRS tone and playability. Played by internationally touring artists, gigging club musicians, and aspiring players who only want quality, this Custom 24 features PRS’s patented Gen III tremolo system and PRS 85/15 pickups with volume and tone controls and a 5-way blade switch. The model 85/15 pickups were personally designed by Paul Reed Smith to offer a specific clarity, plus an extended high and low end.
PRS is driven to quality and to innovation, furthering the guitar industry’s already rich heritage within each product. They build without compromise in their tone, their playability or their beauty. The right wood choice is the foundation of every PRS instrument, so only the greatest care is taken in sourcing, cutting, drying, and grading each species of timber used. Every piece and every process is important to the finished instrument, so their team of luthiers focus - every step of the way - to ensure you are getting their best effort on what will be your very personal instrument.
Neck shapes have always been a high priority for PRS and a hallmark of PRS quality.

These new neck shapes reflect modern tooling and programming that allows PRS to even more precise shape and consistency in that reproduction.
