The Paul Reed Smith Custom 24 is the company's flagship model – the first guitar that Paul brought to Winter NAMM in 1985 and still among PRS' best-selling instruments. The Custom 24's beautifully carved maple top comes in a range of finishes, from three-dimensional "10 Tops" to more understated, subtle flame and back again. This top is paired a mahogany back, mahogany neck and rosewood fretboard, creating a truly balanced sound. The neck can come with one of a couple different shapes to suit most any player, from Tom Johnston of the Doobie Brothers to modern shredders like Mark Holcomb of Periphery. More recent Custom 24s come with the PRS-designed 85/15 bridge and neck pickups and five-way switching with coil-tapping, producing a bewildering amount of tones that have made these guitars the go-to favorites of touring artists and studio guitarists for more than three decades.
