SKU: 1-0320405

They don't get more fancy than this PRS Custom 24: custom color, Hybrid Hardware and a 10-top!

The Custom series by Paul Reed Smith has become a household name in guitar land. In the 1980s, the Custom 24 was the starting point of this wonderful brand, and look where PRS is now. With its functionality, feel and tone, the guitar was right in between Fender and Gibson. This unique sound appealed to many guitarists, and in combination with the unprecedented craftsmanship and sublime finish of the guitars, Paul Reed Smith secured his own place in the guitar market. The core of this guitar: 24 frets, two humbuckers and split coil options, all wrapped up in a reliable and stable guitar made from the very best tonewoods. What a beauty this performance is. First of all, the Eriza Smokeburst Custom Color finish, a unique color in the PRS line-up. This finish is a real eye-catcher with a beautiful bright green tint in the center and a chic burst towards the edges. Very nice! In addition, the 10-top is also remarkably opulent with a beautiful drawing. Other noteworthy features are the Hybrid Hardware, new nitro over cellulose (CAB) finish and the TCI-tuned pickups. Below you can read more about what exactly the TCI tuning entails. This Custom 24 has it all! Includes case.

What is TCI?  

TCI is an abbreviation for Tuned Capacitance and Inductance treatment . This way of fine tuning pickups originated during the design process of the Silver Sky, in collaboration with John Mayer. Both Paul Reed Smith and John Mayer were obsessed with recreating the Stratocaster single coils from the '63 to '65 as accurately as possible, with just the right balance of highs and lows. When a pickup is wound, the coils are also capacitors (capacitance), resistors and inductors (inductance) at the same time. Until now these three elements could not be influenced separately, but Paul Reed Smith has cracked the code to isolate and fine-tune these factors. Thanks to the TCI treatment, the pickups are now even better tuned to the guitar to produce the purest guitar sound to date. TCI is therefore more than just a new kind of pick-up, it is a completely innovative process. That process is now applied to all PRS pickups offered in the Core line, with the exception of some Signature models.
