Paul Reed Smith's legendary Custom 24 with the new TCI tuned pickups!

The guitar that started it all for Paul Reed Smith: the Custom 24! This model has evolved a lot over the years, but the core remains the same: 24 frets, two humbuckers and split coil options, all packed into a reliable and stable guitar made from the very best tonewoods. New for 2020: the TCI tuned 85/15 pickups and the nitro over cellulose (CAB) finish. Read more about the TCI-tuned pickups at the bottom of this page. Thanks to the 25" scale and slim neck, this model from PRS Guitars sits exactly between the Fender and Gibson feel. In terms of looks, this guitar is of course an absolute beauty. First of all, the Gray Black finish. What a chic color! strikingly detailed with a beautiful drawing. This is a 10-top level (this is the gradation that PRS uses for their finest maple tops), but the guitar is not marked as 10-top. And that makes a significant difference in price. , this PRS Custom 24 Gray Black is once again a great specimen.Too crazy.Including 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.
