PAUL REED SMITH
The PRS S2 Custom 24 solidbody electric guitar's comfortable asymmetric bevel-cut double-cutaway body is built from maple-topped mahogany, so it's loaded with warmth, resonance, and copious amounts of bite and sustain. Instill your playing with incredible vintage sweetness, clarity, and extended tonal range, courtesy of the PRS S2 Custom 24's upgraded 85/15 "S" humbuckers. This guitar's Pattern Regular neck features an extended 24-fret rosewood fingerboard that makes high-register soloing easy. Perform everything from subtle, expressive nuances to full dive-bombs with this guitar's vibrato bridge/tailpiece. Complete with iconic bird fingerboard inlays, the PRS S2 Custom 24 is a great-sounding, great-playing solidbody electric guitar.
From the beginning, PRS has been on a never-ending quest for guitar perfection. The S2 series is just one more step in that journey. These guitars were designed to give you all the tone and playability that the PRS Maryland factory is known for in an affordable, exquisite instrument. Key features of this series include PRS S2 locking tuners, custom-wound pickups, the PRS Pattern Regular neck shape, PRS bridge, and a hybrid gloss finish. The PRS S2 Custom 22 delivers amazing playability and big guitar tone at a killer price.
Expressing your own style through the PRS S2 Custom 22's 85/15 "S" pickups is just one of the joys that come from this instrument. The 85/15 "S" pickups are modeled after the 85/15's Paul Reed Smith designed for PRS’s 30th Anniversary. From shimmering clean to blistering high-gain, the clarity and extended range provided by these pickups make the S2 Custom 24 the ideal live performance guitar. A push-pull tone pot further fortifies your sonic arsenal with a range of spanky single-coil tones. At Guitar World, we love the sweetened, vintage-inspired sound of 85/15 "S" humbuckers.
Paul Reed Smith is known for his passion for neck design. He has designed custom necks for many legendary guitarists. The Pattern Regular profile neck is just one more example of PRS's unending passion for designing a neck that offers impeccable feel and playability. The Pattern Regular neck feels great and plays smoothly. Cut from mahogany and fitted with a rosewood fretboard, this is a neck that supports the already exquisite body tonewoods. Further, the Pattern Regular neck carve is based on Paul Reed Smith's original, pre-factory neck design — the same one used on instruments he built in the late '80s at PRS's Virginia Avenue location. You'll love the playability and feel of the PRS S2 Custom 24 electric guitar!
