The Custom 24 is the quintessential PRS guitar, the iconic instrument that started it all back in 1985. The Custom 24-08 keeps all of the same foundational specifications as the original Custom – maple top, mahogany back and neck, 24 frets, 25” scale length, the PRS patented Gen III tremolo, and dual 85/15 pickups – but adds a new level of versatility with its simple switching system.
Featuring mini-toggle coil tap switches, the Custom 24-08 has eight different pickup settings that provide an array of humbucking and single coil tones, including a dual single coil option unique for this model.

The Custom 24-08 allows for fast effortless playing all over the neck and exceptional tone options. The Custom 24 is the original PRS; since its introduction, it has offered a unique tonal option for serious players and defined PRS tone and playability. The 24-08 model builds on this heritage offering the electronics of the 408 to be utilised in the Custom 24, allowing easy switching and pickup combinations for the most versatile Custom 24 to date.
This particular 24-08 is brand new. It was specially ordered by its one owner in 2019, delivered mid 2020, and has been played less than six times. It shows no marks or blemishes and presents as new in every way. But unfortunately sometimes circumstances change and now this one must be moved on.
Finished in the stunning special colour of Charcoal Cherry, this PRS is one of the most striking we have ever seen. It features the very upmarket PRS Artist Package which adds a degree of exclusivity to an already superb instrument.
Street price on this one would be well over $1000 more expensive now, and with a long wait time. PREMIER GUITARS has probably sold more US made PRS guitars than anyone on the past few years, but this one is pretty special – a fabulous PRS Custom 24-08 in new condition ready to go, and ready to rock.
Comes in its equally splendid hard shell case finished in PRS Artist Black Paisley, in new condition with all paperwork & tags etc.
