This is a very special Custom 24 EXP. The "EXP" is short for PRS "Experience" which was an exclusive event for the top PRS Dealers in the country. Although the event was cancelled due to Covid, Paul Reed Smith had prepared a limited selection of guitars to be sold to the dealer attendees for sale to their customers. These guitars were carefully selected to have some very special features including exclusive "10 Top" designations as well as a plethora of other options on the guitars. This PRS Custom 24 was upgraded with a Piezo in the saddle. This Charcoal Burst Custom 24 is also upgraded with an Indian rosewood Neck and a gorgeous Brazilian Rosewood Fretboard. This 2020 model has hybrid hardware and a Pattern thin neck profile.
The Custom 24 Piezo is a 24-fret solidbody piezo-equipped guitar that effortlessly achieves classic humbucker tones and authentic acoustic sounds in one instrument. The added versatility of PRS’s patented tremolo gives musicians a new a unique tool to add to their lineup.
The Custom 24 Piezo has two output jacks, allowing guitarists to plug into their favorite electric or acoustic guitar amp or DI into a soundboard. By utilizing the separate blend control, the tone of the 85/15 pickups can also be combined with the piezo acoustic sounds through a single output. With a nearly infinite range of tones and the added versatility and reliability of PRS’s proprietary tremolo bridge, the Custom 24 Piezo is a perfect “go-to” guitar for players of all kinds.
For 2020, PRS has updated this model with TCI-tuned pickups and nitro over celluose (CAB) finish.
