(STEVENSVILLE, MD) June 19, 2014 – The 2014 Custom 24 Semi-Hollow small batch run is the first of its kind. Building on the company’s flagship and most popular model, the Custom 24, the 2014 Custom 24 Semi-Hollow adds a semi-hollow body with an f-hole for the first time in PRS’s nearly thirty year history. The 2014 Custom 24 Semi-Hollow has all of the versatility and reliability of the Core Custom. The addition of a chambered, semi-hollow body gives this guitar added midrange and resonance while losing none of the instrument’s tried-and-true character.
Specifications for this run include a carved, figured maple top with mahogany back, 25” scale length, 24 fret “Pattern Regular” mahogany neck with East Indian rosewood fretboard, Bird inlays, PRS Phase III locking tuners (nickel hardware), uncovered 59/09 treble and bass pickups, and PRS’s patented Tremolo. Color options include PRS’s most popular current offerings: Aquableux, Black Gold, Blood Orange, Faded Whale Blue, Jade, Obsidian, Red Tiger, and Violet. Fewer than 200 of these instruments will be made for this small batch run.
The Custom 24 is the original PRS guitar – the guitar Paul Reed Smith took to his first NAMM trade show in 1985. Due to its extreme versatility and reliability, the flagship model has since become indispensable to countless musicians in the studio and on the stage. Through the years, the Custom 24 has evolved with the PRS craft and has been offered in several varying configurations, but never with an f-hole until now.
