    There are Wood Library & Private Stocks drifting around. Regular production models seem pretty sparse. I've had an Artist Package on order since March. I was told to expect delivery next March, but got a call recently that said it should be in this August :D

    I've been drooling over CU24s for over a decade. I was finally in a position to order one when the production 24-08 was announced & the extra switching positions appealed to me. It'll be my first PRS, so we shall soon see!

    Don’t have one YET but it’s my favorite “new” model Especially since I’m a custom 24 junkie.

    Actually it seems like a fantastic idea since you can essentially turn your HH custom 24 into a HS or HSS kinda feel guitar.

    I do have a few questions though, given that the neck pickup is reversed, will it sound different? Also, could you spec a private stock with the neck pickup the right way round but with the same switching circuitry? Like, what are the benefits of reversing that neck pickup? I'm assuming more volume, but I've never had a problem with my HH guitars that have a neck coil tap.

    I've had one on order since last December. I was told to expect a November delivery. HOPING it's sooner. If someone who order theirs four months after I did gets theirs first I'm going to be extremely inconvenienced..........extremely.o_O

    A core 24-08 takes the same time as a private stock?

    It’s an artist package. I blame the Silver Sky for the LONG lead time.

    It's normal to take this long. My order is expected to be 10-11 months. Due this September.

    Just my opinion of course, but I think this is the way the CU24 and CU22 should come as standard. Great tone possibilities.

    I hope they sell enough of them to convince them to make them the standard.
