    2018 PRS Core Models?

    I've been itching to get myself my first core custom 24! Slight problem is that I'm not into the current line of colors. Any idea when they get updated? I know PRS SE new models came out last October.

    When will my guitar arrive?

    I ordered a fire red custom 24 at the beginning of April and the anticipation is killing me! I think about it every day. The only info my dealer can give me is "90-120 days" no concrete date. Next week will be the 4 month mark. With the way things are going will it take even longer than that?

    Help Identifying PRS ?

    Hello all. Looking for help in identifying this PRS. There are a couple of things that throw me off. I do not know for sure what year it is. Also it has a stop tail piece and push pull tone pot. Does that mean it is not a Custom 24? It has McCarty Bass and Treble Pickups. I do not know if those...

    What is that color?

    Hi Everyone, I'm new on the forum and since recently a happy owner of a 2016 PRS Custom 24. Before going to the store I watched a bunch of online reviews, pictures etc. and had a pretty good idea of what I wanted. Then I went there, tried about 7 PRS guitars back to back and fell in love with...

    Custom 24 w/ unfinished neck?

    I was at guitar center and saw a PRS Custom 24, but it had an unfinished neck. At first I thought it was a ce model but it wasn't a bolt-on neck. It was one piece and was labeled a custom. I can't seem to find this model anywhere on the internet. Does anyone know what it is? or where I can find...

    1992 PRS Custom 24 Wenge top

    I bought excellent 1992 PRS Custom 24 wenge topped guitar. I heard that 1992-1993 "PRS experimented with exotic tops, including wenge, cedar, zebra wood, etc and were not part of any limited run, they are normal production guitars except for the exotic tops" There's no modcat code in pickup...

    Pink Floyd NGD

    I actually picked this up a couple months ago, but I have lazy in posting about it. I bugged the previous owner for about a year and half to sell it to me. When the time finally came, I jumped on the chance. A previous owner switched the pickups to an SD Jazz & JB set and I think they are...

    Spring claw adjustment

    Hi all, I have a '04 PRS Custom 24. I have always used 10-46 D'Addario strings but recently I wanted some more tension on the low E so I am trying the 10-52 D'Addario light top/heavy bottom set. I was a little surprised by just how much more tension these strings have. There was quite a bit...

    Wiring Help! SD 4-Conductor in a SE Custom 24

    Hi all, New to the forum and new to doing work myself, but I'll be damned if I don't try to learn how to take care of my own instrument. I'm decent with a soldering iron, so why not replace my own pickups? The issue is, I can't seem to find any wiring diagrams for putting in my 4-conductor SD...

    Vernon Reid / Doug Wimbish rig rundowns

    Epic stuff. Mad scientists. Wizardry. Vernon talks about his PRSs and his monstrous setup. Billy Cox shows up for the bass rundown and the host basically sits back and lets them go. Watch for the end when Doug reveals the finish on his 5string.

    NGD! 30th Anniversary CU24

    Hey guys, I eluded to this a few days ago in another post, and she showed up today, so time for the reveal! It was the last Honey Flame that Zzounds had in stock, so I got it at a pretty good price. Not a 10-Top, but pretty good. Definitely have to be at the right angle to see the flame, but...
