    Posted my first one yesterday, the Custom 22. Pre-ordered this one back in November, arrived last week. Needed a little setting up actually, Action was too high. I feel the nut is cut a bit too low as well. Changed strings to 10's from the 9's it came with which I prefer, still the nut slots seem too low. Added the additional supplied spring as well. Playing quite nicely now.

    Amazed how different a 22 v 24 feels. When sat the 24 does feel like its shifted to the left quite a bit. In truth, I feel more at home with the 22, just the ergonomics..everything feels right on a 22 (which is why I think I feel in love with it so quickly). I do like this 24 however, different tone, pickups sound good and the split coil function seems to work well. The workmanship is excellent. Inlays, frets all perfect.

    I've ordered a set of the SE locking keys and a set of Amber lampshade knobs.

    Congrats - beautiful!

    I had the same reaction when I first played a C24 - took a bit to get used to it. No longer have a 24 fretter as a I traded that one in on another PRS. GAS can be cruel :)

    Another fine specimen! I loves me some mini-toggles.

    I have gravitated toward 22 fretters over the past few years, combination of neck pickup sound and ergonomics. But I do miss having two full octaves sometimes. These make it tempting

    Hi congratulations. I received my 35th C24 2 days before Christmas and I really enjoying it. I had a pinging sound in the nut with the original strings. I forgot what you call the noise. But I put on a set of 9.5 strings and had to add a little relief. It resolved after that. Glad you like it!
