    I'm relatively new to the PRS world and I'm trying to decide between between two used models. I've found a 2019 s2 custom 24 for 950 and a 94 ce24 for the same price. Any recommendations? The one concern I have with the ce is that it has a rotary switch which is going to be a problem playing live. I play in a cover band but personally I like a more bluesy tone.

    If it were me buying, lots of different factors, authenticity, condition, modification, finish, case/bag, case candy etc.

    They will both be great guitars.

    You get a lot of guitar from a CE from that era.

    If you are buying online, try to agree a return policy if either guitar doesn’t live up to your expectations.

    Good luck and remember the New Guitar Thread when it arrives.

    Those old CEs have some great mojo in them. I'd be hard pressed to pass that up.

    Easy choice for me. The CE all day long. I like the rotary, but I don't switch a lot in a song so the speed isn't an issue for me. If it turns out to bug you, just put in a 3 way switch and a push pull for the splits.

    If the CE is in good shape it’s your winner.

    CE. You can always change the rotary to a 3-way and a push/pull if you want.
