Classic design with enhanced playability. That is exactly what the PRS SE Standard 24 offers. Based on the Custom 24 model, it features the same dynamic 85/15 "S" pickups and sturdy hardware that provide firm tuning stability. Lose yourself in those magnificent vibrato techniques and perform confidently knowing your strings will return to pitch.
The tonewoods used for this guitar, along with its sleek shape, all contribute to immense playability. Slide your fingers across the smooth rosewood fretboard while the thin maple neck sits comfortably in your grip. It encompasses 24 frets and a 25'' scale length for endless possibilities, and the double cutaway design enables you to reach those higher frets in slick fashion. No more muddy sounding notes, no more buzzing, the PRS SE Standard 24 provides a sublime playing experience and simply thrilling sound.
Play with history on your side
We all know of PRS' unwavering quality, their ever-growing expertise, and unmatched craftsmanship. And the 85/15 "S" pickups are a true demonstration of this. After taking the guitar world by storm in 1985, PRS employed them for the SE range in 2017 to provide musicians with incredible vintage sounds that also offer the versatility modern players need. Go from the smooth, mellow tone of the neck to powerful bridge tones using the 3-way switch and experience an abundance of electrifying sound. Whether it's clean sounds you're after or more aggression and bite, these pickups don't disappoint. Their highly responsive nature also means your varying dynamics and careful adjustment of the volume and tone controls will have a big impact on your sound. Another particularly enticing feature is the push/pull tone control which allows you to access coil-tapping for the sonic possibilities of a single coil pickup.
A superb mahogany build
A truly magnificent tonewood that brings a wealth of practical and sonic attributes, PRS have taken full advantage of mahogany by using it for the whole of the SE Standard 24's body. Not only does its natural beauty radiate through a blue finish, but mahogany also coats every note with warmth and resonance thanks to its focus on mid-range frequencies. And it promises a lifetime of divine playing as it matures beautifully, growing more focused the more you play. Such a gorgeous guitar body also needs excellent strength and durability to be able to handle wild gigs and lengthy studio sessions. Luckily, mahogany is incredibly robust and so as well as aging with grace, its sturdiness will never tire either.
Deliver pure brilliance
The magnificent qualities of this guitar travel from the body and up a sublime maple neck. Maple is the ideal tonewood for gigging with thanks to its crisp response and ability to minimise feedback. Get ready for glistening definition that thrives with humbucking pickups. The neck's wide and thin shape makes it comfortable to hold and gives your fingers the space they need to roam the rosewood fretboard freely. Rosewood is a stunning accompaniment to mahogany and maple as it cleverly evens out any harsh frequencies to ensure you are left with a beautifully balanced sound that begs your virtuosic sculpting. Its shaded colour embellished with elegant bird inlays sits attractively next to the translucent blue body.
Featuring a 25'' scale length, the PRS SE Standard 24 is designed to make pitch bends exceptionally easy whilst the right amount of string tension still provides gorgeous sustain, further helped by a set neck construction. Slide your fingers across the smooth and fast frets effortlessly and experience the freedom of a 24-fret instrument with a classic aesthetic and unique, versatile tone. And at an affordable price, you can’t go wrong.
