An incredible addition for 2021 to the SE series... the PRS SE Custom 24-08. This guitar is the epitome of PRS quality and showcases exquisite expertise and meticulous attention to detail. Explore the wonders of such a divine instrument and unleash your potential with TCI tuned pickups. These articulate and tight, yet warm, humbuckers combine vintage design with modern innovation to give you a truly unique and versatile tone. And with two coil tap switches, you can dive into the glorious sonic depths of eight different pickup settings. The possibilities are endless and the versatility is obscene with the SE Custom 24-08.

Complementing the exceptional electronics is a brilliant combination of tonewoods. Perform with the bright and crisp attack of a maple top, the resonance of the mahogany back and sides, and the smoothness of a rosewood fretboard. Such a tonally gorgeous and aesthetically sleek design will always retain its pristine condition thanks to a gig bag which is included.

Perform without limits

Unleash your creativity and live up to your potential with a pair of TCI "S" pickups. They demonstrate PRS' unparalleled quality and meticulous attention to detail. TCI, or 'tuning capacitance and inductance', is a process the pickups have endured to ensure every single note is projected with refined tuning, giving you a consistent sound amongst the bass and treble ranges. Go from smooth, mellow tones to ones with aggression and bite. These vintage-sounding pickups are sure to make an impact, especially when you push them hard. Better still, the opportunity this guitar gives you to create your own distinctive sound is exceptional. Explore eight magnificent pickup settings brought by two mini-toggle coil tap switches and a 3-way pickup selector. You will be recognisable from the first note.

An iconic duo

Two legendary tonewoods... one mesmerising instrument. A maple and mahogany build is what gives this guitar its sleek design and comfortable feel. But these tonewoods also contribute to the exhilarating tone, delivering warmth and brightness in good measure whilst projecting every note with gorgeous clarity. Taking centre stage is a maple top. It really is the ultimate wood for gigging with. Whether you're strumming or fingerpicking, maple ensures there is glistening definition, enough to separate the notes of even the most complex of chords. It is bright, loud, and offers minimal feedback, so you won't have to suffer that dreaded muddy sound. It also grants the guitar improved robustness as well as a high-end finish. Prepare for sharp articulation, immense volume, and a mesmerising gig.


Providing a resonant undercurrent of warmth are the mahogany back and sides. Mahogany balances out the bright tonal qualities of maple perfectly thanks to its focus on midrange 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. Showcasing a tremendous, thin and wide design, the neck is wonderfully 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 evens out any harsh frequencies to ensure you are left with a beautifully balanced sound that begs your virtuosic sculpting. Its natural finish embellished with elegant bird inlays is striking and truly beautiful.


The SE Custom 24-08 is designed to make pitch bends exceptionally easy whilst the right amount of string tension still provides gorgeous sustain. 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. A sturdy tremolo bridge then allows you to enhance your music. Whether you're performing mind-blowing divebombs or just adding another dynamic dimension to your chords, do so with vigour and passion.
