With the CE 24, PRS brings the bolt-on platform back to the brand's main lineup, adding some significant updates on the way.
The original CE was introduced in 1988 and offered players PRS design and quality with the added snap and sparkle of traditional bolt-on guitars. Returning after nearly a decade of being out of the lineup, the CE 24 is not only back but also re-envisioned. The new CE 24 pairs PRS’s traditional body combination of the mahogany back and maple top with a bolt-on maple neck and rosewood fretboard. The neck sports a Pattern Thin carve and satin nitro finish for a natural feel. To further maximize the guitar’s inherent tone and clarity, the model features PRS 85/15 pickups (which Paul Reed Smith himself designed to have better clarity as well as extended high and low end) instead of the original HFS pickups. The electronics consist of a volume and push/pull tone control with 3-way toggle switch for a total of six classic sounds. The guitar is also slimmer so as to enhance comfort when playing.
The CE 24 is available in the following finishes: Amber, Dark Cherry Sunburst, Grey Black, McCarty Tobacco, Ruby, Trampas Green, Vintage Sunburst, Whale Blue (natural binding, toned nitro finish on necks).
No MSRP available. More details and videos of the new CE 24 are available at the PRS website.
