Only yesterday I was posting news of 2 new additions to the PRS S2 lineup for 2014 and the new PRS SE Marty Friedman Signature model and now today some huge news from PRS, the are introducing a Floyd Rose equipped Custom 24 and an SE version too. Now the “Floyd” Custom 24 & SE “Floyd” Custom 24 guitars are not the first guitars to have a Floyd Rose Tremelo system, the (not so popular for some reason) Torero, I think, was the first.
The Core “Floyd” Custom 24 is equipped with the Floyd Rose “Original” tremolo system and PRS’s \m/ (metal) pickups (uncovered).
The SE “Floyd” Custom 24 guitar features the 1000 Series tremolo.
The Custom 24 will continue to be offered without the Floyd in both the Core and SE lines. The Core model features the choice of PRS’s 59/09 treble and bass pickups or HFS treble and Vintage Bass pickups and PRS’s patented tremolo system. For 2014, both Core Custom models are available in PRS’s six new maple top colors (Aquableux, Blood Orange, Faded Whale Blue, Leprechaun Tooth, Obsidian, and Violet) and feature a rosewood headstock veneer with inlaid “Paul Reed Smith” signature. Guitarists looking to add additional options, colors, and enhanced features can order a Custom 24 Artist Package. The SE Custom features the PRS SE tremolo and SE HFS and SE Vintage Bass pickups paired with a push-pull tone control and 3-way blade pickup switch for coil tapping.
