S2 HFS Treble and S2 Vintage Bass Humbuckers
The pickups on your Paul Reed Smith S2 really lend this axe a tone all of its own. Your S2 Vintage Bass neck pickup fuels a wailing thickness that's full of body and spine-bending tonal flavor. Your S2 HSF Treble bridge pickup brings in a little more bite and brightness to give you that extra edge to cut through. Together, these two pickups really run the gamut, bringing you everything from crystal-clear cleans to tenacious full-fledged distortion -- as well as everything in between. That's what makes the S2 Custom 24 such a workhorse of a PRS.
Modern-Looking Mahogany Body and Maple Top
The body on your Paul Reed Smith S2 Custom 24 features an ultra-modern-looking asymmetric beveled bookmatched maple top. Maple tends to focus on the brighter frequencies, lending a tight, focused, and snappy sound to this axe's mahogany body. In the S2 Custom 24, two time-tested tonewoods come together in a decidedly new-school body shape.
Comfy Mahogany Neck with Pattern Regular Profile
Once you lay your hand around this axe's snug Pattern Regular profile mahogany neck, you'll be ready for some lightning-fast runs. The 24-fret rosewood fingerboard gives you incredibly close razor-thin action that your fingers won't be able to pull themselves away from. This baby's neck profile is based on the same design Smith used for his late '80s necks, so you can expect the amazing playability that PRS guitars have become known for.
The remarkably flexible PRS Tremolo bridge on this axe lets you to dive as low as possible -- without messing up your tuning when your bring your strings back to their standard tensions. A set of PRS S2 locking tuners will assist in keeping your intonation lasting longer, so your solos can be full of wails and mile-high bends without worries about going flat or breaking strings. Play your heart out and rest assured that this beauty won't let you down.
