PRS Paul Reed Smith CE24 Electric Guitar

Since the dawn of rock and roll, the snap and response that comes from a bolt-on neck guitar has been an essential part of the mix. These attributes have, in turn, become essential to many players trying to tell their story through music. The CE 24 brings the bolt-on platform back to the main PRS lineup with some significant updates.

Hear the PRS CE 24 through a PRS Archon amp in our Tame Impala-inspired exclusive demo video:


The CE 24 pairs PRSs 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, addictive feel. To further maximize the guitars inherent tone and clarity, the CE 24 features PRS 85/15 pickups, which Paul designed to have remarkable clarity as well as extended high and low end. The electronics consist of a volume and push/pull tone control with 3-way toggle switch for a total of six classic sounds.

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 back and better than ever.

Features:

- Figured Maple top, with mahogany back
- 24-fret, 25 scale length Pattern Thin maple neck with East Indian rosewood Fretboard
- Bird inlays
- PRS-designed locking tuners
- PRS-designed tremolo
- 85/15 treble and bass pickups
- Volume, push/pull tone controls and 3-way toggle switch
- PRS Gig Bag

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (8 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "PRS Paul Reed Smith CE24 Electric Guita"
Overall: This is one sweet playing machine. The neck is butter. Three way switch is smooth and I hear no noise when changing pickups. I would only have one wish, is that they put a better set inlays, just a little more detail. I recommend this to any level of player.
Style of Music: Jazz, Rock, Blues

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Just get one"
Sound: Sounds great. Such a versatile guitar that doesn't really compromise anything to get that Swiss-Army-Knife usability. I feel like most genres would be a dream on this guitar. Feature: There are dozens of companies that throw a coil splitting push/pull toggle onto a guitar just because everyone else is doing it. And then PRS throws one onto the guitar to actually get a usable split tone. Go grab a Gibson with coil split on it and split the coils and play a show. It's weedy and thin and just sounds like you broke your Les Paul. Now split your PRS. It doesn't necessarily sound exactly like a single coil guitar (Fender, etc) but it's a thinner tone without being uselessly thin. It's articulate versus weak. It's punchy versus quiet. Every single company needs to reverse engineer the PRS pickups and splitting and try and replicate that or they shouldn't include the feature. I have to say.. There really should be a hard case. $2000 should get you a hard case. I mean c'mon. Ease of Use: PRS necks are legendarily playable and the CE 24 is no exception. I've personally never played a PRS guitar at all before ordering this one but as soon as I started playing it felt like playing an old favorite. Wonderful neck feel. Frets are perfectly smooth first to twenty-fourth. Quality: If I had to knock it on ONE thing it's tuning stability. I don't know if it's the bridge or the tuning pegs or the nut or the tremolo system (since it's all proprietary, this is my first interaction with any of it) but I have to tune up a little more often than I'd like for price paid. It's not an oppressive problem and it's easily fixed in any case. Value: $2000 seems like a lot of money, but look at the $2000 price point. Fender and Gibson make great guitars but nothing that's clearly a better value than what PRS is putting out for two grand. I have Fenders and I have Gibsons and I love them. Hell, I bought them before I bought the PRS. But at $2000 this is so much guitar it's really hard to make the comparison. At lower or higher price points I think there's more of a conversation to be had but PRS is the king of the $2000 range right now. Manufacturer Support: I haven't had an issue so far so I can't speak for reliability of consumer support but it's no secret that PRS guitars are as great as they are because Paul Reed Smith is a nutcase whose attention to detail and perfectionist tendencies border on psychosis. It isn't an accident that every inch of this guitar is utilitarian and gorgeous. The Wow Factor: If you're a flame top guy/gal, use a website like zZounds that can let you pick the guitar you're getting because the possible tops are WIDELY VARIABLE. There are tops that look like just a stained maple top and then there are tops that could have made it onto a 10-top Core model. Being able to pick your own top can get people who love flame maple happy and people who think it's gaudy happy. Overall: Great guitar. It sounds great, it's the easiest guitar to play that I've personally played. There's a lot of sustain on tap and the versatility of THE ACTUALLY USEFUL COIL SPLIT gives you a lot of tonal viability. Feels great, sounds great, looks great. Absolutely worth $2000.
Style of Music: Blues and southern rock, jazzy stuff, metal if we can find a venue. Kind of all over the place.
