"This model has been the most stable, pleasure-to-play instrument I've ever had. I've put it through the paces and it's made me proud to have my name on it." - Dustie Waring (Between the Buried and Me)
The progressive metal band Between the Buried and Me has a sound that is both heavy and melodic, lush and menacing. It is this demand for versatility without sacrifice that led to the development of guitarist Dustie Waring's PRS Signature model: the DW CE24 "Floyd." This model starts with the maple top with a satin Black Top finish, mahogany back, PRS CE bolt-on platform and includes a satin-finished maple neck, maple fretboard, a slightly modified Pattern Thin neck carve (Waring's carve is slightly thinner front to back) and a Floyd Rode tremolo system.
With satin black hardware, the pickups and electronics are also unique to Waring's signature axe. The pickups are Waring's signature Mojotone "DW Tomahawk" pickups. Made with a blend of Ceramic and Alnico magnets and a special winding technique, DW Tomahawks have plenty of output and big bottom end while remaining articulate and clear - a unique quality for high-gain pickups. Paired with a volume and tone control and a 5-way Blade Pickup Selector that have been shifted slightly to allow plenty of room to work the tremolo, the DW CE24 "Floyd" is comfortable, fun and inspiring to play. Comes in a premium PRS gig bag.
