PRS has just provided details of some new guitars for its 2018 model year. Among them is the Custom 24-08, which has a new switching system that can coax eight tones out of the twin humbucking pickups. That’s a lot of added versatility for a guitar based on a model that was already tonally flexible.

This new Custom 24-08 is made using a nicely figured maple top with a mahogany back and neck. It’s loaded with the customary 24 frets and the now traditional 25” PRS scale length. It also has the PRS patented Gen III tremolo and a pair of  85/15 pickups.

Switching sounds

The Custom 24-08 has eight different pickup settings, all accessible via two mini-toggle switches and a three-way blade switch. So there should be plenty of tones on tap. Watch the official demo video I have linked below to hear them all.

Neck Patterns

When you order one online or through your local dealer, you can specify either the PRS Pattern Regular or Pattern Thin neck profiles. There is also a huge range of colours available for 2018, so plenty of choice in feel, tones and aesthetics. Not a bad thing, surely?

I own a regular Custom 24 myself and it is already a pretty versatile guitar. With these new enhancements for 2018, the new Custom 24-08 looks like a great guitar on paper. The demo video below makes it sound like one as well.
