PRS Guitars has just introduced a new limited run of SE Custom 24 Roasted Maple guitars. These new models look stunning and are now available (at last) in the USA.
PRS Limited Run SE Custom 24 Roasted Maple Guitars
Originally, this limited edition was only offered outside the United States. Which is weird considering that these roasted maple neck versions of the PRS SE Custom 24 were a huge hit in Europe.
But now PRS has announced that a limited run SE Custom 24 Roasted Maple Limited will be available to buy in the USA. So what’s different about this edition of the SE Custom 24? The Roasted Maple edition adds a roasted/torrefied maple neck and fretboard, a fantastic upgrade to an already popular guitar.
These guitars have a flame maple veneer on a maple top and a mahogany back. They all come with the popular 25” scale length, Wide Thin roasted maple neck loaded with 24 frets and black ‘Birds’ fret markers. This makes for a modern, smooth-playing guitar that should cover a lot of bases.
Also onboard are a PRS-patented moulded tremolo and dual PRS 85/15 “S” pickups wired via a 3-way blade switch and push/pull tone control for coil tapping. There are some great tones available here. Those PRS trem systems are rock solid if you keep them maintained. These new SE models should do well in the US and could be a bit of bargain, if the price is right.
According to the PRS website, “fewer than 2,000 SE Custom 24 Roasted Maple Limited Editions are being made for the US market.” So don’t wait too long to get your hands of one of these.
They will be available in Whale Blue, Trampas Green, Charcoal Burst and Tobacco Burst finishes.
