In 2015 PRS celebrated their 30th anniversary and released a celebratory guitars that were only available for one year.
This is their core Custom 24 model updated with new 30th anniversary birds, truss rod cover and 85/15 pickups.
Made In Maryland
Like all USA PRS guitars this has been made in their Maryland factory which mixes traditional luthiers and machines to make a guitar to the highest quality every time while still keeping that personal hand made touch. Made with a mahogany body and neck that have been topped with some beautiful figured maple and Ebony respectively. This guitar has a sound unique to it with a focused midrange that cuts you through the mix without sounding muddy.
The Neck on this guitar has been cut to what PRS call a 'Pattern Thin' shape. This is the more modern feeling thin neck style that is loved by shredders and heavy riffers alike with a smooth playing feel that gives you great access to every part of the neck.
30th Anniversary Parts
In recent years PRS have started creating a wider range of pickups all based on vintage style PAF pickups but with modern twists to make them more suitable for the modern guitarist. THis year they have introduced the new 85/15 pickups that focus on providing the best pickups for the modern guitarist. When compared to other pickups like the 58/08s and 59/09s these pickups have impeccable clarity with extended high and low end to make sure you can get the tone you want every time you plug it in.
The 30th Anniversary does not end just at the pickups though with this guitar also having some cool visual updates as well. The biggest change comes with the new 30th Anniversary inlays that have a more solid look to them than the inlays we see on regular models. The other change is that the truss rod cover has been replaces by a 30th Anniversary plate to show off the celebration.
Second To None Hardware
Not many companies can say that they have spent so long getting their hardware just perfect. PRS are one of the few that can the PRS Tremolo and Phase III Locking tuners work together to keep the guitar in tune no matter how extreme you go. Even if you go full on Hendrix this guitar will still stand its ground.
