So I'm going to be getting a PRS Custom 24 *soon*.

I went to Guitar Center to check them out and they were around $4200-4700...

My question would be, if anyone new if I could hopefully save a bit of money ordering straight through PRS. If anyone has done that it would be appreciated if you could tell me when you ordered your guitar and how much it was.

$4200 seems like I lot. I was expecting to pay a little closer to a $2700 top end for a custom 24...am I just crazy or are they really 4k guitars?


Edit: Can anyone point me in the right direction for custom ordering a prs? I'm looking on the site but can't find anyway of actually ordering from them...

i just looked on ebay and alot of them were around £1,900 - 3,500 ish.
i dont know much about prs but try and look at other guitar stores (sites) and see if they're around £4,000 then i guess you have your answer


sorry for not being any help

edit: scroll down and there's a few prs custom 24 http://www.guitarvillage.co.uk/product-list.asp?manuid=83&catid=3

just realised that you put the price in dollars
They made me do push ups in drag

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

3500-4000 depending on options is what you should expect to pay new. You can only order through PRS directly if you doing something totally custom (ie ~$10,000). I own one, and can tell you IT IS NOT WORTH THAT MUCH MONEY. Its a great guitar, but way overpriced for what you get. Look used or at some other options.

It depends on if they are artist signatures or not. But as far as I know the custom 24's usually range from 3-4 thousand.

For the same price (or less) you can built your personal dream guitar using a company like Warmoth.

They're extremely nice guitars, and IMO worth the $2500-3000 tag usually seen for new models, but paying over $4000 for one is TOO MUCH, so if I were your I'd keep looking at other places, but as much as I love PRS, I understand not everybody likes them, so make sure you REALLY like them before spending so much money.

so you'd buy a guitar with a terrible neck, cheap pickups and worn out frets if it said prs on it.....?
