So I've been looking into a new guitar for Christmas this year, and I settled upon the PRS SE Custom 24 after playing it in Sam Ash and I was impressed! Just wanted to know, has anyone had any problems with one? Major problems, not minor problems, minor problems are fixable. Thanks!

Negative. Probably the most solid guitar you'll find in that price range. No kidding -- you picked a winner amongst winners.

I have the SE Custom 22 and I have yet to have a problem. Its fallen off its stand twice (once on straight concrete) and landed right on its face and nothing happend to it. I've also, just over the 5 years i've had it, beat the shit out of it on stage and put a lot of use on it and it still sounds and plays great. Its a solid guitar man.

Thanks!! I'm extremely glad nobody has had problems with it thus far because I think my mom already got it for me for Xmas.

Just don't expect to use the trem wildly at all. It doesn't stay in tune when you use it but it keeps its tuning just fine once it's set. Pretty sweet guitar, especially for the price I paid. Good pick!

She insists to wear this lights.

I don't think so.

How can I persuade her?

Just to point out the obvious -- you've got a pretty kick ass mom! Do something really nice for her, seriously. Not all parents support the interests of their kids or have the means to do so...

great guitars for the price.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

I'm not a big term guy anyway, having played mostly hardtail guitars in my 3 years of playing (minus a Squier Strat) so that won't be an issue. And yea, I'll be helping out my mom for the next several years now between this and my Christmas gift last year (Fender Tele).

I went to the music shop just today looking for my Christmas gift, too. I was torn between the Jaguar HH Special Edition and the SE Custom 24. Both felt great in my hands so that was a wash.

But...when I plugged them in the PRS blew me away. Even on the bridge bucker, the Jag was really muddy but the PRS was extremely crystal and had the distorted tone I love.

Can't wait to bring it home. Gonna be sweet!

Haha well one time it was on its stand backstage at a show I was playing in and I was trying to set the PA up and pulled on a cord that was somehow wrapped around my guitar cord that was plugged into my guitar and it went down hard. I almost started crying on the spot. And the second time I was at home and somehow must have snagged the strap or something because I was just sitting and then THUD! I almost cried again because some paint chipped off but now I look at them like battle scars lol. Now I know exactly which one is mine lol.

The biggest issue I can see is the trem with non-locking tuners. You may have to re-tune if you're riding the trem hard, otherwise they're very solid guitars.
