Paul Reed Smith: Custom 24

Paul Reed Smith is an evil man. For years his sole purpose in life has been to make ridiculously awesome guitars that few of us can afford. One of his more tempting guitars has always been the flagship Custom 24, and they keep getting better and better.

The CE 24 was designed back in 1988 and it's been in continual production ever since. It offers our comfortable wide-thin neck carve and combines the clarity of our popular 24 fret instruments with the warmth and classic style of a maple-topped, one-piece mahogany body and HFS/Vintage Bass pickup combination.

This is a new model for PRS for 2012. It is the newer model of their PRS SE Single Cut. It would fit most anything that didn't require a single coil type of sound. It's got a really huge sound, and it's got a bit of weight to it.

Obviously baritones aren't exactly for the "happy" sounding poppy tunes, and this guitar is no exception. Dark when clean, and p-ssed off when distorted. This is definitely a guitar for my tastes: A straight forward, hard hitting guitar that sounds best when turned up to 11.
