Welcome, you are looking at a great piece. This is the 2003 PRS USA Custom 24 Brazilian Electric Guitar. 25" scale length. 1.69" nut width. .86" 5th fret depth. 7 lbs 8 oz.
In 2003 PRS created a small run of 500 Custom 24's with a Brazilian rosewood fingerboard and headstock overlay.
This is not only a first year example, with the rare '10' quilt top, it is only a very low number- just #33/500.
The core of this is Custom 24- mahogany body with a quilt maple top- the classic tonewood combination.
This creates deep lows, sweet mids, and articulate highs.
The great natural tone here is grabbed by a pair of 1957/2008 humbucking pickups.
These are obviously an addition to this 2003 as they were released in 2008, but they are very special pickups.
PRS acquired the rights to the original magnet wire from the 1950's humbucking pickups.
They used this magnet wire to create the 1957/2008 pickups, giving them not just '57 mojo, but a very solid foundation to recreate the original PAF tones.
The pickups were not available after market, they were only available on a handful of special edition models, and are highly sought after.
Using the rotary selector, there is a truly special tone set is available here
The original HFS & Vintage pickups are also included.
The wide thin mahogany neck has a great oval C profile- super comfortable while creating great tone transfer.
The look here is incredible- trans black finish showing off the quilted maple, Brazilian rosewood board, Brazilian rosewood headstock overlay, natural flamed maple binding, abalone bird inlays, locking machines and chrome/gold two-tone hardware.
This Custom 24 Brazilian is in very good overall condition- there is typical light playwear, but nothing that would show in pics, and certainly nothing that affects the performance whatsoever.
The frets here are clean- set up with action of 3/32" at the 12th fret low E.
This auction includes the original hardshell case.
This is your chance to get your hands on a work of art from PRS.
