The original CE was introduced in 1988 and offered players an unmistakable Custom shape with the added snap of a bolt-on maple neck. After more than a decade out of the catalog, the CE is back and better than ever! The CE 24 body is the traditional PRS Custom shape with a mahogany back and maple top. The reveal edges show the flame of the maple top and set off the custom, one-of-a-kind finish. The bolt-on neck is carved from a chunk of maple with the pattern thin shape. This is an extremely comfortable shape with a nitro satin finish that allows your hand to fly around the fretboard with ease and comfort. The bolt-on construction adds a snap and sparkle that is not often found in set-neck and neck-through guitars. Overlaying the neck is a Rosewood fretboard with the "Birds" inlays. PRS locking machine heads coupled with a PRS-designed floating bridge assure stable tuning while allowing you to accent your playing with some whammy bar fun. Featured on the CE are 85/15 pickups which offer incredible clarity with an extended high and low end. Controls include one push/pull tone, one volume, and one 3-way switch for six classic combinations.
This particular guitar has been opened and inspected and is currently on display on our sales floor. Customers have had limited access, but it has been played a handful of times by potential buyers. As a result, it may show minor signs of handling like fingerprints, dust, or some very light pick swirl. The guitar comes with a PRS Deluxe gig bag, but original packaging is no longer available.
