This PRS CE 24 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar in Vintage Yellow weighs in at a mere 6 lbs 15 oz. The CE Series from PRS offer Bolt-On necks on otherwise traditional PRS concoctions. A Bolt-On neck adds some snap and sparkle to the mix and is easier to work on. These are USA-Made guitars from Paul Reed Smith and offer nothing but the incredible quality that the company is well-known for.
The neck is carved from maple to a Wide-Thin profile. This neck shape seems to be preferred by those who like to play fast. The skinny neck lends itself to fast riffing and blazing through scales. The fingerboard is made from Rosewood, has a 10" fingerboard radius, and sports the famous Birds inlays. Locking tuners make changing strings fast and easy. The scale length measures 25", the typical number you'll find on most PRS Guitars.
The body is made from Mahogany and has a Maple top. The mahogany body has been routed out for Semi-Hollow status giving this guitar a stronger acoustic tone while reducing its weight. This classic tonewood combo of mahogany and maple has withstood the test of time and continues to be one of the more toneful combos to this day! This guitar weighs in at just 6 lbs 15 oz so it is very comfortable while on a strap.
The pickups are a pair of 85/15 humbuckers with the ability to coil tap them for single-coil performance. A Push/Pull on the master volume control splits the coils. A master tone control and a 3-way pickup sector switch cover the electronic components. This one guitar can generate a wealth of tones. Plus, it offers superb tuning stability, which makes it a perfect choice for someone looking for a single guitar to handle long setlists that require a bevy of tones!
From the PRS Website... Combining the snap and sustain of a bolt-on guitar with the airy resonance of a semi-hollow body, the CE 24 Semi-Hollow is a truly unique addition to the PRS Bolt-On lineup. The body pairs the traditional combination of a mahogany back and maple top with a bolt-on maple neck and rosewood fretboard. The neck features a Pattern Thin carve and satin nitro finish for a natural, addictive feel. The electronics consist of a volume and push/pull tone control with a 3-way toggle switch, giving a total of six classic sounds from the PRS 85/15 pickups.
