Paul Reed Smith’s Custom 24 model is a classic among the company’s now extensive line-up – the first model that Paul Smith took to the NAMM show in 1985 and the guitar that really launched the company.
Now, for a limited time, PRS has made available a left-handed version - the Lefty Custom 24. The model sticks faithfully to the blueprint of the regular CU24, with mahogany back and neck, maple top, rosewood fretboard and old school abalone birds inlays. The guitar is powered by a pair of 59/09 treble and bass humbuckers with contoured bobbins (new for 2012) that arc with the strings for more open tone – these are harnessed to a redesigned five-way selector switch that allows access to a ‘dual humbucker’ option for the first time.
The list of finish options for the Lefty Custom 24 is extensive – 21 translucent and opaque colours are on offer, from Black and Gold Top through Blue Crab Blue to McCarty Tobacco Sunburst and Whale Blue.
Limited supplies of the PRS Lefty CU24 are expected in the UK from late June.
