2012 PRS Custom 24 "Scarlett"

Posted on June 23, 2014   

This is my first "real" PRS. I've had an SE Custom semi-hollow-body and it was great. I also ownand enjoy my PRS SE Angelus acoustic guitar, but this guitar... this guitar, is on a completely different level. Scarlet red flame top finish, bird-in-flight inlays, 59/09 pickups, and on and on. This guitar looks gorgeous and sounds incredible. With a 25" scale length and 24 frets, I found it a bit cramped to play at first, but after several hours of bonding time, I adjusted quickly. It plays effortlessly, and is dynamic and touch sensitive like no other guitar I've ever played. The volume and tone knobs not only look great, but they are more functional than any other guitar I've tried. There is no dramatic drop in volume levels and I'm often rolling back the knob just a touch to alter the gain, then rolling it back up to dig in. The tone knob yields great sounds in from 0-10. I don't know how they do it, but it works. It's early still, but this is definitely fast becoming my favorite guitar.
