PRS Limited Edition '85 Throwback Custom 24
Pre-Owned 2011 - Good Condition

Cool, rare guitar. Built like the original 24's only 25 years after the fact! Paul even commissioned John to reproduce the original 1-piece trems! Guitar shows how much it was loved with some dings on the lower bout and some buckle rash but other than that - it can still rock like it's 1985!

When Paul Smith started building guitars, he did it to match his passion for music with his admiration of the artistry of guitar building. Little did he know that he would make an indelible mark on the guitar world when he began production of the PRS Custom 24 in 1985.

To honor these fabled guitars, Guitar Center Platinum teamed up with Paul Reed Smith in 2011 to produce the PRS Custom 24 Throwback Series. Limited to a total production of 100 guitars and offered in an assortment of six colors, these guitars pay tribute to that first year of production. Details such as a small neck heel, a reproduction Mann one-piece bridge, locking winged tuners, Sweet Switch, 59/09 pickups and original-style blue-lined case were included in the design of this fantastic guitar.
