PRS’ Roasted Maple SE Custom 24 is now available in the US

Limited-edition model was previously exclusive to Europe.

PRS SE Custom 24 Roasted Maple

Back in April, PRS released a limited run of SE Custom 24’s in Europe. These special-edition axes, which featured roasted maple necks and fretboards, are now shipping to the US.

According to PRS, the roasting process brings two benefits: it gives the maple a striking golden colour and also enhances the strength of the wood.

Otherwise, the limited-edition models retain the specs of their production-line siblings. These include a maple top, mahogany back, a “Wide Thin” neck profile as well as a pair of 85/15 “S” humbuckers. The pups are wired to a three-way pickup selector, master volume and master tone with push/pull coil-splitting.

The US limited-run comprises less than 2,000 pieces. For more details, head over to
