Based on PRS’s 30th Anniversary Custom 24, the Fatback 24 instead features a thicker ‘McCarty depth’ body and hand-selected, up-graded timbers – just 60 Fatback 24s will be produced and made available.

Official press release:

Despite the extra depth of the body, the use of lightweight Ribbon Stripe African Mahogany ensures perfect balance, with a wide curl flame maple ‘10-top’ making the Fatback 24 a typically visually arresting PRS proposition. The guitar’s aesthetic appeal is furthered with the presence of 30th Anniversary mother of pearl birds inlays, unusual ivoroid fingerboard purfling and a choice of six colours: Charcoal Burst, Dark Cherry Sunburst, Fire Red Burst, Faded Whale Blue, Black Gold and Orange Tiger.

In terms of playability and tone the Fatback 24 features a Pattern Thin carve mahogany neck (with Gabon Ebony fingerboard and headstock veneer) and PRS’s new 85/15 treble and bass humbuckers harnessed to volume, tone (with push-pull coil-tap) and three-way toggle switch. A PRS tremolo system rounds out the spec of the very special limited edition model, which ships in a similarly limited Black Paisley PRS case.

 The Fatback 24 price of £3750 / €5400
