Blue Matteo Ten Top

At the intersection of form and function lives this ravishing 10 Top Blue Matteo PRS.

Featuring a highly flamed 10 Top graded Maple top in eye-popping Blue Matteo finish, a dramatic grain pattern on the Mahogany body, and beautiful natural finish binding, this Custom 24 turns heads every time I play it (mostly mine).

The Custom 24 is the quintessential PRS guitar. This iconic instrument was the first model that Paul Reed Smith brought to the public at PRS Guitars’ first Winter NAMM show in 1985 and has been a top seller ever since. Played by internationally touring artists, gigging musicians, and aspiring players, the Custom 24 features PRS’s patented tremolo system and PRS 85/15 treble and bass pickups with volume and tone controls and a 5-way blade switch. 85/15 pickups were personally designed by Paul Reed Smith for PRS’s 30th Anniversary. They offer remarkable clarity and extended high and low end.

The Custom 24 is the original PRS. Since its introduction, it has offered a unique tonal option for serious players and defined PRS tone and playability.
