This expands the company's popular and ever growing SE line, adding more shred and progressive style options to their already extensive line up of instruments.

PRS has been coming up with more guitar lines, expanding their guitars to cover more affordable price points. In the midst of this expansion, the company does not neglect adding to the very popular SE line, especially since it helped the brand reach more guitarists and gain worldwide recognition, enabling them to compete with older and bigger guitar manufacturers.

The 30th Anniversary SE Floyd Custom24, adds a commonly requested feature to their popular SE Custom 24 model, the Floyd Rose 1000 Series tremolo. This continues the company's challenge to other affordable Floyd Rose equipped guitars that are available from metal and shred style friendly brands. They do so without going beyond their specialty, which is maintaining the aesthetic and sonic appeal of the PRS Custom 24 model.

PRS SE Line Business Manager Doug Shive said, "The SE line continues to provide players worldwide with an affordable guitar of excellent quality. The new 30th Anniversary SE “Floyd” Custom 24 is yet another great value guitar and one that allows players to dig in, rock out, and dive away in style."

Following after the original Custom 24 that Paul Reed Smith took to his first tradeshow, this guitar has a double cutaway mahogany body, with beveled maple top. Adding eye candy to the guitar's body is a flame maple veneer. Neck is crafted from maple, topped by rosewood fretboard that follows the specs of the original, having 24 frets and 25" scale length. As part of their celebration, the guitar comes with 30th Anniversary commemorative bird inlays.

This Floyd Rose equipped guitar is equipped with vintage style pickups (SE HFS and SE Vintage), an interesting mixture of old school and new school guitar technology. The pickups are wired to a 3-way blade switch with push/pull tone control for coil tapping, allowing for expanded tone options. Finally, the guitar comes with a "1000 Series" Floyd Rose tremolo, which is described as have the same exact specifications as the original Floyd.
