Wildwood Guitars says:

The Custom 24 Retro takes its inspiration from Paul Reed Smith’s legendary first NAMM guitar from 1985. Unlike the original, this Custom 24 Retro sports a sweet Sandstorm Fade finish. Also, it has a fatter mahogany back, a smaller neck heel, and an exaggerated body carve and scoop. It sure shows off the glorious grain in that quilted maple top! And let’s not forget the Brazilian rosewood fingerboard, either! Oddly enough, the Brazilian board isn’t even the most opulent thing on the neck. That honor belongs to the real 10-carat gold outlines around the bird inlays!

Great sounds abound, too! With a pair of 85/15 humbucking pickups, the Custom 24 Retro is ready to provide you with all sorts of classic PRS tone. And, for additional versatility, it comes equipped with a “sweet switch.” Many of Paul Reed Smith’s early guitars had sweet switches, and they were awesome! Basically, sweet switches simulate the capacitance of a 100+ foot-long guitar cable. So, it tames the high-end and takes the voice of this guitar from modern heat to vintage smokiness.

The PRS Custom 24 Retro is ridiculously resonant, has buttery handfeel, and pays tribute to one of the most iconic PRS Guitars ever…
