PRS Guitars Announces “Lefty” Custom 24 Limited Edition

There is no limit to the number of guitars PRS will make for this run, but the order window for the Lefty Custom 24 is May 15 – July 15, 2012 only.

Stevensville, MD (May 17, 2012) -- For a limited time only, PRS Guitars’ flagship model – the Custom 24 – will be available to order as a left-handed instrument. A perennial favorite with musicians, such as Orianthi, Tom Johnston of the Doobie Brothers, and Brad Delson of Linkin Park, the Custom 24 is the original PRS…the guitar Paul Smith took to his first tradeshow in 1985. This limited edition model will give left-handed players the opportunity to own a guitar that is musical, reliable, versatile, and eminently PRS.

The “Lefty” Custom 24 features a maple top (choice of flame or quilt), mahogany back, 24 fret mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, “old school” abalone bird inlays, PRS’s redesigned 5-way blade switch, which offers a dual humbucker option, and 59/09 treble and bass pickups with contoured bobbins (new for 2012) that arc with the strings for a more spread out, open tone. 10-top flame or quilt maple as well as gold, nickel, or hybrid hardware are also available options.

There is no limit to the number of guitars PRS will make for this run, but the order window for the Lefty Custom 24 is May 15 – July 15, 2012 only. Interested customers can place orders with their authorized PRS dealer during the ordering timeframe or check in with an authorized PRS dealer at any time to see what configurations they have available.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
