Missed Connections: 30th Anniversary Lefty Custom 24

Every once in a while on our blog you’ll see a post titled “missed connections.” It’s our way of making sure you have a second chance to see all of the great limited run guitars that we make - often in very small batches! This “missed connection” features the 30th Anniversary Lefty Custom 24 - a small batch run of left handed guitars with 30th Anniversary Custom 24 specs!

2015 was a special year for us as we celebrated our company’s 30th Anniversary. To bring in this milestone year right, we developed a number of 30th Anniversary models including this Lefty Custom 24 variation. As many know, the Custom 24 is the original PRS - It defines the playability and tone that PRS guitars are known for and has been a constant favorite of players worldwide ever since its official introduction in 1985.

The 30th Anniversary “Lefty” Custom 24 features a maple top, mahogany back, mahogany neck, rosewood fretboard, Mother of Pearl 30th Anniversary bird inlays, the PRS 5-way blade switch, and the new 85/15 treble and bass pickups. Designed personally by Paul Reed Smith in conjunction with the new 58/15 pickups for PRS’s 30th Anniversary year, 85/15’s are uncovered pickups with remarkable clarity and extended high and low end perfect for more modern applications. This blend of tradition and innovation mirrors the culture that PRS developed over the last three decades.

Fewer than 200 30th Anniversary Lefty Custom 24’s were made and only a handful remain available for sale.

Hey Mark, check out our newly announced SE Custom 24 Lefty. A great guitar at a wonderful price point!

Hello. What models do you offer in left handed. I've been on your web site and it looks like just 2 or 3 models. I probably could go with a custom built but I can't afford that. Thanks. Mark DePree

Guys, teach your children like righties. They will thank you every time they want to buy a guitar. PRS, it's time to think a bit in lefties! Or maybe not... Cheers.

Why this discrimination against lefty guitar players PRS? Give us the Custom 22/24 and CE/SE few models please, i am sure lots of lefty players are interested. Any plans for 2018 left handed models? [email protected]: you there man?

I've just purchased a second hand PRS McCarty Lefty Ltd. I absolutely love it. However this guitar has no inlays on the fret-board, only position markers on the top of the neck. My assumption is that a new fret-board has been fitted. Would that be correct? Were there any Lefty Ltd models without fret-board inlays produced?

Hi PRS, Will you be offering lefty guitars in the SE lineup anytime soon? I already have a lefty custom 24 in blood orange and love it! I would like to have an SE as well.

I'm a lefty player, and was lucky to find a used 30th anniversary custom 24. Love it, a great player and beautiful guitar.
