"I've always thought CE's were really great guitars, and I couldn't be happier with this signature model. It can get pretty much any sound you want it to, it's super comfortable to play, and it's just cool to see a CE with a maple board and a Floyd. I hope everyone loves it as much as I do." - Dustie Waring / Between the Buried and Me
The progressive metal band Between the Buried and Me has a sound that is both heavy and melodic, lush and menacing. It is this demand for versatility without sacrifice that led to the development of guitarist Dustie Waring’s latest PRS signature model: the DW CE 24 “Floyd.” This model starts with the PRS CE bolt-on platform and includes a satin-finished maple neck, maple fretboard, a slightly modified Pattern Thin neck carve (Waring’s carve is slightly thinner front to back), and Floyd Rose tremolo system.
The pickups and electronics are also unique to Waring’s signature axe. The pickups are Waring’s signature Mojotone “DW Tomahawk” pickups. Made with a blend of Ceramic and Alnico magnets and a special winding technique, DW Tomahawks have plenty of output and big bottom end while remaining articulate and clear - a unique quality for high gain pickups. Paired with a volume and tone control and 5-way blade pickup selector that have been shi ed slightly to allow plenty of room to work the tremolo, the DW CE 24 “Floyd” is comfortable, fun, and inspiring to play.
The DW CE 24 “Floyd” comes with satin black hardware and is available in either Gray Black or Waring Burst.
There is no cap to the number of DW CE 24 “Floyd” signature guitars that will be made, but the order window is limited to January 16 – March 31, 2018.
