Description: 

The PRS CE 24 Alder guitars are double-cut, 24 fret guitars with an alder body and a 25 inch scale maple neck with Rosewood fretboard. It is a relaunch of the 1988 PRS CE 24 guitar but was only manufactured for one year in 2008. There were options for the volume/tone/3-way toggle configuration as wel as the volume/tone/5-way rotary knob configuration. This model was only available with the wide thin neck.

The original CEs where known simply as the "PRS Electric" but by 1995 these models were labelled PRS CE. PRS couldn't use the model name "Classic Electric" due to trademark issues with Peavey so they used the abbreviation CE instead.
