Description: 

The PRS CE 24 Bolt-on Maple Top guitars are, like the PRS CE 24's,  double-cut, 24 fret guitars with an alder/mahogany body and a 25 inch scale maple neck with Rosewood fretboard and as the title implies a maple top.

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.

Through the years

  • The first version PRS CE 24 Maple top version  (1990-1994) had an alder body.
  • The second version (1995-2000) had a mahogany body and an option for the PRS Stoptail bridge.
  • The third version (2001-2004) dropped the option for the PRS Stoptail bridge again and also the option for a regular neck, leaving only the option for a wide-thin neck.
  • The fourth version (2005-2007) brought back the option for the volume/tone/3-way toggle control configuration besides the volume/tone/5-way rotary knob configuration.
