PRS Guitars’ Flagship Model Gets a Subtle New Look and an Enhanced Tonal Spectrum
January  18, 2012 (STEVENSVILLE, MD) – Paul Reed Smith Guitars’ Custom 24 model  was updated in 2011 with new pickups and a redesigned 5-way blade switch, giving the flagship model a new voice and even more  versatility. For 2012, its revered uncovered 59/09 pickups are being  updated with new, contoured bobbins that arc with the strings for a more  spread out, open tone. First seen on PRS Collection instruments, these bobbins are a continuation of Paul Reed Smith’s quest  to continually tweak and refine the company’s instruments in subtle  ways with the goal of culminating in a more musical instrument always in  mind.
“Originally,  humbucking pickups were covered to combat electrostatic and  electromagnetic hum. As the years passed and the covers came off, there was a gap between the pickup and the pickup ring. These  new bobbins not only provide extended low and high end, they look like  they were meant to be uncovered and in a ring,” said Paul Reed Smith.
These  new bobbins can be seen for the first time on PRS Custom 24 guitars at  the winter NAMM show in Anaheim, California from January 19-22, 2012 at PRS Booth #5320.
