Re: price of a PRS custom24?
Don't know why I forgot to mention it yesterday, but you also might want to check out the Standard 24's. They are exactly the same as Custom 24's but with no maple top (solid mahogany body). They're typically ~$300 less than the most inexpensive Custom 24's, and it's generally easier to find a Standard with dot inlays than a Custom.
I have several Custom 24's and one Standard 24, and they really do feel exactly the same. The Standard has a little darker of a tone due to the lack of maple, but I'd say it's an equally good tone, just different.
