PRS S2 Custom 24: 85/15 "S" Pickups Push/Pull Tone Control for Coil-Tapping PRS Patented Tremolo, Molded
Aleksey actually purchased two of them, blue and red, but played only the blue, as the red was too late. On the day of arrival, Aleksey called Eugene Borovikov to share his excitement about this guitar, but Eugene managed to cut his finger on that very day and could not attend what promised to be an engaging test drive of a new instrument. Eugene regretted that later, learning the hardest way to never refuse an invitation from a friend to share a moment of beautiful music making. Nicely combining the features of a Fender Stratocaster and a Gibson Les Paul guitars and taking them to a new level with the 24 fret configuration, this guitar provided Aleksei with enough versatility and playability to truly shine in his virtuoso playing. This guitar sounded great through any amplifier available to Aleksei and felt equally comfortable at rehearsals or gigs. PRS was Aleksey's last guita; his very last rehearsal, just a few hours before his passing, is captured in this video, mastered by his band mates.
Paul Reed Smith (PRS) S2 Custom 24 takes the original PRS Custom 24 and re-imagines it with stripped-down features and a new aesthetic. Retaining the classic maple top/mahogany back combination with our classic body shape and an asymmetrical beveled top, this guitar is resonant with a funky familiarity. Its versatility comes from its 85/15 "S" pickups, push/pull tone knob, and 3-way blade switch. Familiar for PRS players of old, and a fresh take for players of all types.
