PRS Custom 24 Purple Mist 10 Top Pattern Thin

The Custom 24 is the quintessential PRS guitar. This iconic instrument was the first model that Paul Reed Smith brought to the public at PRS Guitars’ first Winter NAMM show in 1985 and has been a top seller ever since. Played by internationally touring artists, gigging musicians, and aspiring players, the Custom 24 features PRS’s patented Gen III tremolo system and PRS 85/15 pickups with volume and tone controls and a 5-way blade switch. 85/15 pickups were personally designed by Paul Reed Smith to offer remarkable clarity and extended high and low end.

The Custom 24 is the original PRS. Since its introduction, it has offered a unique tonal option for serious players and defined PRS tone and playability.

Pattern vs Pattern Thin Neck

The Pattern neck is a medium-sized neck with a comfortable, round shape. It has a thickness of around 28mm at the 1st fret and 30mm at the 12th fret. The shoulders of the neck are slightly asymmetrical, with the bass side being slightly larger than the treble side. This gives the neck a comfortable, natural feel.

The Pattern Thin neck, on the other hand, is a slimmer, more modern neck with a flatter shape. It has a thickness of around 26mm at the 1st fret and 28mm at the 12th fret, making it easier to play fast. The shoulders of the neck are more symmetrical than the Pattern neck, giving it a more streamlined, modern look.

Overall, the Pattern neck is ideal for players who prefer a more traditional, comfortable neck shape, while the Pattern Thin neck is better suited for players who prioritize speed and ease of playing. Personal preference plays a big role in choosing between these neck profiles, and players should try both to determine which feels best for them.

What is a 10 Top?

The term "10 Top" refers to a grade of maple used on the top of certain Paul Reed Smith (PRS) guitars. This grade of maple is characterized by a visually stunning, symmetrical wood grain pattern with no "blemishes" or "defects", and is considered to be of the highest quality.

There are a number of benefits to having a 10 Top on a PRS guitar. Firstly, the high-quality maple used on the top of the guitar not only looks beautiful, but can also contribute to a brighter, more resonant tone. The use of a 10 Top maple top can also increase the sustain of the guitar, allowing notes to ring out longer.

The Range

each range offers a slightly different balance of features, construction, and price, making it possible for players at all levels to find a PRS guitar that suits their needs and budget.

Core / Custom

The PRS Core line is the company's flagship range, featuring high-end, USA-made guitars that are designed to offer the ultimate in tone, playability, and craftsmanship. Core guitars typically feature premium tonewoods, high-end electronics, and meticulous attention to detail throughout the build process. These instruments are generally priced at the higher end of the PRS range.

Bolt-On / CE / Standard

The PRS Bolt-On line features guitars that are similar to the Core range in terms of quality and construction, but with a bolt-on neck joint instead of the traditional set-neck joint found on Core models. This design offers a slightly different feel and tone, and allows for easier maintenance and repair of the instrument. Bolt-On models are generally priced slightly lower than their Core counterparts.


the PRS S2 line is a more affordable range of USA-made guitars that are designed to offer a balance of high-end features and affordability. These instruments are built with many of the same materials and construction techniques as Core and Bolt-On models, but with a simpler aesthetic and streamlined set of features. S2 guitars feature a set-neck joint, and are generally priced lower than Core and Bolt-On models.


The PRS SE line is the company's entry-level range, featuring guitars that are manufactured in Asia to PRS's standards. These instruments are designed to offer a decent level of quality and playability at an affordable price point, and are available in a range of models and finishes. SE guitars feature bolt-on necks, and are priced lower than all other PRS series.

Private Stock

The Private Stock line offers a level of customization and personalization that is not available in any other PRS range. Customers can work directly with a PRS Private Stock dealer or with PRS's Custom Shop team to design their own unique guitar, selecting everything from the tonewoods and hardware to the electronics and finishes. Each instrument is built to the customer's exact specifications, with meticulous attention to detail and a focus on tone, playability, and beauty.

Private Stock guitars are priced at the highest end of the PRS range, and are considered some of the most sought-after and collectible instruments in the world. These guitars are designed for the most discerning players and collectors, who are willing to pay a premium for a truly one-of-a-kind instrument that is built to their exact specifications.

Some Items on ZipMoney, ZipPay, or Studio19 Finance may not be eligable for free delivery. We will contact you if this is the case.
Some large/heavy items (over 20kg) , or items deemed not able to be delivered by our standard courier, Australia Post, may have an extra shipping charge.

Free Postage Details
Some items such as certain pedals and stomp boxes, accessories and effects may have free postage. This will go via the cheapest method. Courier/Express/Insurance/Registered Post would be extra. Please contact us for more information or check the "Free Freight" tab at the top of our website.

Express Post
Sometimes we can Express Post/Courier your items if necessary but additional charges may apply. Orders generally leave at 2:00pm daily so if you need an item ASAP, make sure it is ordered by 1pm (please call 1300 687 672) to ensure there is stock of the item and to get an estimated time of arrival. Express post is to capital / major cities only (for next day service). This service is for small items under 3KG only!

Do you offer freight insurance?
We certainly do, and highly recommend it as Australia is a big country. Insurance / Shipping protection is available and is only 1.5% of the value of the goods.

Of course! Unlike some stores, we do not charge for you to pick up in store. We are open 7 days for your convenience, but please give us a date and time of pick up so we can make sure your goods are ready.

Valid ID will be required for picking up goods that have been paid for online or over the phone.

What if I am not home for the delivery?
IF you are not home, the driver will leave a card in your mail box so you can pick-up from the local depot/post office or arrange a re-delivery. 
We have found it to be much quicker & easier to have all items sent to a business address where someone will be present.

Can I ask for the courier to leave the goods at my door?
Whilst it Is possible, we highly recommend that you do not do it. All freight warranty & insurance will be void. Only do so at your own risk, if someone steals it, Musos Corner & The freight company will not be held accountable.
If you will not be able to take the delivery, it might be worth asking a friend or neighbour to take delivery of it for you.

What if it appears my goods have been freight damaged?
Please check all items before signing for them! This is very important. Do not sign for an item that appears damaged, to sign for them means "Signed for in good working order" and subsequently is out of the couriers hands, and voids insurance. If this was not possible, there can be a 24 Hour window to try and claim insurance, please contact us & the courier immediately. This only applies to orders that have paid for Insurance & are sent via courier. 

Can the courier or delivery person call me prior to delivery?
Unfortunately as often as we request this, we get denied as many times. No courier or Australia post worker will call you prior to delivery despite any bribes we may try and offer.
If you select courier we will send you a tracking number which you can use to find out an estimated time of arrival for your goods, or alternatively have it sent to a business address.

Can I have my goods delivered on the weekend or after hours?
Unfortunately this is not possible at the current point in time, however you are welcome to pickup in store late night Thursday or on weekends from our Newcastle store. Please contact us to set a pickup time.

Send to a PO BOX?
We cannot ship guitars to a PO BOX under any circumstances. Australia Post will not accept deliveries over 105cm LCM, we cannot change their policy.


Do i need to set up my product?
All guitars come fully set up ready to play (after a quick tuning). Banjos will need to be set up after delivery as they cannot be shipped set up unless they are bought with a case. Some products like piano stands require some basic assembly as they are flat packed for shipping. Digitial pianos and clavinovas may require some simple assembly.

Are all products brand new?
Yes! Everything we sell, unless clearly specified, is considered brand new with full warranty. Some items, especially guitars will have been taken out of their boxes for inspection, demonstration or quality assurance. This in no way effects your warranty supplied to you by Musos Corner or Australian consumer law.

Are the items individually photographed?
All images are for illustration purposes unless otherwise specified. While we wish we could take photos of every exact item, this is not always possible and we use the pictures supplied by either the a) Australian Supplier or b) Manufacturer. 
If you require a specialty photo of your instrument prior to purchase, just contact us to see if this is available.

Does my item come with Australian warranty
All items we sell come with Australian Warranty, please read our returns policy fo rmore information. Some manufactuers provide aditional warranty over the 12 months once registering the product with them.
