PRS recently reintroduced the CE range back into its line-up, after deciding there was space in its world for a classic bolt-on design. And boy have they got it right. The PRS CE24 is, by any measure, a tremendous guitar and fully deserves the number one spot on this sub-$2,000 electrics list. It looks, feels, sounds and plays like an elite instrument. Everything from the quality of the build through to the wide range of tones from the 85/15 pickups screams class.
The modern iteration comes in a range of distinguished finishes, but whichever you choose, the trusty combination of mahogany, maple and rosewood, and some truly wonderful fittings, will be sure to bring a smile to your face.
