PRS announce Mark Holcomb Custom 24

Prior to Namm 2015, Paul Reed Smith has just announced an addition to the signature models. Now Periphery’s Mark Holcomb will have his own signature model featuring Seymour Duncan Alpha & Omega Pickups, a Quilted 10 top, and all the awesome features you would expect from a PRS Guitar.

What PRS have to say…

The band Periphery has become a force to be reckoned with in the progressive metal scene with their unique “djent” sound, poly–rhythmic patterns and soaring melodies. Guitarist Mark Holcomb helps achieve this full, lethal sound with PRS guitars loaded with Seymour Duncan Mark Holcomb Signature Pickups dubbed “Alpha” and “Omega.”

“As someone who’s been obsessed with PRS since my youth, it has been an absolute dream to be able to develop my own PRS signature guitar. For nearly the past year, we’ve designed this instrument with the intention of making it not only unique, but something that would satisfy my every taste as a guitarist, from both a technical and aesthetic standpoint. The result is something that truly stands on its own in the PRS lineup, and a guitar that I can undoubtedly say is the best instrument I’ve ever laid my hands on,” – Mark Holcomb, Periphery

Features unique to the Mark Holcomb Custom 24 include a 25.5″ scale length rock maple neck with ebony fretboard and 20″ radius, satin finish, a newly designed PRS plate–style bridge, green abalone “J” birds, black Hipshot O–ring controls, and the guitarist’s signature Seymour Duncan “Alpha” and “Omega” pickups. Holcomb designed these pickups to be captivatingly clear and punchy – perfect for driving the Periphery sound. As with all Custom 24 models, the Holcomb Custom 24 also comes standard with a carved, figured maple “10” Top, mahogany back, 24 fret Pattern Thin neck, PRS Phase III locking tuners, and volume, tone, 5–way blade switch control layout.
