PRS / Custom 24 Vintage Yellow Terry Britten / 1986 / Guitar

The pre-factory PRS guitars are very rare and exceptional guitars that are part of guitar history. This Custom 24 is even privileged to be a major part of pop history. We at TFOA are honored to offer you this astounding PRS. The Custom 24 is the ultimate PRS guitar. This iconic instrument was the first model that Paul Reed Smith showed to the public at the very first Winter NAMM show in 1985. Shortly thereafter, Doug Chandler, one of the founders of Chandler Guitars Ltd, ordered this exact Custom 24 from Paul. This very rare pre-factory Custom 24, executed in a perhaps even rarer finish, was the first PRS to be imported to the UK. Just days later, she was sold to Terry Britten, a giant singer-songwriter who wrote legendary hits for Tina Turner, Michael Jackson, Meat Loaf & Bonnie Raitt, among others. After a number of years, Britten sold the guitar back to Chandler Guitars, where the guitar remained until the company closed its doors for good. This completely original Custom 24 contains a different body than a standard Custom 24. The mahogany body is thinner and is slightly more rounded which feels very comfortable. The exceptionally flamed maple top shows that the first PRS 'already used the best pieces of wood. The mahogany neck has a Brazilian rosewood fretboard with mother-of-pearl 'moon' inlay and ends at the headstock with locking tuners. The body contains the original Treble & Bass, controlled with a master volume, 5-way rotary switch and 'sweet' switch. She is in very good condition and is exceptionally clean. The top has virtually no wear and the back has traces of use including a light rash, a few dings and a chip.

I have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
