The PRS CE 24 Mahogany guitars are double-cut, 24 fret guitars with a mahogany body and a 25 inch scale maple neck with Rosewood fretboard. It is a relaunch of the 1988 PRS CE 24 guitar which also came with an Alder body. After many years this version has the maple headstock again instead of the black headstock with Paul Reed Smith signature.
The original CEs where known simply as the "PRS Electric" but by 1995 these models were labelled PRS CE. PRS couldn't use the model name "Classic Electric" due to trademark issues with Peavey so they used the abbreviation CE instead.
