    I've been playing this CE24 with Lindy Fralin PUs since 1991. I have owned a ton of guitars over the years and this CE24 is still the best of all of them.

    Lindy made these PUs for me in 1991. When I called to order the PUs, Lindy told me he had Dickie Betts 57 or 58 Les Paul in his shop and he asked me if I wanted a copy of Dickie's PUs. That seemed too good to pass up so I said "yes". These are the best sounding humbuckers I've ever owned. They have a really sweet focused tone that I love.

    I have loved my '91 CE for 20 years. It just received stainless frets so I will not have to re fret it a third time!

    Best guitar ever for me also, mine is blue and the pickups are off the shelf Dimarzio EVO's.

    I'd love to see pics of your 91. I think the alder body is the secret to the great tone on these. I have three other PRS guitars and none of them are as responsive and lively as the 91 CE24. This is readily apparent when playing unplugged.

    I am sold on stainless frets. I have 3 guitars with stainless frets and I have been playing them for nearly two years. There is zero fret wear. One of the three gets about 30 hours of play per week and it has zero fret wear.

    Do you know if your Fralin humbuckers have Alnico 4 magnets?

    Thanks for the demo. I like the tone. Well played. The pickups have some good mids.

    Just got a 2016 CE24 last week, really nice guitar though at the moment I prefer my S2. I must do a comparison between the pickups.
