A PRS fan will absolutely love to add this affordable model to their collection.

Those thinking about a Gibson Les Paul Studio should check this guitar out before making a decision.
2 Volume, 2 Tone knobs - pots are pretty responsive and does a good job allowing players to customize tone from subtle and clean, to hard overdrive sound.

Stop tail is solid, tuners hold well. Very basic setup, but does it well.
Excellent fit and finish. Flawless top and body. Smooth neck, and excellently set up from the factory.

Beautiful guitar. Compared to more expensive Gibson Les Paul Studios, the PRS SE 245 is a league above.

Pick ups are excellent out of the box. I initially thought I would want to swap them out with McCarty's or Dragon II's, but I may stick with them a while. The neck pick up is fat, but clear. The bridge pick up doesn't get too hot, but is amply responsive and crisp.
Great guitar and a great price. High quality instrument at an affordable price point. Closer to USA-made PRS in quality (I own a USA Custom 24 and an SE Custom 22) than other SE models.

I was initially struck by how similar this model is to a 1990 model Les Paul Studio I owned and learned to play on. I immediately felt at home on the PRS. Now comes the bad part and the reason I'm writing this review. I played this guitar maybe four times and on the forth time and in front of an audience, I got no sound from the bridge pickup. Musician's Friend allowed me to return it for credit because it was after the 45 day return period (only by a few weeks). This experience has left me feeling skeptical of PRS imports. I've played for 25+ years and never had a guitar die on me like that let alone one that's brand new.

Comments about PRS SE 245 Electric Guitar:

The picture doesn't do it justice. Everything was perfect from set-up to finish.
Best guitar in it's price range by a long shot. I've put my Gibson LP back in its case. This thing sounds and plays better. I thought it was going to be hard to beat the SE Santana but this one does but not by much. It looks better, is heavier and sounds a little more defined than the Santana. It blows the Gibson Studio LP out of the water. The volomue and tone knobs shape the sound more than most other guitars. You can get anything from country to metal without any problems.

PRS SE245 Great value!

By Bob b

Comments about PRS SE 245 Electric Guitar:

This is a nice guitar at a great value! It plays well and just feels great. Especially with some heavier strings on it than it ships with. I changed the pickups, put an adjustable bridge on it and replaced the tuning keys and now I have a great guitar for a very reasonable price. I could have gotten by without those changes but I seasoned to my own taste while upgrading common weak spots found on almost all instruments in this price range. I really dig this guitar!
2 humbuckers
2 volume
2 tone
3 way selector...... We have seen this before............
24.5" scale is comfortable...No drop c tuning!
The build quality of this guitar is shockingly good. Did not expect too much but I had heard good things about PRS import line. I needed a back up for my US single cut and did not want to shell out another $3k. Frets are great, neck is real comfortable, body is thick and resonant. Finish looks nice too. All in all, this guitar is much nicer than many I have played in and far above its price point.
The best value I have found yet under $1000. Bar None!

    Comments about PRS SE 245 Electric Guitar:

    I went to Sxx Axh on W48th in NY today to buy a PRS SE Bernie Marsden but alas they have none in stock and indeed none in the USA.. so I played 14 different guitars to kill some time...

    I played 4 different PRS SE guitars, 2 PRS (US) guitars, 2 Shecters, and 4 different USA made Gibson guitars ranging fromn $7xx-$9xxx.. but wow wee.... the QC on the PRS KILLS the Chrysler like QC of the Gibson's, merely GIBSON in name today it seems .... very disappointing for GIBSON but not surprising given South Korea's leap in technology especially for manufacturing.... clearly Paul Reed Smith cares about quality..........

    The best quality of ALL the guitars I played was a $7xx PRS SE 245 Ltd guitar... Rolls Royce quality.. I mean IMPECCABLE, sublime and I should know we manufacture products in S Korea, NYC, LA, Tokyo, India, Australia and China and seriously the Korean quality to price ratio is the best for anything but for guitars even the absolute quality is amazing.... on par or better than USA....

    MY only bug bear was the FAT turkey neck at the base and thin scale at the neck.. drove me nuts but as a lifelong STRAT player it may just be my problem.... also those fliipin birds on the fretboard drove me nuts as I got the extra long scale 12th fret mixed up with the 15th etc... MY BAD.....

    I also liked the PUPS on this puppy, very perky when required and filthy nasty when cranked...

    Startling stuff but when rated I gave the PRS guitars all 90/100 upwards and apart from a 59' Gibson with PERFECT tone, build and WEIGHT none of the USA Gibsons, Schecters, ESP etc could come close to the PRS...

    The USA made PRS were even a notch higher.. great stuff.. but pricey.. but for $5xx-$7xx check out a PRS SE KOREAN (Sth) made axe... great stuff

    but this is a guitar for blues, rock, jazz NOT speedy HEAVY METAL...the FAT Turkey neck takes some speed out of the equation...........

    I also liked the Schecter Solo 6 Custom but some of the finish came off in my hands in a simple 10 minute session

    Best Les Paul copy out there - better than most Les Pauls

    By Manimal

    from Portland, Oregon

    See all my reviews

    Comments about PRS SE 245 Electric Guitar:

    I've been playing guitar for over 30 years and I've owned many, many wonderful instruments (including 7 USA PRS's and 6 USA Gibsons). If you're a Les Paul player, this PRS SE 245 is going to blow you away. It plays beautifully, is wonderfully constructed, has GREAT pickups in it (no need for an upgrade unless you have a different tonality in mind), and looks fantastic. The bird inlays are pearloid, not mother-of-pearl like the USA models, and I already mentioned that this is not a real carved top guitar. Other than that, this guitar is pretty much perfect. It's shockingly lightweight, very resonant, and stays in tune like nothing else I own. I actually prefer playing this guitar to my Gibson Les Paul Standard Traditional, and I haven't seen a Les Paul Studio yet that was half the guitar of this PRS. Bottom line: if you like playing Les Pauls but want something different/less expensive, you owe it to yourself to check this baby out.
    Two volumes, two tones, three-way selector switch, wrap-around hardtail, bird inlays, nice flametop; what's not to like? Okay, the top is not really a carved top, more like a flat top with nice edge bevelling. I'll deduct one point for that, though in reality the PRS SE top is more comfortable on the forearm than the Gibson carved top.
    This guitar is better built than my USA Gibson Les Paul Standard Traditional, and plays better to boot. The Gibson probably has the edge tone-wise, but only by a hair. I have yet to play a single Gibson Les Paul Studio that can match the PRS.
    You will not find a better set-neck humbucking equipped guitar in this price range, and probably not for under $1500.

    from dayton,oh

    Comments about PRS SE 245 Electric Guitar:

    I spent 9 hrs in my local GC playing and compairing all LPs and kept comming back to this one. go and spend a day, and see that a PRS se will blow any studio and most standards out of the water. PRS has convinced me, theres is the only guitars I will ever own.
    2 volume,2 tone. The neck feels like butter,The finish is stunning. The body is thicker my Tremonti se
    PRS has done it once more, A fine single cut for under a grand that puts a gibson studio to shame. The guitar is flawless from fit to finish. The pick ups are a litter hotter than the P.A.F,s, but very smooth thru volume control. upper bout switch is silent, frets are finished to prefection
    As I said before if you are looking for a LP style guitar for under a grand you can't go wrong with PRS there QC is what some of our US shops should be going for.

    Comments about PRS SE 245 Electric Guitar:

    In short, I have a really nice Gibson Les Paul that pretty much stays in it's case now. My PRS SE 245 is now my main stage guitar and my Gibson Les Paul is my back-up guitar. I think that's about all that needs to be said.

    Comments about PRS SE 245 Electric Guitar:

    I border between professional and experienced. I play gigs but don't depend on playing to make a living.

    Every time I need to see an improvement in my playing I go buy another PRS. I've bought 3 so far and each time my reason for buying is that after trying several guitars I found one that instantly made my playing better but for different reasons.

    This wider neck expanded my use of the neck in ways I had no idea would happen. My hands and fingers are a little larger than average.

    That means when I play the average guitar the neck and fret layout is too close patterned for my fingers to fit comfortably. Playing guitars with normal size necks all my life has required me to develop very precise movements and positions in order to avoid unwanted results. This has been good for me but has made my learning slower than average.

    So finally I try a wider neck on an electric. I never noticed anything special about playing classical guitars which always seem to have wide necks. But the wider necks on classical guitars were not the same.

    But when you combine the amazing quality of neck and fretboard that PRS makes, in a wider neck like that, it's magic because I can immediately play faster, smoother, and with less detailed moves to avoid the spatial crunch I was getting with narrower and slower necks.

    Even this SE model (swore I'd never buy and SE) is perfect for stage or recording. The electronics are extremely versatile also with the volume knobs that also change the shape of the frequency response as you dial louder or softer.

    The pickups are great. Smooth. A little less attack than humbuckers but more melodic and rich with sweet harmonics also. Love these pickups.

    I always enjoyed a electric guitar that I could rip off heads with by hitting the strings with plenty of attack. But in real life it's rare you can actually use that to it's full effect without other band members failing to appreciate the instant intrusion of head-ripping-off decibels in their face.

    So sacrificing a little bit of the attack of dual coil posts for the fatter single coil, dual magnet, sound of these PRS manufactured P90's.

    Comments about PRS SE 245 Electric Guitar:

    This guitar has the flatest fret-board I've ever seen. Easy playing.Tone om my gosh best tone for under a grand that your likely to find. Played strats for years. Just needed to switch to something easier to play as the shorter scale length and lighter gauge strings makes for easy playability. As I'am dealing with cubital tunnel syndrome that makes my pinky, ring and middle fingers numb, even after surgery. Anyway this guitar has got me back to playing on a regular basis again.And I got it as a 3rd here at the friend, dont know why, doesnt have a scrath on it. Got the tobacco sunburst. went over to the prs website and seen they are know going to be issuing a tortise shell finish, may have to pick one of those up as well, I wish they would offer it in natural with black hardware. Anywho My next guitar will deffinatly be another prs se maybe the kornia singlecut?

    PRS SE245 Review

    By Jim Addison

    from Wisconsin

    Comments about PRS SE 245 Electric Guitar:

    I like to read reviews but I hate making them to be honest. The only reason I am doing this is to hopefully make someone looking at this guitar, feel at ease. Everything about this guitar you have to love. Price, easy to play, looks, feel, birds on the frets...etc. Do yourself a favor and BUY THIS GUITAR!
    This is my very FIRST review ever. I'm only doing this to give you a fully understanding of how good this guitar really is. Features are basic, you get a 3 way toggle switch and 4 knobs, which 2 are for volume. The reason they are basic is because you are buying a PAUL REED SMITH for about 650. Believe me, it's worth not having the bells and whistles and having just a good, solid guitar.
    Quality couldn't have been better. I opened this guitar and it was 10 times better than the picture (i got tobacco sunburst) and it was packaged perfectly. I have some pretty expensive guitars, but this one right out of the box is already my favorite. The scale is 24.5 which is pretty unusual, but I actually really like it. The cosmetics on this guitar will wow your friends, the sound of the PRS will wow the crowd. This guitar was in tune when I took it out of the box. I havn't tuned it since. Honestly, best guitar I own.
    I bought this guitar during the Saint Patty's day sale and got an amazing deal. PRS took some ways to make this guitar affordable. The body isn't "carved" like their expensive models. This guitar isn't made in America, it's made in Korea. The shortcuts are worth it though. This is also an "SE" edition which means "Student Edition." So this is a great learning guitar, but also meant for gigging. I'm only 19, but I've been teaching guitar lessons for almost 4 years now. I have seen/owned/played almost every type of guitar out there. As far as value, I have yet to see one beat this guitar.

    Comments about PRS SE 245 Electric Guitar:

    Go try this thing out if you are looking for a LP style guitar. It plays like a dream and sounds great too. I love the tone this thing puts out. The pickups really are great, and I'm shocked because I am that guy that changes pickups on everything Nice bottom end with no mud and tight highs, plenty of cut for solos. Neck pickup is very smooth, and still... no mud. The neck is what really hooked me on this guitar. Yeah the bird inlays are awesome, but I'm talking about the feel. This is hands down one of the best playing guitars I have ever played, gets even better after a string change.
    Simple... single cutaway, two humbuckers, volume and tone for each pickup, bird inlays, thick mahogony body (flame top), non-locking tuners, and a gig bag. Personally I think a guitar this nice should come with a hard case. I will be getting one soon. It should also come with 10 gauge strings (comes with 9's).
    OUTSTANDING!!! Attention to detail is amazing... and this is made in Korea. I would have thought this to be a USA made guitar if I didn't already know better. It's that good. Again, it shouls come with a hard case. I bought the tobacco sunburst and absolutely love the finish. I know the expression is thrown around alot, but really... the pictures do not do this guitar justice.
    Seeing how this thing plays and sounds compared to other LP type (including Gibson) guitars, I have to give it a 10 for value. It felt better (to me) than guitars around the $1500-$2000 mark.

      Comments about PRS SE 245 Electric Guitar:

      When I first played thus guitar, I couldn't believe it was an import. To me, this one is a game changer as far as American vs imports. This guitar is as good or even better than quite a few American models, and the price is incredible for such a quality instrument.

      With a few modifications, this guitar can hold its own with others that cost 3 times as much. It took a while to get used to the short scale, but once I got the setup right it plays like it was made for my hands.

      The modifications I made were 3 basic ones. First, I replaced the factory nut with a graphite and put on heavier gage strings (Ernie Ball cobalt 10-46). 2nd, I replaced the pots with Duncan Malmsteens. But the really biggest and most important mod was switching out the factory pickups with a pair of Seymour Duncan alnico 2 pro Slash set. These pickups are low output, but deliver some of the sweetest tone you can get.

      With these mods, this guitar can stand toe to toe with a Les Paul standard. Right off the rack, it is nicer than a LP studio.

      PRS knocked it out of the park with an import like this one and it should serve warning to some other companies who are using their name to justify their higher prices.

        Comments about PRS SE 245 Electric Guitar:

        This guitar is awesome. I bought this guitar after not even wanting a new guitar. I fell in love with it instantly. I havent put it down since I brought it home. For the price, Im certain theres not a more versatile guitar out there. Its got a thick enough neck for great tone, but not too think to where you couldn't fly up a scale if you're into that kind of thing. I love the independent volume and tone knobs. You can really do a lot of things with that. The stock pickups are surprisingly great. I did change the bridge pickup out, but thats because I like to customize each guitar I get. It took me a really long time to commit to the idea though, because I was so happy with the stock pickups. My only complaint about the guitar is the nut is only suited for 9 gauge strings. I put 10's on it the day I brought it home, and several of the strings wouldn't fit in the nut, so I had to do a bit of filing - but thats not a difficult job. I've played this guitar almost exclusively in CGCFAD for metal. It's awesome. I would honestly buy more of these. I thought I was an Ibanez man for life - but this has opened up a whole new door for me - I find it hard to play anything else! I can almost guarantee everybody will love something about this guitar. Go try one!

          Just out of the box, this fine crafted instrument played like a dream. I had sought the guitar that was right for me for years, not wanting to make a huge financial investment. I made the right choice without breaking the bank.

          Not only does this guitar have a les paul sound, it looks beautiful! I went with the 'vintage yellow' color and it is gorgeous. I was a bit nervous, after reading /watching reviews online that the bird inlays would throw me off while i was shifting during play...but they didn't. I was nervous that the neck would be too fat, I have small hands, and it fits just right. The action is incredible, the feel of this guitar is just right.

          The pups have a warm, full tone which are exceptionally responsive...this guitar can hold a tone. Legato is super simple and no sound is lost if you're letting it ring out. I don't think I will ever use another guitar brand again. Paul Reed Smith makes amazing guitars!

          I would recommend this to anyone, beginner or veteran.

          Comments about PRS SE 245 Electric Guitar:

          I am a guitar collector and i own about 15 guitars, 3 of which are PRS SE's. These guitars have unbelievable quality for the price.I own a Gibson Les Paul Studio, and in my opinion, the PRS plays better, sounds better, and performs better.I wish there was a wider variety of colors but beggars cant be choosers.If anyone is looking into buying a Gibson, I highly recommend you go out of your way to play with guitar,I think you'll be suprised and choose this over Gibson.

          Note: (I have only compared this to a Les Paul Studio, I have not compared it to the higher models such as the standard or the traditional.)

          I purchased the SE245 in tobbaco sunburst. Let me first just say, I am blown away with this instrument. The sound is superior to any other guitars that I have played so far. The kick of the sound is amazing. The only problem I have encountered is a little fret buzz, but with a quick change of strings and a little set up, this thing kicks some major butt!

          Comments about PRS SE 245 Electric Guitar:

          I was initially struck by how similar this model is to a 1990 model Les Paul Studio I owned and learned to play on. I immediately felt at home on the PRS. Now comes the bad part and the reason I'm writing this review. I played this guitar maybe four times and on the forth time and in front of an audience, I got no sound from the bridge pickup. Musician's Friend allowed me to return it for credit because it was after the 45 day return period (only by a few weeks). This experience has left me feeling skeptical of PRS imports. I've played for 25+ years and never had a guitar die on me like that let alone one that's brand new.

            I ordered/purchased this guitar from my local music store in Tortoise Shell. After it arrived I hated the color, but it played so nice that I had to have it. PRS SE's are great guitars for the money. I also own and SE Santana that I love. After replacing the pups to 57 classics, this guitar sounds fantastic through my Marshhall TSL601. My wife solved the color issue for me. I am going to have custom graphics created for it. Our nephew was a U.S. soldier who died in Iraq. I am honoring him with his portrait on this guitar. I can't wait to see the final product.
