OVERVIEW

A medium scale length and respect for tradition.

For players looking for a classically voiced single-cutaway at a great price, the SE 245 is the answer. All your tones will be covered by the SE 245 Treble and Bass Humbuckers guided by two volume and two tone controls.

With a voice that is classic, eminently recordable and gig ready, the SE 245 is perfect for traditional single-cutaway players. The 24.5 in. scale length makes this instrument instantly comfortable to players who grew up using short scale guitars. Volume and tone controls for each pickup, a 3-way toggle and bird inlays are all standard appointments. Includes gig bag.

    Comments about PRS SE 245 Electric Guitar:

    Love this guitar. Plays so easy & sounds amazing with the standard pups that come with it. I am originally a drummer who has always loved just strumming & singing mostly 60s & 70s songs. Yeah, I'm an old man, but an old man with a good ear. The standard pups on this sound well enough that I don't feel any need to replace them. I have owned bunches of guitars over the pass 50 years, epiphones, fenders, Ibanez', gretsch & washburn. I have a 1964 Gibson Melody Maker, Gretsch Red (Bono), Fender Strat, Ibanez gax70, Fender Sororan & Alvarez Tree of Life acoustics & a 3 string cigar box. I play thru a Fender Super Sonic 60. I have had this PRS SE 245 (Flame Top) for a couple of years now. I love the wide C profile neck. Cording is easy up & down the neck & power cords come alive. Doesn't matter if your playing Beatles or Buddy Guy, this can do it all, & it is Beautiful. Been a MF customer for 20+ years & never a problem, knock on wood. Guess what I am trying to say is, Buy It. You will be glad you did.

      The craftmanship rivals any and even surpasses all of my big name USA made guitars. Looks good, sounds great and the excellent sustain took me by surprise. Best buy out there, especially with my backstage points discount.

          Comments about PRS SE 245 Electric Guitar:

          I played a LP Tribute for a couple years. Since I've got this guitar it just sits in the closet. The overall fit and finish on the PRS is beyond outstanding. It is visually a beautiful guitar to play. When I do an A - B back and forth with my LP the PRS wins. These are not under powered pickups at all. I dressed it up with locking tuners is all. It is hard to find a case for it because of the neck angle. Just take a LP case and remove the foam ramp under the body. The guitar will then lie down nicely. Presto.
