PRS SE 245 Black

From Sweetwater:

The PRS SE 245 solidbody electric guitar delivers the classic dual-humbucking, singlecut tones everyone loves in a high-quality, high-value package. The comfortable single-cutaway maple-topped mahogany body and wide-fat profile neck deliver great playability and warm, detailed tones. The shorter 24.5" scale length of the 245 makes bending easier and gives your strings a slinkier feel. The headstock has been redesigned to now sport Paul Reed Smith's signature, adding extra "cool" factor. And a pair of SE 245 humbucking pickups gives you all the clarity and punch you need for everything from high-gain rock to clean, smoky jazz. The PRS SE 245 is an affordable tone machine that's ready for any gig.
PRS SE 245 Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Wide-fat neck profile feels great and plays smoothly
  • Fat tone from a pair of SE 245 humbucking pickups
  • PRS quality in every guitar
Wide-fat neck profile feels great and plays smoothly

Neck shapes are critical to your playing experience and a hallmark of PRS quality. The PRS SE 245 is fitted with their wide-fat neck profile. Perfected after years of prototyping, the wide-fat neck is based on designs Paul Reed Smith did in the '70s and '80s for Carlos Santana, Peter Frampton, and Howard Leese of Heart. The SE 245's rosewood fingerboard is smooth and warm sounding, and the iconic bird inlays are the calling card of this top-notch guitar maker.

Fat tone from a pair of SE 245 humbucking pickups

The PRS SE 245 is fitted with two PRS-designed SE 245 humbucking pickups. Based around great vintage humbuckers, these pickups are clear and punchy. Sweetwater guitarists immediately noticed the ability of these pickups to conjure mellow chords one minute and punch the front of an amplifier for high-gain tones while maintaining attack and clarity the next. And the mahogany body ensures these pickups deliver the full low-mid tone that fattens all of your single-note playing for singing sustain.

PRS quality in every guitar

The SE 245, like all PRS guitars, is designed for top-notch performance right out of the case. Since 2001, the SE Series has provided excellent tone and playability at an incredibly affordable price point. Constructed from quality tonewoods and components, these instruments carry on a commitment to quality that's been the brand's hallmark since Paul Reed Smith started handbuilding guitars for some of the most elite players in the world.

PRS SE 245 Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Mahogany-bodied single-cutaway guitar with flame maple veneer
  • Vintage-voiced SE 245 humbucking pickups
  • Wide-fat neck shape is comfortable to play
  • 24.5" scale length
  • PRS-designed tuners and stoptail offer tuning stability
  • 22-fret mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard
  • Iconic PRS bird inlays

I learned to play on this guitar and I would pick it in a fight over a Stratocaster or a Les Paul. The tone and sustain of this guitar go unmatched by any other guitar in this price range. The SE 245 is a great guitar to learn to play electric but is also suitable as a touring guitar for professional musicians. 

There is a small paint chip on the headstock but otherwise this guitar is in great condition and sounds excellent. 

I am selling off my first guitars so that I can get something new so I need to find a new home for this PRS where it can be played. Feel free to message me with any questions or inquiries for more pictures!
