The Paul Reed Smith SE Standard 245 Electric Guitar is an affordable, gig- and studio-ready axe with an old-school sound and famous PRS quality, tone and playability.

Since 2001, the SE Series has been offering incredible quality and great tone at affordable prices. The introduction of the SE Standard models represents a significant extension of the SE Series into the <$500 price point. The goal of the SE Series has always been to provide a quality instrument to players of all levels – one that would not fight the player, but encourage him or her to start and to keep playing. PRS is proud to extend this promise to an even more attainable price point with the SE Standard lineup.

The Paul Reed Smith SE Standard 245 has a classic voice that is eminently recordable and gig-ready. The 24.5" scale length makes this instrument instantly comfortable to players who prefer short-scale guitars. Classic PRS appointments include a set Wide Fat mahogany neck, rosewood fretboard with bird inlays, PRS-Designed stoptail bridge, tuners, and 245 humbuckers. The all-mahogany body is reminiscent of Paul's first pre-factory instruments and offers a warm, woody tone. Gig bag included.

    Best Uses

      PRS's SE line are brilliant guitars for the money. The neck is very playability and comfortable to hold. And for this amount of money most pickups in this range are awful; however, these pickups are very well rounded, very middy, which for me is a great attribute. This guitar is equally at home in the clean spectrum as in the dirt. If you are looking for a great guitar on a budget this is right up your alley.
