Since 2001, the SE lineup of guitars from Paul Reed Smith has proven to guitar players that their excellent tone and playability goes a very long way, especially at its amazing price point. The mahogany body and wide-fat neck offer a more vintage vibe opposed to the SE Custom models. The SE 245 delivers warm tones and comfortable playability while a pair of dual humbucking, vintage-inspired pickups give off dirty tones.

Classic Tones and Body Shape
The single-cutaway mahogany body gives off a full and thick tone with endless amounts of sustain. A maple top with a gorgeous flame maple veneer is striking and will catch the eye of any guitar lover! The SE 245 is very comfortable to play whether you're going to be in the studio with it for hours at a time or you're taking it to the stage for a live performance.

Smooth Playing Vintage Neck
The SE 245's neck has a real vintage feel to it with its wide-fat profile that players who enjoy thicker necks will love. A mahogany neck with a 22-fret, rosewood fingerboard sports a shorterr 24.5" scale length, which makes bending a little bit easier. PRS' wide fat neck profile is based on designs Paul Reed Smith had made in the '70s and '80s for Carlos Santana and Peter Frampton.

Dirty Humbuckers with Classic Tones
Fitted with dual humbucking 245 "S" pickups, the SE 245 has great midrange tones with plenty of punch and warmth, yet the sound is not muddy. These versatile pickups are great for any genre whether you are playing hard rock riffs or clean jazz chords. Two volume and two tone knobs along with a 3-way selector switch make up the easy-to-use controls for this stylish guitar.
