Launched in 2001, the Paul Reed Smith SE Series has provided guitar players around the world with excellent tone, playability, and fun at an incredibly affordable price point. The comfortable single-cut mahogany body and wide-fat neck deliver great playability and warm, detailed tones. A pair of vintage-inspired humbucking pickups gives you all the gritty tones you'll need to explore plenty of different sounds.

Classic Tones and Body Shape
With its all mahogany body, the SE 245 Standard resembles Paul Reed Smith's first, pre-factory guitars. The tone from mahogany is very thick and full and will give the guitar a ton of sweet sustain. Guitarists who are on tour or recording in the stuido will love the SE 245 Standard due to its comfort and easy playability.

Smooth Playing Vintage Neck
The PRS SE 245 Standard is fitted with PRS's wide-fat neck profile. The shorter 24.5" scale length of the SE 245 Standard makes bending notes easier and gives your strings a slinkier feel. The wide fat neck is based on designs Paul Reed Smith did in the '70s and '80s for guitar legends Carlos Santana and Peter Frampton. The 22-fret rosewood fingerboard plays like a dream and sports the iconic bird inlays.

Vintage Vibe Humbucking pickups
The PRS SE 245 Standard is fitted with dual humbucking 245 "S" pickups. These versatile pickups have a real dirty, vintage feel to them with plenty of mids. These pickups are also very punchy and not muddy at all. Chords on both pickups sound full and broad and work well for rhythm playing and lead playing. Both pickups sound great on clean as well and are very chimey. The control layout features 2 volume, 2 tone knobs with a 3-way selector switch.
