PRS SE 245 – Whale Blue
Traditional Singlecut Tone from PRS
The PRS SE 245 solidbody electric guitar serves up the classic dual-humbucking, singlecut tones everyone loves in a high-quality, high-value package. The ccomfy single-cutaway maple-topped mahogany body and wide-fat profile neck enable a 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. And the SE 245’s pair of 245 S humbucking pickups gives you all the clarity and punch you need for everything from high-gain rock to clean, smoky jazz.
Wide-fat neck profile feels great and plays smoothly
Neck shapes are crucial to your playing experience and a hallmark of PRS quality. The PRS SE 245 is kitted with their wide-fat neck profile. Perfected after years of iteration , 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, buttery and warm sounding.
Fat tone from a pair of SE 245 humbucking pickups
The PRS SE 245 is kitted with two PRS-designed SE 245 humbucking pickups. Inspired around great vintage humbuckers, these pickups are clear and punchy. You will soon learn the ease these pickups are able to conjure mellow chords one minute and snarl and grownl the next. All the while maintaining attack and clarity the next. And the mahogany body allows these pickups deliver the full low-mid tone that fattens all your single-note playing for singing sustain.
