PRS's Classic Rocker!

The PRS SC 245 is a classy instrument inspired by electric guitar pioneer and Paul Reed Smith's mentor Ted McCarty. This beautiful axe gives you the wonderful tonal balance of a maple top and a lightweight mahogany body, plus the relaxed feel of a shorter-scale mahogany neck adorned with a rosewood fretboard and distinctive bird inlays. And a pair of PRS 58/15 humbucking pickups are based on humbuckers made in 1958, delivering PAF-style clarity and punch. For classic tone and classy looks, check out the Paul Reed Smith SC 245.

PRS SC 245 Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • PRS 58/15 pickups - designed by Paul for vintage tone
  • Pattern profile neck feels great and plays smoothly
  • Solid mahogany topped with maple looks and sounds amazing
PRS 58/15 pickups - designed by Paul for vintage tone

This SC 245 boasts a pair of Paul Reed Smith's 58/15 humbucking pickups, designed by Paul Smith himself. They're voiced for "exceptional clarity and focused midrange." Plug into any tube amp and you're primed for an open, airy tone that still holds its own in the mix.pickups provide the SC 245 with vintage output and with great articulation, giving you the kind of clarity you'd expect from a single-coil but with classic humbucker punch and silent performance.

Pattern profile neck feels great and plays smoothly

The SC 245 is fitted with PRS's Pattern neck. Guitarists know that neck shapes are (of course) critical to your playing experience. Perfected after years of prototyping, the Pattern neck is an updated Wide Fat PRS neck style based on designs Paul Reed Smith did in the '70s and '80s for Carlos Santana, Peter Frampton, and Howard Leese of Heart. The SC 245's bound rosewood fingerboard is butter under your fingertips. And with exquisite mother-of-pearl and Paua Heart bird inlays, no one will mistake your axe for anything other than a PRS.

Solid mahogany topped with maple looks and sounds amazing

To give the SC 245 a rich yet balanced sound, PRS began by choosing the tried-and-true combination of mahogany topped with a select maple top. The SC 245's mahogany body gives you natural tonal warmth, which is offset perfectly by the brighter tone of maple. Together, these tonewoods give you an incredibly balanced sound.

PRS SC 245 Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • A quintessential maple-topped mahogany rock guitar with irreproachable PRS quality and style
  • Maple-topped mahogany delivers deep bass resonance with top-end sparkle
  • 58/15 pickups provide the clarity of a single-coil with the low-noise operation and punch of a humbucker
  • Pattern neck profile balances speed and comfort beautifully

PRS SC245

This axe was worth the wait. I don't have the words to describe it, but it just BLEW me away. Everything about it is just absolutely outrageous. Take a back seat Les Paul.
