PRS SE 245 - Cherry Sunburst Reviews

    Great guitar value

    I've owned for USA PRS guitars and love them all, so on a whim, I bit the bullet and tried this SE model and I couldn't be more impressed with the quality and attention to detail. The action is great and I played it for an hour right out of the box and couldn't put it down. All of the hardware is quality material and installed well. The flamed maple top is deeply figured and the finish is flawless even at the neck joint. The fingerboard is nicely planed and the fret work is good. The only thing that could be better is the filing of the frets on the edges, but that takes time and time costs money. It doesn't take away from the playability. The pickups are rich and throaty. I could dial in jazz tones and grit with the tone and volume controls. There is no noise in the pots or the 3 way selector; all are quiet and responsive. Unlike similar guitars in this range, the pickups are not overly hot to compensate for poor wood or construction. They are very good and very articulate. I used it through two different Vox tube amps and Fender tube amp; it purred. I'm going to cut the .09's off and go with some heavier gauge DRs, but it can only get better. The gig bag is of good quality as well. You can spend more a get a lot less, but this guitar is a great great value and I'm already shopping for my next one.

    Rockin out da Blues now!

    I am so glad to have taken this "leap of faith" on Sweetwater's Guitar Gallery & have nothing to complain about...my mouth is still open in disbelief at the craftsmanship & pure beauty of my new instrument! I got a good vibe over the phone with Gilbert J. & I felt reassured of the buying/shipping excellence experienced by other satisfied customers as well. Unzipping the extremely well padded Gig bag for the first time & seeing this gem, felt like a 'Christmas of old' for me. Thank you Gilbert & M.V.; (who did the 55 pt. evaluation)...I think I'll go play now!! :)

    I have had my PRS for a month now and I love it. Very sweet and true tones. Couldn't be happier... unless of course I played better!

    I am really pleased with this guitar. Thanks for the deal Sweetwater!
