    Buy this guitar!!!

    This is a great value. I used to own the platinum SE Tremonti that came out in the early 2000s and the first thing I noticed was how thick the body was. The body was as thick as the USA models. Gorgeous finish and the bird inlays make the guitar look amazing. I eventually would like to change the pickups out to PRS Tremonti PUPS, but I'm not in a huge hurry because the stock 245 pups sound great! Also I was very pleased with the necks, I have never been a fan of painted necks, I used to play all Ibanez guitars and really liked the wide and thin Wizard necks. These necks don't feel like your typical painted neck, very slick and smooth, so no complaints at all about the necks on the SE models. Tremolo system holds in tune reasonably well, but I don't use that much. This is a great buy for any style of music. I have two Tremonti customs now (the other is the black grey model) and they're my main "go to" guitars. I plan on buying the Charcoal burst down the road. You will not be disappointed. The SE line has come such a long way

    Awesome Guitar

    First off, I can't say enough about Sweetwater's customer service. I don't think I have ever been treated so well by a company. Secondly, this guitar really rocks. Not only is it a beautiful instrument, it also sounds great. You can really dial in the tone, and it has that distinct PRS sound. The action is really close to my Stratocaster, nice and low, very easy to play. I might even say that it is easier for me to play than my Stratocaster - like butter!

    Great value for the money! Very pleased!

    I bought this guitar not because I love Mark Tremonti (I do respect him as a musician), but because it has the feature set I wanted. Singlecut body with the wide/thin neck profile was what I wanted and PRS doesn't offer in any other guitar I was looking at. This guitar plays and feels great to me at least. The electronics and hardware are very good and I might keep it stock rather than pickup swap for a while.

    The setup was pretty good right from Sweetwater box and I was very impressed with that. I had to slightly file the A string neck slot as it was sitting a little bit too high and make a couple small bridge adjustments and I was off and playing. I could not expect much more from a foreign guitar that costs less than $1000. I love that Sweetwater features the actual pics, serial number and weight of the guitar on the website so you know what you are getting when you order.

    All in all, I am very pleased with the guitar and Sweetwater!

    Best PRS SE

    I own 3 PRS SE's, all from Sweetwater. A 24, a 245 and the Tremonti. All these guitars are quality for the price. The two with bars don't stay in tune that well until you install Schaller lockers. This makes them better but makes the headstock a bit heavy. I also put 10's on it which requires reworking the nut and makes it more stable. The 24 has a good range of sounds vs. the 245/Tremonti which do a really good job of emulating a Les Paul... I mean really good.

    The big difference is that the Tremonti has a rout that allows you to pull up on the bar without hitting the body. PRS should do this with every guitar they equip with a bar! You have a squawking Les Paul sound with a pretty decent whammy bar that goes up as well as down. A great combination.

    I only give 5 stars to something that is perfect & probably costs more money! This is a great value.
