PRS SE245 Soapbar - Tobacco Sunburst Reviews

    Sounds and plays as good as it looks!

    I have to admit that the SE245 Soapbar was my first PRS and I loved it so much that I have purchased two other models from the SE line right here at Sweetwater. The Guitar Gallery allows me to choose the one that appeals to me the most. The SE245 is very reminiscent of a Les Paul with the body shape and the wide fat neck. I wanted an affordable guitar with soap bar pickups and was very surprised at the attention to detail and how good it sounds. I was a little worried about the bridge system but I have not had any intonation problems at all. In fact, it is very comfortable for palm-muting. I upgraded the nut to a GraphTech TUSQ and added Dunlop Straploks. I am currently stringing it with GHS David Gilmour Reds. I also replaced the knobs with amber top hats to give it more of a retro vibe. Overall, this guitar ignited my love affair with the PRS SE line and highly recommend them.

    Excellent Value

    First let me say the fit and finish on this guitar is second to none. Almost to the point I'm afraid to touch it. This is my first PRS and to say I'm impressed is a understatement. If u want a beautiful guitar without paying thousands, this is for you. Set up very nice. Thanks Andy for recommending, and to all the guys at Sweetwater. Keep on Rockin!!

    Sweet Soapbars - sustain for days !

    I got this SE245 Soapbar at GearFest, after playing one in the showroom for nearly an hour (through a 65 Amps London Pro). I loved it there, and was hoping that it would sound half as good through my amp at home. Was VERY impressed to see that the amp was not as big an impact as I would have expected - sounds amazing at home as well ! These soapbars are very good and tone-ful, not harsh at all, and have really nice mid-gain grind. Also very low hum level for single-coils, as quiet as most of my humbucker guitars. This body is very comfortable, light and resonant, providing great natural sustain that sings. I also am impressed by the wrap-tail bridge, as it is very accurately intonated and very comfortable for palm-muting. A super buy in a single-cut guitar, very highly recommended !
