A PRS Singlecut with Serious Punch!

Take to the stage with the ready-to-rock PRS SE Standard 245 solidbody electric guitar. The comfortable single-cut mahogany body and wide-fat neck deliver great playability and warm, detailed tones. The shorter 24.5" scale length of the Standard 245 makes bending easier and gives your strings a slinkier feel. A pair of humbucking pickups gives you all the firepower you need for everything from a rock gig to a wedding band. The PRS SE Standard 245 is an affordable tone machine that's ready for any gig!

PRS SE Standard 245 Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Wide-fat neck profile feels great and plays smoothly
  • Fat tone from a pair of humbucking pickups
  • PRS quality in every guitar
Wide-fat neck profile feels great and plays smoothly

The PRS SE Standard 245 is fitted with PRS's wide-fat neck profile. A hallmark of PRS quality, neck shapes are, of course, critical to your playing experience. Perfected after years of prototyping, 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 Standard 245's rosewood fingerboard is butter under your fingertips, and with the iconic bird inlays, no one will mistake your axe for anything other than a PRS.

Fat tone from a pair of humbucking pickups

The PRS SE Standard 245 is fitted with two PRS Designed 245 humbucking pickups. Check it out - you've got that chunky neck in your left hand, and you're voicing mellow chords one minute and tearing up the fingerboard with an insane fusion solo the next. You need versatile pickups to do your playing justice. You got 'em. Take it from the Sweetwater crew - the PRS SE Standard 245 has the tones to take your music wherever it wants to go.

PRS quality in every guitar

All of Paul Reed Smith guitars are designed for top-notch performance right out of the case, and the SE Standard 22 is no exception.

PRS Standard 245

Right out of the box this guitar tuned up and held the tuning. Wasn't sure at first for the wide fat neck but after a few licks it fit well on my small fat fingers. I play through a VOX all tube amp from sweetwater and this guitar had all the qualities I was looking for. It has that vintage sound I love. Sounds like an Gibson SG with that raw crunch on the distortion side with a clean smooth sound your ears will love. Plays beautifully and PRS has done it again with a high quality guitar and at a price point I can live with. Lakhota
