The PRS 2018 SE 245 Electric Guitar in Whale Blue is a modern day take on a classic for those who delight in playing a shorter-scale (than your average PRS guitar), single-cutaway slice of awesome. Taking on a familiar body profile that has been given the PRS treatment, the 245 is a solid workhorse of a guitar that is a touring musicians dreams - affordable, reliable, and versatile.
Beautiful yet durable construction
The PRS 2018 SE 245 Electric Guitar is crafted using a thick mahogany back, which establishes the cool mid-range tonal foundation infused with smooth warmth. From blues to rock, the 245 has that fundamental energy that all guitarists crave. Paired with the mahogany is a sleek maple top, which rounds out the tone with a high-end clarity that guarantees a well-round, full-bodied output that is the stuff of dreams. Sealing the deal visually is an eye-catching flame maple veneer.
The slender body depth partners beautifully with the soft contours to create a figure-hugging feel during performances. Though the guitar feels solid, it benefits from a lightweight manoeuvrability that takes the effort out of laying down smooth licks.
Generous wide-fat neck
Fitted to the body is a solid mahogany neck, which is shaped to a classic wide-fat profile that feels substantial yet manageable in the hand. Sailing through chords, arpeggios, legato, or tapping, your fingers are afforded ample space to roam freely, without overstretching unnecessarily. Thanks to the perfectly executed radius, string bends can be performed without unwanted choking for notes that ring out for days. Married to the neck is a delightful 22-fret fingerboard, which is adorned with bird position inlays to guide your way in style.
Rich humbucker power
The 2018 SE 245 comes with SE 245 treble and bass humbuckers in the neck and bridge position respectively. These precise pickups capture a massive frequency spread and are just as powerful when it comes to huge lead tone as they are at fat and chunky rhythm timbres. Of course, you can shape the tone to your exact liking utilising the volume and tone controls for each pickup as well as the 3-way position selector.
The PRS 2018 SE 245 in whale blue is equipped with gig-ready hardware that includes the PRS designed bridge and stoptail, which optimise intonation and sustain for immaculate stability. The PRS-designed tuning machines uphold integrity dutifully throughout the most energetic of performances. The nickel hardware complements the elegant whale blue finish in style.
