The PRS SE 245 2017 Limited Run Electric Guitar in Spalted Maple combines the solid playability of their awesome single-cutaway solidbody model with premium tonewoods at an affordable price. Whether you're looking for a resilient touring guitar, a versatile studio companion, or simply something gorgeous to add to your arsenal, then this is the model for you.
Smooth body design
The team at PRS have garnered a worthy reputation for building guitars of peerless beauty and elegance, which has seen them become the brand of choice for many professionals across many musical genres. Their SE models may be more affordable than their more expensive USA siblings, but they still benefit from the same innovative construction methods and heavenly finishing touches. This limited edition 2017 model adds a little extra into the mix.
The body is built using a solid piece of mahogany, which establishes a warm tonal foundation for an enviable richness. The spalted maple top isn't just for show, it provides a tight upper frequency response that ensures a well-rounded tonal palette. The single-cutaway profile affords easier upper fret access, whilst the gently bevelled edges allow a comfortable resting position for the picking arm.
Solid mahogany neck
Fitted to the body is a sturdy and responsive mahogany neck, which offers a wide-fat profile that is ideal for planting your fingers on for stable and steady chord playing, without feeling cumbersome or unwieldy. Paired with the neck is generous rosewood fingerboard, which is home 22-frets that feature the obligatory PRS "bird" position inlays to aid in your fretboard navigation in style. As noted, the single cutaway body profile guarantees easier upper fret access, giving your fingers total freedom to roam.
The PRS SE 245 2017 Limited Edition model is equipped with a pair of PRS Designed SE 245 humbuckers - fitted in the neck and bridge positions. Control comes in the form of independent volume and tone controls for each pickup, as well as a 3-way toggle switch for selecting either pickup independently or both simultaneously. Whatever genre of music you play, the SE 245 pickups are delightfully versatile, offering up a remarkable tonal arsenal from which you can draw. Simply plug in to your amp of choice, and let her rip!
The PRS SE 245 2017 Limited Run Electric Guitar comes fitted with a PRS Designed Stoptail, which works dutifully with the bridge to optimise intonation and sustain throughout the most energetic of performances. The headstock is home to PRS Designed tuners that maintain string tension and tuning stability precisely.
