  • NGD: PRS SE 245 (non-Bernie Marsden ;))

    Yeah, so I was really GASsing for the Bernie model, and coulda had one for about $450 during the triple-stack, but when PK pointed out a couple of used 245s at MF, this "like new" one triple-stacked to the tune of $381 :

    The "Mazi Bee" memorial shot:



    I had a PRS SE Custom 24 for awhile - the 25th anniversary model that was one of the first SEs with the birds. They looked, however, REALLY cheap - just plain white, and no "pearloid" look. Thankfully, the newer SEs have seemed to correct that:



    Cool headstock inlay as well, although it's hard to see in the pic:



    Now, here is my only issue; it's VERY minor, but maybe the reason why it was returned: if you look at the lower half of the body, there seems to be an issue with how the veneer was finished - almost like there are two dark "boxes" side-by-side. Geddy inspected it and seemed to be a bit alarmed, but it doesn't bother me :








    Overall, I LOVE this thing - it is a big improvement over the "regular" SE Singlecuts (although they are still great as well) - thicker body, and I believe newer and improved pickups. Pickups sound very good and well-balanced. The wide-fat neck carve is glorious. And don't anyone give me that "PRS sounds sterile" bull**************** - it will easily hang with a LP, especially when cranked through a Marshall-y amp

              I daresay that it feels, plays, and sounds as good (or BETTER ) than any MIA guitars that cost 10x as much!!!

                          is there much of a difference other than the knobs and neck binding?

                            Nice! I've liked the SEs (of whatever flavor) I've played. And that one is a fine-looking example.

                              HNGD! The new SEs are great. Do you find it heavy at all? The one I tried out felt crazy heavy to me but my Esquire weighs nothing so it may just be me
