The Paul Reed Smith SC245 is a vintage-inspired Singlecut perfect for more traditional single-cutaway players. The 24.5” scale length offers a loose, laid-back feel, but the guitar maintains a tight low end and snappy attack. With 57/08 pickups (58/15 pickups on later models) delivering vintage humbucking tone and clear, detailed chords, and the electronics layout of two volume and tone controls, and a 3-way toggle switch on the upper bout, the SC245 is instantly comfortable for players who grew up using short-scale guitars.
Additional specifications include a carved maple top, mahogany back, mahogany “Pattern” neck, and fully bound rosewood fretboard. The PRS 2-piece bridge is the anchor of this guitar. Made of aluminum and brass, the bridge has added weight and mass, creating more contact points, which enhances the natural tone of the woods and helps create a more resonant instrument.
With a classic, resonant voice that is eminently recordable and gig ready, the SC245 won’t just take everything you’ve got and keep asking for more, it will do it with unforgettable sound and style.

David's Notes: This is one of my favorite guitars in my entire collection, mainly because it's so unique. Very rarely will any of us will see another guitar like this. The highly figured "splatter pattern" curly maple top was so stunning, that Paul chose this top to be made into a SC245 and be used as the model for the website and print catalog photos.

Not only is this SC245 visually unique, but it is also sonically unique due to the pickups. I have upgraded the pickups to PRS's most vintage sounding pickup set, the 58/15LT (low turn) set. But even better, this particular set of 58/15LTs were owned and played by Chris Robertson, lead guitarist and singer for Black Stone Cherry! This is the most authentically vintage sounding SC245 you'll ever hear and it will turn heads like no other due to the very unique figured maple top.
I'm pricing it to sell so grab it now before someone else does!
