I'm thinking about buying one of the SE 245 for a backup guitar. Just wanting to hear some pros and cons

I just picked up a 245 last week after having a regular SE Singlecut for about a year. I love the singelcut, but the 245 is a bit more Les Paul-ish in that is has a noticeable fatter (warmer) tone and a bit better sustain. The clean tone (especially on the neck pup) is unbelievable. Add some gain and this guitar just sings...

Someday I'll get an American-made PRS, but until then, I couldn't be happier with my 245... If you're looking for one as a backup, don't even hesitate...
