I'm another happy user of the SEs. What can I criticise about it! They're possibly the best valued guitar out there. Even Paul loves these SEs himself when he picks one up to play.
FennRx, my SE Santana makes my Fenders, (MIM Fat Strat, American Standard SSS, Telecaster FSR Black Paisley), sound like 7 year old Church choir girls!! I love this guitar, easy to play and "so smooooth" no pun intended!!

sorry to ask this here but i cant find an answer to this:
wich hardcase shoul i buy for the SE245? and not a very expensive one if posible
it would be super cool if i could also fit my santana se on it... this is my maing gig guitar now and its the only one without a case... and i supose the se245 would be also my favorite when i buy it.
Get yourself the PRS hardcase.
Greats deals at www.sweetwater.com
The PRS case fits most SEs with the exception of the SE Tremonti Custom.
Mine fit the PRS case, but you have to use a towel to prop up the neck.
I bought a flight case from SKB just for the Tremonti Custom, and it fits better than the PRS case as it is deeper, and lets the neck hang down lower and the whole guitar is then flush like it should be.
thanks CoreyT.... any cheaper option anybody knows of?
When I was at Guitar Center recently I was played a ton of Epihpones, Deans, Gibsons (barring your $1200+ models of course), ESPs, and Jacksons. However nothing just felt quite as right when i picked up the SE Singlecut. The sound it made when i strummed it and the way it felt in my hands. They're just flat out better guitars.
unfortunately, I had to return my 245- had some unexpected medical bills arrive (stupid high deductible plan). bummer, but before I did I made this quick clip.
My iPad didn't capture the R8 perfectly- it made the guitars sound closer than they really are. However you still can get an idea of how close a $400 SE can be to a Custom Shop Gibson. Pardon the poor playing....I'm just a hobbyist- the PRS stereotype to be exact (ie a professional who has spent lots of cash on gear to belt out bad covers of classic rock songs )

I've had my 245 for about a week and I too cannot put it down. I've been up til like 2am playing with it through headphones mostly but today I was able to crank up the Marshall and really get after it. I am extremely pleasantly surprised by how good the pickups are. They are not noisy whatsoever even on the high gain channel fully cranked on the gain and 9-10 o'clock on the master. I don't need the smart gate with it. I need be gate with my LP and my emg equipped santana. The pups are great and the bridge is hot enough to get some great pinch harmonics effortlessly. It down tunes quite well and was set up perfectly out of box.
This is all with the .9s on it too. I have .10s ready to go on it as soon as I can put it down long enough!
The case I got fits pretty well

My two dream guitars were an r8 and r9 . Corey T posted on the Gibson forum , that he got a prs se cu24 . I ordered one that week and that was it for me. Unfortunately I traded my se cu24 in on my DGT , kinda regret it now . Will be looking at a new se shortly or a cu24 .
Ok sorry off topic lol.
I feel that prs listen to what the customer wants and they are constantly working on improving products . Their customer service is amazing to say the least and the Ptc, that department speaks for itself.

I can't wait to get my hands on SE 245
