Instrument Categories: , , ,

Built from 2007 to 2009 and again from 2013 to 2016, the PRS SC 245 is a single cut in the classic combination of Maple on Mahogany, and with a relatively short 24.5 inch scale length.

Here we’re looking at a PRS SC 245 built during 2008 at the PRS shop in Stevensville, Maryland. It’s in very good condition, with only slight wear; the nickel plated metal parts are developing a natural patina. This example is built using a bookmatched, carved Flame Maple top on a contoured Mahogany back and a Mahogany neck bearing an unbound Indian Rosewood fingerboard with Bird inlays. The neck joint is nicely contoured for comfort.

For hardware, this all original 2008 PRS SC 245 has Kluson Deluxe style non-locking tuners, and a PRS Stop tail Bridge at the body. A pair of PRS 57/08 pickups route through a pickup selector and individual volume and tone controls.

This guitar plays well and with the half inch shorter scale than most PRS models, has a slightly lo0ser or slinkier feel. 

The original PRS hard shell case is included.

Here is what the builder has to say about the PRS SC 245:

“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 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 rosewood fretboard.(…)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.”
