    PRS SinglecutPublished on 04/15/08 at 15:00
    I have been playing guitar for 13 years. I play blues rock, alternative, and worship music. My major influences range from Buddy Guy, and SRV, to TOOL. I am beginning to get into jazz too.

    I found two of these for sale at Mammoth Music here in Anchorage, Alaska. I chose the wrap around tobacco burst with the adjustable tailpiece, essential since I play with 11s and these come set up for 9s. I was actually in the market for a Les Paul again. I just couldn't find one for less than 3,800.00 that sounded good in all pickup positions and all the way up the neck.

I chose the wrap around tobacco burst with the adjustable tailpiece, essential since I play with 11s and these come set up for 9s. I was actually in the market for a Les Paul again. I just couldn't find one for less than 3,800.00 that sounded good in all pickup positions and all the way up the neck. So I entered the PRS room and started messing around with a Santana 3 through a Mesa Boogie Lone Star Special This guitar was pretty sweet and I almost bought it untill I plugged in the Singlecut. WOW! Tone to die for everywhere. It listed for 3,480.00 I walked out with it for 2,449.00.

    The incredible quality. This guitar oozes class. The woods are stunning and it looks like it was dipped in glass. Then there is this butter smooth tone that was more than what my ears were looking for. I would not recommend these pickups to a shredder buy the Tremonti if that's your thing. These pickups are full articulate and smooth but not at all muddy. I play through a Mesa Boogie Heartbreaker combo and practice through an Epiphone Valve Jr. Both of these amps have inherently dark personalities but this guitar still cuts through them.

    The fact that it comes set up with 9s. Does anybody actually play with strings that light? Most Gibson's I've bought at least came with 10s. PRS's standards are so tight that the nut needs to be filed for heavier strings otherwise they pinch.

    As I stated before this guitar is built on a whole different level from any standard production guitar available today only Custom Shops and the likes of Warrior and Tom Anderson are at this level and they cost a small fortune.

    If you have the cashola you will not regret buying one of these. But before you spring for one on ebay play one yourself 'cause they have a unique voice and about the heftiest neck PRS makes.

    I found this guitar on E-bay, at
    the store: Musicland.
    I paid $230.
    I liked the specs.

    The pickups are loud and aggressive.
    The green flame finish is top notch.
    The action is perfect.


    -

    Excellent overall construction.

    If you didn't know you were playing a copy, you'd
    swear that this was a genuine Paul.
    I rate this as one of my best guitar purchases.
    Before you put a mortgage on the house to buy a Gibson, pick up one of these!

    Access in acute is also typical Les Paul but easier thanks all the same position over the back of the "Cut" and especially its hollow shape typical of the PRS.
    It PSE weight but this is when even more lightweight than a Gibson Les Paul.
    A blank, arson trs well, it is enjoyable to play, sustain trs is impressive, even suprieur Gibson ...

    SOUNDS

    I play mostly mtal cot and what she is doing the same when well! Obviously we are far from sharp and devilish precision of EMG, but we get a big fat and heavy sound really good for all as heavy rhythms and solo parts are also wonderful! We can not say that it is made for the mtal or not ... it is just diffrent and you really have to test to see if a suitable! example: Trs good for playing Gojira but not at all for the Chimeara! See for yourself then!

    I tried it on a Marshall MG 100 DFX and we approach many of the legendary duo Gibson / Marshall sound in, but with many more opportunities on both modern and clear sound ... All styles are affordable, Folk, Jazz, Blues, Funk, Rock, Hard Rock, Heavy-Mtal, Etc..

    We therefore obtain trs sounds convincing without achieving the Fender clean sound and violence of ESP ... Personally I loved it and it must make a killing on a Mesa Rectifier (who also knows about "big" and "heavy"), but others might not like, so test it!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used an hour in a box at my usual dealer, I have the sounds in AIM gnral and I could have spent another hour searching over its potential impossible to get bored ... The handle me a little because I'm used to more stratodes sleeves and fast, but so far nothing is impossible if one is good (look for Mark Tremonti Alter Bridge, it can tr s good to rev quickly over him ...).
    I tried other Les Paul type guitar in the genre and is the most convincing of its versatility, it's as if Gibson had Moderne SA Les Paul (I'm tempted to say dpoussir but not provocative lol).
    The report qualitprix is ​​pretty good given the quality of manufacturing and musical instrument, but it is true that it's pretty prohibitive ...
    If I had to buy a Les Paul guitar typ it would be Eclipse or ESP, but in its price range it was competing with good arguments (and her sis Custom 513 ...), and I head rather ... but the rest of the bomb guitar.

  • Just, awesome

    PRS SinglecutPublished on 08/31/11 at 11:00
    The PRS SC245 is basically PRS' homage to the great Gibson Les Paul, but made to have the unique vibe of the PRS guitars. These were recently reintroduced a few years ago after Gibson (unsuccessfully) sued them to stop producing it. However, now it's back and better than ever. They're made at the PRS USA factory in Maryland as always.

    This particular guitar features all mahogany construction with a figured maple top (it's also available in solid colours like gold) a rosewood fretboard with 22 frets, the option of moon or bird inlays, locking tuners, a PRS designed wraparound bridge/tailpiece, and a pair of PRS SC245 humbuckers. It also offers a 24.75 scale length to go that extra mile.......

It also offers a 24.75 scale length to go that extra mile. It's loaded with the same control layout as an LP (two volume, two tone, and a 3 way selector switch). Very cool.





    UTILIZATION

    The design of this guitar is fairly ergonomic considering that it's a mahogany guitar built in the general Gibson tradition. The weight is reasonably light, and the guitar sits well on the body. The neck heel is sculpted differently than a Gibson Les Paul and this allows for greater upper fret access in my opinion. The singlecut shape isn't the greatest guitar for flying on, but the PRS doesn't make things difficult by any means - it's quite easy to play on.

    Getting a good tone out of this guitar is pretty easy. PRS guitars have always been known for their wonderfully pure tones, and this one is no exception. They're well crafted and have a great unplugged sound, and the pickups are a great match for the guitar, providing a great range of tones from clean to high octane.

    SOUNDS

    I've tried this guitar through various different amplifiers and have been fairly impressed each time. The PRS pickups in this guitar are very nice and articulate, and it definitely sounds wonderful for a whole host of styles. The clean sounds have a nice low end to them that works very well for jazz/blues styles. The bridge pickup has enough bite to approximate country tones, and using the center position offers a nice spanky funk tone as well.

    The distorted side of things are fun too. This guitar has a wonderful complex tone with a lot of killer harmonics lurking inside. Heavy rhythms are just awesome with this guitar, and it sings for fusiony lead work too. Though the pickups have a vintage tint to them, they work well for high gain applications and sound good in a variety of contexts.

    OVERALL OPINION

    All in all I think the PRS SC245 is a great guitar that is an excellent alternative to the Gibson Les Paul. The craftsmanship is excellent, the feel is there, and the tones are wonderful. They were about $2,000 new when they were made (PRS recently discontinued them) but if you look to a dealer or eBay you can find a nice one for a reasonable price no doubt. Definitely give one a whirl!

  • A Modern Masterpiece!!

    UTILIZATION

    They call it the modern Les Paul, and with a reason.
    From down to earth blues, to modern drop tuning Heavy Rock, this guitar can handle a lot of genres.

    The frets are easy accesible, and the neck is really comfortable, you can see and feel that this guitar was done by precise and great craftmanship, it screams “quality” from the first time you play it!

    The stock pickups are great, more on the vintage side, I’m planning to replace them with the Bareknuckle pickups, the Aftermath on the Bridge and the Cold Sweat on the Neck (I've already tried different BK PU in my Gibson SG, and I know that their quality is top notch).

    I found that the Volume and Tone controls are really responsive and more controlled than my Gibson SG Standard.

    SOUNDS

    I play different genres, mainly on the heavy side of Alternative/Progressive Rock.
    Bands that I like and I’m inspired by are Alter Bridge, Tool, A Perfect Circle, Massive Attack, Meshuggah and Alice in Chains.
    I have buyed this guitar used, in great conditions and for a great price, from a store in U.S., because these guitar here in Europe are really expensive.

    I've used it in a store, and at reaharsals with a Peavey 5150 with an Harley Benton 2x12 cab, and in a store with a Diezel Einstein (which I'm planning to buy soon) and a Mesa 2x12 cab.

    In both the circumstances the sounds are great, even with the stock pickups I was able to have amazing results in a few minutes.

    From Jazzy like clean tones, to high gain distortions, this guitar let me hear myself perfectly in the mix (I play in 2 different bands, both with another guitarist).

    OVERALL OPINION

    For the price I payed this guitar, I cannot be more happy. I've also tried modern Gibson Guitars, but at that price for me they were impossible to buy. I knew that the Paul Reed Smith guitars were at the same, if not higher, standards of the Gibson ones.

    If you play modern genres, my opinion is to update the pickups to the Bareknuckle, and you will have a guitar that will last you a lifetime.

  • The Modern Les Paul!

    UTILIZATION

    Playing the guitar is a breeze. For me, PRS guitars play amazingly, obviously assuming it is setup properly. The neck and body are FAT, and the guitar is heavy, but this does not make the guitar any harder to play in my case, though a shredder used to Ibanez or EBMM ergonomics may feel otherwise. The stoptail, though not fully adjustable, intonates surprisingly well assuming you use reasonable gauge strings and close to standard tunings (I’ve had no trouble even as low as Drop C with 11-52, again assuming a proper setup). Those tuning lower, and seeking better control of the intonation can seek the fullyadjustable model of the stoptail. Though non-locking, the vintage tuners keep the guitar in tune perfectly- no need to swap them IMO.

    SOUNDS

    The PRS Singlecut, though Les Paul like in shape, offers a very different sound. The overall tone is sharper and more modern, though still very big sounding, thanks to the huge slab of mahogany. The #7 pickups offer a large range of versatility, handling cleans all the way to higher gain applications no problem. Though they don’t quite excel at anything, they allow the guitar to handle a large array of tones quite well- I may even dub them PRS’s most versatile pickup. Those desiring even higher gain applications, I recommend swapping the bridge pickup to a PRS Tremonti, though don’t say I didn’t warn you!

    OVERALL OPINION

    The PRS Singlecut quickly became, and still is to this day, my favorite guitar. It plays almost effortlessly, and never lets me down in the tone department. The base sound of the guitar is simply described as BIG. Depending on the pickups, it quickly can morph between a smooth and pleasant sounding fiddle, to a screaming axe.

  • a good guitar very expensive!

    PRS SinglecutPublished on 08/30/10 at 02:06 (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    manufactured in the U.S., the Singlecut natural color coded, with birds on the key has 22 frets, fixed bridge, 2 humbucking pickups with studs uncovered, 2 volume, 2 tone and a 3-position selector.
    the handle is thick (less than a les paul but 2 to 3 times more than a parker fly!).

    UTILIZATION

    For me, the handle is too thick at first as well as the body requires you to know that I play on parker fly deluxe for about 2 months and I have not found a guitar that has an ergonomic and also worked fine. .. so you will understand that for me, this guitar is too thick from the viewpoint of the neck, body, and its pitch is too short because I play mostly on 24 squares!

    but getting back to our guitar, I felt used after about 1 quarter of an hour of play above and I think the key is very rounded strato type (and I like that kind of touch!); which means that we can play precisely along the entire length of the neck (except in the last frets, it takes a bit of time with the guitar, but in the end, there will be a winner!)
    frankly, ergonomics issue, I had the first touch, the feeling of playing on a tree trunk!
    and yes, as I explained above, I have a parker, and ergonomics issue, no guitar does it comes close!
    but after some playing time, I start to get used to, but it takes time to play on this kind of instrument!
    access to the treble is not easy, and the body of the instrument comes to meet the joystick to the 15th fret and play for quick shots to Steve Vai or Paul Gilbert, it will take time to get used to this instrument!
    the sound is all about this guitar!
    awesome and super nice, a very beautiful grain of jazz and blues neck pickup, it's immediately recognizable and authentic!
    later, in middle position is more balanced in terms of frequency ...
    acute at the micro, I added a good light saturation and then I get to play "no remorse" with just the grain, this definition, it takes!
    and when I say here is that I tried to get guitars that sound, I searched for years!
    then his question is, 10 out of 10!
    but too large thickness of the shaft, the pitch and feel that I find perfectible lowers the rating to 8!

    SOUNDS

    it is suitable for these types of music, blues, jazz, hard rock arpeggios and, after that we can make adjustments with the nuances of tone and the amp ...
    I played on a tube amp and all settings at noon, so I can say it sounds really good and even better than good compared to my parker!
    I like all sounds!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I tried it last Saturday and I've tested the guitar (but not all models need to, I still have time to live and I will go to try them!)
    I love the most; benchmarks birds head natural gloss mahogany, tiger maple table the natural sound of the pickups, the key.
    I like the least, the price, the handle 22 boxes too heavy for me, the thickness of the body, access to acute again.
    value for money, for me, questionable; one side was a beautiful guitar that I like the aesthetic point of view and sound and the other was a guitar with an expensive and ergonomics I do not like and a price more than questionable, and I put a 8 because of these points and the fact that it must be noted as this, but the best is going to try in store! !
    but it remains in my mind as a profound doubt about the tariff;
    Is that the guitar is worth € 3,000 requested ?.... I think not, but I'll leave to judge for yourself!
