(PRESS RELEASE): Paul Reed Smith’s new P245 Semi-Hollow is a vintage-inspired single-cutaway guitar designed for players who prefer shorter scale necks. The 24.5” scale length combined with 22 frets offers classic PRS style in an easy to handle format. This versatile instrument also features the LR Baggs/PRS piezo system, providing players with both electric guitar tones and authentic acoustic tones in one instrument. With two output jacks, the P245 can be plugged directly into an electric or acoustic amplifier or DI into a soundboard. By utilising the separate blend control, the tone of the P245’s 58/15 pickups can also be combined with acoustic sounds through a single output.

The P245 is one of the first models to feature the new 58/15 treble and bass pickups, which were personally designed by Paul Reed Smith. The 58/15s are vintage style pickup with exceptional clarity and focused midrange. These pickups – paired with a shorter 24.5” scale length and 22 frets – give the P245 a truly classic voice that is imminently recordable and gig-ready.“This guitar provides players with the traditional electric guitar tones of yesteryear [similar to our SC245] and authentic acoustic tones in a single instrument. A wonderfully diverse short scale guitar you can rely on night after night,” said Jim Cullen, PRS National Sales Manager.

Additional specifications include a figured maple top, mahogany back, mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, Phase III locking tuners, PRS adjustable stoptail bridge (nickel hardware), 58/15 treble and bass pickups, volume and push/pull tone controls with 3-way toggle pickup selector and LR Baggs/PRS piezo system.  The P245 is available in the following finishes: Antique White, Azul, Black, Black Cherry, Black Gold Burst, Blood Orange, Charcoal Burst, Faded Vintage Yellow, Faded Whale Blue, Gold Top (opaque color), Gray Black, Honey, Jade, Royal Blue, Scarlet Red, Tortoise Shell, Vintage Sunburst, Violet

The P245 is also available in a PRS Artist Package.  The PRS Artist Package program is an exclusive platform for PRS Core guitars that offers upgraded and expanded options to enhance and further personalize your instrument. Artist Package instruments represent the most distinctive pieces available from the PRS Core production line.
