I bought this PRS used a while ago and made some upgrades to the hardware. I installed black pickup rings and a 3-way switch tip. I swaped the pickups to Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates bridge and Alnico Pro II Neck. Holy shit how great this guitar is now!
I was really suprised the quality of this guitar. Great fretwork and finish. Maybe too thick varnish coat, but that's what you get from Korean made guitars i guess. The neck is thick and reminds me of Gibsons 50's neck. Bird inlays look very very nice. Just look at them! All in all i'm very happy of this guitar. It looks so good in Black/Nickel and the quality is superb in this price range.
PRS SE 245 vs Gibson Les Paul Traditional
I made a quick comparison between this PRS and my Gibson les paul Traditional. Nothing scientific. Just to see if there's any big differences in the tones (600€ vs 1300€). My Les Paul has Seth Lover set, so both guitars are in the same ballpark to me.
