    PRS Cu22 vs Cu24 vs SC245?

    I'm looking for a guitar that does a little bit of everything really well, with an emphasis on versatility.

    I mostly play mostly sludge/stoner metal/rock. Add in a touch of thrash, grunge and sprinkle with a bit of 70s rock/metal. Primarily a Les Paul through Dual Rectifier. I don't use crazy high gain and the LP has PAFs. I tend to use my volume/tone controls a lot to give me a full spectrum of sounds between clean and scream.

    What I don't want is something that's similar to a Les Paul. I already have that angle covered. I want something different, preferably more modern sounding, but not like an 80s Super Strat kind of deal. Still thick, but clearer and hotter. Articulate with molten levels of gain and a tighter bottom end when riffing, yet still sounds good backed off.

    So, if you were in my shoes and looking at PRS which way would you go and why?

    Skip the SC245 in that case. Basically a Les Paul Reed Smith.

    If you need 24-frets, then get the Cu24 if you want that extra shreddiness.

    I have a Singlecut Trem and it's a great guitar. Thinner than a Les Paul so has more cut to it and the trem and pickups work well for different tones compared to the LP.

    The Custom 24 is about as far away from the LP as you're going to get, out of those 3.
