Paul Reed Smith Guitars brings huge single coil tones back into their SE lineup for 2013 with the SE 245 Soapbar. This guitar provides a quality alternative to players seeking a traditional single-cutaway, single-coil instrument. Adaptable to nearly any musical style, PRS SE Soapbar pickups provide additional midrange growl and tight bass response not normally associated with traditional single coils. The combination of these “hot” pickups with a traditional electronics layout of a three-way toggle switch on the upper bout and individual volume and tone controls for each pickup provide versatility with exceptional sonic control.
