Which would give me a more bluesy, classic rock tone, the Tremonti SE or the 245 SE? Would there be a significant difference in the tones?

i get some really nice blues tones from my se245. i do have #7 pickups in but the 245 pickups are great.
I think both would do it nicely. Either guitar will be a great start on that path, and then it comes down to your amp to provide the important bits that can make or break your tone.
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite
the 245 is meant to be more similar to a vintage lp, it's pups should be more suited to bluesy classic rock type than the tremonte.

the tremonte pups are likely ceramic mags with higher output. similar to a HFS.
