Hey guys!
I've recently bought a PRS Guitar! My very first electric guitar, yay me!
Anyways. I've bought the PRS SE Standard 22 TB, and I absolutely love it! A couple of days later I then saw there was a PRS SE Standard 245 TB, and it's hardly cost anything more than my recent purchase. My question is, is the 245 ALOT better than the 22?

Absolutely not, the difference will be very small in terms of quality at the very most, most likely non existent and certainly for your first guitar you probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Either are very nice for a first electric.

The difference is mostly in the specs, with different pickups and scale lengths. The 22 also has better upper fret access which is generally better. I don't really know a great deal about the SE pickups but they are all generally ok to good. I've played a couple of the Tremonti signatures (I think?) and they sounded nice, but I don't know what pickups they are lol.

You would be better off to save the money to upgrade pickups like Seymour Duncan later on.

Buying online is always a bit of a gamble in terms of the guitar you get, and since you love the 22 I definitely suggest to keep it.

The PRS singlecut and custom models have the same lower cutaway, so fret access is equal on them.

The only big difference is the 1/2" in scale length and pickups

Just for general information, the PRS Standard Series are a newly introduced budget line, made in Indonesia.

Until we have side-by-side comparison with the Korean, don't assume they're spec'ed exactly the same as the models used to be.

Actually the SE Standard line was around until 5-7 yrs ago, PRS is bringing them back is all

I haven't heard anything about the SE being made anywhere but Korea

No, but the less expensive Standard range they introduced just recently are made in Indonesia.

^ haven't seen that.
I have a G&L Tribute that is made in Indo, and it is a very nice guitar so it may not be a bad thing

But on the PRS site (USA) it doesn't list the SE standard line

The SE Standard line is only marketed in Europe at the moment. No word from PRS if the SE Standard line will be coming stateside.
