    So I've been looking at getting a semi hollow for awhile. Assumed I'd go down the Gibson or Thinline Tele route, but then stumbled across various PRS models which looked great.

    I very nearly pulled the trigger on a Reclaimed C22 when they were announced a while backor S2 C24 SH , but held off.

    Then saw this beauty in Guitar Village, and after a few hours playing it (I'm not used to a shorter scale LP style guitar - so took me awhile to get my hands in sync) I had a stunning new arrival in my guitar family.

    Introducing the PRS P245 Semi Hollow in Faded Whale Blue.
    The combo of the semi hollow and the piezo gives this guitar some serious clarity, and with it being coil tapped as well incredibly versatile. I'll be using this guitar mostly for ambient stuff or some jazz - or gigs where I need both an acoustic and electric.

    But enough talking, here are the pics!!


    And lastly a family shot :)



    There are a few more (better quality pics from the guitar village website https://guitarvillage.co.uk/products/prs-p245-semi-hollow-faded-whale-blue)

    Thanks, was the best finished one I could find for me, there were others scattered about the web which were nice (including a 10 top going for quite cheap in the grand scheme of things), but none of them did it for me as much as this one...although would love to have a 10 top one day (as well as other PRS's now)

    Thanks man. Despite these pics being better than my usual ones, doesn't do it (or the fam) justice.

    But I've been lucky the last year to seriously upgrade a lot of my stuff (gained like 4 guitars, my Mesa Lonestar special and my board) so can't complain:hbang:

    You have both a gorgeous Regius 7 and this stunning PRS single cut.

    I think I hate you a little
