And, as mentioned above, PRS has extremely high standards when it comes to quality control, which is why the SE range is a very far cry from a 'cheap guitar'.

The very first SE series guitar was the PRS SE Santana (released in 2001); an economical version of Carlos Santana’s now infamous Paul Reed Smith guitar.

The idea was first born after Carlos and Paul sat down and decided that everyone should be able to afford a PRS.

While the super high-end, outrageously beautiful USA models are definitely things to be admired, Paul recognized that not everybody has thousands of dollars to spend on a guitar and hence set out to create the first PRS SE Santana model.

If you've not yet played an SE Custom 24 then now might be the best time to do so.

It's coil tapped pickups, incredible neck and overall body design make this guitar super comfortable, extremely versatile and well deserving of our number 1 spot.

One stand out feature that must be mentioned is the PRS wrap-around hard tail bridge, which is one of the best, most well-intonated bridges we have ever seen at PMT.

This guitar plays in tune all across the neck and there's no need to adjust it. - Click HERE for more information on the PRS SE 245.

The outcome of this is that the 245 is easier to bend on as the overall string length is reduced, making it easier to tune the guitar up to the correct tension with that little extra slack in the string.

At its price point, with those looks and the immaculate set-up that comes with a PRS, it's very difficult to think of a true competitor towards it.

We can talk on and on about how high PRS set their quality control, how well set-up these instruments are - but you know all this already.

This is simply a stunning guitar and one of the best options out there for metal players at its price point.

Definitely a hot pick for shredders and deserving of our number 2 slot.
