Is PRS ever going to offer an S2 245?

    I know they offer the S2 Singlecut. I have one of those but I like the chunkier neck of the SE 245.
    An S2 model "59/19" would be nice. An S2 245 with a '59 style neck would be awesome. Oh, and no pickguard models and move that bridge pickup closer to the bridge for a more authentic '59 sound.

    A secondhand core 245 or older stripped 58 might get you there now?

    Since 245 was dropped from the core range, I’d be surprised to see an s2. Maybe s2 594?

    An S2 594? That would be cool. Does the 594 have a chunky neck like the 245?

    Not saying it’s impossible, but maybe not extremely likely? The S2 line achieves its affordability by sharing lots of common parts and processes, which includes making 25” scale fretboards and pattern regular necks.

    Don’t get me wrong, I would be one of the first in line, and it could happen, but I wouldn’t hold my breath either.

    Yes, 594 neck is on the bigger side, like the 245 is.
    Note: I'm comparing 2 core guitars - I have never played an SE 245 and have no idea if they have different necks
