The PRS Angelus Cutaway is now available through our Artist Package program. Through this platform, you can now own an Angelus with your choice of Tasmanian blackwood back and sides, figured Koa back and sides, or Brazilian rosewood back and sides (in applicable markets*). With responsive and clear highs, crisply defined lows and a sweet midrange, the PRS Angelus Cutaway boasts a remarkable voice and lasting sustain. The choice of Koa or Brazilian rosewood back and sides gives these award-winning acoustics an even more distinctive voice that can be enjoyed acoustically or with our customized pickup system.
The PRS Acoustic pickup system is a proprietary, full band width Piezo pick up that is combined with a proprietary 18 volt custom-voiced preamp.
The PRS Artist Package program is an exclusive platform for PRS Core electric guitars, amplifiers, and acoustics that offers expanded options and enhancements on select models. Simply choose your model and pick from the available upgrades to create the most distinctive instruments and amplifiers available from the PRS Core production line.

*Instruments containing Brazilian Rosewood that are marked with “USA Only” or “Custom Built for the USA” on the back of the headstock are for the purpose of sale ONLY in the U.S. When a guitar is shipped overseas from the U.S., a re-export permit issued by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service certifying that the Brazilian Rosewood components are from a lawful source is required. In addition, some countries require a separate permit to import a guitar with Brazilian Rosewood components. Finally, a number of countries, including the countries making up the European Union, have barred the importation of Brazilian Rosewood altogether, except under certain very narrow circumstances.
United States law does not require supporting documentation to be shipped with a guitar containing Brazilian Rosewood components sold in the United States. Therefore while the wood used on the above mentioned instruments is qualified for sale in the U.S., the instrument cannot be exported from the U.S., nor can certification be obtained for the exportation of the instrument. Only Brazilian Rosewood that was harvested before June of 1992 (when the wood was listed as a protected species under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES)) and is accompanied by a CITES export permit from Brazil can be shipped in foreign commerce. (In normal circumstances, the CITES document does not travel with the specific guitar to the end customer). The Brazilian Rosewood used by PRS Guitars is obtained in compliance with these conditions.
