    2) Cody Kilby Private Stock
    3) Martin Simpson Private Stock
    4) Tonare Grand
    5) Tony McManus Private Stock
    6) PRS SE Angelus

    Which have you played? Which do you have? Which one do you want?

    Have not played any, but I would not mind picking up the SE one with the electronics package in it.
    Trying to talk my lead here at work to visit the music shop I deal with to check one out, as he wants a guitar.

    We're doing a McManus with Koa back and sides right now. It looks fantastic

    I've played the Angeles Cutaway a bit, Angeles SE and Jaime's PS Tonare Grand. I want a Tonare, not sure what woods I'd get. I'd have to play them side by side.

    edit: I own none.

    I own an Angelus Private Stock from 2010, and the Angelus SE which was the 91st one produced (without electronics). The SE is much brighter, and the PS has a very rich, deep tone....also a bit more difficult to play than the SE.

    I've only played the Tonare Grand so I'd say that one.

    Not played any but I'd love the SE Angelus. That guitar sounds great in pretty much every demo I've heard.

    And if money was no object? Tony McManus PS!

    I have played Tony McManus Private Stock in front of Tony McManus, talk about intimidating!

    I have an SE Angelus Custom. LOVE it...

    I want a Maryland Made Angelus Cutaway...

    I have a Tonare and it is brilliant, as was the one I played but didn't buy.
    I played an SE Angelus briefly and think it is decent.
    I have been lusting after a Maryland Angelus for a while and am likely to succumb at some point - cocobolo or braz.

    It's not a PS...

    It's a "One Off" Mahogany Concept Guitar...

    I also played McManus's Angelus (before he had the sig model...)

    And I WILL own an AP Angelus w/BRW back and sides...

    And it is an exquisite instrument...extremely well balanced tonally...I enjoyed playing it tremendously! Thank you Mark for the opportunity!

    It is the only PRS acoustic I have played.

    Not sure which I have GAS for...definitely Mark's....the two acoustics Brent posted today got me salivating as well!

    Have played the Martin Simpson and Tony McManus models. Would love to say my acoustic playing was a) plentiful enough and b) of high enough quality to justify buying the McManus - love the ebony board.

    But in the PRS line, I only have the SE Custom.
