    SE Angelus, what is it comparable to?

    I have been trying to find one of these to play but have had no luck. I did have the opportunity to play the high end models (oh sweet Jesus they sound amazing). So I was wondering how the SE's stack up and what are they comparable to? Any information is greatly appreciated!

    I've only played the Angelus Custom, and find it easily better than the Taylor 2 series and Martin X-Series. (similar prices from where i am from) Note this is my opinion. If I didn't own a really nice Martin I would definitely give this a look.

    I played a cutaway a week ago. I'd easily put it up against a 400 series Taylor in tone and playability. It was much more clear and articulate than I expected (and remembered from a roadshow PRSh and crew did out here last year). I really think it plays so far out of it's price get that you have to look at much more expensive guitars to find a level comparison.

    I didn't plug it in, so. I cannot comment on the electronics.

    Good luck!

    I've got the SE Custom and agree with Egads. Best bang for the buck around - no contest! Electronics are fine also!
