The PRS SE A20E brings all-mahogany construction to our best-selling body shape: the Angelus Cutaway. The Angelus Cutaway body shape delivers comfort and playability and is well-suited for picking and fingerstyle playing. The all-mahogany body gives the PRS SE A20E an organic, warm voice. When matched with PRS hybrid “X”/Classical bracing, which allows the top to freely vibrate and project, the SE A20E’s voice projects with breathtaking volume and delicate nuance.
Plugged in, the PRS-Voiced Fishman Sonitone Pickup delivers dynamic, organic tone that allows the natural sound of the instrument to come through. “The EQ in this pickup system sounds like you mic’d the guitar. It’s very musical,” said Paul Reed Smith. This electronics system features an undersaddle pickup and soundhole mounted preamp with easy-to-access volume and tone controls.
Additional high-quality features include a solid top, ebony fretboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, as well as PRS trademark bird inlays and headstock design. Ships in a high-quality acoustic gig bag.
PRS Hybrid “X”/Classical Bracing Pattern
With an “X” brace behind the bridge for support and classical fan bracing on the belly of the guitar, PRS’s acoustic top bracing pattern allows the guitar’s top to freely vibrate and project, resulting in a powerful and unique voice.
Bone Nut and Saddle
PRS acoustics feature bone nuts and saddles. Bone is a hard material (that can still be shaped to fit) and helps the guitar to sustain longer with more tonal character.
EQ’d in Paul Reed Smith’s home studio and implemented by Larry Fishman and his engineering team, the PRS-Voiced Fishman Sonitone Pickup provides players with a warm, organic tone that allows the natural sound of the instrument to come through.
