Stunning 3-Dimensional Character
The PRS SE A50E pairs maple back and sides with a solid spruce top for stunning warmth and depth. When matched with PRS hybrid“X”/Classical bracing, which allows the top to freely vibrate and project, the SE A50E has an uncommon 3-dimensional character for a maple back and side guitar. The Angelus Cutaway body shape delivers comfort and playability, well suited for picking and fingerstyle playing.
Plugged in, the PRS-Voiced Fishman Sonitone pickup system delivers dynamic, organic tone and allows players to easily take this guitar from rehearsal to the stage. 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 spruce top, ebony fretboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, as well as PRS trademark bird inlays and headstock design. Ships with a high-quality hardshell case.
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.

"The PRS A50E is exquisitely built with sonic signatures that speak with clarity and resonance. At these prices, PRS’s new family of SE acoustic guitars is definitely worth a try."

“Fingerstyle players may enjoy the A50E’s accentuated midrange, and almost anybody will enjoy the huge sound this guitar packs.”
- American Songwriter
“Whether you’re into linear licks or blocked chords, and no matter if you’re a nuanced fingerstylist or a bash-it-out plectrum strummer, here’s a beautiful acoustic from a name you know that’s well worth the dough…You’d never know that this is a ‘budget’ PRS.”
