Full, Vintage Tone
The PRS SE A60E pairs ziricote back and sides with a solid spruce top. The tone favors a full bottom end with rolled-off highs reminiscent of some vintage acoustic guitars. When matched with PRS hybrid “X”/Classical bracing, which allows the top to freely vibrate, the SE A60E’s voice projects with breathtaking volume and delicate nuance. 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.
The SE A60E is beautifully appointed with abalone and figured maple accents. 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.

“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.”
- Guitar Player
“No matter how I played the Angelus, it delivered a nicely proportioned sound, with a spanky top end layered over a controlled bass and midrange. The low end wasn’t cavernous or boomy, which helped it feel balanced across the frequency range, especially useful for fingerstyle parts on open tunings and easy to control through a loud amp.”
“After spending a few hours both in front of the instrument and behind it, I was fully prepared to take it to the gig and it did not fail…The SE Angelus is worth considering for its combination of looks, sound and utility in this price class.”
"The SE T60E was designed with vintage guitars in mind, to have a full, rounded-out dynamic range that favors the low end and midrange (something helped by the use of ziricote). The sound is big but is also spread out evenly—making it versatile without being too in-your-face and clearly lending itself to a range of styles."
"I rely on my PRS Acoustics for everything! Whether I’m playing a show or writing songs, they are perfect for both and extremely versatile. I constantly get complimented on the tone, sound quality, and look of my guitars on stage!"
