Small Body, Big Voice
The PRS SE P20E is a parlor-sized acoustic with a big voice. The PRS P20E features all-mahogany construction, and has an organic, warm voice. Featuring PRS hybrid “X”/Classical bracing, which allows the top to freely vibrate, the SE P20E projects with even, bold tone. Its smaller size makes playing for hours fun and comfortable and allows for more convenient transport.
Parlor-sized acoustics can be miscategorized because of their size but make no mistake this is a professional-grade instrument. Plug in, and the PRS-Voiced Fishman Sonitone pickup system delivers dynamic, organic tone, so whether writing, recording, or performing, the P20E is sure to impress. This electronics system features an undersaddle pickup and soundhole mounted preamp with easy-to-access volume and tone controls, which essentially transforms what some may consider a “couch guitar” into a workhorse stage instrument.
Available in three satin finishes with herringbone rosettes and accents, PRS SE Parlor acoustics look as good as they sound. Other high-quality features include a solid mahogany top, ebony fretboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, as well as PRS trademark bird inlays and headstock design. PRS SE Parlor acoustics come with a gig bag and are strung with 12-53 strings.
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.

“From cozy travel companion to performing an acoustic set, for a beginner player to the seasoned musician, the SE P20E is an affordable, fun instrument that will deliver uncompromised playability. It even comes with a gig bag!”
“Ultra comfortable, and has a really large and loud presence, easily competing with other acoustics without compromising in any field. Straight out of the box you can already tell that it’s ready to take on whatever you throw at it. The tension feels just right, and almost buttery to play while the construction feels sturdy."

"The PRS P20 is one of the best parlor guitars for modern players. The design, playability, and tone are all forward-thinking enough without losing the charm of the parlor acoustic guitar vibe. And for the price, you really can't beat it."
