Small Body, Big Voice
The PRS SE P50E is a parlor-sized acoustic with a big voice. Featuring a solid spruce top and figured maple back and sides, the PRS SE P50E brings a sophisticated new aesthetic to the popular parlor platform. This body size offers bold projection with more focused tone, and the maple back and sides provide unexpected warmth and tonal transparency. When matched with PRS hybrid “X”/Classical bracing, which allows the top to freely vibrate and project, the SE P50E has an uncommon 3-dimensional character for a maple back and side guitar. The Tonare Parlor body shape and shorter (24.72”) scale length make this guitar comfortable to play for hours on end.
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 Abalone purfling and bird inlays, ebony fretboard and bridge, and bone nut and saddle. 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.
