Behind The Gear
Shorts, sandals, and sunlight aren’t the only things to look forward to this summer! We’re excited to announce our SE Acoustic Factory Authorized Summer Sale!
From June 1st through July 31st, you can pick up any of the PRS SE acoustic models for an awesome price!
Not sure which model is the right fit for you? Don’t worry! All SE Acoustics are designed and built with quality materials and specifications; SE acoustics that are sold and shipped inside the USA are given a full set up and inspection in our Maryland headquarters. We have four great SE acoustic guitars with unique woods and specs – we’re sure you will find the tone that’s perfect for you!
Let's take a closer look at the four SE acoustic options below:
The SE A10E has an all-mahogany body with a warm, woody tone. We offer the A10E in two finish options, Tortoise Shell and Black. The all-mahogany body construction of this guitar provides a controlled attack and strong fundamental, delivering a warm tone with a focused, punchy midrange. This strong midrange character allows the A10E to easily find a non-competing place in a mix, making it ideal for both the studio and the stage.
The SE A20E keeps the A10’s mahogany back and sides but adds a sitka spruce top to the mix. This pairing of a solid spruce top with mahogany is a classic favorite. You’ll find the A20E has a strong, even tone with plenty of sustain. Plus, it just looks great.
The SE A30E also features a solid spruce top but pairs it with beautiful rosewood. The rosewood back and sides give the A30E bell-light highs and full bass response. The A30E is the only SE acoustic in the lineup with an ebony fretboard and bridge, helping to provide an overtone-rich sound.
SE Alex Lifeson
This unique SE acoustic was developed through a collaboration with RUSH guitarist and PRS artist Alex Lifeson. Alex has been a longtime fan of PRS acoustic guitars, often seen playing them live and in the studio. Through close communication, Alex and PRS developed an instrument which offers a number of unique appointments. Most notably, it’s thinner body depth. The thinner depth provides an extremely comfortable playing experience and thus handles gigs and live-playing very well. A “Birds in Flight” inlay adorns the rosewood fretboard and pairs nicely with the unique back and sides crafted from figured Dao wood. Players will find a noticeably warm and resonate tone in the SE Alex Lifeson - even when amplified!
“I was very pleased when PRS presented me with my SE Angelus acoustic, a beautiful guitar of stunning quality. It was in response to the challenge of building a guitar that shared the integrity and attention to detail that the Alex Lifeson Private Stock Angelus possesses in a package more broadly accessible. The SE Alex Lifeson Thinline is that model. Carefully selected materials, expert craftsmanship and a smart approach to concept resulted in a guitar that is beautiful to look at and rewarding to play.” – Alex Lifeson
