The new PRS A20E Angelus Cutaway and P50E parlor acoustics expand the brand’s SE acoustic guitar lineup. Both acoustic models feature unique PRS-designed bracing patterns. One that PRS states should help with an increased vibration and therefore better projection.
A20E Angelus Cutaway
The new PRS SE A20E has an all-mahogany body and uses the PRS-designed hybrid X/Classical top bracing for increased vibration and projection. This bracing is paired with a heavily braced back and sides. Which PRS says will “encourage the tone of the guitar to push through the top”.
This model comes with a mahogany ‘Wide Fat’ neck with an ebony fretboard and bridge. A bone nut and saddle complete the overall construction.
Each guitar comes with a PRS-voiced Fishman Sonitone pickup system. The system is comprised of an under saddle pickup paired with s soundhole-mounted preamp. The controls for volume and tone are also easy to access for on-the-fly tweaks.
MSRP – EUR 890 *
PRS SE A20E BX
Nest up is the smaller bodies SE P50E Parlor model. This model features the same PRS-designed bracing as the A20E Angelus Cutaway model above. Plus, you also get the same PRS-voiced Fishman Sonitone pickup system with this guitar as well.
This time the guitar has a Solid Sitka Spruce top paired with figured maple back and sides. Again, there is a mahogany ‘Wide Fat’ neck with an ebony fretboard and bridge. And just like the Angelus, it comes with a bone nut and saddle.
The P50E model is more expensive and so you’ll expect to pay around €1195 for one. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative, then Thomann has a great deal at around 40% off on these previous PRS Parlor models *.
