PRS-quality Acoustic for Everyone
The PRS SE A50 Angelus is an affordable take on a 6-string custom acoustic-electric guitar. The guitar utilizes the beautiful tonewood combination of solid spruce and laminated, figured maple. And the Fishman Sonitone pickup lets you take the stage with the natural amplified tone of your SE A50 Angelus. Finally, its X-brace/classical hybrid bracing is shared with PRS's USA and Private Stock lines for optimum clarity and projection. Gigging guitarists can attest: the SE A50 Angelus gives you PRS quality in an affordable acoustic-electric guitar that begs to be played live.
PRS's X-brace/classical hybrid bracing
PRS's proprietary X-brace/classical hybrid bracing method blends the techniques of some of the most legendary acoustic guitar luthiers in history. This bracing pairs resonant tops with stiff and reflective backs and sides, offering a powerful tone that doesn't mask the intricacies of your playing style. The SE A50 Angelus shares this bracing design with PRS's USA-made production and private stock acoustic guitars. It's a high-end feature you'd expect to find on custom acoustics costing thousands of dollars, but it can be yours at an affordable price.
Fine tonewoods meet signature PRS appointments
The PRS SE A50 Angelus features an Angelus body with a solid spruce top and laminated, figured maple back and sides. The neck of this A50 Angelus follows Paul Reed Smith's wide neck shape and is carved from choice mahogany. A bound ebony fretboard gives the neck a smooth feel and rich tones. And the signature bird inlays denote the Angelus as a member of the PRS family. The SE A50 Angelus manages to strike the perfect balance between modern eye-catching adornments and a traditional acoustic appearance.
Fishman pickup system provides excellent sound onstage
Getting your acoustic guitar tone to translate in a live environment can be tricky. That's why PRS outfitted their SE A40 Angelus with a PRS-voiced Fishman Sonitone pickup. Enjoy the dynamic, natural sound of the Sonitone, and shape your acoustic's sound to your liking with its individual rotary controls for master volume and tone. And the controls' low-profile design does away with unsightly electronics dominating the look of your guitar.
