High Quality Tonewoods and Superior Build Quality Give This Single Cutaway Acoustic/Electric a Unique Voice and Next Level Playability
The PRS SE A55E features a single cutaway Angelus style body with a solid Sitka Spruce top and Quilted Maple back and sides for tone that is simply stunning in its warmth and depth. When matched with the PRS hybrid“X” - Classical bracing, the top is allowed to vibrate freely and project, giving the SE A55E a 3-dimensional character that is not usually found in an acoustic with maple back and sides. The Angelus Cutaway body shape delivers comfort and playability, well suited for picking and fingerstyle playing.
When plugged in, the Fishman GT1 pickup system delivers a tone that is both organic and dynamic, allowing this guitar to travel well from the studio to the stage. The Fishman GT1 Pickup system features both an undersaddle pickup and a preamp mounted in the soundhole, with ergonomically designed volume and tone controls that are easy to access while you are playing.
The wide/fat Mahogany neck with an Ebony fingerboard, embossed with classic PRS bird-inlays, feels substantial in the hand and contributes greatly to the guitar’s warm and balanced tone. Hardware includes an ebony bridge with a bone saddle and a bone nut, as well as PRS designed tuners with the trademark PRS headstock design. High-quality hardshell case is included.
