Premium Tonewoods and Next Level Styling Deliver a Quality Acoustic With a Unique Voice
The PRS SE T50E pairs maple back and sides with a solid spruce top in Grand Tonare body shape, delivering a full and lush tone with incredible depth and warmth. Featuring PRS hybrid“X”/Classical bracing, which allows the top to freely vibrate and project generously, the SE T50E has an uncommon 3-dimensional character that is not common for an acoustic with maple back and sides. The Tonare Grand body shape has a familiar look and feel with a thunderous tone that is quite nuanced, making it well suited for plectrum and fingerstyle playing.
When plugged in, the Fishman GT1 pickup system has a sound that is both natural and dynamic, allowing the SE TE50E to deliver a tone that travels well from rehearsal, to the studio, to the stage. The Fishman GT1 Pickup system comes equipped with an undersaddle pickup and a preamp mounted in the soundhole, and features ergonomically designed volume and tone controls that are easy to access while playing.
The wide/fat Mahogany neck with an Ebony fingerboard embossed with 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.

High Quality Tonewoods and Build Quality Ensure Superior Playability and an Instrument With a Unique Voice
The PRS SE T50E is another example of Paul Reed Smith’s attention to quality and detail when creating an acoustic guitar with the tone, design quality and playability that we have come to expect from PRS instruments. Using superior tonewoods like Figured Maple, Mahogany, and Sitka Spruce, paired with Superior Fishman electronics, PRS has taken great care to ensure that the SE T50E delivers the playability and reliability that guitarists need at a reasonable price point.
