Beautiful Tonewood Combo in the Signature PRS Angelus Cutaway Shape
When it comes to wood on an acoustic guitar, that can be one of the most important factors when it comes to your sound. The Paul Reed Smith SE A40E acoustic-electric guitar features a beautiful solid Sitka spruce top with ovangkol back and sides to sonically complement each other. This offers a very full and lush tone especially with the hybrid "X" classical bracing, which puts out more resonation through the guitar's top. Paired with the Angelus Cutaway shape, this SE A40E provides the perfect blend of superb tone, comfort, playability, and upper fret access.

Fishman GT1 Pickup System
Thanks to the power of the Fishman GT1 pickup system, you're able to achieve a beautifully-authentic, organic natural tone that will sound amazing whether you're plugged in or not. Essentially, what you hear unplugged would be what you hear plugged in, but with a more dynamic range. For more tonal control, the electronics give you easy access to your volume and tone controls, which are incorporated into the soundhole-mounted preamp.

High-Quality Features
At an incredible price, you get some of the highest in quality of features that most top-of-the-line guitars would have. This SE A40E is beautifully crafted with an ebony fretboard and bridge, which gives off such a smooth feel and a beautifully bright resonance from the wood itself. Furthermore, the fretboard and bridge are complemented by a bone nut and saddle for a glass-like sustain that comes out so clean and smooth. All around, this Paul Reed Smith SE A40E acoustic-electric guitar is crafted with so much love and care, you cannot go wrong with a build like this.
