Maybe you didn't know, but PRS makes some amazing acoustic guitars too. They're right up there with all the premier acoustic brands you already know. Featuring brilliant body construction, premier PRS appointments, and the well-regarded Fishman GT1 electronics, the SE A50E is great for gigging and recording, sporting tremendous sound and design.

Brilliant Body Construction
PRS's Angelus body sports a cutaway to allow higher fret access. This SE A50E is carved from maple and topped with solid spruce. The bracing is PRS Hybrid "X"/Classic, which gives the top room to vibrate and allows the tone to ring out. The neck is a powerful mahogany, capped with a 20-fret ebony fretboard. With a comfortable size and quality tonewoods, the natural sound and feel of this guitar won't disappoint.    

Premier PRS Appointments
Dressed in some really nice appointments, the SE A50E is delicately crafted to look as good as it plays. The body is lined in abalone purfling and a white/black binding, and the soundhole is surrounded with a combination abalone and white/black rosette. Elegant bird inlays fly up the neck, which is topped with a bone nut. The ebony bridge transfers all the strings vibrations beautifully, while the PRS-designed tuners hold the strings securely in place.

Fishman GT1 Electronics
Fishman's well known electronics systems outfit many a famous acoustic-electric guitar. PRS placed a Fishman GT1 system boasts an under-saddle pickup in the SE A50E to capture all the natural acoustic tone. The soundhole mounted preamp features easily accessible volume and tone controls, so you'll have no problem adjusting the tone to your liking.

I would recommend to others.


This guitar is a special instrument. In this price range, it is exquisitely detailed, plays well, and sounds crisp and full. Great balance between the upper and lower strings. Love it! I didn't notice when I made the purchase that it has no pick guard. That will be a problem down the road after it is played over time. Hate to mack up the polished finish that PRS took pains to perfect.



Wow just wow!


Iv3 been a high end Taylor player for a long time. I had come to the store looking for a better nylon guitar when the sales person brought in a cold off the truck prs acoustic. It had never been played. He said try it and so I did. I tried not to look too over joyed while asking the price. I just looked at him and said sold! It's lighter with a bigger bottom but....it's nearly perfect in balance and intonation. After coming from the new Taylor braving intonation I'm really picky. This made the cut. I just need to find out what strings came with it. It's about as close to perfect as it gets. It is a complement not replacement guitar. It has its own sound and place. I still love my Taylor's and now I love this guitar too. Separate distinct and equal at a much lower price. If I could only have one I'd still stay with my 914ce but this is a very honorable purchase.



Buyer's Remorse = 0


I am absolutely loving my new PRS guitar. I usually have a bit of buyers remorse after making a substantial purchase. But not so with this guitar. It has everything I was wanting including a beautiful look but most importantly tone. Matt was very helpful in the process, set it up perfectly and also put on new strings. Much appreciated! Love It Love It Love It!!!
