Few guitars match the beauty of a PRS. With the PRS SE A40E it's safe to say this is true of their acoustics as well as electrics. Featuring an Angelus cutaway body with hybrid bracing, lovely appointments, and excellent Fishman electronics, this guitar is great for the hard working acoustic player looking for amazing quality at a great price.

Angelus Cutaway Body with Hybrid Bracing
The PRS SE A40E sports the sleekly designed Angelus cutaway body. The nicely sized body with cutaway allows for comfort and playability all the way up the neck.  It's crafted from Ovangkol, a species similar to rosewood, and topped with solid spruce. The body is supported with Hybrid "X"/Classical bracing, affording a nice compromise between strength and free vibration, allowing the tonewoods to ring out true to sound.

Lovely Appointments
The body of this guitar boasts a sweet Cream binding with beautiful Tiger Acrylic purfling, and a combination Tiger Acryllic and Cream/Black rosette. The SE A40E also has an ebony bridge and bone saddle, as well as PRS-designed tuners. The 20-fret ebony fretboard sports elegant bird inlays, a PRS signature. All-in-all, this is one fine acoustic guitar with some fine appointments.

Excellent Fishman Electronics
Fishman is known for its acoustic amplification systems. Outfitting some of the best in the business, Fishman's pickups and preamps take acoustics to new levels. The PRS SE A40E is outfitted with Fishman GT1 acoustic electronics. Featuring an under-saddle pickup and soundhole-mounted preamp with volume and tone controls, the Fishman GT1 captures organic sonic character from this beautiful acoustic.

Best guitar i have ever played


By far the best acoustic ive been able to play. Ive played other brands and used to only favor ibanez acoustics but once i played a prs acoustic i couldnt put it down. I knew i had to buy it even if that meant my wallet was not happy lol. Ive had it for a couple of weeks now and it's absolutely beautiful. The tone is amazing on this thing. Super comfortable and easy to play as well. Definitely would recommend getting this or another guitar from prs. They produce some really great guitars.





Nice crisp sound.
