OVERVIEW

Everything you'd expect from PRS applied to an acoustic-electric instrument.

The PRS SE Angelus Custom model is made with high-quality components, including a solid back and solid spruce top, a bone nut and saddle, and PRS SE designed tuners. This model comes with the PRS pickup system, highlighting the instrument's rich, resonant, and responsive tone. The PRS pickup system is an under-saddle design with three bands of EQ and an anti-feedback loop. The pickup uses one 9-volt battery for power.

The SE Angelus shares the same proprietary bracing pattern and several distinct construction features as PRS' acclaimed Maryland-made acoustic line, as well as the company's trademark bird inlays and headstock design. The PRS SE Angelus Custom includes rosewood sides, a solid rosewood back, and an ebony fretboard bridge.

"The SE Angelus models are the newest additions to the SE product family, which has matured into a comprehensive line of electric and acoustic guitars as well as amplifiers. My hope is that all of our SE products become tools for making music and sources of joy," said Paul Reed Smith. Includes hardshell case.

FEATURES
  • Solid spruce top
  • PRS X-brace/classical hybrid bracing

    Comments about PRS SE Angelus Custom Piezo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I have yet to find a PRS Acoustic guitar within my proximity within a store, but I saw the factory videos from the PRS website, and the attention to details that they put into their guitars, I knew would translate into this SE Angeles for about 1/5th the price of the Maryland built Acoustic...wow, am I impressed! Tonality is amazing. electronics perform beautifully...I couldn't be happier with this guitar! The guitar comes with a beautiful hard case as well....(which I had to call to PRS direct to find out if it came with the case or not...make sure before you buy it!)

        Comments about PRS SE Angelus Custom Piezo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        Its a great product. playability is great, especially up the fret. Great finger style, also use for strumming.
        My only problem was not with the guitar but with Musician Friend, made me buy an extra guitar case ,because the sales rep. doesn't know if it has a case or not. really poor. But it does come with a case. Other wise I recommend this product.

          Comments about PRS SE Angelus Custom Piezo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I've owned four PRS electrics and what they have all had in common is that they have always played like guitars that were more expensive than they really are. I'm always looking for that last guitar I will ever buy. I have an 21 year old Ovation 12 string Elite Special that will go to my grave with me. I have a PRS single cut SE electric that has convinced me that I won't need another electric guitar. And now I have the PRS Angelus SE Custom that has completed my stable. I bought the guitar online from MF and it is flawless. The quality of the build is impeccable and the tone is what you would expect from PRS. Like no one else. It is bright but balance weather plugged or unplugged. I spent an hour in a music store playing it and comparing it to Martins and Taylors and it was every bit their equal but with a sound all its own. Musicians Friend took great care to ship it double boxed with padding between the boxes. Being a huge Paul Reed Smith fan I might be a little biased but I was not disappointed.

          Very Nice Guitar for the price!

          By Johninmn

          from White Bear Lake MN

          Pros

          • Aesthetically Pleasing
          • Clear Intonation
          • Great electronics
          • very easy to play

          Cons

          • Thin Base Notes Un Amped

          Best Uses

          • Finger Style Playing

          Comments about PRS SE Angelus Custom Piezo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          In my opinion this is a great Mid Range Guitar sound wise. It projects the highs and mid range note sounds exceptionally well.The Base notes seem a bit muted when playing the instrument unplugged; but you can correct this to a large degree when you are plugged in by adjusting the base with the on board electronics.It is very comfortable and easy to play up & down the fret board. In fairness I'm judging this guitar against my Gibson J-200 which is a totally different instrument,Jumbo Body with Maple Back and sides different bracing,as opposed to the Cut away body style and the Rosewood back and sides on the PRS,( they both have sitka spruce tops) so the sound will be understandably different. I bought it to have a leave out guitar at the ready to pick up and play whenever the mood hits which is frequently. I would recommend this guitar to finger style players but you will not go wrong for any style you want to play. It also handles alternative tunings very well and makes a nice addition to my collection of acoustic guitars. Hopefully this helps you make your guitar purchase decision easier.

            Comments about PRS SE Angelus Custom Piezo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            I usually don't do reviews, but the guitar deserves a shout out. I own many guitars, high end Gibsons, Taylor, Larrivee and Martin, but I can truthfully say for the little money spent on this guitar it can stand next any of my guitars. You don't have to spend a ton of money to get a top notched instrument..

            Comments about PRS SE Angelus Custom Piezo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            One of the finest guitars that I've played (Playing for over 35 years). The most attractive part was that the tone never dies, it sustains...Clean finish. Only draw back in my opinion is that the guitar doesn't have pick guard, and the strumming sometime causes scratches on the clean, smooth nitrocellulose top. Fret board is fantastic (reminds me of my EG) When electrified, sounds awesome. I am enjoying every minute playing...Low action setup makes you play gentle, and clean. Using 11-56 gauge strings. Most pleasant surprise is that it DOESN'T come up with gig bag, but a nice hard case.

            Comments about PRS SE Angelus Custom Piezo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            I was concerned about the wide neck profile advertised by PRS...the neck isn't so much wide as it is fat. Since I'm a bass player the neck actually feels great to me, I'm very pleased! I play through a Bose L1 and use a line 6 pod x3 live for effects. I think I've finally found the combo I've been looking for! This guitar sounds great, plays great & looks great! AND, it comes with a hsc! Buy one. Musicians Friend did everything to make sure I was satisfied after an initial miss fire. I rec'd the acoustic only version instead of the acoustic electric model. No worries, the correct model was shipped overnight.

              Comments about PRS SE Angelus Custom Piezo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              This is simply the best acoustic you can buy in this price range. The only better ones I have ever played are the Maryland Made PRS Models and certain very expensive Gibsons and Martins.

              I bought mine slightly used and it is excellent in every way. Sounds better than guitars than many much more expensive guitars. Built in electronics package is nice and functional. Although the guitar is so loud and sounds so good acoustically that I rarely ever have a reason to plug it in. Everyone who hears it comments on how good it sounds. The only reason I would ever replace it would be to get one of the Maryland made PRS acoustics, which sound even better and are basically works of art. And if I ever do get one of those I will hand this down to my kids. It's that good.
