What we say:

At A Glance:

The PRS SE A55E combines decades worth of experience and craftsmanship to create a modern style acoustic guitar that's inviting to play and sounds amazing. Whether you're playing acoustically or plugged in, the A55E always sounds great, thanks to the solid sitka spruce and quilted maple construction, PRS Hybrid “X” bracing and a Fishman GT1 pickup.

We love PRS' interpretation of the classic acoustic guitar and think this would make an excellent investment for a student guitarist or a reliable gigging guitar for a professional musician.

Features We Love:

Angelus Cutaway Body

The guitar is similar in size to a Grand Concert guitar, making it comfortable for most players and the Angelus cutaway allows for easy access to the higher frets. The medium-sized body brings a slight compression to the tone, making it ideal for both picking and fingerstyle playing.

PRS Hybrid “X” Bracing

PRS have evolved the traditional "X" design and incorporated a fan style bracing behind the bridge, this creates a round sweet tone that projects beautifully from the guitar.

Fishman GT1

Fishman have a reputation as one of the best pickup manufacturers in the world and their acoustic guitar pickups are especially loved. The Fishman GT1 series pickup offers exceptional transparency to present the true sound of your guitar to a speaker system. The system also features a volume and tone control discreetly tucked into the soundhole, so there are no ugly control panels screwed onto the body. It looks like a traditional acoustic with the control and convenience of an electro-acoustic, truly the best of both worlds.

Pros:

  • Comfortable guitar for most players
  • Fishman pickup makes gigging easy

Exceeded my expectations

Edward P. - 3/3/2020

I was blown away by the quality and sound of the guitar. It feels, looks and sounds easily as good as and even better than some of the ?high end? guitars I own and it was less than a third of the price! Cannot praise this enough. The world should know!

Nigel Y. - 26/2/2020

This guitar is outstanding for its price point! It looks and sounds like a much higher end guitar. PRS does not disappoint!
