The PRS SE Angelus A40E Electro Acoustic Guitar in Natural finish combines luxurious tonewoods with PRS' superb build quality and Fishman electronics to create a winning combination. Every guitarist from beginner to seasoned pro will love the way the A40E performs. It is the ideal guitar for anything from jamming along to your favourite tracks at home, or performing to adoring crowds on the festival stage.
The elegantly shaped single-cutaway body profile plays like a dream, allowing you to perform seated or standing in equal comfort. The shallow body depth pairs with the diminutive lower bout to create a snug feel, whilst the single-cutaway affords easy access to highest frets. For its size, the Angelus boasts an impressive energy, delivering a confident output that makes it ideal for solo performances, or as an ensemble instrument.
The Angelus A40E is built using ovangkol for the back and sides, a tonewood that has been adopted by many luthiers due to its full midrange and subtle high end. Thanks to its careful tonal handling, ovangkol is the ideal choice for fingerstyle players. The top is built using solid Sitka spruce, which creates a superb soundboard thanks to its outstanding resonance. Supported by PRS hybrid "X"/Classical bracing pattern, the top has received ample reinforcement to ensure its longevity for years to come.
COMFORTABLE NECK PROFILE
The neck is made from mahogany, which establishes a reassuringly sturdy feel in the hand. Shaped to PRS' wide fat profile, your hand can glide along, fretting chords along the entire length of the neck in total comfort. Married to the mahogany is a sumptuous ebony fingerboard that is adorned with the unique PRS Birds inlay pattern.
The PRS SE Angelus A40E is equipped with the Fishman GT1 electronics' system, which is designed to translate the rich acoustic timbre of the guitar with absolute transparency. Featuring an undersaddle pickup, and soundhole-mounted preamp, the volume and tone controls are within easy reach for ready adjustment. Whatever environment you're performing in, you can shape your guitar's output to suit.
The body is home to an ebony bridge with bone saddle, which anchors each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain. At the top of the neck you'll find an accompanying bone nut that works alongside the PRS-designed tuning machines to maintain tension and tuning with tireless dedication.
Each PRS SE Angelus A40E Electro Acoustic Guitar is supplied with a PRS hardshell case, so that you can take your new pride and joy with you to wherever your music takes you.
