A flatpicker's dream with luxurious appointments to make it a true work of art.
The PRS Tonare Grand Standard Acoustic-Electric guitar offers a distinctive clarity of voice with geneous volume and midrange. The Tonare Grand Standard is unsurpassed for all-around strumming and offers eloquent expression to flatpickers as well.
The Tonare Grand Standard's top is European spruce, a rare and highly desirable wood known for its rich, sensitive tone, brilliant harmonic overtones, and light appearance. The guitar's gorgeous rosewood back and sides offers rich tone as well as a dark-grain appearance.
Mahogany back and sides produce thick dynamic sound, with a good balance of fundamentals and overtones for higher-register soloing. The guitar's mahogany neck adds a slight softness to the Tonare Grand Standard for a well-rounded tone. The set neck maintains the structural integrity of the Grand Standard guitar, so there's no drop-off in tone. You'll hear the full richness of this amazing Paul Reed Smith guitar with each strum.
A cocobolo bridge and fingerboard offer lasting sustain in addition to a sleek look. The wide-neck shape, 1-3/4" nut width, and 12" radius offer comfort for intricate movements along the Tonare guitar's 21 frets. Robson hand-machined tuners keep precise tuning.
When it comes to larger venues and plugged-in situations, the integrated PRS acoustic pickup system provides easy amplification and natural emulation of the Grand Standard guitar's tone. The volume knob is mounted just inside the soundhole. The onboard preamp uses two 9-volt batteries to provide massive headroom that's highly useful in live situations. You can play hard and crank it up loud without fear of overdriving the preamp or distorting.
Dressed in a luxurious nitrocellulose finish and boasting aluminum/bronze hardware, highly decorative fingerboard inlays, and abalone binding and rosette design, the PRS Grand Standard guitar will cause a commotion every time you take it out of the case. The acoustic-electric Paul Reed Smith Tonare Grand Standard guitar symbolizes PRS' painstaking attention to detail, quality craftsmanship, and use of sought-after woods to produce a guitar that looks as beautiful as it sounds. Get ready for love at first strum.
