A fingerpicker's dream, with luxurious appointments to make it a true work of art.
The PRS Angelus Cutaway Custom Acoustic-Electric Guitar delivers generous volume and bass with an ideal tonal balance not usually found in acoustic cutaway guitars. Though well-suited for finger-style players, the Paul Reed Smith Angelus guitar is versatile enough for many kinds of music. The cutaway ads comfort when accessing the higher frets, so you can have full access to the guitar's range.
The acoustic-electric Angelus guitar's top is Adirondack spruce—a rare and highly desirable wood known for its balanced tone and light appearance. The guitar's rosewood back and sides offers rich tone and a gorgeous dark-grain appearance.
Rosewood back and sides are tonewoods traditionally revered for their big sound, balanced projection, and surprising strength of sound and timbre. A mahogany neck adds a slight softness to the Angelus gutiar for a well-rounded tone. The set neck maintains the structural integrity of the guitar, so there's no drop-off in tone, and you hear the full richness of this amazing PRS guitar with every strum.
The cocobolo bridge and fingerboard offer lasting sustain and a sleek look. The wide-neck shape, 1-3/4" nut width, and 12" radius offer comfort for intricate movements along the Angelus gutiar's 21 frets. Robson hand-machined tuners keep precise tuning.
For playing live at larger venues and studio work, an integrated PRS acoustic pickup system provides easy amplification of the guitar's rich, natural 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 with aluminum/bronze hardware, highly decorative fingerboard inlays, body binding, and rosette, the acoustic-electric PRS Angelus guitar will cause a commotion every time you take it out of the case. The Angelus represents PRS' painstaking attention to detail, quality craftsmanship, and use of sought-after woods, to produce a guitar that looks as beautiful as it sounds. Look forward to loving your cutaway custom PRS Angelus acoustic-electric guitar at first strum. Includes case.
