The PRS SE P20E is a parlor-sized acoustic with a big voice. The PRS P20E features all-mahogany construction, and has an organic, warm voice. Featuring PRS hybrid “X”/Classical bracing, which allows the top to freely vibrate, the SE P20E projects with even, bold tone. These guitars boast all-mahogany construction, and have an organic, warm voice. Its smaller size makes playing for hours fun and comfortable and allows for more convenient transport.
Parlor-sized acoustics can be miscategorized because of their size but make no mistake this is a professional-grade instrument. Plug in, and the Fishman GT1 pickup system delivers dynamic, organic tone, so whether writing, recording, or performing the P20E is sure to impress. This electronics system features an undersaddle pickup and soundhole mounted preamp with easy-to-access volume and tone controls, which essentially transforms what some may consider a “couch guitar” into a workhorse stage instrument.
Available in three satin finishes with herringbone rosettes and accents, PRS SE Parlor acoustics look as good as they sound. Other high-quality features include a solid mahogany top, ebony fretboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, as well as PRS trademark bird inlays and headstock design. PRS SE Parlor acoustics come with a gig bag and are strung with 12-53 strings.
“We intended to release these guitars in conjunction with our Experience PRS 35th Anniversary event. We are extremely disappointed we had to cancel that celebration, but, over time, we will still release a series of new products that were slated for that celebration. We are happy to offer these new instruments as the first of those announcements,” said Jack Higginbotham, PRS Guitars COO. “At a time when players might enjoy a new and unique tool for writing, home-recording, and getting lost in playing for hours without ending up with a sore strumming shoulder, we thought these guitars would make a good companion.”
“This thing is absolutely ready to take on stage. The pickup sounds beautiful and natural. It’s just an all-purpose instrument,” said PRS Artist Davy Knowles. “I mean it’s a great guitar for keeping at the end of your couch and picking up on the sofa, and it’s super comfortable in that respect, but I think as an actual touring, gigging instrument – fantastic. And, as a recording instrument, it’s beau- tiful. I’ve already used it on recordings of mine, and I was super pleased.”
