Meet The All-New 2018 SE Acoustic Lineup

PRS 2018 SE Acoustic

After countless hours spent researching, prototyping, play-testing, and enjoying, we are excited to introduce to you a whole new lineup of PRS SE Acoustics. Below, meet the new models and read about how they came to be.

The 2018 SE acoustics are offered in six (yes, six!) varieties. Our goal? To offer players a wider selection of features than ever before, and no matter the model, to give musicians the perfect tool to utilize for songwriting, studio recording, or live gigging on stage.

The six new models can best be broken down into three pairs: the SE AX20E & SE TX20E, the SE A40ESE T40E, and the SE A50E & SE T50E.

The A & T prefix in each model correspond to the body shape, "A" for Angelus, "T" for Tonare. To help you visual the product offerings, check out the graphic below:

Both shapes are designed to be instantly comfortable and well-suited for fingerstyle or picking players.

Listen to Paul Reed Smith explain some of the process and philosophies behind these new instruments:
