Following the successful launch of its SE acoustic series, PRS has added two special limited-edition models – unfortunately, these guitars are only available in Europe.
Premium tonewoods are a standout feature on both models. The A270 features highly figured koa back and sides, while the A265 sports book-matched pau ferro on its back and sides.
Both guitars are built with PRS’s acclaimed Hybrid ‘X’ Classical Bracing, which delivers a well-balanced tone with rich bass and clean highs. This feature made its debut on the $10,000 signature Private Stock acoustics produced for the likes of Martin Simpson and Alex Lifeson.
In terms of electronics, both guitars are outfitted with a reliable Fishman GT1 under-saddle pickup, which delivers a no-nonsense, pure amplified acoustic tone. Both guitars also come with a hardshell case.
Retails at GBP799 each. More info at prsguitarseurope.com.
