[NAMM] PRS SE Angelus Acoustic
Announced in September 2011, the PRS SE Angelus Standard and Custom models are being showed at NAMM 2012.
Both models include a solid back and solid spruce top, a bone nut and saddle, and PRS SE designed tuners.
A PRS pickup system will be an added option on the SE Angelus models in 2012. The PRS pickup system is an under-saddle design with three bands of EQ and an anti-feedback loop. The pickup uses one 9-volt battery for power.
The SE Angelus shares the same bracing pattern and certain construction features as PRS's acoustic line, as well as the company's bird inlays and headstock design. The PRS SE Angelus is offered in both a "Standard" and "Custom" package. The Angelus Standard includes mahogany sides, a solid mahogany back and a rosewood fretboard and bridge, while the Angelus Custom includes rosewood sides, a solid rosewood back, and an ebony fretboard bridge.
The fully acoustic version of these instruments will begin hitting stores in early 2012. Instruments with the optional pickup system are available for order beginning on January 19, 2012 and will begin shipping in the spring of that year.
Both configurations are being shown at the Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, California from January 19-22, 2012 in PRS Booth #5320.
