PRS SE Alex Lifeson
The PRS SE Alex Lifeson is a road-worthy guitar for players in need of a stage and studio-ready instrument. The thinline body provides musicians with a comfortable playing experience and the PRS bracing pattern gives the guitar a resonance and warmth that will catch every ear in the room.
Carrying over unique appointments from the Private Stock Alex Lifeson acoustic, the PRS SE Alex Lifeson features a thinner body depth than PRS’s standard Angelus model. A “Birds in Flight” inlay adorns the rosewood fretboard and pairs nicely with the unique back and sides crafted from figured Dao wood. Players will find a noticeably warm and resonate tone in the PRS SE Alex Lifeson – even when amplified! An undersaddle pickup with both volume and tone knobs will give you all the control you need from the stage.
“I was very pleased when PRS presented me with my SE Angelus acoustic, a beautiful guitar of stunning quality. It was in response to the challenge of building a guitar that shared the integrity and attention to detail that the Alex Lifeson Private Stock Angelus possesses in a package more broadly accessible. The PRS SE Alex Lifeson Thinline is that model. Carefully selected materials, expert craftsmanship and a smart approach to concept resulted in a guitar that is beautiful to look at and rewarding to play.” – Alex Lifeson
