With the SE Tonare 6-string acoustic-electric guitar, Paul Reed Smith is bringing a traditional, non-cutaway guitar to their beloved SE acoustic lineup. The guitar is crafted from beautiful solid Sitka spruce top and laminated, figured maple back and sides. The full-feeling neck profile is carved from high-quality mahogany with a sleek ebony fingerboard. And with the addition of the guitar's onboard Fishman GT1 electronics system pushing natural, warm tone while onstage, the SE Tonare T50E acoustic-electric is a must-experience instrument.
PRS's proprietary X-brace/classical hybrid bracing method blends the techniques of some of the most legendary acoustic guitar luthiers in history. This bracing pairs resonant tops with stiff and reflective backs and sides, offering a powerful tone that doesn't mask the intricacies of your playing style. The SE Tonare T50E shares this bracing design with PRS's USA-made production and private stock acoustic guitars. It's a high-end feature you'd expect to find on custom acoustics costing thousands of dollars, but it can be yours at an affordable price.
The PRS Tonare T50E features a Tonare body with a solid spruce top and laminated, figured maple back and sides. The neck of this Tonare T50E follows Paul Reed Smith's "wide" neck shape and is carved from choice mahogany. A bound ebony fretboard gives the neck a smooth feel and rich tones. And the signature bird inlays denote the Tonare as a member of the PRS family. The Tonare T50E manages to strike the perfect balance between modern eye-catching adornments and a traditional acoustic appearance.
Getting your acoustic guitar tone to translate in a live environment can be tricky. That's why PRS outfitted their SE Tonare T50E with a Fishman GT1 under-saddle pickup system. These electronics naturally sense vibration under the saddle. This gives you a clear and strong voice with good feedback rejection. Soundhole controls for tone and volume let you dial in your sound to taste. And the controls' low-profile design does away with unsightly electronics dominating the look of your guitar.
