Paul Reed Smith Tonare Grand Custom Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
PRS's mastery turns to acoustic guitars
Paul Reed Smith is considered one of the world's finest guitarmakers, known around the globe for their gorgeous electric guitars, each dripping with an incredible tonal palette. And now, PRS — in collaboration with premier guitarist Martin Simpson — has directed all that expertise to the realm of acoustic instruments, crafting two lines — the Angelus and the Tonare Grand — each designed and crafted with an unwavering attention to detail and tone.
The finest tonewoods and PRS-signature appointments
The PRS Tonare Grand Custom features a 16" Tonare Grand body. Its solid top crafted from beautiful Adirondack spruce, while quality cocobolo is used for the back and sides. The Peruvian mahogany neck is topped with a premium ebony fingerboard (which is adorned with beautiful bird inlays), and the top features gorgeous maple purfling. As visually elegant as the Tonare Grand is, however, it's even better when you pick it up and play it! This amazing acoustic gives you substantial volume and midrange — its an exceptional instrument for all-around strumming and also lends itself well to flatpicking playing styles.
Take Tonare's tone onstage
Paul Reed Smith built the Tonare Grand Custom to sound stunning acoustically, but they didn't forget about live players. The Tonare Grand Custom comes equipped with a proprietary PRS Pickup system, so you can take that fantastic sound to the stage. This onboard system gives you a very natural sound when you plug in; you'll love your Tonare onstage and off!

by joe from crofton. from crofton, mdTwo years of playing the Tonare Grand. I fell in love with this thing when i first heard it. That sound was wonderful, but, in reality, pales in comparison to what it is now.

again, ONE guitar.
but one guitar with unreal sustain, complex tones, delicate voice(and this from a pretty jumbo guitar), and single note dispersion over chords. ONE guitar.
this is how a tonare grand sounds. If God is a guitarist, this is what he plays. close [-]
