A take on Lifeson's Private Stock PRS, the SE Lifeson brings high-end features within reach of more guitarists. Sweetwater's performing guitarists are especially excited about the shallower body to reduce feedback and increase comfort. The SE Angelus Lifeson is a top-quality acoustic-electric guitar for any gig.

  • High-end appointments taken from the Lifeson Private Stock guitar

  • PRS undersaddle electronics for getting great sound live
High-end appointments taken from the Lifeson Private Stock Guitar

This is no "budget" axe! The Alex Lifeson Angelus SE offers some of the great features found in the PRS Lifeson Private Stock acoustic guitar. Features such as PRS's proprietary bracing pattern to get more resonance and warmth from the smaller body, a solid spruce top, and their famous Birds in Flight inlay pattern. We're sure Alex Lifeson would expect nothing less.

Shallower body for enhanced feedback protection and comfort

Like the Private Stock Lifeson, the Lifeson SE has a sightly shallower body depth. This design offers an unbelievably comfortable playing experience, with very little discomfort from the edge of the guitar digging into your strumming arm. It also helps eliminate feedback from loud stage environments. If there's one thing Alex Lifeson knows it is loud stages!

PRS undersaddle electronics for getting great sound live

The Lifeson SE comes with a PRS pickup system for getting your songs across on stage. The unit consists of an undersaddle pickup and controls for volume and tone accessed through the sound hole. The pickup adds versatility and its low profile design helps keep the beautiful look of your guitar pure. Lifeson plays loudly and with this guitar, so can you.

PRS Alex Lifeson Angelus SE Acoustic-electric Guitar Features
  • Shallower body for avoiding feedback in loud environments
  • PRS undersaddle pickup system for taking the guitar live
  • Proprietary bracing system offering added warmth and volume
  • Premium tonewoods like a solid spruce top
  • Bone nut and saddle
  • Birds in Flight inlay for the high-end PRS look
  • Hardshell case
The PRS Alex Lifeson SE is born to play loud!

Absolutely Unbelievable

I have not owned or even played a nicer guitar for even double the money. Love the neck (feels like playing and electric) and how thin it is. Great for stage because the thin body doesn't produce feedback like a thicker one. Sounds amazing. No built in tuner though

PRS Angelus Alex Lifeson Thinline

Not sure anything I say can do justice to this guitar. What an awesome instrument. Very well made, easy to play , deep sound from a shallow body and one of the best buys out there. I am not going to bash any other instrument maker, but this sounds way better than my previous, high dollar acoustic. I usually don't care for electric/acoustic guitars, but I plugged it in and can say it sounds very acoustic if you want, yet you can make it sound gnarly too. Love it!!!

Great Guitar

I ordered a Taylor 516ce a couple months ago and ended up sending it back as I didn't really like the sound, especially for that price. I happened to notice this new posting and jumped on the pre-order list. I ended up having to wait almost 3 months, but it was worth it. I love Rush and Alex and saw them in St. Paul on May 12th.This guitar is beautiful and sounds incredible. It came perfectly setup and in tune out of the box. Evan is a great guy to talk to and very knowledgeable.

Awesome Guitar

Awesome right out of the box, perfect setup, perfect intonation, you can not ask for a better guitar for this kind of coin. Thank you so much to Matt and the guys. Incredible service!

Immaculate Quality, Unparalled Playability

I've been playing electric guitar for about seven years now. I've been playing acoustic guitar for even less than that. My first acoustic was an Alvarez, budget level, nothing really special. When PRS announced this guitar, I knew that I would eventually get it. No pictures will ever do this guitar justice, and no microphone will ever give credence to how silky smooth, crystalline, and warm this guitar sounds. It's something you have to behold in person.The neck on this guitar fits my hand perfectly and, while being incredibly beautiful (you can see every pore in the mahogany), it's also fast when you need it to be while still being solid enough to give you confidence in your chords.Get this guitar. You are doing your country a disservice if you don't get this guitar.

Sweetwater Advice

PRS SE Angelus Alex Lifeson Thinline

It's pretty, fast playing, and comfortable. And while it's not as loud or powerful as many flattops its size, it's responsive and an excellent platform for fast, nimble-fingered fretboard expressions....
