PRS SE Angelus Custom Acoustic-Electric
I took delivery just a few days ago and can't put this guitar down. The SE Angelus Custom is beautifully constructed and flawlessly finished. It has incredible tone and is remarkably even across the full range. It sustains like nobody's business and will only get better as the woods age. The neck is a very comfortable size and shape and the fretboard is smooth and extremely playable. I can't speak for the electronics as yet but I expect the same quality in that aspect. The guitar arrived set up perfectly.
It is clear that these guitars are manufactured to PRS' exceptionally high standards. The detail is impeccable and the moment you pick it up you know you are holding a very well built guitar.
The guitar was back ordered a few months ago but it was well worth the wait. As has always been the case, dealing with Mac Hatton at Sweetwater was a pleasure. He kept me updated on delivery promises from PRS (apparently these guitars are in great demand and I now know why) and was, as always, fully invested in providing the very best customer service. Mac is a great guy and the reason I do business with Sweetwater.
Everyone has their personal preferences. This one is a great fit for me. If you are considering this guitar get out there and test drive one if possible. This is a beautiful instrument at a price you won't find from any other guitar manufacturer for this level of quality.
Most folks work hard for their money and getting good value is imperative. The PRS SE Angelus Custom is a great value. Top quality craftsmanship at a very fair price. Kudos to PRS for providing an instrument of this caliber at a price more players can manage. And a great extra.... it arrives in a very nice PRS hardshell case.
Thanks Mac and Sweetwater for the great service!
