Gearank Recommendation

The PRS SE Angelus A50E appeared on our recommended list for Acoustic-Electric Guitars from April 2021 until August 2022 when it was out-ranked by the Taylor 214ce.


PRS is known mostly for their quality electric guitars, but they have been applying the same quality standards to their acoustic guitars, resulting in highly rated models like the SE Angelus A50E.

This guitar sports a PRS shape called angelus, with solid spruce for the top paired with figured maple for the back and sides.

It also features PRS special hybrid X-brace/classical bracing, which combines X-bracing with classical bracing for improved resonance and structural stability.

PRS opted for Fishman GT1, a discrete pickup and preamp system with volume and tone controls mounted on the underside of the soundhole.

Finally, this guitar comes with nice cosmetic touches, including PRS’ signature bird inlays and it even comes with bindings that match the rosette.
