When you have a guitar shipped to you, from thousands of miles away, it's a rare occasion that it shows up perfectly in tune. Add in the icy winter conditions of Davy Knowles home base of Chicago, and the fact that the guitar being shipped to him was an acoustic, the likelihood was even less. Giddy with the excitement of receiving delivery of a new guitar, Davy broke the cardinal rule of letting the shipping box acclimate to its new surroundings and hastily opened it. Inside he found the prototype SE Series P20E parlor acoustic guitar, and much to his surprise, it was, "bang in tune."
The PRS SE P20 is a parlor-sized acoustic with a big voice. Boasting traditional parlor features like sweet, midrange tone, historic vibe, and easy portability, the PRS SE P20 also brings a unique voice to players. The PRS hybrid “X”/Classical bracing locks down the back and sides while allowing the top to freely vibrate, allowing the PRS SE P20 to project with even, bold tone, while the all-mahogany construction provides an organic warmth to the guitar. Its smaller size keeps playing fun and comfortable for hours, so whether writing, recording, or performing the P20 is sure to impress.
Available in three satin finishes with herringbone rosettes and accents, PRS SE Parlor acoustics look as good as they sound. Other high-quality features include a solid mahogany top, ebony fretboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, as well as PRS trademark bird inlays and headstock design. PRS SE Parlor acoustics come with a gig bag and are strung with 12-53 strings.
