Yet more guitar new-ness this week! Hot on the heels of the S2 Vela comes something very different, but still stylish, distinctive and great value…
Rush’s Alex Lifeson has had a long association with PRS Guitars and developed his stunning Private Stock signature acoustic following the band’s 2013 Clockwork Angels tour. And now, Alex’s preference for a thinline acoustic that still delivers big, imposing tone is available to non-rock stars with the arrival of a new SE Series model.
The guitar’s thinner body provides excellent comfort – and is a boon on stage – and boasts PRS’s Hybrid X/Classical bracing pattern, which contributes resonance and depth not always found in thinline acoustics. The addition of an undersaddle pickup with both volume and tone controls.
As with all SE Series guitars, the Alex Lifeson Thinline acoustic is beautifully built and represents great value, but it’s not missing the finer details – in particular we love the fact that the new guitar has PRS’s distinctive Birds in Flight inlays on the fingerboard. It’s a cool-looking, understated guitar.

The guitar will be available in Europe from early May 2015 and has a recommended retail price of £889 / €1279
