A first for PRS, the parlour-shaped P20E Tonare is a small body acoustic capable of sweet, singing highs, backed up with the build quality of renowned PRS electric guitars.
Tonare Parlour Shape
The parlour body shape is rooted in 19th century guitar building, when presence and projection were not as highly demanded in acoustic design. Bring that to the present day and the smaller size lends itself perfectly to delicate fingerpicking and a pronounced, clear tone.
With the brilliant Fishman GT1 piezo pickup able to connect the P20E to a PA system, you've got the best of both worlds. Playing plugged or unplugged grants you rich clarity – unlike a larger acoustic's heavier low-end.
The P20E is made of an all-mahogany, non-cutaway body and neck to make up for the lack of size. This warm sound introduces a satisfying belly to what is otherwise a naturally treble-laden voicing.
The short 24.72 inch scale length neck allows for quick jumps across the luxurious ebony fingerboard. It's matched with a beautifully contoured ebony bridge granting comfortable picking hand placement. You also get the iconic bird inlays to finish off the look.
Another show of superb PRS build quality is the hybrid X bracing, which ensures seamless construction and an even distribution of projection and vibrations across the body.
