PRS have announced the 2019 models.
The bolt-on model gets the semi-hollow construction and comes in 9 colours.
The PRS bolt-on system does look rather different from Fender’s, and I’d say it’s looking really good.
Ziricote for the SE models
PRS went big on the ziricote wood as they announced the SE Custom 24 Ziricote and the SE Acoustic A60E and T60E.
Stunning ziricote veneer on the SE Custom 24 Ziricote seen above
Following last year’s pair of zebrawood and spalted maple models, the new addition is yet another eye-catching veneer used. It looks like a winner already.
The ziricote acoustics are just as beautiful. Featuring fully-bound body, fretboard and headstock plus the abalone purfling, these guitars are proving to be better value instruments than many low-end Martins or Taylors.
SE A55E and T55E
This pair of quilted maple beauties come in that amazing Abaco Green finish that should ensure the orders come in well before stock arrives in SG.

Stunning ltd ed Koa guitar made in collaboration with Korean music store BuzzBee.
This one features master grade Koa top, Florentine cutaway, plus all the premium features such as elaborate inlays, Baggs Anthem and Gotoh 510s. Truly awesome specs that can rival many high-end guitars.
Street price of 2, 990, 000 Korean Won if you can manage to get it from BuzzBee.

Interesting top veneer for this month’s Select Series – spalted chenchen. Wow.
Looks great with all that grains and sapwood.
Last month’s Select Series sold out within days, so you gotta act fast before these are gone too.

The highly anticipated Meteora has been officially released.
This turned many heads when it was announced at NAMM as part of the Parallel Universe Series. With its oddball shape and combination of many Fender guitar design elements, the Meteora is truly new and refreshing.
Let’s hope a Mexican made version is in the works.

PRS Europe has announced two new ltd ed models in their SE Acoustic line.
The A270 features figured koa body while the A265 has book-matched Pau Ferro. Both models are spruce-top and come equipped with Fishman GT1 pickups.
These guitars should give the lower end Taylors a run for money based on specs and pricing.
