Top and back are curly maple and a lovely flame mahogany neck can be seen from stock photos. Wow.

The entire guitar (body, headstock and neck) is also bound with maple and abalone. The bling factor is definitely high on this one.

Pickups are 58/15 LT and the guitar has a rather unusual 24.594″ (hence the model code 594) scale.

Only 60 pieces made so expect to pay a premium to get one.

A coil split on the bridge humbucker via the push/pull tone knob enables up to 7 sounds on the guitar.

This should be popular with players who want the best of both worlds – single coil and humbucker tones.

2018SEAcousticBlogHeader

There are 6 models in total from the Angelus and Tonare Grande shapes. While these shapes are PRS proprietary, they should be similar to the GA shape, with the main difference being a cutaway in the Angelus models.
