    OK, so has anyone played the three new models back-to-back-to-back? or at least compared the A50E to other known guitars?

    I have been playing my Taylor (200 series) recently, because it is a bit louder, and I need to be accustomed to the feel enough for some all-acoustic gigs coming up. I happened to pick up my SE Angelus Custom last night just to quickly work through one of my recent songs (I kept forgetting a lyric), and the PRS neck was so wonderful to play!

    As I've explained previously, I don't play the PRS for all-acoustic gigs because the RW body-based sound for lead breaks tends to get drowned out by the other guitarist - the Taylor stands out better (it has a maple body and neck, spruce top).

    The new A50E seems to match what I would want, but I am hesitant to just buy without hearing or reading about relative "loudness" and projection.

    Anyone have any comments in that direction?

    So I had written the above post, but not actually hit "post" yet. I did hit post just now, to wrap up the thought.

    But, while the post lingered as a draft, I thought, hey let's look to see if any available to play locally. Nope. Oh well.

    Then I thought, what's on Reverb? Ooh, a listing at Dave's for a T50E - I wonder if that would be an option - the lack of cutway should help a tiny bit too...

    Hmm, but I don't want to buy without comparing...let me call, maybe they can play them and compare relative loudness? oooh, they will! OK, compare T50E to A40E (no A50E in store...) - kinda the same, but T50E is a bit "brighter", better for lead work, though the A40E had a nice sound for rhythm stuff. Hmm, OK, how about compare to a used SE Angelus Custom SE? Oh, much different - the T50E is much louder, and much more audible for leads!

    So...incoming T50E!
