If by "trying to help" you mean like a drug dealer tries to help!
Anyone here who prefered the A50E over A40E? And why?
I really think you guys who have bought a new SE Angelus should post some vids
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!
Ordered the A55E in green today. I am such a sucker for anything green and quilt maple, so it had to be done.
And now I play the waiting game.....again!
Went to the Money Vortex in Atlanta this weekend (Righteous Guitars) and got to play a couple different SE's. I have to say that I'm really impressed with these new ones! There's one in particular that struck me, so I may have to go up after Christmas to rescue it if it's still there.
I received my A50E today. WOW!!! I was not prepared to be this impressed with an Asian acoustic. Just WOW!
I really don't see how Paul can sell this quality at this price AND include a really nice hard case. Thanks Paul!!!
Nice! That's great to hear. I've got a TX20E coming in a few days.
So I just went to a PRS road show and played several acoustics...walked out with the A60. What a wonderful guitar both in looks and sound. I will be selling my Taylor now. And ease of playing. I don't know what it is, neck, body, whatever but it is so comfortable. I love it!
