The Italian word tonare means “to thunder,” while angelus is Latin for, of course, “angelic.” Combine them, and you get a good idea what these new acoustics from PRS Guitars sound like. Nearly four years of design and prototyping with acoustic artist Ricky Skaggs and luthier Steve Fischer have culminated in the Angelus Cutaway and the Tonare Grand models, the company’s first acoustic series to be manufactured at its Stevensville, Maryland, facility.
These newly designed PRS acoustic models come standard with features that are typically considered upgrades in acoustic craftsmanship, including German spruce tops, beautiful dark rosewood (or curly mahogany) backs and sides, rare Peruvian mahogany necks, red spruce and mahogany bracing, exotic inlays and rosettes, and thin shatter-hard all-nitro finishes. Options include Celtic-knot rosettes and inlays, Adirondack red spruce tops, ebony fretboards and bridges, and a proprietary pickup system that rivals the tone of vintage condenser microphones. A proprietary, hybrid X-bracing pattern maximizes volume and provides a musical balance between the bass, midrange and high end, while the high-strength modulus graphite truss rod enhances sonic vibration. Because the Angelus and Tonare acoustics are handmade, each has its own unique tone to give you your own slice of heaven.
