(PRESS RELEASE): PRS Guitars is pleased to continue its relationship with Alex Lifeson of Rush with the announcement of an all-new SE thinline acoustic signature model. Carrying over its unique appointments from the Private Stock Alex Lifeson acoustic, the new PRS SE Alex Lifeson Thinline model features a thinner body depth than the standard Angelus model and PRS’s distinctive “Birds in Flight” inlay design.

As with all SE Series guitars, the Alex Lifeson Thinline acoustic is characterised by exemplary build quality and represents great value. The guitar’s thinner body provides excellent comfort – and real on-stage usability – and boasts PRS’s Hybrid X/Classical bracing pattern, which contributes a resonance and warmth not found in some thinline models. The addition of an undersaddle pickup with both volume and tone controls also gives delivers a warm acoustic tone when amplified.

"I was very pleased when PRS presented me with my SE Angelus acoustic, a beautiful guitar of stunning quality.  It was in response to the challenge of building a guitar that shared the integrity and attention to detail that the Alex Lifeson Private Stock Angelus possesses in a package more broadly accessible.  The SE Alex Lifeson Thinline is that model. Carefully selected materials, expert craftsmanship and a smart approach to concept resulted in a guitar that is beautiful to look at and rewarding to play." - Alex Lifeson

The announcement of Lifeson’s new PRS SE signature guitar is timed to coincide with Rush’s R40 LIVE 40th Anniversary Tour, which will be visiting 34 cities throughout North Americathis summer beginning May 8 in Tulsa, OK and finishing August 1 in Los Angeles, CA. For a complete listing of dates, visit and use #R40 to follow the tour.

The PRS SE Alex Lifeson Thinline acoustic has a retail price of £889 / €1279 and will be available in Europe from early May 2015.
