Full, Lush Voice

The PRS SE T40E pairs ovangkol back and sides with a solid spruce top for full, lush tone. When matched with PRS hybrid“X”/Classical bracing, which allows the top to freely vibrate, the SE T40E’s voice projects with breathtaking volume and delicate nuance. The Tonare Grand body shape delivers a familiar feel and a thunderous tone, well suited for picking and fingerstyle playing.

Plugged in, the PRS-Voiced Fishman Sonitone pickup system delivers dynamic, organic tone and allows players to easily take this guitar from rehearsal to the stage. This electronics system features an undersaddle pickup and soundhole mounted preamp with easy-to-access volume and tone controls.

Additional high-quality features include a solid spruce top, ebony fretboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, as well as PRS trademark bird inlays and headstock design. Ships with a high-quality hardshell case.

“It produces a different frequency than the high end of maple back and sides, one that may further complement the sibilance of a vocalist – making the T40E perhaps the optimal choice for a singer-songwriter.”

- American Songwriter

"The T40E is an expressive, dynamic instrument with outstanding bass-to-treble balance that’s powerful, sweet, and rich thanks to its ingenious combination of X-bracing and classical fan-style bracing. The cathedral reverb-like resonance is stunning. This model is by far the best fingerstyle instrument I’ve played in the sub-$1,000 price range, and it even outshines guitars I’ve played costing three to six times as much."
