Gear Finds: Acoustic Edition 2022

Check here for some of the latest and greatest acoustics in 2022!


SE P20

PRS Guitars
$549

The PRS SE P20 is a parlor-sized acoustic with a
big voice. Boasting traditional parlor features
like sweet, midrange tone, historic vibe, and easy
portability, the PRS SE P20 also brings a unique
voice to players. The PRS hybrid “X”/Classical
bracing locks down the back and sides while
allowing the top to freely vibrate, allowing the
PRS SE P20 to project with even, bold tone, while
the all-mahogany construction provides an organic
warmth to the guitar. Its smaller size keeps
playing fun and comfortable for hours, so whether
writing, recording, or performing the P20 is sure
to impress.

Available in three satin finishes with herringbone
rosettes and accents, PRS SE Parlor acoustics look
as good as they sound. Other high-quality features
include a solid mahogany top, ebony fretboard and
bridge, bone nut and saddle, as well as PRS
trademark bird inlays and headstock design.

UKC100 and UKS100

Ibanez
$119.99

The UKC100 and UKS100 are concert and soprano-sized ukuleles, both featuring a side sound port for accurate, natural acoustic tone. These Ukuleles also feature creative build elements that deliver major improvements in tone and playability. They both feature a neck joint at the 14th fret rather than the 12th, which offers significant benefits in terms of higher fret access. This design modification also allows the bridge to be positioned more towards the center of the instrument, producing improved volume and tone. Taller frets afford a faster and more accurate playing experience, and a reshaped, more rounded neck heel greatly improves playing comfort. The top, back, and sides of the instruments are made of Sapele, while the neck is a single piece of Okoume. The fretboard and bridge are made of Purpleheart, and each has an open-pore finish for better acoustic resonance and projection.

Natura G550RCEL

Left-Handed Guitarists: mid-priced acoustic-electric with an Ergonomic Armrest seeking partner to make beautiful music.

“Wow, the armrest really helps keep from cutting off blood circulation when I’m practicing and feels like I’m playing a smaller instrument. Responds nicely both to some intimate playing, and has nice character when you hit it a little hard; it responds with a good full low end and is still crisp and clear.” ~ Sean Harkness, NYC

The NATURA G550RCEL is a Left-handed acoustic-electric featuring an Ergonomic Armrest for comfort. The G550RCEL is a solid Spruce top Grand Auditorium Cutaway with weight reducing Low-Mass bracing. It has a voice that is focused and harmonically complex and suitable for left-handed players looking for the volume of a full-sized instrument and the comfort of a smaller body. A Glass-fibre reinforced neck ensures a lifetime of neck stability.
