“It’s an ironic thing to say about such a beautiful instrument but it becomes invisible- leaving the player to concentrate solely on the music- which is what it should be all about. The Tony McManus signature model is based on the Angelus model but with the PRS wide fingerboard and the Private Stock wood choices are pretty spectacular. The guitar is capable of going anywhere I’m capable of going musically. It works beautifully as a solo fingerstyle guitar but if I need to flatpick, it’ll go there too. It’ll accompany songs, tunes...whatever I need...tuned high and tuned low, gently caressed or driven hard.” – Tony McManus
Born in the PRS Maryland shop, PRS Acoustics are heirloom-quality instruments with remarkable tone and exquisite playability. A small team of experienced luthiers handcraft all Maryland-made PRS acoustics with passion and attention to detail. The Tony McManus acoustic comes standard with our customized pickup system. The PRS Acoustic pickup system is a proprietary, full band width Piezo pick up that is combined with a proprietary 18 volt custom-voiced preamp.
This is a marvelous fingerstyle guitar! The European spruce top is extra sensitive and has wonderful note separation with a nice, full voice. The Private Stock grade cocobolo has lovely bass response with plenty of focus and warmth.
