Description

After three years of experimentation and trial and error between Martin Simpson and PRS, the model before you now was born. Cocobolo back and sides paired with a pale Adirondack Spruce top, wider fretboard for fingerstyle finesse, and a 25.25 inch scale for easy playability and added warmth in the mids. This PRS plays smoothly, and the voice is characterized by a roundness and richness that really fills out your fingerstyle arrangements. Taking it down into DADGAD, the Martin Simpson Signature remained clear and defined, and we love how individual notes retained that definition even if played softly.
The PRS Acoustic System is an easy-to-use pickup with a hardwired volume knob just under the lip of the soundhole. Wrapped up in an Ameritage hardshell case, our 2011 Martin Simpson Angelus is protected in fine style for those rare moments when you won’t have the guitar in hand.

Martin Simpson was one of the inspirations behind me starting Dream Guitars to begin with. With his PRS Signature model, he requested a wonderful set of specs to make a guitar that can cover a lot of ground like he does in his playing. You can play this one sweetly, and you can also hit it hard and it responds well. Very beautiful from top to bottom, and PRS always has top-notch woods. A real beauty!
