Rush: Alex Lifeson launches signature Thinline acoustic guitar

Alex Lifeson of Rush has launched his new signature Thinline acoustic guitar in association with PRS Guitars.

The SE Alex Lifeson Thinline acoustic is a road-worthy guitar for players in need of a stage and studio-ready instrument.

Carrying over its unique appointments from the Private Stock Alex Lifeson acoustic, this model features a thinner body depth than PRS’s standard Angelus model and the “Birds in Flight” inlay design.

"I was very pleased when PRS presented me with my SE Angelus acoustic, a beautiful guitar of stunning quality,” says Lifeson. “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."

Rush recently announced North American dates that will see the band hit 34 cities across the continent this summer on their 40th anniversary R40 tour, with shows beginning May 8 in Tulsa, OK.

The 2015 tour is named after Rush’s 40th anniversary box set, “R40.”
