Great Guitar, just change the strings!
Tharkimaa, 13.05.2020
I got it a couple of months ago, and was impressed by the mids and the highs. It's a really good deal compared to Taylor's or Martin's offerings at around EUR 200 more. The action is set very well out of the box and the hardware holds tuning for a long time.

One of the strings was kinda bent around the sound hole so I finally decided to change the strings. What a huge difference! The sound has changed completely, there's better projection and the bass shines through in every chord.

The DI sounds the way all DI sound, scratchy and thin, but some gentle overdrive with the bass pushed and reverb fixed that really quick.

One tip- For my personal preference, the frets are a bit thin and unpolished. I took some time to polish them and set up the guitar the way I like, and it made the final 10% of the difference. Excellent guitar, can only recommend!

Guitar speaks for it self
Pleased Costumer, 20.01.2020
It's a really great guitar, especially for its price: sounds awesome, it fills up the room; when you dial tone all the way up DI sounds so crispy, clear and airy - I love it. It's also built nicely, feels comfortable in hands, quite easy to reach 12-14 fret region, the only thing that bothers me a little bit is the difficulty of placing a strap with a self-locking mechanism because the heel/neck joint is in the way. Other than that I sincerely highly recommend buying this one, you won't regret it. Now it's my main guitar for gigs and studio sessions.
Fun fact: as soon as I bought this guitar, a friend of mine also bought it in a couple of weeks because of how much he liked mine.

Tom5474, 17.12.2018
I use a guitar to unwind; I don't gig or anything like that. I play at the occasional work or family gathering and I'm happy at that. I had a Fender acoustic but was unhappy and having to re-tune every time I put on or took off a capo. I decided to go for a really good guitar and, after some research, plumped for the PRS SE AX20E.
The guitar arrived on time as promised. The sound out of the box was beautiful. The case provided was well built, solid and plush. I wasn't used to the strings (I have played nothing but Ernie Ball strings in 30 years!) but the tone and responsiveness form the PRS was excellent. I plugged the guitar into a small PA and the sound was even better. I am looking forward to playing this guitar for many years.
So, any cons? The only downside is that there is no onboard tuner. I was very used to that with the (now departed) Fender. This is a very small price to pay for the gorgeous tone from this instrument.
One other thing. The price dropped after I bought the guitar, but before it was delivered. I emailed Thomann to say I was disappointed, but they refunded me the difference immediately without question. This was wonderful customer service.
In summary, this is a beautiful, warm-sounding guitar, acoustic or plugged in, and Thomann proved excellent to deal with from a delivery and customer service point of view.
Peace out.

Better than expected
Mads Christian, 26.01.2020
I had way to high expectations, and somehow it is better than expected.

I can honestly not think of anything to improve on this guitar within this price range. Sound is great, quality is fantastic and the features are everything you need.
