The design of our Concert models was inspired by vintage guitars from the 1940's. The body size sits nicely in between our Mini and OM models.

It is a smaller full size guitar great for blues, country, folk and finger style playing.

The classic style of a dreadnought with the beautiful tone and innovative design of a Pratley acoustic.

Pratley acoustic guitars are a beautiful representation of Australian craftsmanship and design. The use of premium native Australian tone-woods is a key ingredient in forming the aesthetic appeal and unique voice. 

Designed to be elegant yet robust, Pratley acoustic guitars are chosen by some of Australia's finest musicians. 

 

Pratley Premier series is a very well refined and executed acoustic with Classic Style. Available with either Maple Silkwood or Blackwood back and sides the Premier features a lovely AAA Qld Blue Fig Soundboard. The Fig soundboard is a beautiful Australian native that was pioneered by Martin Pratley in the mid to late 2000's. It has a sweet rounded finish to notes with a good mid range presence and some natural compression. It can be thought of as fitting in somewhere between a Spruce or Bunya toped guitar and a Blackwood or Koa toped guitar.

Introducing the Pratley SH series semi-hollow electric guitars. A captivating blend of exquisite craftsmanship and superior tonal performance. They are meticulously handcrafted using the finest Australian tone-woods. Built in our Australian factory, these are premium vintage constructed electric guitars. The solid sides are steam bent and attached to the top and back with kerfed linings. The top and back are book matched sets of solid premium tone-wood.

Equipped with the renowned Seymour Duncan PhatCat P-90 set for SH90 models and the Seymour Duncan Seth Lover PAF Humbucker set for the SH22 models. These guitars deliver a rich palette of dynamic sounds whether you're seeking gritty blues tones or smooth jazz licks.

We choose to use Graphtech nuts, Gotoh Hardware, DiMarzio pots, switches & jack sockets.

The SH line of semi-hollow electric guitars are finished with premium semi-gloss Nitro lacquer which not only enhances the guitar's aesthetics but also allows the wood to resonate freely for exceptional tone.

 

The SL Series combines the beautiful tone of a Solid Bunya soundboard with the price of Layered veneer back. Although this is the entry level to Pratley acoustic guitars we have stayed true to our 3 major design principles of Tone, Feel and simple elegant aesthetics.

The Stage model body is a mid-size shape that fits in between the concert models and the Mini OM models. 

We are always proud to use sustainable Australian native tone-woods and the SL series continues that tradition. The neck is plantation Victorian Ash which has great strength to weight and stability. The back & sides are made in Australia from high quality Australian tone-wood veneers and the soundboard is 'A' grade QLD Bunya.
