The PRS S2 Vela Electric Guitar – Coming Soon to Ear Craft Music!
The PRS S2 Vela Electric Guitar is an exciting new offering from Paul Reed Smith Guitars. It is a departure from the PRS tradition, offering a new bridge type and asymmetrical body shape reminiscent of guitars from the 1960s with Paul’s contemporary interpretation. This guitar is constructed with beveled, all mahogany body and neck with a rosewood fingerboard. Its 25″ scale and 22 fret pattern regular neck will be very familiar to players who have already sampled the S2 line, such as the Starla, Custom 22, Singlecut, and Mira. The real deviation is the bridge and pickup choices, which will offer the same great PRS play-ability and reliability with a big shift in tone and vibe.
Let’s start with the bridge. The PRS S2 Vela features a “Plate-Style” Bridge with two brass saddles. Compared with the fixed bridge and tremolo models normally associated with the Custom 24 or Singlecut models, this bridge will be brighter and twangier, offering a tone closer to a guitar that ends in “caster.” The pickups feature a Starla humbucker with a coil tap and a type “D” singlecoil in the neck. The guitar is designed to sound bright and punchy with a lot of tonal flexibility for players of any style, especially country and indie rock. Check out the full story at the PRS Website Here.
With great sustain and intonation, the PRS S2 Vela is ready to fill its role in the PRS lineup and will be a great addition to any guitar players setup, wither on stage or in a studio. Check it out at Ear Craft Music soon, we will be getting the Seafoam Green and Vintage Mahogany models in first. We are also accepting pre-orders, so contact us and let us know what you want to get!
