A vintage-inspired guitar with loads of personality and tonal textures, the PRS S2 Vela continues in the style of the Mira and Starla models. The Vela boasts a new offset body shape that is at once elegant and edgy. Its pickguard loaded electronics feature a PRS-Designed Starla pickup in the bridge, providing a bright, punky tone, and the new PRS-Designed Type-D Singlecoil in the neck that gives the Vela some noteworthy bite. The coil-tap on the tone control allows the bridge pickup to split to singlecoils, providing a balanced tone that will cut through the mix with style. Anchoring this guitar is a new PRS plate-style bridge with two saddles that were designed to compensate for intonation. This bridge harkens back to Paul’s early designs and traditional bass plate-style bridges, but is top-loading for easy restringing.
Like the bridge found on Paul’s Guitar and some Private Stock models, PRS’s new plate-style bridge features brass saddles and an aluminum plate for maximum tonal sustain.The PRS S2 Vela features an all-mahogany body and asymmetrical, beveled top with a Mahi Blue finish, 25" scale mahogany neck with a Pattern Regular neck profile, 22 fret rosewood fretboard, Dot inlays, PRS plate-style bridge with brass saddles and aluminum plate, PRS-Designed Starla bridge pickup, PRS-Designed Type-D Singlecoil neck pickup, volume and coil-tapping tone control with a 3-way toggle pickup switch and gig bag.
