Paul Reed Smith

PRS S2 Satin Vela Semi-Hollow Vintage Cherry

SKU: 1-S2045441

The Semi-Hollow version of the most stubborn Paul Reed Smith model. In a beautiful, matte finish.

Very cool S2 Vela from Paul Reed Smith in a matte Vintage Cherry color. Extremely lightweight and packed with tonal options. Plays as light as a feather and can rightly be called an inspiration machine. And a great price, of course!

Where many other guitar brands stand still, PRS always continues to innovate. Of course, with the resurgence of offset guitars, PRS couldn't stay behind. The result: the PRS S2 Vela. We've had this guitar in many colors and configurations, but these semi-hollows are definitely among our favorites. The Vela is perfect for guitars that want the build quality and reliability of PRS, but with a fresh new look. PRS describes the Vela as elegant and daring, and we certainly agree. In the bridge position we find a lively Starla humbucker, which can also be switched to single coil. In the neck position we find a Type-D single-coil. This not only looks quirky, but also produces a unique sound. The bridge of this PRS Vela also stands out. They are actually two large saddles, each carrying three strings. The sound of this bridge is nice and biting and incredibly resonant, so that the Vela will not only stand out visually, but also sonically.
