Vernon Reid has always demanded electric guitars that offer more sonic control than many of his contemporaries. With this S2 VR Vela, PRS proudly took on the challenge of supplying him with a superb instrument that showcases his discriminating style. Onboard you'll find two of PRS's powerful HFS humbucking pickups generating thick, heavy tones. Vernon's custom V-shape neck contour enables fleet-fingered performance. And the S2 VR Vela's 1000 series Floyd Rose tremolo has created quite a buzz among guitarists at Hiendguitar. But this guitar is only available for a limited time, so make one your own today!
PRS continues moving their legacy ahead with this popular take on their classic body design. The S2 VR Vela and its offset, contoured Mahogany body still sing with PRS's familiar fat and clear tone. But it seems to hug your body in a wonderfully new ergonomic fashion. And it does it all while looking extremely attractive. If you're looking for a guitar with its own look, or you're already a die-hard PRS devotee who's just looking for a new twist, the S2 VR Vela is for you.
The HFS humbucking pickups in the Paul Reed Smith S2 VR Vela are descended from some of the most popular high-output pickups in the company's illustrious line. Characterized by a fat tone that slams the front end of your amplifier, the HFS pickups found in both the neck and bridge position pull every bit of harmonics and sustain from your rig. But unlike some high-output designs, the HFS humbuckers are still extremely touch sensitive, allowing you to elicit all sorts of beautiful tones from your guitar.
Vernon Reid uses pitch manipulation to great effect. That's why PRS loaded the S2 VR Vela with a Floyd Rose 1000 series tremolo bridge. A remake of the original Floyd Rose blade tremolo, this double-locking design offers new levels of self expression, not previously available on the Vela platform. The Floyd Rose 1000 series tremolo is just one more way the S2 VR Vela is one of the most capable guitars in the Paul Reed Smith lineup.
