PRS's First Offset Body Design

PRS proudly introduces their new S2 Vela solidbody electric guitar. Maintaining the high-level of workmanship the company is known for, PRS has changed their recipe for the new vintage-inspired Vela. Featuring a Starla treble humbucking pickup with coil-tap and a new Type-D single-coil bass pickup, the S2 Vela aims to rock, cut, and jangle with the best of them. PRS also added a new plate-style bridge with two intonation-compensated brass saddles, delivering the classic tone and visual appeal that Sweetwater guitarists love.

Asymmetrical body design

PRS looks to move their legacy ahead with a new take on their classic body design. Enter the S2 Vela and its offset, contoured Mahogany body. 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, this guitar is for you!

PRS Starla humbucker and Type-D single-coil pickups with coil-tap

The Vela is a killer tool to add to your arsenal of PRS tonal weapons. The Starla humbucker gives you the sweet sound that PRS is known for, including the coil-tap capability to take you into some serious jangle territory. The brand-new Type-D single-coil in the neck position harkens back to some of the greatest tones of the 1950s. With all the versatility you could ask for, the PRS S2 Vela delivers.

Brand new PRS plate-style bridge with brass saddles

For something completely different, PRS unveils their new plate-style bridge with two adjustable brass string saddles, manufactured for precise intonation. Being reminiscint of Paul Reed Smith's early designs, the bridge is a total departure from PRS's current offerings. The Vela's new bridge design will give you all the twang, sustain, and clarity you're after
