Paul Reed Smith S2 Vela with Bird Inlays

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 Single coil in the neck that gives the Vela some noteworthy bite. The coil-tap on the tone control allows the bridge pickup to split to single coils, providing a balanced tone that will cut through the mix with style.

Hear the S2 Vela (and the S2 Custom 24) through the PRS Archon 50 combo amp in our exclusive demo:


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.

Explore all the different tones the S2 Vela can deliver in this video from PRS:

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The fact about this guitar"
Overall: Is that it's beyond good! I chose this one over something pricier. I wasn't sold on how it looked but I always watch a billion reviews before buying something. This guitar sold itself. Even the most he at reviewers didn't have much bad to say about it. The tone is very, very clear. The humbucker can do a lot of sounds and when you split it it's got a great vintage sound. Plenty of mid range and not as bright as my strats and teles. I'd say if you play everything but the heaviest of metal this one guitar can do it. It sings and it will scream! Enough typing got to get back to playing it.
Style of Music: Rock jazz blues gospel and hard rock

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Amazing guitar great value "
Overall: I love playing this guitar. The tone is so clean and pure. It's a very light guitar. The finish on the neck feels great under my hand. My only complaint is that when I'm playing and my fingers get a little sweaty it's difficult to pull up on the push/pull knob. This guitar is a great guitar for the value. I wish it had a hard case, but it comes with a truss rod adjustment wrench, and Allen wrenches for the bridge.
