"PRS S2 Custom 24 from Zzounds!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have owned numerous guitars and included was an American made PRS years ago. Prior to this recent purchase of the S2, I purchased the new PRS SE about a year ago. I really wasn't expecting there to be that much difference between the two, but in terms of playability and sound - there is a huge difference!! The S2 is far superior!! Love Zzounds and their sales staff though there was one snag in the purchase... I asked if it came with a bag case (which I thought it did) but the salesperson didn't think so, so I purchased a mono case. When it shipped it came in a decent bag case and the mono case (which is outstanding) came in a separate box. No big deal as I would have wanted a better case for this guitar anyway.
