The PRS S2 Vela is known for its sweeping offset body and vintage design appointments. Its H/S pickup configuration and classic two-saddle bridge strike the balance between bark and bite. Add a semi-hollow body to the mix and you’ve unlocked a whole new tonal palette; introducing the S2 Vela Semi-Hollow.

Body & Neck

Concerning tonewoods, it’s familiar territory for PRS. Ain’t broke, don’t fix – Mahogany is used for both the body and the neck. Hefty low-end and warm sustain is the aim of the game, in this case perfectly complemented by semi-hollow resonance.

PRS’ trademark Pattern Regular neck profile offers something familiar and balanced. Not too thick, not too heavy, but really allowing those notes to ring true from headstock to bridge. A Rosewood fretboard adds a little more attack and warmth to the mix, with subtle dot inlays for an understated look.

Hardware & Electronics

The PRS plate-style bridge holds two brass saddles specifically designed for great sustain and perfect intonation. Aesthetically, it’s a nod to some of the earliest electric guitar designs on the consumer market. The unique curved Vela pickguard hosts volume and push-pull tone with a 3-way pickup switch.

In the bridge, you've got a PRS-designed Starla, offering a dynamic, crystalline tone that cuts through any mix. The neck features a PRS Type D singlecoil, again with plenty of bite on tap. Coupled with the Mahogany/Rosewood warmth and semi-hollow design, the tones on offer here are really quite special.
