OVERVIEW

Classic PRS playability and reliability at a new price point.

With an understated, refined appearance, instant comfort and playability, and a voice that is familiar and captivating, the vintage-inspired S2 Mira is a guitar you won't want to put down.

Its all-mahogany body and asymmetrical, beveled top give the S2 Mira much of its explosive tone. And while not a super high output guitar, the S2 Mira can be overdriven into well-rounded, organic rock tones without sacrificing the punch or clarity found in higher-output guitars (or even active pickups). The bridge pickup is rich with some sparkle and substantial but tight low end, while the neck pickup is a little darker providing great balance and vintage tones.

The S2 Story
The PRS S2 Series offers the fit, finish, feel, and attention to detail of PRS craftsmanship in a straightforward design. Standing for "Stevensville 2," S2 Series instruments are made at the Maryland shop blending new design elements and manufacturing techniques with practiced quality control and workmanship to create reimagined, fresh guitars that reach a more affordable price for players.

The S2 Series is comprised of three models: the S2 Mira, S2 Starla, and S2 Custom 24. These models share several key features, including PRS S2 locking tuners, custom-wound pickups, PRS neck shapes, PRS S2 bridges as well as PRS fretwire, nuts, and double-action truss rods. The new asymmetrical, beveled body shape offers a vintage vibe, and the flatness of the top gives these guitars a big, resonant voice.

Whether the S2 Series means your first PRS or an addition to your arsenal, one thing is certain: each model in the PRS S2 Series is a solid American-made guitar that makes no sacrifice in playability or tone.

Features
The Woods
Wood is the foundation of a guitar's tone. If you sacrifice the foundation, there is little hope of achieving an exceptional instrument. Believing this, PRS have chosen the same traditional tonewoods that are used on PRS Core guitars, such as maple tops, mahogany backs and bodies, mahogany necks, and rosewood fretboards. While some of the design and construction methods used in the S2 Series (the neck blank's starting dimension across the Series and the S2 Custom's wood grade, for example) allowed PRS to use less expensive and more readily available woods, no compromise has been made to the tone or integrity of S2 instruments.

Necks
A guitar should be comfortable and feel familiar from the moment you pick it up, and the neck is paramount to that connection. PRS S2 instruments feature a 25" neck with scarf-joint construction and the Pattern Regular neck shape, which stems back to the PRS "Regular" neck shape found on guitars made in the late 1980s in the Virginia Avenue Annapolis shop.

On the PRS S2 series, the neck begins with a quartersawn mahogany neck blank. That blank is cut, the headstock is scarfed, and the heel is built up using a plain splice. (A scarf joint is made up of two pieces of wood that are cut at complementary angles and glued together. A plain splice is a joining of two pieces of wood in the same line). These construction methods allow us to start with a smaller amount of raw materials, and the increased glue surface area results in a very strong joint. This technique combined with a pre-radiused, pre-fretted fretboard result in a very efficient, cohesive manufacturing process that creates a durable, comfortable, playable neck.

Width of the fretboard at the nut: 1 21/32"
Width at the body: 2 1/4"
Neck depth at the nut: 27/32"

Finish
Finish should do three things: most importantly, it should enhance the tone of a guitar. It should also feel good to the player's touch, and it should look good. The finish used on the PRS S2 Series accomplishes these goals by featuring a polyester basecoat and an acrylic topcoat (reminiscent of the finish system used on PRS Core guitars for twenty years (before the introduction of V12)). PRS have updated the process of this finish system to allow S2 guitars to move through the finish hall smoothly and quickly while also requiring a thinner topcoat for optimal tone. This old-but-new finish maintains a hi-gloss, attractive aesthetic, and the translucent and opaque color options offer vintage and modern flavors that allow players to choose the look that fits them best.

Pickups & Electronics
PRS S2 Series proprietary pickups are built to exact specifications, including wire and coating materials, winds, and resistance. Whether harkening back to the original HFS and Vintage Bass pickups or designed to work with the unique tones of a Bigsby tailpiece, S2 pickups were designed to capture the distinct tonal character intended for each instrument in the series.

All of the models in the S2 Series feature a 3-way blade pickup switch with a master volume and a push/pull tone control. Coil-tap functionality adds versatility by allowing players to split the humbucking pickups into singlecoils, providing a vast array of tones. The jack assembly used on the S2 Series is the same jack as the Core line, providing a clean connection point to amplify your sound.

Tuners, Nuts & Bridges
The tone of a guitar is influenced by several factors: wood choice, body style, pickups, scale length, metals and other materials used, etc. Some of the most impactful components are those that directly affect the vibration of the strings: the tuners, the nut, and the bridge. This is because it is the strings' vibration that the pickups sense and that creates the sound wave the ear will ultimately hear.

The bridge is the anchor of the guitar. It is here that the vibration of the string is transferred into the body of the guitar, bringing out the inherent tone of the woods chosen. Each S2 instrument features a different bridge style. The S2 Mira features the same stoptail that is used on Core PRS instruments. PRS use an unplated bridge with brass studs. The S2 Starla features a time-tested Tune-o-matic bridge with a Bigsby B50 tailpiece. The S2 Custom features a PRS tremolo (the same bridge found on the SE line of guitars).

The nut also plays a critical part in the transfer of tone. The nut on S2 instruments is the same nut PRS use on the Core guitars. The nut is strong and long-lasting without "grabbing" the strings, and it is imbued with brass, a highly musical metal.

PRS S2 locking tuners are used across the S2 Series. These proprietary tuners are reminiscent of the "Phase II" tuners and follow many of Paul Smith's "tweaks," including a brass shaft and specially-configured internal construction. The locking mechanism itself is identical to the one used on the Core guitars, which helps the guitar stay in tune.

Whether using parts shared by the Core manufacturing line or newly-sourced proprietary parts, PRS always chose to use musical materials (such as brass) and avoid materials that deaden tone (like nylon washers), maximizing the guitars' overall resonance, musicality, and tone.

Other Appointments
The nut, jack assembly, fret wire, electronics knobs, and strings are all shared between Core and S2 instruments. It is long-lasting and is comfortable to play. The electronics' knobs are made in PRS' own proprietary mold, which results in a handsome and ergonomic design. As with all of solidbody guitars, PRS use 10-46 strings. S2 Series guitars come in a nylon gig bag to make heading out for your next show that much easier.

    Comments about PRS S2 Mira Electric Guitar:

    I have never been a PRS fanboy, but I needed a solid and versatile humbucker equipped guitar to round out my rig. After weighing my options and my finances the Mira met my needs. It is the most "in tune" guitar I have ever played. Open chords are in tune and thirds ring true all over the neck. Something a lot of guitars don't accomplish. The neck is not a fast neck, but it is very well constructed with impeccable fret work. I do like my fingerboards to be a little flatter than the Mira's, but I'm lucky in that I can adapt to necks of different sizes and radii.The pickups are good, but I will change them in time for subjective reasons. The bridge intonates very well even after a change of strings. However, it does cause the pick attack to be bright and ring too much. Some people like this, and at times I'm one of them. But, for some types of music it's something I fight. Overall, This is a well built American made guitar at a good price point.

    Comments about PRS S2 Mira Electric Guitar:

    Light weight, great workmanship, and the coil tapping setup reduces the number of guitars I will have to take to shows and sessions. Great tone, very easy player. Amazed it didn't come with a hard-shell case - I'm not fond of gig bags. Recording is cool with all the available tone options. I have struggled to find equipment that sounds like "me", but this axe is so adjustable it's no problem getting my signature tone. Very happy with my purchase.
