OVERVIEW

A vintage-inspired guitar with loads of personality and tonal textures.

The 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 PRS-Designed Type-D Singlecoil in the neck which 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.

Anchoring this guitar is a 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, PRSs new plate-style bridge features brass saddles and an aluminum plate for maximum tonal sustain.

Includes gig bag.

    Comments about PRS S2 Vela Bird Inlays Electric Guitar:

    Got the opportunity to play one of these for around an hour or so earlier this year at the PRS booth at the SeaTac Guitar Show, and even with the limited time I had with the guitar, I can say it's arguably my favorite PRS model. It's one of the only guitars I feel comfortable with reviewing without owning it.

    As far as looks and feel go, it's near perfect in my opinion. Very comfortable to play, great string action, basically what you would expect from this quality of a guitar.

    As far as sound goes, the Vela doesn't disappoint in that regard either. It sounds incredible both clean and dirty. I'm a really big fan of the pickups used, they allow a lot of versatility, and you can easily use this guitar for any genre.

    Bottom line, I definitely plan on purchasing a Vela in the near future. It outperforms a lot of guitars in the same price range, and I highly recommend it if you have any doubts.
