There's a lot of prestige riding on the name Paul Reed Smith, but that doesn't mean you need a second mortgage or a crowdfunding campaign to get your hands on a PRS guitar. The S2 series is designed to offer a good balance for the everyday working musician or hobby player, with a range of instruments delivering impressive bang for your buck. PRS S2 guitars have the craftsmanship and quality you expect from PRS, without the sticker shock. And it's a great lineup that features classic PRS models like the Custom 22, Standard 24, Mira and Singlecut in a variety of styles, including semi-hollow variants for those of us who like an edge of acoustic depth in our sound.
But which of the PRS S2 guitars is the best fit for you? That's a question only you can answer! Start by taking a look through the options, and use the filters in the sidebar to narrow them down based on the specific features you're looking for. Then, think about the sort of tone and stage presence you like. Would you prefer the classic look, crystal clarity and warm midrange of the PRS S2 Custom 22 Electric Guitar? Or maybe the incredible playability, smoky harmonics and vintage vibe of the S2 Mira Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar? How about the refined, all-mahogany construction of the S2 Singlecut Electric Guitar?
There's no right or wrong answer; it all comes down to what you're looking for in an instrument. Everything from the finish to the neck profile to the pickup configuration, tonewoods and body shape are a matter of personal preference, so when you're looking through the selection of PRS S2 guitars, don't ask yourself which one is the best - instead, ask which one is the best for you. It might come down to the simplest of differences, so keep your mind open and picture yourself playing each model you look at. When you like the mental image you're seeing, you'll know you've got a contender on your hands.
