Attractive asymmetrical body design
PRS looks to move their legacy ahead with a modern take on a classic body design. Enter the Satin S2 Vela and its offset, contoured mahogany body. If you're looking for a guitar with its own look, or you're already a die-hard PRS devotee who's just looking for a new twist, this guitar is for you. The guitarists here have found the Satin S2 Vela to be a comfortable fit for classic rock, alternative rock, modern country, and a bevy of other musical styles.
Versatile Starla humbucker and Type-D single-coil pickup combination
The PRS Satin S2 Vela is a killer tool to add to your arsenal of tonal weapons. Its Starla bridge humbucker gives you the sweet sound that PRS is known for, including coil-tap capability that takes you into some serious jangle territory. The Type-D single-coil pickup in the neck position harkens back to some of the greatest tones of the 1950s. The Satin S2 Vela delivers all of the versatility you could ask for.
PRS plate-style bridge with brass saddles
For something completely different, you’ll appreciate PRS’s plate-style bridge with two compensated brass string saddles, manufactured for precise intonation. Being reminiscent of Paul Reed Smith's early designs, the bridge is a total departure from PRS's current offerings. The Vela's bridge design will give you all the twang, sustain, and clarity you're after — and then some.
