Meet The Model: PRS S2 Satins

Filed Under Electrics / S2 Series / Meet The Model

After months of research and development, play testing, and fine tuning, we are proud to present three S2 Satin models! Below you can meet the S2 Singlecut Satin, S2 Standard 24 Satin, and S2 Standard 22 Satin - starting at $999.

Each of these new satin models will be offered in Charcoal, McCarty Tobacco, Vintage Cherry, and Vintage Mahogany. These super thin satin nitro finishes not only feel great, but allow the mahogany to sing a warm, balanced tone.

/

For reference, the finish on a typical PRS Core or S2 guitar is 9-10 mils thick, our new satin finishes are about 1 mil thick - a tenth of the thickness of our already super-thin finish offerings. But what does this mean for your tone? PRS recording artist, Bryan Ewald noticed this, “There’s almost nothing choking the wood, so it produces an even more resonant guitar that sustains like crazy!”

For players looking for something different than our standard high-gloss neck feel, the S2 Satin’s have a great natural, worn-in comfort.

Now let’s meet the models.

S2 SINGLECUT SATIN

Natural, Warm, and Classic

/

As versatile as it is classic, the S2 Singlecut Satin will give you quick access to punchy humbucker tones and crisp single-coil sounds with the pull of its two push/pull tone knobs. The modern guitarist needs options, and the S2 Singlecut has you covered.

Specs: Asymmetric bevel-cut solid mahogany body, 25” scale length, 22 fret mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, dot inlays, S2 locking tuners, nickel hardware, PRS stoptail

S2 STANDARD 24 SATIN

A Classic Refinished

/

With as much vintage vibe as Paul Reed Smith’s original PRS Standard from 1987, the new S2 Standard 24 Satin is a fresh approach to a timeless classic. Let the HFS and Vintage Bass pickups move through you, you won’t be dissapointed.

Specs: Asymmetric bevel-cut solid mahogany body, 25” scale length, 24 fret mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, dot inlays, S2 locking tuners, nickel hardware, PRS S2 tremolo

S2 STANDARD 22 SATIN

Stripped-down Look, Powerful Tone

/

Even unplugged, the S2 Standard 22 has a resonance that will surprise you. The PRS #7 Treble & Bass pickups compliment the resonance of the instrument and will also compliment whatever genre you feel like playing at tonight’s gig: high gain punk and metal, to warm, bass blues.

Specs: Asymmetric bevel-cut solid mahogany body, 25” scale length, 22 fret mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, dot inlays, S2 locking tuners, nickel hardware, PRS S2 tremolo

Electronics: PRS S2 #7 treble and bass pickups, volume and push/pull tone control with 3-way blade switch

Is there a polish suitable to give good protection on my PRS S2 STANDARD 24 against scratches etc.
Kyle January 06, 2017 - 10:17pm
Wow! I would like to see satin Mira hollow body, satin S2 custom 24, and satin acoustic guitars!

I'm on my way to ordering an S2 Singlecut thanks to my sale eng. at Sweetwater and the video I watch.

The S2 Singlecut Satin has become one of my favorites! The finish is flawless, tone is outstanding & build quality is on par with core models. Swapped the pickups with USA #7 models & wow....This guitar is a monster!!
Matt May 25, 2016 - 7:38pm
I will buy a Satin Vela if you guys release one.
JMS May 10, 2016 - 2:41pm
Really love the Vela...sounds great as it is. Already great sustain without satin. Would like to try one of these satin S2's though. Also, why are dots not an option on ALL models of PRS ? Would it be that complicated ? Birds look very nice, but some of us are dot men.
Crlos April 20, 2016 - 10:36pm
I hope they release a satin standard 24 with bird inlays!
John April 20, 2016 - 8:11am
Please release Vela S2 Satin, Mira S2 Satin, Angelus S2 Satin with bird inlays! Why did you guys decide to remove birds on satin models? Cheaper SE guitars come with birds... Please add more S2 Satin guitars with birds! We would appreciate S2 signature models too...
Rasheed McCallum April 14, 2016 - 6:13pm
Really Really wish these would come with bird inlays
BCW February 17, 2016 - 3:35am
I agree with Vinz. An S2 with a pattern thin neck Custiom24 In gloss black with nickle covered pickups. Or satin black, satin neck for sure though!!!

I am interested in a swamp ash special with the HSH pickup configuration
Bill January 14, 2016 - 5:40pm
Would love to order one, but none of the dealers in my area even know about the satin models.
Andrew January 12, 2016 - 9:41am
lose the pickguard... or redesign it. the satin finish is beautiful and here you have more than half of your front side covered in plastic.
Rich Shoemaker December 28, 2015 - 11:27am
I went to my local dealer to buy a 30th Anniversary SE Custom 24, beautiful glossy flamed maple finish, the birds on the fretboard, it was beautiful, but then I saw the S2 Standard 24 Satin hanging on the wall. I played both, and it was no contest... The S2 Satin Standard 24 came home with me. No birds, no bling, but possibly the most beautiful sounding and playing guitar I've ever laid hands upon. I don't use tremolo, so I decked the bridge, adjusted the action and intonation, and it's as good as a fixed bridge... no issues with changing tunings either.
Cory Plowman December 13, 2015 - 2:30pm
I have played on multiple satin S2s, I am lucky enough to work for a PRS dealer, and every one of them have been fantastic. I was skeptical when I heard about an American PRS for $999, but its a home-run for Paul Reed.
CruzNPlayer December 13, 2015 - 12:33pm
So glad PRS is going this direction! I would love for a piezo option or version. It's a shame you can only get that in the high-end models. Visually, I do have one nit. The mix of chrome plated and brass plated parts is cheap looking. Matching HW makes for a more refined aesthetic.
Basil December 06, 2015 - 11:23pm
I wish S2's were available with Floyd Rose. Anyone know if that's gonna happen?
Billy Icaza November 29, 2015 - 4:12pm
Beautiful and resonant guitars
Denver Bilyeu November 22, 2015 - 11:47pm
Would really love a hss option on the standard 22 that would the perfect guitar for me
Ryan November 20, 2015 - 1:32am
Just ordered the Satin Standard 22 in Charcoal. I have been a PRS fan for awhile. The Vela was my first S2 PRS. I was a little worried it would not meet my expectations compared to my custom PRS stuff. I was wrong. The Vela blew me away. Since then I have gotten a Singlecut Standard as well as just ordered a Satin 22 as well as a S2 Semi Hollow 22. Thanks PRS for always reinventing yourself. I would like to see a trem option on the Vela and also on the Singlecut S2 models. The original Singlecut Trem is seeing a resurgence and it was probably one of the most versatile guitars PRS ever made.
Michael Lawrence November 19, 2015 - 4:27pm
c'mon, put a damn trem on the single-cut! & the mannmade 2020 classic 2-post one, seriously...
Steven Dombroski November 19, 2015 - 4:05pm
When can we expect PRS to add the stoptail or hard tail bridge options to the 24 fret models as a standard option and not a limited offer? For those of us that use multiple tunings, trem models don't work well when you drop tunings from song to song in a live environment.
