    I DO NOT need anymore PRSi, but this blows me away. I may have to try one...I hope it's just one.

    Seriously, I don't know how they can produce a set-neck, US- built guitar for that. BIG kudos for making an affordable American guitar.

    Oh hell!
    That's perfect. I've been looking for a good candidate for a Floyd Rose and the S2 Custom 24 nails it. I'm sold.

    So will the regular "Core" line Miras and Starlas still be offered?

    A lot cheaper than the normal USA guitars but a fair bit more than the SE range and I'm unclear exactly how they're different for the extra money.

    S2 custom 24 in Gray Black + Metal pickup would be a badass metal guitar!

    I'm pretty sure the S2 series will be made w/ African mahogany, just like the other USAs. The SEs use the same Asian mahogany that every other import is made of.

    Plus I think the S2 Custom 24 will have a solid flame maple top instead of the flame veneer over plain maple that are on the SEs.

    Can't wait to try these out!

    The S2s will be built by PRS employees in the same PRS-owned facility as the other Maryland-made guitars and sport the "Paul Reed Smith" signature on their headstocks. SEs are not manufatured by PRS. That difference alone is going to put a huge dent in SE sales.

    Now this is what I've been talking about and waiting for!! An affordable US-made PRS guitar! I absolutely love the S2 Custom 24 and the S2 Mira.

    The S2 site is excellent. They do a great job of showing the details and how they're different from the core and SE lines.

    Much respect to Paul and the gang for these. I personally had been feeling a bit alienated from the brand because I'm at a stage in my life where I appreciate the Maryland craftsmanship, but spending $2-3k for a guitar is out of the question. I'm pleased to see them giving some attention to the budgetary "middle class".

    A 22 fret, 25" scale Mira is a particularly tantalizing offering, but the Starla sounds killer in the demos!

    However, there's only one PRS plant in the United States, and that plant is located in Maryland. The company makes a point of stating that the guitars are made in Maryland.
