Thread: Introducing the New S2 Series - Made In Maryland - Starting at $1,179

  1. #21
    Huge props to PRS for these. They sound fantastic! The look is right, too.

    So now I have questions:

    The videos mention S2 bridges - what are the differences?

    And what about the pickups?

    What happens to the "S1" Mira and Starla models? I still want one!

    In any event, what a great thing to have these at this price point! I see one in Jamie's future....

    I LOVE that Sienna color.

    EDIT: I read more about the models on the site, and now have answers about the bridges, etc.

    I think a seafoam green Mira with birds is in my future. Sounds killer in the demo.

    Might have to pick something up at the Experience! I always wanted a Custom 24. I am glad that it doesn't say S2 on the headstock like the SE line and has the PRS signature.

    Take a second and read some of the stuff here and I think your questions will be answered:

    We'll also have a FAQ on the line up in the next couple of days.

    Once the existing orders are flushed through, the original Starla and Mira will be discontinued.

    So are the maple tops on the Custom 24 a veneer like the SE version?

    The only way to tell the difference between an "S1" and an S2 is by the body shape? I didn't notice any specific markings to signify that it's an S2. That's pretty cool as it's a bit more under cover than the SE. I think it's an excellent price point! That Starla is callin...

    Thanks, Shawn!

    I do like the 24 fret Mira, so maybe I should try to find one before it's too late.

    This is fantastic, and I'm loving the idea and the price point. But I have to echo some questions:

    By looks alone, the trem on the custom (which is the one I am GASing for) looks of similar quality as an SE trem, especially the bar. I hate SE trem bars. That is a little bit of a turn off for me, so I hope that I am wrong and there are differences in the two. I also hope the pickups hold their own. Other than that, I am loving the looks of these, and the locking tuners. I think PRS has the best lockers around, functionally and aesthetically.
    The inlay options of the other two are awesome too!

    I was spoiled by coil splitting way back in the 90s (thank you, Carvin), so why a 3-way on the Custom as opposed to 5-way OR using both knobs to split the pickups? 5- way preferred, just my opinion.
    I love 24 frets: 4 X CU24s, 2 X Carvin DC127s, 1 X Schechter Omen 6

    I'm not so sure the "S" stands for Stevensville.

    Thanks! It does indeed. I seriously want one of each though. Do you guys think this will have an effect on the price of original Miras and Starlas on the used market? As far as Miras go, I played a 2011 in a guitar shop in really amazing condition once, and it was at this price point.

    Awesome news! I appreciated the idea with the X series, but just didn't click with the too flat bodies. Now these? AWESOME!

    I'm sorry to hear the original Mira is going away. I love the 24 frets and the mini toggle on mine. The toggle is an easy mod, though.

    Too cool!

    Are the prices listed on the S2 website 'list' or suggested selling prices?

    This are great news!.

    It seems to me that PRS is doing the same thing than Fender with their Highway 1 series. I mean, for the S2 CU24, there is the PRS SE bridge.. I could be mistaken but it seems that there is no binding also.

    So it has some parts of the SE line, but it's builded on USA, (same as Highway 1). And it gives you the chance to perform upgrades (like changing pickups and, again my guess, the pickup selector) so you can approach to the real CU24. Again a practice that has proven worthy and good for users and company. Very smart move !

    I prefer 22 frets, but the 24 could be the replacement for my old SECU22...

    OK, not really. But I think it does.

    Can't wait to try out one of these.
