    New model speculation thread!

    Hahaha, I LOVE stuff like this. PRS just posted this on Facebook. I spy in the background a guitar which is clearly a singlecut with an F hole, but does not appear to have the thicker body like a Singlecut Hollowbody 2. S2 Hollowbody maybe? They sort of look like Zach Meyers models, only not painted or assembled, and no switch on the upper bout. What do you think?

    Hard to tell the depth of the body. Could just be an SC HB.

    That said, I'd love to see an S2 similar to a ZM!

    looks to me like a SCHB with the piezo controls cavities and jack cavity too. anyway, I'd love to see a S2 ZM and a S2 12 strings electric. an SE acoustic 12 strings would be awesome too.

    I think you're looking at the blue one in the foreground. I'm talking about the rack of unpainted unstained unassembled guitars in the background, in the top right of the photo. Nevermind all those guitars in the foreground. This part of the picture:

    Exactly! Also, NS has the switch on the upper bout as well.

    OK, OK. Soon, we'll be introducing our new resonator banjo, complete with drum head, resonator cone and f holes.

    Ha! The NS is like the duck-billed platypus of PRS.



    Neil rules though... So I guess whatever he likes...

    Haha the NS is so close to something I want to love, and so far from something I would use. If it had a PRS trem and normal F holes I would be all over it.

    NS f.hole is wrong, the Floyd on that guitar is wrong but the 3 way switch on the upper bound is right NS14, but on the NS15 (SCT, SCHB & JA15) is soooooooo wrong.

    S2 Singlecut Hollowbody. NAMM July 2014! You heard it hear, Whaaaaat! That's my guess anyway? Yeah... I think so.

    You've just made me the happiest man in the world!

    I'll take one with an Artist Package, calfskin drumhead, rosewood neck. BRW fingerboard, mixed hardware with paisley engravings on the resonator cone cover, and the optional pickup because banjos are never loud enough.

    Also, I'm counting down the days, minutes and hours until my new Private Stock accordion is ready! Please let Tina know that the wood scraps from Tag's soon-to-be-cut-up pomegranate guitar are fine for the inlaid letters that say "Lesteban" on the keyboard side reed cover.

    Hmmm, the Big G just introduced a semi-hollow version of their flag ship guitar (and it looks good), so maybe an S2 semi is in the works. They could be a very cool trend.
