    Warming-up to the S2s

    When I saw the 15% off MF email of course I was lured over there and started looking at PRSs.
    They have a LOT of S2s.
    First thing I noticed was that the MAP on say a SC is like $1300 :-O

    I'm THAT GUY who has been ranting about the S2s (not raving, RANTING).
    Without having ever played, held, touched or even SEEN one in the flesh I made my judgements.

    Well....after taking a much closer look.... they still aren't on my GAS list but I wanna try one.

    This post has been SERIOUSLY edited. It WAS like 15 pages long.

    Point is... I wanna try one now. I wont be buying one...at least not NEW....I LOVE my SEs and core PRSs but I am looking forward to trying an S2.

    I wonder how many times someone has to bash you in the forehead telling you THEY ARE MADE IN AMERICA before you will stop spewing like this.....?

    "Anyway...while there are still a lot of things that leave a bad taste as far as the S2s go (their prices and claiming they are American guitars)"

    "the misleading MADE in America 3 words...."

    I just bought my S2 SC yesterday...

    I don't know about where the parts are made and all of that,,,,this I do know....

    I come from a family where almost every male has played the guitar for three generations back. So, I have handled a lot of guitars, Fenders, LP etc etc......

    I did pay the $1610 out the door price and yes, I do agree it may be a bit pricey to some, but, people blow money on lots of crap and don't even think about it.

    My S2 SC is nowhere near crap and after a day of playing my girl friend, I have ZERO regrets!

    For me, it plays like a dream, the balance in perfect and I just can't get enough.....

    I have my S2 hooked up to a small Fender M-80 and the tones melt my heart. The action is fast and the neck feels great in my hands.

    Have you heard a guy tell a girl that she makes him want to be a better man, well, my S2 makes me want to be a better guitar player so that I can do right by my S2.

    She deserves to crank out tunes worthy of her name..........

    I am IN LOVE!!!!!!!!!

    But not edited enough to remove your misinformed "facts."

    This is beyond tiresome and straying into the trollish area.

    The SC is probably the best bang for your buck S2. All of the important parts are core parts...bridge, nut, pots, etc. Swap the pickups and you got a top notch axe.

    Out of curiosity, what pick ups would you have in the SC?
    Thanks

    You can make the same claim for the Mira, which is what I have, and I agree with you. I ended up swapping the pickups and it has transformed it into the best guitar I have ever owned, regardless of price.

    If it were me, Seymour Duncan JB & Jazz with the nickle covers. That guitar just screams hot bridge pickup rock machine to me.

    Same here. I loaded my Mira with a DiMarzio Super Distortion bridge and a PAF Pro neck and it flat out kills. My 245 has a Tremonti Bridge and Vintage Bass neck, same result. My SG has a Dirty Fingers in the bridge and stock neck. Hot bridge/vintage neck is my preferred setup and I would put a flamethrower in the bridge of that SC.
