S2 Vela Semi-Hollow
The S2 Vela Semi-Hollow is a vintage-inspired guitar with loads of personality and tonal textures. Its offset body shape is at once elegant and edgy, and the addition of a semi-hollow body and f-hole gives the Vela added attitude and resonance.
Its pickguard-loaded electronics feature a PRS DS-01 pickup in the treble pickup position, providing a bright, chimey tone and the PRS-Designed Type-D Singlecoil in the bass pickup position gives the Vela some noteworthy bite. The coil-tap on the tone control allows the treble pickup to split to singlecoils, providing a balanced tone that will cut through the mix with style. Anchoring this guitar is the PRS plate-style bridge with two saddles that were designed to compensate for intonation. This bridge harkens back to Paul’s early designs and traditional bass plate-style bridges, but is top-loading for easy restringing. Like the bridge found on Paul’s Guitar and some Private Stock models, PRS’s plate-style bridge features brass saddles and an aluminum plate for maximum tonal sustain.
Our steel plate-style bridge is easy to string, comfortable, fully-intonating and it sounds great.
PRS-Designed DS-01 & Type-D Single Coil
Tone with attitude. Designed to deliver clear, full midrange and articulate, chimey high-end.
