PRS S2 Vela Satin - McCarty Tobacco Sunburst

« back

The S2 Vela Satin is a vintage-inspired guitar with loads of personality and tonal textures. Continuing in the style of the Mira and Starla models, the Vela boasts an offset body shape that is at once elegant and edgy. The addition of a satin nitro finish for this limited edition gives the Vela added attitude and resonance and a truly addictive feel.

Its pickguard-loaded electronics feature a PRS-Designed Starla pickup in the bridge, providing a bright, punky tone, and the PRS-Designed Type-D Singlecoil in the neck that gives the Vela some noteworthy bite. The coil-tap on the tone control allows the bridge 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 new plate-style bridge features brass saddles and an aluminium plate for maximum tonal sustain.

Dial in some drive tone though and you really get into a great tone that's ideal for American style rock and blues. Because these aren't high output pickups the sound is balanced and stays clean and articulated no matter how much you pump the gain. Just check out the video PRS have made for some examples of theses sounds. You just have to hear them.
