The Vela continues in the style of the Mira and Starla models. The Vela boasts a new offset body shape that is at once elegant and edgy.
Its pickguard loaded electronics feature a PRS-Designed Starla pickup in the bridge, providing a bright, punky tone, and the new 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 single-coils, providing a balanced tone that will cut through the mix with style.
Anchoring this guitar is a 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' plate-style bridge features brass saddles and an aluminum plate for maximum tonal sustain.
Includes gig bag.

Comments about PRS S2 Vela Dot Inlays Electric Guitar:
Wow! This guitar packs a whole lot into a sexy and durable frame. I like the looks and it's pretty comfortable, especially while standing up due to it shape. It's surprisingly light too.
The neck low output single coil is amazing. It responds to all B-M-T settings well and can play through different effects like a champ. It's got great cool and clear tones clean. It's a bit strat like, but it sounds cleaner IMO. It's also great for an alternative sound with layered overdrive/distortion and effects, which it can handle as well.
The bridge splits, with the single coil being hot and bright and trebly. It's quite different from the neck. Very Tele sounding. This one is a bit more finicky with effects than the neck is, but it's again different sounding than the other 2.
The bridge humbucker is sizzly, yet balanced. It's a great all around pickup that is geared towards the hot end, without being super high output.
Then you can play them in middle position mixed, which is very cool. They all balance nicely volume wise and especially soundwise, though the humbucker is a bit louder sometimes, but not by much.
The bridge seems simple yet effective and holds sustain well, and fits with what the guitar is supposed to be. The guitar body vibrates when you play.
I'd definitely get this guitar if you want a variety of tones all stacked into one machine. PRS did a great job blending it all into one setup, and it has the classic PRS quality build.
