Understanding the S2 Controls Layout

by PRS Guitars on October 1, 2014

Filed Under Electrics / S2 Series

Last year we introduced our S2 line of guitars with the idea of offering high-quality American made guitars at a more affordable price. We started with three models: the S2 Mira, the S2 Starla, and the S2 Custom 24. Since then, we have added 5 new models for a total of 8 product offerings in the S2 Series.

We are proud of how they look, how they feel, and most importantly how they sound. Each guitar in the lineup sounds a bit different and produces different tones. However, one thing that all of the S2 models share is their simple yet intelligent control layout that helps the player achieve a wide variety of great tones. Check out this blog post to see how it all works.

Meet PRS Guitar’s First All-Mahogany Acoustic: SE Angelus A10E

by PRS Guitars on September 16, 2014

Filed Under Acoustics / SE Acoustics

The SE A10E is the first all-mahogany guitar in the SE Angelus line up. It is offered in two colors, Tortoise Shell and Black. The all-mahogany body construction of this guitar provides a controlled attack and strong fundamental, delivering a warm, woody tone with a focused, punchy midrange. This strong midrange character allows the A10E to easily find a non-competing place in a mix, making it ideal for both the studio and the stage.

“Private Stock” guitars are custom-built and made to order. The goal of Private Stock is to create the most beautiful, best playing, and best sounding guitar money can buy. A customer ordering a Private Stock can select their own wood types, pickups, electronic configuration, and so much more.

Each month we will select one of these Private Stock built guitars and feature it on this blog. We will take detailed photos and explain the components that make the guitar unique.

Recently, Paul Reed Smith took a trip out west to visit downtown Bozeman, Montana, the home of The Acoustic Letter. The goal of the trip was for Paul to have a conversation with Tony Polecastro, master acoustic guitar reviewer and front man of The Acoustic Letter. In a fun and laid back setting, Tony fired questions at Paul relating to Paul’s history with acoustic guitars, favorite tone woods, and the philosophy and approach our company takes towards building these hand-crafted acoustic instruments.
