S2 Starla

Retro Personality. Distinct Voice.

S2 Starla

All the vibe you’ve wanted in a guitar with the added stability you need for the gig. Meet Starla, your new best friend for the studio and stage.

The eyecatching Bigsby B50 tailpiece can be used creatively to subtlety modulate your chords and notes while the PRS Low Mass Locking Tuners will keep you in tune through it all. Out of the box, the Starla is balanced and as comfortable as a guitar you’ve been playing for years. The Starla humbucking pickups are at once articulate, aggresive, and jangly - and with a quick pull on the tone control, the coils are tapped for a whole new range of singlecoil exploration.

Pick one up and check out what the Starla can do for your riffs.

"Like most PRS guitars, the Starla is more than the sum of its parts and the little details add up to make a stellar guitar."

- Phillip Dodge, Tone Report

"The Starla has a feel, vibe, and style that's familiar to long-time players of SG's, LP's, and LP jr's but is SO much better built than anything on the market right now that's in that vein. Right out of the box, the set-up and feel of my guitar was perfect. I think PRS will finally reel in a whole batch of classic loving players with the Starla."

- Devin Malone, Hunter Hayes

"My favorite guitar is the PRS Starla. This guitar sings! Killer classic vintage looks, lightweight, plays like a dream and with the bigsby and coil tap makes it the PERFECT guitar for what I do w/ Green River Ordinance."

- Jamey Ice, Green River Ordinance Band

"This guitar looks, sounds, and plays like a dream. From its light weight body (that won't break your back) to the coil tapping pickups and Bigsby tail piece, I can't help but have a blast every time I plug it in!"

- Christopher Goodwin, American Fangs

"Being able to enjoy both the single coil and double coil greatness is amazing to me. Not to mention I’m a diehard humbucker fan. Having this solid body guitar makes my every move feel very secure. Whether it’s the security in holding the guitar or the security in how my hands feel on the neck of the guitar. And adding the Bigsby light tremolo effect is like adding candy."

- Justin Lyons, BIG BANG

"This guitar has already changed the way I play. The sounds you can get out of it are incredible. Right out of the box at the house the Starla's were a blast. Even without an amp they're really loud and very easy to play! Probably one of the greatest things about these guitars is that they refuse to go out of tune which is HUGE. Staying in tune is such a big deal for me and having total confidence in a guitar is like having total confidence in the people you play with onstage. I can't say enough about these guitars!"

- JJ Grey, JJ Grey & Mofro

"The PRS Starla has such a rocking and concise tone together at the same time. I can hear the dynamics of each string, something I haven’t found with other guitars. I get more compliments on this guitar than any other guitar I’ve ever owned. I play my Starla, every song, every show!!"

- James Young, Eli Young Band

"I have always heard fellow musicians say that PRS guitars play so well, stay intonated, and are a favorite among other guitars. It's been a long time coming that I finally own one and I can say now that I am a believer."

- Josh Wilkerson, Green River Ordinance Band

"I'm in love with my seafoam green Starla - the thing flat out rocks! Every time I play her, I'm blown away with how awesome the tone is. The pickups clean up so nicely, but crank the volume, and she'll howl! This is the guitar I've dreamed about ever since I started playing."

- Heath Robinson, Tyler & The Tribe
