The PRS S2 Singlecut boasts a classic body shape and the tried-and-true combination of mahogany, maple, and rosewood.

The PRS S2 Series offers the fit, finish, feel, and attention to detail of PRS craftsmanship in a straightforward design. Standing for “Stevensville 2,” S2 Series instruments are made at the PRS Maryland shop blending new design elements and manufacturing techniques with practiced quality control and workmanship to create reimagined, fresh guitars that reach a more affordable price for players. With a simple, straightforward design these guitars have serious style and expressive tone.

Retaining the classic maple top/mahogany back combination, with the classic singlecut body shape & a new asymmetrical beveled top, this guitar is resonant with a funky familiarity. The new asymmetrical, beveled body shape offers a vintage vibe, and the flatness of the top gives the S2 Singlecut a big, resonant voice. Its versatility comes from its custom-wound pickups (with coil tap) and 3-way blade switch. Familiar for PRS players of old, and a fresh take for players of all types.

A guitar should be comfortable and feel familiar from the moment you pick it up, and the neck is paramount to that connection. The PRS S2 S2 Singlecut features a 25” mahogany neck with scarf-joint construction and the PRS "Pattern Regular" neck shape, which stems back to the PRS “Regular” neck shape found on guitars made in the late 1980’s in the PRS Virginia Avenue Annapolis shop.

The PRS S2 Singlecut is also equipped with a PRS S2 Stoptail as well as PRS S2 locking tuners, and custom-wound pickups. PRS S2 Series proprietary pickups are built to PRS' exact specifications, including wire and coating materials, winds, and resistance. The PRS S2 Singlecut features a 3-way toggle switch with a two volume and tone tone controls. Coil-tap functionality adds versatility by allowing players to split the humbucking pickups into singlecoils, providing a vast array of tones. The jack assembly used on the S2 Series is the same jack as used on the PRS Core line, providing a clean connection point to amplify your sound.

Finish should do three things: most importantly, it should enhance the tone of a guitar. It should also feel good to the player’s touch, and it should look good. The finish used on the PRS S2 Series accomplishes these goals by featuring a polyester basecoat and an acrylic topcoat [reminiscent of the finish system used on PRS Core guitars for twenty years (before the introduction of V12)]. PRS updated the process of this finish requiring a thinner topcoat for optimal tone. This old-but-new finish maintains a hi-gloss, attractive aesthetic.

Whether the PRS S2 S2 Singlecut is your first PRS or an addition to your arsenal, one thing is certain: each model in the PRS S2 Series is a solid American-made guitar that makes no sacrifice in playability or tone. Includes Gig Bag.

      Comments about Paul Reed Smith S2 Singlecut Electric Guitar:

      The quantity of different tones is amazing. This guitar, coupled with my amp simulator, gives me dozens of sounds that are perfect for my home studio. PRS saved me money by sending a (quality) gig bag instead of a hard case. The finish on this guitar is top-notch. I will probably scratch the guitar, since it has no pickguard, but that is a small price to pay for the maple top. Evan, in customer service was a big help in getting this guitar shipped.
