The Vela clearly has its own personality. If you love PRS craftsmanship, but want to stray from the pack a little bit, the Vela is for you. This guitar has classic PRS quality, coupled with unique design features, and a Vela Starla humbucker with a Type-D single coil. This guitar is worth a closer look.

Classic PRS Quality
Despite its stylistic differences, this guitar is still PRS to the bone. Featuring an all-mahogany body, the Vela sports a rich tone and solid build, with a beveled top and double cutaways for awesome playing comfort. The mahogany pattern regular neck provides a smooth feel and is topped with the sleek rosewood fretboard to make the Vela play like butter.

Unique Design Features
Though they've been in the game a while, the Vela is PRS's first offset body design. Its elongated configuration is also noticeable on the pickguard, which curves around in an S shape underneath the controls on the lower bout. The bridge of this guitar is also special, sporting a plate-style with two brass saddles created for sustain and intonation. The Vela also has PRS Low Mass Locking Tuners.

Vela Starla Humbucker with a Type-D Single Coil
You won't find electronics like this on any other guitar. The Vela was outfitted with two unique pickups for a combination that achieves a bright tone, useful for many musical stylings. The neck pickup is a Type-D single coil, which both looks and sounds unique. The bridge is a Starla humbucker which gives you higher output tonal options. The Vela has a three-way switch and volume and tone controls, plus the tone knob is a push/pull which engages a coil-tap on the Starla humbucker, adding additional unique voicings to the mix.
