Back in 2013, Paul Reed Smith shook up the guitar world yet again with the S2 series of guitars. For years, Paul had dreamt of building American-made PRS guitars that were accessible to the average guitar picker without sacrificing the impeccable build quality and spectacular sounds that built the PRS name in the first place. A lofty goal, certainly, but the PRS team delivered the goods when they unveiled their new creations.
The main goal of the S2 series was to build dependable, versatile guitars that played well and sounded gorgeous without bank-busting prices. To say that they succeeded is an understatement. PRS's S2 guitars play like butter coated in Crisco, and they speak with rich, full voices that work wonders live and in the studio. For working musicians, they are inspiring tools that can handle grueling gigs and sessions with great aplomb. For beginners and hobbyists, they are sweet-sounding guitars that play easily and enrich the music-making experience. And, they're also a great way to dip your toes into the wonderful world of PRS for the first time!
However, focusing on the incredible value the S2 series provides sells these guitars short, because they also look gorgeous! They sport simple, elegant finishes with subtle, stylish cosmetic appointments that will ensure you walk with a little extra swagger in your step with your S2 slung over your shoulder.
The bottom line is simple: if you're looking for a reliable, sweet-looking guitar that sounds magnificent, stays in tune, and plays like a dream, the S2 is perfect for you!
