PRS Celebrates the S2 Series’ First Anniversary with Three New Semi-Hollow Models

On the first anniversary of the S2 Series, PRS is adding three new models to the lineup: the S2 Mira Semi-Hollow, S2 Custom 22 Semi-Hollow, and the S2 Singlecut Semi-Hollow. These three new models further PRS’s desire to create a complete product offering inside the S2 Series.

We are seeing a great interest in semi-hollow guitars across all of our product lines – from Private Stock custom pieces to the SE Zach Meyers – and we are as excited about these guitars as anything we’ve made so far inside of S2. They are harmonically rich, remarkably resonant, feel fantastic, and have a very cool, organic vibe. Like all the S2’s, the goal of these semi-hollow models is to bring inspirational, reliable, quality tools to players at a new PRS price point,” Jack Higginbotham, President, PRS Guitars.

First in the lineup is the S2 Mira Semi-Hollow. Rarely is a guitar reinvented in a way that it equals the original, becoming not just a spin off, but a wholly independent thought.  The S2 Mira Semi-Hollow is one such guitar, with the sum of the changes resulting in a radical change in personality. A distinctive take on the S2 Mira, this semi-hollow version boasts a chambered all-mahogany body and low output pickups that create a warm, smoky harmonic richness that can overdrive to classic rock tones all with tremendous punch and clarity. The S2 Mira Semi-Hollow not only has instant vibe, it provides effortless playability, instant comfort, and explosive tone. Bottom line, the S2 Mira Semi-Hollow will give you distinctive tonal depth and stunning visual appeal.

Next is the S2 Custom 22 Semi-Hollow. The Custom 22 is a classic workhorse guitar. Known for its exceptional clarity and warm midrange, the S2 Custom 22 Semi-Hollow has been updated here with a chambered mahogany/maple body and f-hole, giving this vintage-inspired guitar a classic look and outstanding resonance. Appointments include the patented PRS tremolo system, #7 treble and bass pickups, and a push/pull coil tap on the tone control for versatile, alive vintage tone.

The third guitar offered as a semi-hollow instrument through the S2 line is the S2 Singlecut Semi-Hollow. The S2 Singlecut Semi-Hollow is a classic instrument with a clear voice that balances punch and sustain. The classic control layout (with volume and tone for each pickup) and added versatility of a push/pull coil tap on the tone controls give players plenty of options to dial in flawless tone. Whether playing lead or rhythm, the S2 Singlecut Semi-Hollow is eminently recordable and always gig-ready.

PRS Guitars announced the S2 Series on July 9, 2013. Standing for “Stevensville 2,” the S2 Series is named for a second manufacturing line created inside the PRS Stevensville, Maryland shop that blends new manufacturing techniques with practiced quality control and workmanship to create instruments at a new price point for players.
