    It seems that the Studio has the same pickups as the Starla and Vela.

    Even though I'm playing my Les Paul Deluxe in the attached photo, my main gigging guitar for the last 2 years has been my PRS S2 Mira. I just ordered my PRS S2 Studio in Frost Green Metallic, after spending an hour playing one the other day, and I can't wait to get it! The Mira is a great sounding and great playing guitar, that is good for almost any style, from country to blues to hard rock. Probably not extreme enough for death metal, but still very versatile. My impression of the Studio was that it will fit the bill perfectly for the same width of genre's. The Starla bridge pickup is bright and articulate, but with enough balls and warmth, to get nasty when you want to! The area where the Studio really excels is in the switching set up with the D-Type Single Coils! These pickups are wonderful sounding, and fit between a strat-style single, and a P-90, but with even more girth. The second position gives you the neck D-Type and the outsode coil of the Starla bridge, and is a fantastic sound, hard to compare to much else. The middle D-Type gives you all the spank of a Tele, but with some warmth and complexity. Country players and older classic rock players, may well live on this middle position! The D-Type's really give this guitar a character, and depth that you don't find in most modern guitars. You can always add enough distortion to push a guitar to scream, but you can't make a crappy guitar sing with depth and color in the tone.
    False harmonics, will jump out of the Starla bridge pickup when overdriven, and still give you a complex and musical sound, rich with overtones. So when you need to get the crowds attention, just squeeze out a few screaming leads with this baby! The feel of course is fantastic, and build quality is just what you'd expect from PRS, excellent!
    Wrap your hands around one of these bad boys ASAP, then let journey begin!

    I'd like to try a guitar with the d type pickups but nobody stocks them where I live.

    The Starla bridge pickups are surprisingly sensitive to height adjustments and pole piece setup. If anyone has one or buys one, have a play around with it, you will be surprised how snappy and fat they can be
