    Sad New Guitar Day... As some of you may know, I missed out on a custom color purple S2 CU24 a while back, and have been jonesing since. When I stumbled on a Sparkle Deep Purple S2 CU24 35th, I jumped on it. Got a good deal from the mom&pop store. It arrived today, and as advertised it looks...

    S2 Custom 24 tone control

    I just bought a used 2018 S2 Custom 24 on Reverb. I was disappointed to find the tone control didn't work well. Starting at 10 for maximum brightness, when I slowly turn it down, there is little or no drop in treble until you get to 2 or 3, when the treble is cut drastically. In short, it's...

    Properly Fitting Case for S2 Custom (35th Anniversary series)

    Has anybody identified a properly fitting case for my new (and very nice) S2 Custom 35th Anniversary Model? It seems as though the multi-fit is not a good fit for the guitar, and I'd hate to have to make my own from a Pelican box. A guitar this nice deserves its own custom-fitted case!

    How is the S2 Custom 24 better than the SE?

    I'm contemplating replacing my 2002 Santana SE so looked into the current PRS line and saw the "new" S2 line which is supposed to sit between the SE and Core. That seemed perfect for me, and I almost decided to get an S2 Custom 24. But then I started to look at the specs a bit closer and I can't...

    S2 Custom 24 Pickguard

    Hi everyone. Happy to say I'm the proud new owner of a whale blue S2 custom. Couldn't be happier... unless... there was a gorgeous off-white pickguard, perhaps pearly-white, that was tastefully crafted to accentuate the beveled maple top. Wondering... anyone know of anyone who does pickguards...

    PRS CE 24 Semi-Hollow or S2 Custom 24 35th Anniversary

    Hoping to get some insights. I have an S2 Starla with Bigsby that I absolutely love. I am planning to add another PRS to my collection and debating between the S2 Custom 24 35th Anniversary Edition or the CE 24 Semi-Hollow. Both are stunning. I love the independent split switches on the 35th...

    S2 Custom 24 Hard Case

    Recently got an S2 Custom 24 and I am having trouble finding a hard case which fits properly. So far I've tried the top two I saw recommended online. First I tried the PRS Multi-fit Case. The guitar sat at an angle with the neck a couple inches higher than the rest. This made the headstock sit...

    NGD - S2 Custom 24 - Violin Amber Sunburst

    Couldn't pass up this beauty. It's only an S2, it shouldn't look this good. :) I debated getting it for awhile, I already have a SE Cu 24, but glad I did, it is an awesome guitar! Although they have the same pups (it seems), the S2 has a noticeably different sound than the SE. While the sounds...

    S2 Tuner: too sensitivity?

    Hi All, I got my S2 CU24 for few months from the factory (and i didn't change anything). One thing I think about is the tuner. When I twist the tuner a little bit, the pitch change a lot, much more sensitivity to my previous SE. Is it normal? or something wrong with the tuner or springs...

    S2 pickups vs 85/15 pickups ?

    Would it make a huge difference to put 85/15 pickups in my S2 Custom 24? Any other recommendations for replacement pickups for this guitar?

    Lollar pickups in an S2?

    Hello, I'm thinking about replacing the pickups in my S2 Custom 24. I was recently introduced to a strat with lollar pickups and I loved the sound, so I'm wondering how they would sound in my S2. Any recommendations for S2 replacement pickups? I play alternative, gospel, blues, rock... Thanks!

    Neck combos...

    Trying to decide between maple neck + rosewood fretboard, or rosewood neck + ebony fretboard. Currently have the S2 CU24 with mahogany neck + rosewood fretboard. Looking for more of a brighter sound... Maple neck + ebony fretboard was way too bright when I found one at the store to try... Can’t...

    S2 Custom 22 vs 24.... 2017 vs 2018

    Hey all, This is my first post here! Just a little background to help with my question. I bought my first Squire at age 21. I played it for a year, sold it, and bought a brand new 1997 American Strat. After about six months, life happened (kids, wife, grad school, and no time for guitar)...

    Mannmade Bridge for S2 - worth it?

    Hi There, So I see a million threads about folks with SE's getting Mann made bridges, but not really about S2. I have an S2c24. I like it, and have always thought the bridge was fine, but ran across the Mann made bridges and heard that they are as good or better than core, etc. Is this...

    SE CU24 x S2 Std Satin 24 - (Which Should I Buy?)

    Hi guys. Hoping not to create a thread that already exists. Looked in forum and couldn't find the answer to this. It's my first time at this forum and it will be my first PRS too. And I'm really in need of help to decide if I should buy a SE Custom 24 (2017 Trampas Green) or a S2 Standard 24...
