Completely agree. I'd think the SE Hollowbody would be the closest to the 335, based on construction?I would say they are not in the same ballpark. Completely different construction. The PRS is going to be pretty similar to a solid body. The ES 335 should have a laminated body, shorter scale length and is a lot more hollow. Both are great but not substitutes in my opinion.
I have seen you post your S2 Singlecut semi-hollow before chicagoslim, and now I pretty much have to have one. I like the wide/slim neck on my CE24 and wonder about the difference on yours. Very nice top on it. Others I have seen are not as nice. It’s a similar shape to my SE Tremonti Custom and a semi-hollow, what’s not to like.
Oh that Red……….I was a semi-hollow and thin hollow body guy for over 25 years. I owned an ES335 many years ago, a Heritage H535, Ibanez and Gretsch models, recently. I switched to a S2 Semi-hollow Singlecut. It is actually livelier than the other semi-hollows. Being carved, It reacts and feeds back more like a full hollow body. I haven't tried a Special Semi-hollow, but I would like to.
Sweet as sweet!Well I broke down and bought a 2014 S2 Singlecut Semi-Hollow due to the pics by chicagoslim and his fondness of them. Nice guitar. Plays well and I don’t mind the stick #7 pickups. Little different neck than my wide slim necks on my other PRS, but not too different. Don’t use hosting sites for my photo’s so sorry no pics. It’s a tobacco burst though. I keep saying there needs to be an easier way to upload pics here.
But the biggest difference to me is in playing ergonomics and weight. That ES 335 sounded glorious but was a pain to play, the wide body gave me neck and shoulder cramps. The SSH is light as a feather, and fits against my body like the most comfortable strat.
I am digging the single chevron in the grain that is sweet! No question on which one is yours.My S2 Singlecut Semi was my first S2 guitar and I now own three of them. I started with Wide/Fat necks and easily adjusted to the Pattern/Regular. The picture that I posted, is a guitar shop, high contrast photo. The guitar looks less dramatic, in person. Here is one of my photo's, after I changed the knobs.
