Everyone needs a Mira.
Love what you did to the Vela! That mint guard looks cool, and I really dig the look of the chicken heads with that finish.
Great guitars (and your Vela mods are tasty!), great amps, great pics. 3 greats in one post!
And here I thought I was the only one doing that.
Some interesting older videos, yet still very informative.
Also, Mira and Vela are amazing guitars and and least one of them should be in everyone's arsenal. You need an enabler, man, you come to the right place.
Congratulations! Those guitars are so beautiful that it hurts! I love that Studio!
Do you have that on a schematic yet? Is the factory guitar switch built different than a Fender Strat-type?
One I know you can do on a regular Strat 5-way is swap the middle and neck pickups at the switch lugs for essentially a 3-way with two more middle options.
Or swap the bridge and middle for
Otherwise I think you may be into one of the big '5-way super switch' setups.
2 great guitars : Studio and Vela.
I recently bought a Studio and really appreciate its personality.
I would also be interested by a S2 singlecut custom, may be next year if I can save the money...
The videos provided by @paulogs are very instructive, even if President Jack speaks a little low .
The neck building process is very interesting, I thing the neck is a great part of a guitar.
When I opened my Studio to check the wiring I discovered high quality work.... but behind the pickguard it was not as clean as on the videos , they had left plenty of dust, not very cool.
I read somewhere that for building the Studio, PRS temporarily hired employees, just for this task, is it true ?
Nice! Two is always better than one.
Congrats! I've been a Vela fanboi since early on... still say it's the most unique PRS model ever.
I recently acquired an S2 standard 22 that I'm really diggin' on... Like you, I actually prefer playing the S2 models over my core guitars.
Thanks. I work REALLY hard on the pictures. That photo session took 4 hours. I rearranged the room and lighting multiple times. I took 77 pictures total, but those are the best of the lot.
The effort really shows - very much pro grade glamour shots!
I have some sweet Core guitars, and they drip with tone - but I find I get more "attitude" from the S2s. It's probably imaginary, but I play with much more gusto on an S2. I dig in harder. With my Core guitars I tend to play with more finesse. Usually when I doing sessions, I'll use an S2 for rhythm and a Core for lead and melodic parts.
Yeah, totally. The funny thing is that I am finding I am acquiring more PRS' with single coils. As I am getting older, I am digging single coil tones more. It's why I HAD to get another Paul's Guitar. While I have the Brent Mason, the Paul's is just different enough to justify having it. I still LOVE my 57/08 loaded axes, but as the gain reduces with age, I am finding singles to be more colorful and responsive.
I get what you are saying about "value", but the S2 series is really more than just value. I am blessed enough to have the S2's in rotation with Limited Edition, Wood Library, and Artist Package guitar. The S2 really does bring a real rock-n-roll vibe to the PRS line - especially the Standard. The all mahogany construction with the pickguards really make them stand apart from the rest of the line visually and tonally.
