    I’ve had mine for a couple of months now. Just a great guitar, unique but eminently usable. Easy to find a great tone. And so light!

    My Vela has been neglected the past few months due to me favoring my Les Paul. My wife was working late so I had the house to myself and decided to break out my Friedman and play through my whole rotation.

    I got to the Vela and easily spent the rest of the night playing around with it. It’s definitely my favorite guitar to play clean and the breakup it achieves sounds great. It’s so light and comfortable too, PRS really did a phenomenal job with every aspect of the Vela.

    Personally, I think if there ever was an S2 model that deserved to be bumped to core status it would be the Vela. Offer it with a sexy 10-top, some gorgeous earthy colors....I mean, I know that defeats the purpose of it, but still!!!

    I know Brian's did a couple Private Stock Velas that look gorgeous!

    I just want a Semi Hollow Vela with birds...is that too much to ask? :(

    Been thinking of a PS Vela, but the new 594 crushed that. As far as an SH Vela w/ birds? Not too much to ask. I wish the birds made it back to the S2 line - I mean they can put pearly looking birds on SEs, why not S2s?

    Agreed, I tried to prod Brian into doing a special run ;)

    I have a set of Core Starla's that I'm itching to put in a Semi-Hollow
