I saw Bryan Ewald demo the S2 Studio at a PRS clinic hosted by John Mann in NH. Before Bryan had even finished, someone in the crowd bought the guitar. Bryan also demo'd guitars costing 5-10 times more than the S2 Studio, but this was the guitar that floored me. Amazing Strat-like tones in the neck, P/U position 2 & 4 tones are great, and the bridge was round and clear. I bought one on-line last week, played it out live last night and kept smiling, so many different tones and all of them impressive. I still can't believe how inexpensive this guitar was for what it delivers. Birds and a hardshell case would have been nice, but I'm keeping my mouth shut. This guitar is truly amazing.
