The S2 Singlecut boasts a classic body shape and the tried-and-true combination of mahogany, maple, and rosewood.
The S2 Singlecut balances response and sustain with clarity and precision, making this guitar a perfect option for both lead and rhythm work. The classic control layout (with volume and tone for each pickup) and added versatility of a push/pull coil tap on the tone controls give players plenty of options to dial in flawless tone.
PRICE POINT WITHOUT SACRIFICING QUALITY
When designing, sourcing, and building the S2 Series, PRS was excited to build quality instruments that were both inspired by the Core line but also truly new for PRS. Along with designing the instruments, they designed new manufacturing techniques. This new streamlined process reduced the amount of manufacturing hours with no compromise to the integrity of the instruments.
Neck construction: On the PRS S2 series, the neck begins with a quartersawn mahogany neck blank. That blank is cut, the headstock is scarfed, and the heel is built up using a plain splice. (A scarf joint is made up of two pieces of wood that are cut at complementary angles and glued together. A plain splice is a joining of two pieces of wood in the same line). These construction methods allow them to start with a smaller amount of raw materials, and the increased glue surface area results in a very strong joint. In addition to this technique, they also fret and radius the fretboard before joining it to the neck, which results in a very efficient, cohesive manufacturing process that creates a durable, comfortable, playable neck.
New finish process: The entire S2 Series incorporates a new finish system where the color coat is embedded under a polyester basecoat and completed with an ultra–thin layer of acrylic urethane topcoat.
