Thank you that's a useful picture.
I agree 100% with everything you said.
I think the S2s really are the sweet spot for current PRS production. A McCarty is a nice guitar but just too expensive and too many have super fancy tops. But the Vela and the (now discontinued) Mira are great, and I liked the S2 Studio (HSS pickup configuration version of the S2 22) they had out last year.
I bought my Vela when they first came out with them. I liked it so much that I sold my 10 top SC250 that I never really bonded with. Then I bought the Reclaimed CE 24. Last year I got the S2 Studio. I like all 3 of these much more then my core model which I don’t miss at all.
S2s are still MIA, they tend to have MIK parts though. Nice guitars overall.
I dig that guitar, even the color, I too, never really got on with PRS guitars??
I like the look of it, too. It's one case where the headstock actually seems to complement the body shape rather than just looking weird to my eyes.
To each his own
I've got one. Absolutely superb guitar. I felt exactly the same way as the OP - never even considered playing a PRS, until I saw the Vela. I loved the retro-groovy look, the lack of birds and the sonic options. The neck pickup is Fender-y, the bridge like a hot LP in HB mode and Stratty tapped. I was really looking forward to playing it in the new-wave girl rock band I was due to join until the guy blew me out. It would have been perfect for that.
One thing you'll notice if you try one is that it is VERY light. Mine weighs five pounds something.
Has a retro space vibe about it. Almost like it could have been used in the Ballad of Bilbo Baggins video or Barbarella.
Like a Dan electro and a strat got together and fornicated. Great color and probably the nicest looking Prs I have seen.
I have admired many a PRS, but the neck never felt quite right.
I went out with the intention to buy one once, and came home with an SG instead.
this is my favorite strat killer right now.
PRS NF3, all korina body, maple neck, 3 narrowfield pickups, 5-way switch with great 2 and 3 tones, no bling, just tone! a hair over 7 lbs.
My local shop had on of these and the S2 studio. Absolutely great guitars. I am up to 3 PRS right now and need to get rid of one and should NOT be looking at this thread....
Only getting rid of one because I have a desire to own fewer guitars and play them more (also need cash for a new amp!)
It's a PRS that wants to be a danelectro, and while I like "traditional" PRSs, and I like Danos, this just makes zero sense to me
It's like a dentist convention in here...
I like the Vela. If I hadn't already bought my PRS I would have considered it. I found a Custom 408 that I just fell in love with, hence my PRS supply is filled, but if I hadn't found that one, there's been a few others that I would have bought. The Vela is one. And no, I'm not a dentist. I just like a great sounding, good looking guitar, which is why I have my PRS, and my Tele, and even a Les Paul of all things!
I couldn't find any bottom shots of this pickup, but those small slotted screws in fact raise and lower the pole slugs, yes?
Yes, they work like a typical Dynasonic. They aren't wound nearly as hot as a vintage one, though.
Got any bottom pics? I surprised I don’t see any wild adjustments on the slugs. I’m really into Dynas, I kinda want to try one of these pickups.
