2017 Paul Reed Smith PRS S2 Vela Reclaimed Wood Limited Edition Electric Guitar

Peroba Rosa Top Semi-Hollow Brauna Preto Board
Rare - only approximately 600 were made and these sold out very quickly from stores. Mint condition with all original accessories.

Check out the pictures to see actual condition of this exact guitar.

You may see some artifacts in the pickguard, this is in fact due to the original plastic still covering the pickguard and are only side-effects of photography. The pickguard will look perfect after the original plastic covering is peeled off. Also the wood color will look a tad softer in person, due to the highlights from the photography lights the color looks a little more saturated in the photos than it would under normal lighting.
PRS Guitars is proud to offer a small batch of “Reclaimed Limited” instruments that showcases two exotic wood species new to PRS: Peroba Rosa and Brauna Preto. This reclaimed wood, which is native to southeastern Brazil’s Atlantic Forest, is typically more than 100 years old. PRS Guitars Senior Wood Manager, Michael Reid, sourced these woods from old buildings, noting that their density, unique aesthetic, and history would lend them to guitar making.

“Michael has been sourcing wood for me and the company since before there was an official ‘PRS Guitars.’ Wood is our lifeblood, and I trust Michael’s instincts. This old, reclaimed wood is wonderfully resonant and beautiful. Hearing these guitars now, I just have to smile knowing Michael was right again,” said Paul Reed Smith.

Peroba Rosa, typically used as siding, was selected for the top wood. The density of this wood combined with the semi-hollow body construction give the Reclaimed Limited CE24 Semi-Hollow and S2 Vela Semi-Hollow a unique sound that is punchy but also warm and full. Brauna Preto, typically used as the supporting posts of these old buildings, is used for the fretboards due to its tight-grain and sustain. These guitars are finished in Natural satin nitro. Any nail holes and any wear or discoloration have been left in the top wood to showcase its history. By leaving the Peroba in its most “original” form, every instrument is rendered unique with each top boasting its own character.

“The forest has come full circle, so to speak. I like to think using this wood showcases Brazil’s rich history of music and guitar making,” said Michael Reid, PRS Senior Wood Manager.

“Reclaiming these timbers also allows me to personally make a contribution to sustaining and celebrating Brazil’s resources.”
