The S2 Story

Meaning “Stevensville 2,” the S2 Series was named for a second manufacturing line that was created inside the PRS Stevensville, Maryland shop back in 2013. Since then, the S2 Series has grown to be fully integrated into the same production line as PRS Core and Bolt-On instruments. Still, the signature of the S2 Series remains fresh designs and bold tone for serious players. Now with more PRS DNA than ever, the S2 Series proudly comes with USA-made pickups and electronics.
