Come on in to our showroom in Seattle to experience one of the newest designs from Mr. Paul Reed Smith. We have the largest selection of PRS guitars in the Northwest, from the SE line to the exclusive Artist Package designs!
Anchored by PRS playability and craftsmanship, the Vela is perfect for players who want PRS build quality and reliability with a fresh aesthetic. The Vela is the maiden voyage into an offset body shape for PRS and is both elegant and edgy. Loaded with a PRS-designed Starla humbucker in the bridge and the newly designed PRS Type-D single coil in the neck, the Vela has a bright, punchy tone that sounds great plugged into your pedalboard or straight into an amp. A coil-tap on the tone control allows the Starla pickup to split into singlecoils and explore a whole new range of tones. The newly designed plate-style bridge holds two brass saddles specifically designed for great sustain and perfect intonation so both rhythm and lead tones sound great no matter where you are on the fretboard.
In the studio or on the stage, you won’t want to leave this guitar at home.
