Hello musicians,
I want to know your opinion about these 2 guitars. I'm going to buy one of them in a couple of months, and still thinking which one is more worth it? I wanna use this axe to play a bit of jazz, rock and blues.

your replies will be appreciated. Thank you

The S2 will be a better quality instrument

But I would get a used CE22/24 over the S2 They run $800-$1400 used and it is a proper PRS

i dont see the s2 as worth the money. they look and feel exactly like the SE series. i would rather just get an SE and drop new PUPs and locking tuners on it.

get a used actual PRS, CE. sometimes you can crab one for about 800-900 if you can swing that.

between the s2 and the thinline? id probably go with the thinline.

Those two guitars are different sounding & feel wise quite different too. Are these the only ones you can get your hands on at the moment which come under your budget?
#6
thank you for all your replies.
I'm considering those two guitars coz I love the sound and the feel on my hands. but I'm still saving up money.

SE ZechMayers looks very appealing , but I don't want a signature guitar.

I, too, am facing this dilemma, only I'm deciding between the MIM '72 Thinline and S2 Mira. I'm awaiting opinions.

I have tried Mira, and it felt cheap. If i were you I would choose the MIM thinline '72 :P

get a CE22/24 in your hands and you can tell it is 100% PRS quality you've heard and read about

I chose mine out of 12 PRS I tried and most were custom/McCarty's and the CE won on playability

I'll reserve any judgement before I try it for myself. I haven't had the chance to try the S2 Mira, but the demos sound great.

I've recently gotten into semi-hollows, I figure that after the Mira, I'll get myself a Gibson ES-335, since I prefer it to the Thinline '72 (MIM), anyway.

For jazz, rock and blues I'd prefer the Thinline Tele.

the S2 mira i played was the best guitar in the sam ash store in buffalo grove illinois recently.
was pretty shocked by that.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

You can find them, but they are very rare (PRS says they never made them, but I have seen a few floating around)

They were the cheapest PRS made back then, their "working mans guitar".

they're not their.

+1 though, if you can find a nice CE they are one of the best values on the used market at $800-1100.

In this case, I think the use of "their" is correct.

«They were (...) their "working man's guitar".»
As in «They were PRS's -- their -- "working man's guitar".»

But there's an apostrophe missing in "man's".

^ Yeah exactly in that context it is appropriate because it is showing ownership.

But I'll give it to Greg, my grammar can suck sometimes

CE is a leap above a S2 or an SE. i have a CE on my 'to buy list;, and the neck joint is not intrusive.

CE's are one of the few things left that are under wraps a litle bit and not spoken about as much, but they are great guitars.

Yeah mine is an excellent guitar, deff a keeper

I think it is the pre-96 models that have the smaller neck-heal if that is a problem, but mine is a 2002 and I have no issues at all

I'd give it a try for the CE when I find one. For now I think I got my answer, Fender thinline it is
