PRS taps reclaimed exotic woods for Limited CE 24 & S2 Vela Semi-Hollow guitars

PRS has unveiled a pair of electric guitars sourced from reclaimed exotic woods: the Reclaimed Limited CE 24 Semi-Hollow and S2 Vela Semi-Hollow.

The woods used are Peroba Rosa and Brauna Preto, native to southeastern Brazil's Atlantic Forest, which were sourced from old buildings and are likely over 100 years old.

Peroba Rosa provides the top woods; its density pairs with the guitars' semi-hollow construction for a sound that's “punchy but also warm and full”, according to PRS.

Tight-grained Brauna Preto, meanwhile, is used for the fretboards, while body wood is a more traditional mahogany.

600 Reclaimed Limited models will be made, but you'll need to place your order between 9 March and 30 April. See PRS Guitars for more info.
