The Starla lives on in the form of the S2 Starla, part of PRS’s new, more affordable, USA-made S2 line. Each guitar is completely built, finished and inspected at PRS’s factory in Stevensville, Maryland with the same care and standards applied to the company’s higher-priced models. By making a few labor-saving alterations to the Starla’s original formula—such as a less sculpted top carve—PRS delivers an S2 that more folks can afford without sacrificing tone or playability.
