Not Just Another Pretty Trophy – This One Rocks!

June 16th, 2014 by admin

Did you know that the new PRS IMSA Trophy guitar that you have seen presented at the end of each of IMSA’s TUDOR United SportsCar Championship and North American Endurance Cup races is actually a PRS S2 Singlecut guitar branded with the IMSA logo? We make all of our S2 Series guitars at our manufacturing facility in Maryland. The process, from start to finished instrument, takes about 6-9 weeks and the result is one of the most rockin’ trophies you’d ever see…or hear.

Checkout PRS buddy, Rhett Smith’s video showing just what a PRS S2 Singlecut can do:

The PRS IMSA S2 Trophy Guitars can only be had by winning a race but anyone interested in trying the non-IMSA branded version can hop in to an authorized PRS dealer and check out one themselves. You’ll find that S2 Singlecuts are available in 7 colors including Antique White, Black, Black Cherry, Blue Crab Smokeburst, Dark Cherry Burst, McCarty Tobacco Sunburst and the color used for the Trophy guitars, Gray Black.

Crank it up!
