Corvette Gets The Axe

PRS GuitarsThe headline Autoblog.com used to for this story was just too sweet to pass up. As they said, now that we have your attention… Back in 2005, PRS Guitars joined forces with CorvetteRacing.com. The PRS name appeared on the new C6.R racecar during the 2005 race season, and PRS would craft a custom designed Corvette Z06 guitar. The guitars became available last year. But like many things in the blogosphere, old news can become new again, and so here we are talking about the PRS Corvette Standard 22. From the PRS Guitar Website:

The new Z06 Corvette is based on the C6 which came to market as an ’05model. The Z06 is loaded with a modern small block 427 cubic inch engine which is rated at 500 rear wheel horsepower giving the car an awesome combination of power and luxury. The Corvette Standard 22 is available in the same six colors that will be offered on the 2006 Z06. The guitar is also offered with two inlay configurations, 427 logo on the fretboard and an optional Z06 logo inlaid on the fretboard. The trademark crossed flags and clear control knobs on the body round out the theme. The guitars should start shipping slightly ahead of their automotive counterparts.
The guitars are available in Corvette colors including Black, Daytona Sunset Orange, Le Mans Blue, Machine Silver, Velocity Yellow and Victory Red. Retail price is $4,700. Source: Paul Reed Smith Guitars via Autoblog.com
