Another one from the Château PGC vault! Today we have a 2007 PRS Corvette Standard 22 model. This one in particular is from a very limited run of less than 50 guitars. It is the PRS Corvette Standard Ron Fellows model.
PRS presented NASCAR racing driver Ron Fellows with a one-off Corvette Standard 22 guitar to commemorate his career. The guitar is painted to match his Corvette race car. The new Corvette was unveiled at the 2007 Chicago Auto Show and PRS was there to present Mr. Fellows, who is also a guitar player, with this instrument. After the event PRS received a lot of requests to build this guitar and they did a limited production run. This guitar is a hard to find and highly collectible instrument.
The PRS Corvette Standard 22 Ron Fellows features a carved mahogany body, 25” mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard with Z06 inlay. The headstock is equipped with PRS 14:1 locking tuners. Electronics: 2 dragon II pickups, volume-, tone control and a five -way rotary pickup selector. This one has a PRS stoptail bridge, some models feature an optional PRS tremolo bridge.
In the next days I will put it up for sale on Reverb. The guitar is in mint condition and comes with original hardshell case and hangtags.
