Welcome to the PRS Official Forum’s first contest! We will be hosting contests periodically throughout the year - each contest is open to PRS Forum members only.


Each member will be allowed to post one entry per contest. PRS Guitars will choose the finalists, and then forum members will cast their votes to choose the contest winner. Each member gets one vote per contest. Due to international laws, PRS Forum Contests are restricted to the fifty United States (including the District of Columbia). No Purchase Necessary. Void where prohibited. For you lawyer types, here is a link to the official rules.
http://prsguitars.com/forum/showthread.php?4621-Official-Contest-Rules


The theme for the inaugural contest will be “Cars and Guitars.” Post a picture of your PRS guitar or amp along with your car. Entries to begin at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time ("ET") on May 3rd and end at 11:59 p.m. ET on May 15th. Then the judging will begin! We’ll be back with the Finalists around May 22nd, then it will be your turn to vote for the winner. The winner gets this Exclusive PRS Book and DVD created for the Japanese market. Sure it is written in Japanese, but it has tons of cool photos and specs.

Be creative and have fun!

Shawn...to be clear...does it have to be one's "OWN CAR" or can it be a photo of a PRS paired with a car....any car. Just want to know if I'm out of the running before it even starts.

The photo must be your own, it can't be something lifted from the internet or taken by another person. You can borrow someone's car if you need a lift though.

Phenny, you might want to explain why you consider those Natty beasts 'reptiles'!

The two outside private stocks each have snakewood fretboards, and are the first two private stocks I ever owned/ordered. The Santana also has snakewood "Santana stripes." They are in fact the first two PRSi with snakewood. The other two items are self-explaining (snake and dragon).

Haha! I was driving past some car dealers today and couldn't help peeking to see if they had any that matched my guitars.
I wonder if they get a lot of people wanting to take a "test drive" with their guitar?

Can I get an official opinion as to whether or not my photo is within the rules? After reading (most of) the rules I'm concerned about "promoting an unsafe or dangerous activity" and "third party logos and trademarks".

I'm glad Jesse asked to see this photo, because it lead me to discover that the folder it was in had escaped my filtering and indexing and might have otherwise been lost.
Anyways, taken as a quick joke on Brent: a guitar with NOT a car

Imagine what the future will be like when these girls start dating and they bring their guitar playing boyfriends home.... birth control will be completely unneeded, the guys will be too distracted by the harems of PRS guitars, and they will start asking: "So babe, when are we going to go visit your grandpa Markie?"

We got home a bit early for dinner after visiting a guitar store, so thought we'd have some fun before the rain comes tomorrow. Yes, I know only one entry is allowed, but they seemed like fun photos and who better to share them with.

Anybody else have someone who will buy you a guitar to match their hair?

I'm going to weenie out and use this photo since it has been raining around here everyday for a week. This is the first nice day and I have to wear a suit and the grass still can't be cut, so no driving into the yard for another glamor shot. :biggrin: Mother nature is thumbing her nose at me. :mad:
