    PRS in Chase bank commercials

    Have you guys seen these? There's a guy strumming a blue PRS (Not sure which model) singing about the bank, doing the ad. Each time I've seen it, the sound wasn't up too high, and I've never seen it from start to finish. Kind of a pale black and white video with the blue guitar mirroring Chase's color being the only color in the video.

    Cool stuff though. Can't find it on youtube yet (everything ends up there, so someday....)

    Lots of chatter about that ad....the blue guitar really stands out in the (IIRC) B&W commercial.

    Well for one thing it's a PS no doubt with that blue eagle inlay! I think an ebony f-board?

    Its just a modified production 2 off - they made one for the commercial and one for the chairman of Chase. The color was custom mixed to match the Chase Freedom Card color - thats not video editing.

    There were two guitars made for Chase. One of them is bound to hit the streets.

    I was told that someone brought one of these Chase guitars to CME when Paul was up there doing a clinic a few weeks ago. Any truth to that folks? Any pics?

    You'll be happy to know that's not the only PRS guitar used on a commercial, guys.

    I've used PRS on LOTS of them -- only for the music, not the video.

    As PRS and the gods of music intended.
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.
