CHICAGO - On February 8th, the aisles at the McCormick Place in Chicago will be filled with auto
enthusiasts from across the world where Chevrolet will introduce a special edition Ron Fellows Corvette.

PRS Guitars began sponsorship of the Corvette Racing team during the 2005 racing season. PRS logos will
be seen again on the cars for the 2007 season opener at the 12 hours of Sebring. The Maryland based guitar
manufacturer built approximately 400 custom Corvette Z06 branded guitars in 2005 and 2006, offered in
identical colors as the Z06 Corvettes and incorporated an inlayed Z06 fingerboard.
PRS will present a custom guitar to Ron in commemoration of his career. The guitar, based on the PRS
Corvette standard 22, features a paint scheme that matches Ronís signature Corvette. PRS is also pleased
that the guitar will be appreciated by Ron, a guitarist who already owns a Paul Reed Smith. "Having a
car named after me is amazing...having a one-off guitar made to commemorate this moment makes it even more
special. Let's face it, I'm just a Neil Young wannabe. I love music; this instrument will have a great
home in my growing collection of wonderful guitars," says Ron Fellows.
Jack Higginbotham, President of PRS Guitars adds "We have enjoyed a great synergistic
relationship with Corvette and the Corvette Racing Team. High performance, made in America, high quality
and an aspirational appeal are just some of the common ties that help to form the partnership. We own
Corvettes, put them on track, and enjoy the performance and quality that has been engineered into the
cars. We hope that owners of PRS guitars derive the same pleasure as we do from our Corvettes."
The GM Racing-PRS Guitars partnership extends through March 2008. Images of the Corvette guitars can
