Up for sale, a 2012 Paul Reed Smith SE Singlecut Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series electric guitar in near mint condition and in perfect working order. Following the tradition of awarding race winners in the Daytona Prototype and Grand Touring classes with a very special, fully-functional trophy guitar, PRS has made this emblem of speed available to the public. Featuring custom Grand-Am Road Racing inlay on the slab rosewood fretboard, a solid mahogany body with a bookmatched flame maple cap and custom Grand-Am graphics, and a pair of PRS-designed humbuckers, this guitar is geared for quick runs and rubber-burning riffs. The pickups offer a broad tonal palette, from heavy chunk and searing cut to more spanky, jangly tonalities with a great percussive snap. Featherweight at 6lbs 15oz, this SE Singlecut Grand-AM benefits from a pit stop here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with fast action, accurate intonation, and fresh 10-46 strings.
The mahogany neck features PRS's signature Wide Fat profile, offering an effortless feel with ideal substance, measuring .840” deep at the 1st fret and .910” at the 12th. The slab rosewood fretboard is a tight-grained cut with custom Grand-Am Road Racing inlay and pristine medium jumbo fretwire. The guitar plays easily up the straight neck, with a comfortably contoured cutaway and a 9 1/2” fretboard radius. The scale length measures 25”, and the nut is a full 1 11/16“ in width. The headstock features the factory chrome PRS tuners which turn smoothly and hold pitch well.
On the body, the stock electronics work as they should, with a three-way pickup selector toggle and Master Volume and Tone controls for the pair of humbuckers. The chrome hardware is positively gleaming, and plastics include black speed knobs and pickup rings. Cosmetically, there is virtually no wear to report, with pristine Grand-Am graphics and a stately transparent Emerald Green finish framing the tight, dimensional ripples of bookmatched tiger flame figuring extending evenly across the top. The neck profile sports a flawless smooth gloss finish.
A well-padded like-new gigbag is included.
