Hello! Jack Higginbotham here – President of PRS Guitars. I recently returned from the Rolex 24 at Daytona, our partner IMSA’s most high-profile racing event. I have not attended this race in a few years since the NAMM show (the music/gear industry’s largest tradeshow) and the Rolex have traditionally landed on the same weekend, so it felt somewhat nostalgic to land at the tiny Daytona airport and make my way back to the track. Here is a bit of a story about the weekend…

As the official acoustic guitar of the Vans Warped Tour presented by Journeys, PRS Guitars would like to thank all our fans, the BandHappy folks, and our Warped tour artists, including the Full Sail University Acoustic Basement artists for backing our guitars and putting them through the paces on a nationwide tour.
