PRS Guitars, a U.S. manufacturer of electric guitars, in conjunction with Sonicbids, has announced their first ever Guest Reviewer Contest. Designed to help launch the 2016 PRS Guitars S2 and SE product lineup, the 30-year-old guitar and amplifier company is reaching out to unsigned guitarists through the Sonicbids social platform to find three players with that special knack for playing and demonstrating guitars for the public.
“There are lots of great emerging guitarists out there whose voice and input about guitars would be helpful to other players,” explained Jeanne Nooney, PRS Guitars Public Relations Manager. “As a manufacturer, we’re excited to meet these up-and-coming players and add their unique viewpoints to our website and social channels for all to see.”
The contest is open to all unsigned U.S. Sonicbids guitarists. Interested players will submit a short video utilizing an electric guitar. Players should talk about the guitar they are demonstrating and why they should be chosen to review the new PRS gear. PRS Guitars’ Marketing Team will select 15 semi-finalists. The PRS Marketing Manager and Public Relations Manager will then choose three winners from the semi-finalists. Each of the PRS Sonicbids Guest Reviewer Contest winners will receive a free S2 or SE guitar of their choice from the new PRS 2016 product lineup (valued between $629 and $1,579) to keep and to use as the subject of a new guitar review for PRS’s 2016 model lineup. Reviews will be published on PRS’ website and social channels as well as the Sonicbids blog, giving these emerging artists an international audience of guitar players and music enthusiasts.
The deadline to apply is Dec. 15.
