First time PRS owner, tell me what does the TM mean at the end of the 58/15 pickup engraving?

    New to the PRS world, although I have been playing for thirty years. Got myself a new mccarty. It is a 2015 that was still in stock at a shop here in SLC. Loving the guitar. Just wondering what the TM stands for at the end of the pickup inscription. Are these similar to the new LT I have read about on the forum?

    Cheers, MJ

    That wasn’t really Markie. It was Ann Landers.

    Couldn’t have been. Ann Landers is too profane.

    Despite all the rather hilarious responses, indeed TM = Trademark.

    Dunno whether any other designations were actually trademarked.
