    I got a NOS 2018 S2 Standard 22 for quite a deal just before this price increase. It makes the deal I got even better.

    On a slight tangent, noticed some SE models went up in price too.

    Is there some part of this that is difficult to understand?

    There's not a lot of mod action after Shawn left.

    And why should there be? It’s an arbitrary and completely ridiculous ‘rule’.

    A guitar costs what it costs, and the prices are public knowledge and in the public domain, so why block people from talking about it? Stupid.

    If I understand it correctly, the rule applies more to people quoting prices paid for a particular guitar, such as "Hey, the Custom 22 MAPs for $3850 but I just got one a Julie's guitars for $3000 out the door." If my understanding of the intention of the rule is correct, we ARE permitted to say "what is the current MPA of a Custom 22?" and someone answer that. Or, "did the MAP prices just go up on the S2 Custom 24?" or something like that. I think we're allowed to discuss prices in general, and state MAP, but if I understand the rule was made more so that one guy isn't going "I just paid $3500 for my new Custom 24 at xyz store" and then another says "hey, you should go to abc store instead, I just got one for $3000" and things like that.

    I don't think the intent of the rule was that we couldn't even tell someone what MAP was on a given guitar. But rather that they don't want people discussing discounts/prices they got compared to MAP prices in the forum.

    I based this on answering someone asking for a good price on a guitar, and my stating what I paid for one of my new guitars, back when I first came here (and didn't know this rule yet), and being told pretty quickly by a moderator not to discuss that and why, and asked to remove the price I posted, because I had received a significant discount.

    Supply chain still not repaired, prices of many things we love are rising.

    This is how I always interpreted the rule.
    Don’t forget - their house, their rules. Period.

    Absolutely, agree. I was addressing those who think the rules is meant to stop us from even answering a question about MAP prices, etc. I think they are cool with that. What they don't want is "this store discounts more than that store" or "so and so just sold me one for X% off" type comments.

    And that as a "Rule" would make sense. But to cut off any discussion of MAP prices would not seem to be very "constructive". Yes PRS would not want their Forum to degenerate into a discussion as to what dealer was cutting prices the most . No manufacturer wants to be in the middle of dealers in a discount war.

    But if we have misunderstood, I'm sure The Forum Police will tell us.

    BTW, this price increase has hit every brand that I shop for. "Inflation" ... is like that.. Its a reflection of the relative value of currency, and when it is worth less than before ,,, Prices go up ...
