Wtf happened to this forum? When did it become a breeding ground for whiny people complaining about MAP and acting like PRS is trying to screw over the customer? What’s next? Is someone going to start asking questions about why the 594 they bought second hand from a crappy picture online doesn’t meet their expectations to replace an authentic guitar they bought when they were 20 years old for less money, but they regrettably had to sell because they needed money for their dog’s cancer treatment?
That was the best f’n guitar video I have seen in ages. The dude loves that guitar. He put out a limited number of a slightly tweaked version of what so many people already love. Celebrate it and get one if you think it’s right for you. And nobody is going to complain if you don’t. Nobody is going to complain if you buy something else.
Well, we all can have a slightly bad day and this announcement/thread happened to provide much needed comical entertainment. For that, I am sorry.
You know the irony ? I did the same when the Paul's 85 got announced. Two months later I got one (although I had to return that due to shipping trauma).
It'd be hilarious if I ended up with that one too; very unlikely but I probably thought the same about the P85 back then.
As for 'acting like PRS is trying to screw over the customer': their mistake, they may want to get the specs right in the first place to avoid the perception of an inflated price. Considering the clarification from Brian, it does make a bit more sense now.
Alright... off to create an account on the Gibson forum. I'm sure they must be a having quite a day there.
