Apparently published in October, but I just read about it in an e-mail from Guitar Player. Maybe it's just been updated. Either way, I'm probably going to pick it up.

The new Paul Reed Smith Pocket Guide is the only book that includes all the company's electric guitars, bass guitars, acoustic guitars, and amplifiers with up-to-date values. Includes detailed information on all new and discontinued PRS guitars and amplifiers with accurate values based on condition.
 
This isn't a slant against the sellers... I can't help but wonder how accurate their data might be.

Was anyone here involved with the creation of that book? Even hear about it?

I'm looking forward to seeing it.

I am highly suspicious. Printed price guides are pretty useless anyway. It will be out of date by the time it is printed.
 
I didn't realize it was just a price guide. I was hoping it would be a PRS book.

Not interested.
 
Should have qualified - I haven't actually seen the book. It sounds primarily like a price guide, but it also sounds like it has model info.

From Guitar Player:

Blue Book Publications is excited to announce its newest reference and value guide in an all-new convenient pocket-sized layout! Dedicated to only PRS guitars and amps, the Paul Reed Smith Pocket Guide contains detailed specifications for everything Paul Reed Smith as well as used values. Features:

• Retail pricing for all currently produced guitars including the 100%/New price indicating what you should expect to pay for a new PRS
• Up to seven different used values for each model based on the overall condition of the guitar/amp
• All PRS serialization to accurately date a PRS instrument

All major series are included: the Standard Series, Custom Series, McCarty Series, Singlecut Series, and the Santana Series.
