    It's definitely disappointing when they do this. I was sold on the latest run of Bernies and would definitely buy one if they were available in the US. I understand it's all about reading the market, but it still a bit frustrating.

    Meh, they’re not like, Bonni Pink or something that rad.

    That’s a waste, everyone knows Japan is where the good sh!t is.

    Definitely have to agree with Sergio on this. Japan gets the good stuff.

    Each dealer or distributor can do a special run for their particular market or store. The EU distributor has requested these colors for the European market. I know some US dealers have done exclusive edition SE's for their stores as well.

    The blame lays on us, and by us I mean you guys.

    If y’all bought more guitars that didn’t come from the color palate of a men’s sock selection at Kohl’s a dealer would order some different colors.

    Seriously.

    If you've tried to buy a car recently, or just looked around the streets, you'll see that vibrant colors are anathema to the American consumer. White, black, 4 shades of gray/silver, and maybe a muted red or blue.

    So, you're saying we should buy more guitars with the color palate of the womens "intimates" selection at Kohl's?

    Because they aren't just women's 'intimates' colours. And because they a lot more cheerful looking than the stealth matt grey we had earlier this year. (And magenta would have been an awesome addition to the collection if anyone from PRS wants an idea)

    I just went through this. Took me forever to find a lively car color.

    There are lots of guitars marked USA only. I don’t mind if some go the other way.
