Maybe this guy also needs a bit of a history lesson? Since 1955, what were the major developments that F&G made to their products to change them in the marketplace. Eric Clapton model - awesome guitar Set Neck F's - total flop Photo Flame finish - bomb o rama Robo tuners - Mr, Lobotomy Alex Lifeson Axxess Les Paul - awesom guitar The Marauder, flying v, moderne The sand blasted strat - why would anyone buy one. My point is that after this very short list, the guitars are basically the same as they were with minor tweaks here and there. Now lets go to the PRS side of the coin. Tuners that stay in tune Tremelo that stays in tune multiple body, scale and neck shape All levels of finish Looks from retro to modern good pickups successful set necks and bolt ons. Not many dogs but a lot of innovation here.
