PRS has done some commendable stuff in regards to moving some things forward. But, on the whole, PRS is very much a retro themed guitar company now. I don't know what your definition of "forward thinking" is. To me, the Parker Fly was an example of that. The first Steinbergers another. The Music Man Majesty is a modern example of something forward thinking. Then you have what Kiesel is doing with headless, multiscale, finishes, etc that are all looking to the future.
I had a Steinberger in the 80s, 35 or so years ago.
The Parker Fly was first produced nearly 30 years ago. Multiscale guitars have been around for a long time, too.
So what makes you believe the future is in headless, multi scale guitars? That stuff is all from a previous generation, and very few players are into them. Of course, that doesn't mean they're bad ideas, it simply means they don't sell well. Have you bought a multi scale, headless guitar yourself?
What do people seem to want? Well, they respond extremely well to traditional guitars. Maybe there are reasons for that. My son and his friends, who are considerably younger than you, and play professionally, are into vintage stuff. Yet they're far from vintage style players. Maybe vintage stuff points the way to what serious players and amateur players actually want to play?
Electric guitar playing is a mature art form. Just as with orchestral instruments, piano, organ, and others, mature art forms tend to cleave to mature types of instruments because they produce a certain sound. While there's a tremendous amount of innovation in orchestral writing and performing, orchestral instruments that are hundreds of years old are still being used and reproduced because they fit the art form.
Traditional electric guitars fit the art form of most players, regardless of style. The only thing truly new about the Music Man Majesty is how it looks (if you like that kind of appearance, more power to ya), and there are a few little electronic tweaks that don't amount to a hill of beans.
You want innovation? How about Narrowfield pickups, 408 pickups, TCI pickups, tuning machines that have been reinvented in several generations, a Gen III bridge that's only a few years old, and of course one could go on and on about what PRS has brought to the electric guitar.
What is it you'd actually like to spend your hard-earned cash on that PRS isn't already making? Just curious.
