    Gibson didn't win the lawsuit, PRS SC guitars continue production, yadda yadda... They look pretty sweet methinks. I played one a couple of years ago and it was a fine instrument. Even had a different feel than my McCarty Rosewood- very fun and nice sounding guitar. Even before plugging it in, I was extremely impressed...

    Ummmm...where have you been for the last year? They had the decision reversed when it was taken to another court.

    And the Supreme Court of the Untied States refused to hear it, so PRS WON!

    Frankly, I am GLAD they did. They even conceded that "only an idiot" would confuse a PRS singlecut for a Gibson Les Paul.

    I think that Gibson was worried about PRS taking away some of their market share and instead of fighting PRS by increasing their quality control or other methods, they went after PRS for some stupid reason that they said the PRS singlecut could be taken for a Gibson les paul!

    It was idiotic and even Gibson had to admit it in court. Mabye now Gibson will be forced to actually try to compete with PRS and other guitar companies on a level playing field....rather than try to beat them in a lawsuit which had no merit.

    Here is a link if you are interested...

    Yeah I'm so glad gibson lost that one. I like their guitars for the most part but they're still a bunch of jerks. I like how prs is coming out with the 245 which is even more like a les paul. It's like they really want to stick it to gibson now.

    It made news all over the net, not just guitar forums.

    Yeah that 250 looks pretty cool. An ALTERNATIVE (Not the same) to and R9 IMO for probably half the price.

    Also 24.5 scale! Might be even MEATIER than the Gibby if they execute it right.

    Give that man a cigar! WE HAVE A WINNAH!!!

    You've guessed correctly.

    The new SE models will most likely be in stores before the US-produced new models, so you'll have your shot in a couple months I'd guess.
