    I see that PRS updated the current model section of their website today.

    They have a 20th Anniversary Singlecut and Singlecut Tremolo too.

    Good for them. It's good to see.

    Yes, I have some G.A.S., but it's under control, at least for the moment. :D

    What does this mean for the law suit?

    The lawsuit is over. Go here and read what the PRS website has to say about it.

    There is a thread in this section, Guitars in General, that discussed it.

    The court reversed the judgement in favor of PRS, they can build and sell their singlecut guitars once again.

    cool idea but personally i feel it's alittle silly doing 20th Anniversary models that did not even exist 20 years ago

    I can see your point, but am not sure that PRS intended it to be seen that way.

    I think PRS is commemorating and celebrating their 20th year with some special features and apporintments on certain guitars, whether or not they were actually in production 20 years ago.

    After all of the crap they went through with the lawsuit I think it is OK with me if they want to make a special edition of the SC.

    I agree with Axemeister.

    By the way, the Custom 22, just like the Singlecut, didn't exist 20 years ago either.

    I bought a 20th Anniversary Standard 24 and I am loving it. :RoCkIn I like it better than my '87 Standard 24. Not that the '87 is bad, it's just the improvements that PRS made are good improvements.

    It took awhile for me to decide if I should buy a Custom or Standard, and I am glad I went with the Standard. I have enough guitars with a maple cap. I didn't need another one. I needed something different.

    If they did a 20th Anniversary Standard with a BRW or IRW neck, that would have made my decision a little harder.:confused: ;)

    Any idea when we might see the singlecuts (trem, standard and 20th anniv) in stores?

    My guess would be 3 months, give or take.

    I was told my std 24 would take 4 - 6 months, I got it in 3.

    There are too many variables to list here. They did start production right away, so one never really knows for sure. ;)

    You'll see a brief surge in a few weeks (they'll finish the ones they were working on when the injunction came down) and then don't expect to see a lot till the Spring...
