Ok how about a bit of fun? Make up a rumour about PRS (the guitars, amps or company, leave the man outta this one), the crazier the better! Remember this is all in good fun and none of it is to be taken seriously.

I heard that PRS are intentionally dropping a few of their quality control checks to "be more like the competition"...

PRS believes Carbon Fibre Banjo Ukeleles with Auto-Tune technology is the future

Artist Package upgrades include a digital freestanding lampost incase a certain little lady walks by or an an Artist Grade '50 top' made from fifty shades of grey (Dubbed the 'erotica top' in an attempt to appeal to the ladies) and buffed to perfection by a break dancing Emperor Penguin.

I heard a rumor the Paul Smith is actually Dr. Drew and that his entire company is a coverup for his addiction to Brazlian Rosewood. Skitchy is actually in charge of interventions.

How about a few I've really been told by salesmen at Guitar Center, though not at the same time:

"No PRS guitars are really made in the US, they are all made in China or Korea."
"All PRS designs are copies of Gibson models. The doublecut is a design Gibson didn't use because it's so ugly and unbalanced."
"PRS buys all of the wood they use from Gibson, it's the wood Gibson rejected, they sell it to PRS."

I heard through a thin wall that all employees will receive a shiny new Starla in a finish of their choice AND have their chairs upgraded to Herman Millers.

I also have heard, but cannot confirm, that Paul can HEAR the difference between truss rod cover fonts.

PRS to introduce the 'Flying Z' in 2014. Rumoured to be four better than Gibsons iconic Flying V, it features a single angled P90, stoptail bridge and a choice of metallic finishes.

PRS combine levitating magnetic superconductor technology with 408s so there's only one pickup, but it can be freely moved anywhere between the bridge and neck (including height and angle) and then locked into place with a mini toggle.

Paul can hear the difference if you hold your pick with the logo towards your thumb or your fingers.

Also, PRS will announce at Summer NAMM a line of redesigned Explorer guitars, with the shape adjusted to be identical to a PRS double-cut.

Oh, and Paul can listen to an MP3 and tell you if the amplifier was put in standby mode first or flipped directly to on.

New for 2013: PRS CE Kit Guitar -

Shipments will begin on 4/1/13 for the resurrected PRS CE. This iteration will be sold in a new kit format. Various components will be randomly pulled from part bins and placed in a large reinforced cardboard box. In some cases the new owner may reach in and pull out a Brazilian Rosewood Neck or maybe even Pernambuco. No two kits will be alike. In some cases you may need to route the body or use body filler depending on which pickups you end up with. Each component will be tested and certified to function within certain parameters that may change without notice. Check with your local Walmart for more details!!

I gotta go off topic for one moment.....back circa 10/82 we got the call from "Toys R Us"....the cabbage patch dolls we had reserved 3 months ago had just come in.....$39 bucks a piece, IIRC for a doll that was selling for $200 "on the black market at the time". We arrived....went to the back...got our three (3) reserved dolls....paid for them...and were almost crushed by the masses who literally tried to pry them from our hands as we attempted to get back to the car....at the time, my now soon to be 31 y/o son was about 8 months old and the dolls were supposed to be for him....as it turns out, they still sit in their original cases.....with their original adoption papers....and the entire purchasing experience....to me....represents a great memory of how I envision the mogul hordes must have looked to their enemies. What an experience!!

OK...back to rumors...here's a related one...Paul is trading a new Private Stock for 3 original Cabbage Patch Dolls. That's the deal I made on my most recent build!

Paul is retiring to Bora Bora where he will have a permainant room in a 5 star hotel to run seminars on the "rules of tone" to a vacationing travelers. He will share the suite with the Hotel's official Chiropractor.

PRS are working on a 3 channel amp, with several modes per channel, incorporating the best of the PRS amp line in one amp, switchable eq, solo boost, fx loop, tube or solid state rectification, pentode/triode and variable wattage. It will be released at Exp14, where I will come and buy the first cab off the ranks.

I heard from a friend working at a Dutch silver alloy manufacturer that PRS are on the verge of releasing their non-ferro-coil pick-ups; they'll probably be called the 60/14 and 62/14, by using an alloy of silver/aluminum/zinc. This AgAlZn coil produces slightly less output than conventional pickups, but the tone is supposed to be very "organic". The pick-up is wound with metal tape instead of round wire, in a low number of windings - only a few dozen, I've been told. I think the pickup numbers means there's both a single-coil with 60 windings, and a double coil with 2x60, to be released into production early next year - although the numbers could have a different meaning. I hope to be able to get two pre-production models for my Santana SE coming autumn!
