    Ever notice that if a guitar is meant to sound "Fender-y" the manufacturer paints it with a tri-tone burst? Same goes for a sunburst and "Gibsonesque" guitars.... PRS does it too.
    never gave much thought about that until you mentioned it! PRS also exclusively offer those special inlays and flashy maple tops, until one point where you don't really see a lot of plain top Private Stocks floating around! Even the core models are mostly flamed top. and from then on, no matter which manufacturer or luthier-made, all guitars with exotic flame tops and (probably) natural bindings are labelled as ripping off PRS's design.
