    Idiot is selling PRS Signature stickers

    This ebay store is selling stickers with Pauls signature on hjtem, they make an SE look like a USA made guitar. I reported the seller to ebay.

    working on your own guitar is one thing but to SELL a product with another companies name on it is NOT O.K. I'm sure Paul probably has a copyright on his famous signature. Unless of course he has PRS's permission.

    Correct. Not okay. It's a Registered Trademark.

    Those are really poor for the price - it looks like vinyl that covers the WHOLE headstock and not just a signature overlay. Hopefully the ridiculous $40 price tag keeps everyone at bay.

    Yeah, my 15"x20" custom made sticker/wrap was about that much for two of 'em.

    Those look pretty poor. Not a fan of that kind of thing but I appreciate those that have done it on here have no intentions of misleading anyone and are just making their guitars look and sound how they want them.

    i think they're pretty much like all those aftermarket decals people stick on their tricked-out cars, so it's not really a big problem, for me, that is. Of course, it's just for looks, you won't have an instant USA PRS by sticking that on the headstock

    You mean to tell me that my $500 SE won't turn into a $5000 USA after I put the decal on it?!

    Someone needs to tell the seller that the little R with a circle around it isn't there for looks.

    This was just posted yesterday. It takes a little time for the legal team to draft a letter and mail it.

    I suspect eBay will just yank it. Happened to me once.

    I contacted the seller and he said he's o.k. because there are small subtle differences and not an exact replica.

    Just send him the link to this thread. Watch him snatch that eBay auction like a weave in a cat fight.

    I would suggest we let PRS speak for themselves on that one.
