    The April First Rumor Mill

    ... a clearing house for that thing you thought you saw or heard ...

    Rumor has it that the PRS factory will work on nothing but left handed guitars* today, thereby satisfying the market needs for half the year...





    * only a few players are good enough to play left handed. ( don't want to get in Dutch with my south paw brethren! )

    Gibson is now part of PRS. Les Pauls will now have to go through a QC process before shipping to retailers.

    The PRS R&D department read that one other thread and have decided to market the PRS HANGAR18 Signature Model guitar and I'll be visiting the factory later this month to receive the very first one and personally sign the back of the headstocks of the first 25 production models.

    PRS has now decided to reduce it's entire line to 60 variations of the SC245 and 50 variations of the S2 Miras covering all price points. It's also decided to become a life-style brand by changing it's focus from making guitars to t-shirts and wallets.

    PRS will start using felt pads on strap buttons. In other news, sweet switch washers are still under discussion.

    Kent Island/Stevensville has been annexed by Russia.

    Me too.

    But you know, it would be in line with the company's continuing devotion to innovation. How many female builders are there out there? Paula might be the first.

    Changing it to HENRY would have been really cruel - but it would have tied into Mike's post above!
