    Make no mistake, all brands have traditionalists, PRS included.

    Paul just doesn't let that get to him. I give him full credit for running PRS how it is.

    Loving Lari's signature, what an awesome guitar. I am wondering about the pickup config on the Prestige AZS's though - no hate to Ibanez, I think these models are a great move, but wondering if we will see HSS on those in the future.

    New Julian Lage sig!!!

    I know this isn't gonna be a "hit" on this forum, but I'm very excited for this. I've been mulling over a Collings I-30 as my big purchase for the year, but this much more unique. And Ron Ellis pickups? Yes please.

    Not my style of guitar but i've seen Julian Lage live (back when live concerts were a thing, been a year since the last one i've seen...), what a unbelievable guitar player. Made me almost buy a Telecaster some days after concert.
    He deserves a siganture, to bad it's not a Tele;)

    Julian is on another level, like “we’re lucky to have him playing the instrument” level.

    Good god what a monster musician.

    Collings...hell yes!

    They still need to move the volume knob.

    Why can't more companies do something like the EBMM JP/Majesty control layout? It's basically perfect.

    PRS clearly has no problem selling every guitar they make, so I'm not worried about them, regardless of the people whining here (including my own criticisms).

    I put a rubber washer under the volume knob on my Charvel and really crushed it in there. The volume knob now only turns if I grip it and turn it with two fingers.. volume swells are out of the question but it's an easy fix for a dumb control layout

    I just replace it with a killswitch button. Now it's out of the way, and you can easily use the button for cool effects.

    Or just buy a pickguard without the hole for the top volume knob, and use one volume, one tone.

    Another belongs-on-TGP post but I preordered one of these.

    Collings guitars are incredible. My 290 is ridiculously perfect. The I-30 is a holy grail guitar I have yet to meet someone that wasn't blown away.

    Careful. You might piss off the angry traditionalists.

    In all seriousness though, I don't really see how well that layout would work on a Strat. Maybe I am the angry traditionalist after all...

    It's too bad I have an aversion to signature gear, and never really liked the feel of JP's guitars, or I would've bought one just for having an actual usable control layout.

    There's basically no way to actually use all the controls on most guitars while playing. Something is always in the way of something else, or not in a convenient place to reach.

    Chris Broderick's Jackson also has a similar control layout, and it's not an accident. However, I also disliked that guitar even more than the JPs and it's being discontinued.

    IMO the JP line is essentially like a Les Paul, there’s way too many in way too different finishes/specs to be a single sig. However you still don’t like them so that is moot. Good luck finding something you gel with.

    I don’t understand aversion to signature gear especially when there’s no actual visible signature, unique artwork, etc...

    Just pretend the company released unique model and enjoy it. Why deprive yourself of something cool over something so silly?
