I hadn't heard about any lawsuit, care to enlighten me? Gibson successfully sued PRS (and I think a few others) over copyright infringement. Apparently some of the bodies are too close to the LP singlecut design. http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/news/industry_news/gibson_vs_prs.html P.S. Alexandria, ...
