Yep we will offer Multiscale on all string variants.
Now you really have my attention
Yea, like instead of getting into it and throwing around honest opinions and maybe everyone learning something in the process, we should just throw around pleasantries because this is supposed to be the guitar forum equivalent of a kindergarten presentation? Like for every thread of a new thing, which naturally brings praise and criticism, there's always that one white knight poster (or several if it's a guitar hero's product).
Also not sure how comments on a guitar forum preclude giving something a chance (though realistically this is 99% bought site unseen so it will not often be given a chance, not through would-be-customer-ignorance, but by not having a compelling argument to throw down some cash and risk the hassle of not being happy and dealing with customer service). Phew.
I’m very simple. I see headless multiscale I buy.
Joe any thoughts on making 28 an option available on the 6s?
Yeah that's doable.
oopsie I meant the 28.5 you use on the archetype baritones.
are you going to add other headless shapes in the future?
Sorry then, my mistake. Just looked similar...
Not a fan of the body design. It is probably comfortable to play but it just doesn't look good. With a doublecut horn on the top side and contours matching the bottom more I'd like it.
Not a fan of the aesthetics, but I know others are. Variety and options are always a good thing so no complaints from me.
That body shape is pretty awesome. Finally something that does not try to be Strandberg too much.
How is the balance of this model when playing it standing?
Thanks, it balances evenly as if you were playing in a classical position (no neck dive but the body isn't an anchor either).
All good! Here are some closer pics, but I do see what you mean as the casing is cylindrical like theirs:
They look great, good luck with your venture
The Boden Classic and Boden Original are made in Indonesia (~1.2k classic, $2k original).
The Boden Metal and Prog are made in Korea (~$2k).
The J-Bodens are made in Japan (~$2.8k).
The custom shop and M2M are made in Sweden ($4k+).
So I find it weird to say they "cheapened out" when we're in a thread talking about doing the same thing -- overseas production of guitars in Korea -- the same as Strandberg's more popular models. But Amaral already sent two of the Korean-made ones back, so I'm a bit skeptical on the QC. Would be interesting to see where these fall both in terms of price and overall quality.
How is the QC being handled here? Are they being shipped back to PA for inspection before being sent out to customers?
All guitars are shipped to Pennsylvania before being shipped to the customer, yes. The only reason they would not be shipped to Pennsylvania, is if a distributor is involved who has a QC team willing to sign off on my checklist prior to shipping any guitars they have in-stock overseas. That's not in the cards just yet as I haven't even officially launched this company, but you get the idea. Pricing will be released next month, but I think you'll be surprised where they sit in the headless market.
Looking forward to seeing the prices on these. Also always nice to support a (somewhat) local company. Hell I was out in Phoenixville twice last month
That's good to hear. Because the bodens are being shipped to a distributor, I think they're not scrutinized as closely as they would be if sent to a luthier, not to mention being able to fix things rather than just filter things.
