    I am beyond stoked for everyone who wants a more affordable ViK Guitar. Its going to be awesome seeing more people able to finally try these guitars out. Prepare to be blown away!

    ViK Guitars will also be at NAMM under the name of ViK Guitars USA showcasing some customs.

    The word is that there will eventually be a USA production line of ViK's made by a major manufacturer! :yesway:

    Interesting.

    Ola Strandberg has proven this works great but it took quite a while to get to where its at now.

    Wishful thinking since they only just kicked production into full swing but I hope its Schecter USA that produces these.

    Could be a sizable win if they just have a reasonable turnaround. Though I don't know any US production company that uses comparable woods, aside from PRS PS.

    I think there is little chance of a "production line" Vik consistently using wood comparable to PRS. I think "a snowballs chance in hell" is the most accurate aphorism.

    I'm happy that Vik is reaching for success, but will get more and more pissed if his reaching delays his waiting builds even longer, for ....s sake...

    ^ agree

    going to MESSE, going to NAMM, starting a USA production line, he needs to cover these expenses and i get that. its business but putting to a halt to current customer orders should not stop, a plan should be put into place. myself and many orders were around before these things were even a forethought. he chooses to do these things, OK, no problem, whats your plan for your current orders?? not working on them is not acceptable.

    Mehtab will probably buy them all and sell them for the price of a custom ViK

    I'd be curious to see the quality on these. Can't really say I'd want one. :shrug:

    I'm pleased for him. But he's a well known flipper, and I was just having a joke.

    Why's Vik want more customers when he's so far behind on custom builds and runs?
