weird, all things considered they were cheaper than normal $3,699, but all a bit average compared to other drops.
looks like they stopped doing that bullshit 2 sheen finish because it gets scratched pretty quickly. anyway, I've heard this US drop and the Space T that is coming up will be the last of the US drops for a while, need to find a different builder. not sure if that's true but heard rumblings about Grover Jackson. Would make sense given the last small drop and not that many drops happening this year.Yeah Ngl I like the ultramarine but the rest was kind of average, agreed there
I can’t say I’ve heard much of Obeche, maybe that speaks volumes in itself, but how is it so bad to warrant that kind of reaction?that was probably the worst one to buy because it's made out of shitty obeche wood - seriously what builder uses that wood? It's super shitty.
I swear to God if it has anything to do with tone I'm going to quit this site I swear.I can’t say I’ve heard much of Obeche, maybe that speaks volumes in itself, but how is it so bad to warrant that kind of reaction?

(God knows I'm joking but ill threaten it!!)
PRS uses obeche for bodies on Wood Library some times.Its garbage African plywood used in cheap factories as a rosewood substitute. Very inconsistent wood like most Chinese builds. Just surprised they’d use it. The wood name sounds cooler than it is. Basically sounds like Corinthian leather of wood.
Yea I mean it’s very hit or miss, especially with the USA models it seems, sometimes they’ll be the best guitars someone’s ever picked up and it’s absolutely perfect, sometimes it’s just trash, painted bad, pick-up wiring leaves some unwanted noise (personal experience with my legion 8), action is bad, but I think the hate is low-key reasonable when you’re dropping a few $k on a model, you’d expect it to be high quality and again, sometimes it is and sometimes it isn’t, so it’s especially frustrating if you’re seeing the IG posting constant positive reviews, but idk, that’s just my 2 centsGrabbed the Chalk J7 and a Master 6 Mystic Dream late last year, been playing them nonstop ever since. Fantastic guitars. Not sure where all the hate in this thread is coming from. Did I just get lucky or something?
You really can't go wrong with a Suhr. Mayos are also generally fantastic, I own several, but I've seen a few Duvells with build issues and some people really hate the ergonomics on the Regius.Interesting. Was hoping for a PVRP Master 8 but now the thread has me a bit concerned about buying more. Maybe it's time I grab a Suhr or Mayones.
