With the new “production line” out, Claas is trying to compete with .Strandberg* it would seem. The prices are comparable. The production line is made in the Claas custom shop just like all the other customs; but you don’t get to pick custom specs. You choose from 6,7,8 string; and Walnut, Ash, or Mahogany body. The neck is maple, the fretboard is ebony, and the frets are med-jumbo stainless steel. Lace Alumitones for pickups. No tone control, and a simple push-push volume control for pickup selection. Who’s tried one? Who owns one? Who wants one?
