Sorry for the delay guys. I got this about a month ago; I jumped on it as soon as they opened up the preorder (I kinda regret not getting the swirl). The .strandberg* company was great to work with; they always answered my questions within 24 hours. The guitar itself is amazing, the setup was perfect out of the box, and the endure neck is a dream to play. The headless endure neck took no time to get used to; it's very intuitive and natural to play. The pickups are serviceable, but I will be looking to change them out shortly. Overall I do believe it's worth the money; The price point is a smart move from a business standpoint because this guitar has me hooked on .strandberg*, I'm already saving so I can a boden os8 as soon as I can.
