    I have been curious about the bodens for quite some years but haven't had the wallet nor the nerves to pull the trigger on one.
    So I went for a KO from China (sorry).
    The bad;
    Needs some minor fretwork
    The pups are rubbish.

    The good;
    LOVE the ergonomics
    LOVE the "endurneck"
    Very nice buildquality taking the price into concideration.
    The padded bag was a nice surprise.
    Looks quite good, I must say.

    Congrats - never apologize because your guitar is Chinese. You do you! That looks like a decent platform to fine-tune/upgrade. I hope you get a lot of quality time with it! As far as aesthetics go, looks killer!

    I think he's apologizing because it's a Strandberg rip-off, not cuz it's Chinese.

    They can do endurnecks now? That’s pretty sick!! Way better case than my NK too

    on my NK I sanded down the edges of the fret board with a sanding sponge and polished the frets with a rotary tool with cloth wheel attachments and green compound and while I didn’t do that great of a masking job the fretwork feels great now
