    I've been craving a Strandy for years, and finally I got the chance to pull the trigger.
    It was worth the wait.

    Frets are a bit sharp, I reckon this is due to lack of moisture.

    That aside; simply fantastic on all levels.
    The coiltap-tech on it is wonderful.

    Nice! Looks great!

    I wouldn't worry about the rough fret ends. Nothing $40 at a tech can't sort out for you.

    HNGD!

    This. They look amazing and I'm sure it plays super well.

    Just can't justify the price for an indo guitar. Shame really, price these the same as the current high end Schecter models and I get one in a heartbeat

    I own the orange version. Sorry to hear about the fret ends on yours - As you say, it’s likely climate-related. I find the neck-thrus the heaviest models across the board. How’s the weight of yours? What kind of stuff are you using the “Fusion” pickups for? I’m not particularly in love with them.

    I have the 2020 model with maple fretboard and Suhr pickups and I'm almost jealous of yours. HNGD!

    Mine weights about the same as my other bolt on bodens.

    Interested in this as well, I'm surprised to hear that it weighs more than other models.

    HNGD - looks stunning!

    I wish you could get these with a standard neck profile. I tried and didn’t get on with their neck profile. That was bolt on tho so may have to try a neck thru

    Like butter, honey and angels, dude.
    Some sharp frets but that worked out when it acclimated.

    Love the weight, pups, endurneck and the ergonomics of it all
