To everyone bitching and moaning about the price for a guitar made at WMI, some things are flat out more money than others. Would you go The Keg and bitch that someone is getting a burger for 15 dollars compared to your steak for 50? No , because they are two different things. Strandberg OS is not Schecter , therefore the price tag is hefty. If you want a USA version, just fork out another 1500 bucks.
