Just put in my DC600 order. Here's hoping it arrives within 4 months
The quality should be better, since the Strandberg is just an expensive Cort.
I don't even consider any Strandbergs not made in Japan now. I got mine during the Korea days and while I'm certainly biased, it's definitely ahead of all the Indonesian Strandbergs I've played in the last couple years. I think Japanese Strandbergs are up there with the best, but the custom shop price tags are not worth it.
And, Ola hasn't done much to entice us to order a second strandy over the last couple of years. No new colors, features, etc. Meanwhile, everyone and their sister has a compact headless in a variety of colors and features.
I mean, Cort are pretty good for what they are...but yeah
I’ve only seen a handful of them, but each one was definitely not impressive. They should be ashamed of themselves for charging that much for a Cort guitar.
Well, in their defense they're not "Cort guitars." There are very few factories that make production instruments, and they have different lines and QC for each brand/model.
They’re made by Cortek, yes? And regardless of their origin in Indonesia, they do not, IMO, exceed Cortek quality. They’re grossly overpriced.
Leia va Zeus overlay gif, in case anyone was curious. The new Leia is indeed both narrower and shorter in length than the Zeus.
Thanks for that. Really linking that design.
Not groundbreaking or anything, but just very nice.
According to the Facebook page the Leia will also be available in 24.75" scale. That just greatly increased the chance of me ordering one.
Unfortunately for some people apparently 6 or 7 string only and no multiscale option.
That looks way better proportioned than the Zeus as a 6 string. I like my Zeus 8 but was always hesitant of getting a 6 because I thought the neck looked pretty skinny compared to the oversized body.
Same, I would only order an 8 string Zeus; the 6 and 7 feels too big. The Laia looks a polished version of the Zeus for 6 string.
It's definitely more like a single-cut Vader, than a neck-through Zeus.
why no multiscale tho
Well, with the tuners ending right at the edge of the body, it would mean one of two things. 1) they could extend the body, 2) the tuners would stick out behind the body. We know they are willing to due that based on the Thanos, but it would be the first time for their guitars. And finally, the body is pretty darn small. Multiscle means longer scale, and with the tiny body, that may not balance well, even as a headless.
Have you seen Cort's prices lately (6 string basses nearly $1K USD)? Cort should be ashamed for charging that much for a Cort.
When’s the 4th sale begin? C’mon guys!
3 days after the July 1st price increase? usually, though, whatever sale they may have, will run at least a few days into next week.
