So I'm living in Japan for a while and I decided to buy some nice MIJ guitars, after wandering around at Ochanomizu in one of my trips to Tokio I catches a glimpse of the Japanese made boden Line up from Strandy. At first I didn't thought I could afford them so I didn't even try them, now that I found out some of the "J8 Standard models" I want to get one. I'm not 100% of their reputation though. First of all, I'm expecting a perfect QC from these (unlike what I've read from the OS line lately) and something along the lines of the Leda signature model (I got to play that one, a little broad for what I'm used to but not a deal breaker) So my question is, what's your opinion on these models? Spec wise it's not a fancy guitar like the J series description on strandbergs site, this one is made in 2017, it has a 3 piece roasted maple neck and normal maple fingerboard, X bars and I think a birch top? I got a photo of the control cavity from the dealer and it looked pretty neat to me, although I'm no expert. I would like to hear opinions from the qc mainly, Also I would like to hear your thoughts on what and how would you check the quality of this instrument personally (I plan to go to that store again but it's quite far) like, what details do you check and how do you check them? It's gonna be my most expensive guitar (albeit this is hardly an issue now) I just want to cover as much aspects of possible failures when I'm trying it personally. What are your suggestions and/ or opinions on this particular series?
