You would use the hot and ground
score. got it all wired up and shes singing like a bird! well... a very pissed off bird haha.
So didn't see it posted but looks like the price drop on the Boden Metal is because production is moving to Cort in Indonesia.
That's honestly a little disappointing but I've heard the original is fantastic build quality wise regardless but I do base that off the unbiased gear review Arnold did
Ordered a Metal 7 off Musiciansfriend yesterday (15% off for Prez day). Not sure where it was built, but even with the higher MF rates, the discount made it worth it vs. ordering direct.
Verdict in a week and a half when it gets here...
Pretty sure none of the Cort ones are around yet, the prototype is for sale on the Strandberg site right now.
Pretty good deals on those Prototypes, for Strandbergs and assuming build quality follows...
All the import Bodens are now listed as being made at PT Cort.
Curious to see if that move results in price drops across all (formerly) WMI models, or if the margins on any will be increased through keeping direct prices the same.
Any thoughts on the first fret e-side of the fingerboard on this Fusion? The board appears to sink in at the edge of the 2nd fret, as well - But it could just as well be the camera angle.
I suppose I'm glad I bought up while production was still at WMI. I've played an Original though and while I didn't pay much attention to any details, I don't remember any problems.
I asked on their official group. The wording on originals still only say cort.
MTM 9 got listed on Reverb. My favourite MTM and the one that got me interested in Strandberg in the first place.
I nearly pulled the trigger on an original til I read that they moved from Korea to Indo. I thought the QC was on the up? Need I stay hesitant or just go for it?
EDIT: @J_Mac JK I thought you were talking about the Metal for some reason. Original was always made in Indonesia.
Holy shit that's expensive lmao
I'd like to reiterate that I will entertain ridiculous offers on my Strandberg.
10 thousand bucks, lollerskates.
The originals have always been Indonesian, as for the QC it's definitely pretty good, I had a batch of 7 come in, 2 Koreans and 5 Originals and honestly there weren't any issues with any of them that I could see or feel or hear. The Korean ones were slightly nicer overall though, the Indonesians were absolutely perfect but the Koreans just felt like they had that extra bit of quality, like the tops were slightly nicer and the colour of the roasted neck was slightly more caramel and nice to look at. They all played great though.
