Some might argue the price is a bit too much for an indo guitar.

If I can get these with low output vintage pickups, I only have one word: YUMMI 🤤

The better ones are the same price of a Gibson LP Standard, I'd probably put my money there for vintage output but got to say surfing the web they may have the best active-PU tone.

They show one with TELE style pickups!

I wonder what the prices will be like once these start showing up used? Now that they are being cranked out in fairly large numbers in probably the same indo factory that makes schecters and ibbys, we may start to see quite a few of these indobergs floating about. Not long after, we are going to see lots of used indobergs floating about smile.gif I can't wait to try a few to see how the indo versions play!

Yeah I have to admit these cause some serious drooling on my end.

I also have to admit prices seem a little steep.

The price points are too high for that happening anytime soon. I mean if anyone buys and prefers to sell after 6 months I wouldn't expect a price drop similar to shredder guitars.

Will interesting to watch though how it will perform on value, an indo being the same price as Japanese or USA made is rare. So I consider it a market experiment if price point or where its made determining the used value. Will be easy to compare;

Lowest model compares to SG Standard
Highest model compares to LP Standard, Strandbergs are around 100 dolar more expensive.

Time will tell smile.gif They seem over priced for indo made guitars. I see a LOT of strandbergs for sale these days on the used market. People ask crazy prices and they don't sell. I"ll stick with my original statement on this one. Just give it a bit of time an I think these off the rack indoberg will get cheap on the secondary market. But again, only time will tell, we are just speculating.
