anyone try them?
Are they made of fig leaves?
I can offer some (actual) info here.
I recently purchased an alder Tele body in 3-tone sunburst from the Eden eBay account.
Quality cuts and routing
Very good finish: even color bands, subtle blends, and level clearcoat
Neck pocket is spot on, tight as a drum and drilled correctly
Great value for money
String-through ferrule holes are drilled small, requiring work
Shipped with a nickel-size chip down to wood by the output jack
Returning it wasn't worth my hassle and shipping cost, so I'm fixing the chip with filler and epoxy. But the body never should have been shipped with such a glaring defect.
I have a set of '62 pups on the way. I've borrowed the neck from my pinecaster - an All Parts maple fat neck. I have a Wilkinson bridge that isn't great but will suffice. Still on the fence on white vs black pickguard.
Anyway, if my body is representative, there are enough fundamentals in place to make Eden bodies worth a try. (I would stay with alder, however, or ash if they do that.)
I bought an unfinished alder strat body once because I didn't have time to find the wood and make the body at the time. It was excellent in every way. All the different parts I bought installed perfectly after I finished it. Nice piece of wood, too. No regrets from me, but that was only one body.
I was considering them, years ago...some were local, at one point
