    The new Indonesian made replacements are here, with the 60s Strat in Sunburst, CAR, and LPB, the 50s Strat in Sunburst, Black, White Blonde, and Fiesta Red, the 50s Tele in BSB and White Blonde, the CVC Tele in Sunburst, and the Tele Thinline with a Nato body, also the CV Starcaster in Natural, Sunburst, and Walnut.
    $50 price drops to $349, and $399 for the CVC Tele, Starcaster, and Thinline Tele. There's also the Affinity Starcaster for $299, and Contemporary Starcaster for $399.
    They look very cool to me, especially the CAR and LPB 60s Strat, the Fiesta Red 50s Strat, the Walnut CV Starcaster, the CAR and Olympic White Affinity Starcaster, and the Ice Blue and Surf Pearl Contemporary Starcasters.

    Hmm.

    A relocation of the facility where the model is made. Probably 100% new people, doing the parts, processes, manufacture.

    So, IMO we have to start all over from scratch, as to how much quality we assign to these products.

    On one hand I am very happy to see production leave China; on the other hand I know better than to think the quality will be as good.

    It is it’s own thing, but very similar to mahogany.

    I wonder if they’re still going to continue with the “heavy guitars with tiny necks” theme ?
