    I agree 100%.

    But I also disagree with them using a streaky Walnut fretboard and bridge. The pale, roughly-made, soft bridge is a disgrace. The dyed fretboard isn't much better for an instrument that is over $2k MSRP. From photos it looks to me that they are using the same items that are used on the Mexican-made instruments.

    The IZ model’s fingerboard and bridge is East Indian Rosewood, not Walnut.

    Tenor Koa Fluke (rosewood fretboard, Pegheds)
    Concert Tie-Dye Flea (rosewood fretboard, Lucy's tuners)
    Soprano Firefly (walnut fretboard, Pegheds)
    Late 40's Martin Style 1 soprano
    Concert Oscar Schmidt Mousekulele
    Tenor Mainland Mahogany Slothead
    Concert Eddy Finn Moon and Stars
