    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.
