    I thought it was a cool idea as well. I do like some of the models, but were all always a spec or more short to my tastes, like the Breed 13 not having a trem or the newest purple tele only having 22 frets, etc.

    Same, it's always one spec I don't like. The blue single pickup guitar was about perfect though. Just didn't have the cash at the time.

    Web site says they use Asian suppliers. The factory is in Vladivostok, so it's not that difficult a journey to get parts in China, I suppose.

    I like their designs, and the company's philosophy is interesting. Maybe I'm biased, but the idea of sending money to Russia for, well, anything is a bit scary.

    I think you might just be confusing bias for common sense I see guitars on Reverb all the time from Russia, and it is an immediate deal killer for me. Might as well be Iran or Syria.

    The blue breed 8 model is my friend and exbandmate, Codi Newkirk's model. He plays in a band from Pittsburgh called Whitethrash. If you're still interested, I could talk to him and see if he's willing to part with one? I believe he has a few
