Hi guys, so I bought my Siggi Braun relic strat last year. I placed my order early October via the EUGG group which was doing a run, and received my guitar before Xmas (amazing turnaround time!) Ever since then I've been obsessed with it.
It's a vintage replica of a 60's strat, in Daphne Blue. It has Haussel pickups (which sound SO good) and an extremely comfortable neck, which coming from a strict superstrat shredder guy is really something!
I have and have had a number of high end customs, and this is currently an outstanding number one. It's been used in the home only, as my gigs are about every decade!
Sounds like the best strat I've ever owned or played. It just kills in every switch position.
Super easy to play and very comfortable, on a par with my best Suhr (and I've owned 10+ of those)
Looks great, they nailed the Daphne Blue colour and the relic is just about perfect. Siggi asks you at the start how much you want it relic'd and you can look at pics to help you decide. Mine is just right. As an indication of the level of attention Siggi has to this stuff, he relics everyting aside from the saddle screws, which he says have a tendency to fail if you do those as well.
The EUGG run meant I got mine at 50% off (yes 50%) There was a run of 10 only and the spots sold out in 11 seconds. That means I paid around 1450 Euros for mine instead of the 2900 standard price. Therefore for everyone wanting to buy now, price is a con at 2900. Is it worth it? Well yes considering I've played strats that are twice that price and just not as good.
Custom guitar means a wait, you can't just go into a shop and buy one.
Like the wait, availability is a problem, you can't try before you buy really.
I decided no more customs due to the financials and the tremendous issues with Sabre Guitars, but this was so good when another run popped up for the Superstrat Icarus model I caved and spent more £.
Here's a Youtube video I made today which just shows a few of the sounds that I really like. If there are any requests for other sounds I'm happy to demo them:
