I have no experience with them... but from the specs and the pictures looks good to me. Do you have an option to test it out first?

You have a Money Back guarantee by 14 days. I don't know if it works even if you open the bag and try it out. It would, or? Because i f-cking love this guitar. And as my 'internet' friend told me, he "knew" the owner of woodoguitars.se and he does everything to make his customers 100% happy with the bought.

What a piece of crap... Get a Fender



Have you no sense to say? If this is now a crap guitar, try the letter the right word for it and maybe help me instead.

you sir, are an idiot.

They sure look nice, and I like the specs. Of what I understand, they're quite new on the market, so...

I think the companys primary product is basses though. Just look at this beauty

Dammit! All the superstrat models have fuking tremolos! I hate trems!! Could anyone translate the prices of the site to USD? I have no idea what currency "Kr" is.

EDIT: nevermind, i found a translator. Pretty reasonable prices.

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.

I actually own that same guitar, I'm in a pending endorsement deal with Woodo (my bassist is already sponsored). I was offered the guitar for free to test it and see if I wanted it. I'll start by saying the workmanship is great. Pretty much flawless actually. Woodo have a great concept in that they save in on replaceable parts (pickups, trem etc), aswell as finishes and bindings and all that fancy stuff, and put most of the money on getting the build right. You can always swap a dull pickup but if the frets are crooked or the neck is glued poorly it doesn't matter how expensive pickups the guitar has. So basically the whole price is for the build itself, so if you were to add all the fancy hardware, pickups, inlays, bindings and finishes that you get on similarlily priced instruments like LTD or Schecter, you'd have a $1000-1500 guitar. So the actual build quality of this guitar is in league with the Ibanez Prestige or similar guitars.

The pickups are pretty bad. So is the Licensed trem. The volume pot isn't very dynamic. But those are all upgradable. The woods and build quality, not to mention playability, is way beyond LTD, Schecter, Fender and all of those guitars that costs the same as the woodo. I think this is a great concept.

This might sound like a sales pitch, it really isn't, like I said I'm not fully convinced if I want the endorsement deal yet seeing as I already have a PRS Custom and a Warmoth made entirely to my preferences. But to answer your questions, these are my opinions on the guitar. It's incredibly shred-friendly btw, even moreso than any Ibanez I've tried and the fret access goes easily beyond even the 24th fret because of the neck-through construction.

And yeah, it's a very friendly company, basically run by one guy who really does anything he can to keep customers happy and build a respectable company. I'd wait a few months to buy though cause there are a few new models coming out early this year that you might want to check out first. Cheers!
