Hope for the Idol yet?
« on: May 08, 2011, 12:01:16 PM »
I just noticed in the Instruments section under Original Idol that there are some newer designs under the designation WI LITE...now, they're still veneered with stock pickups, but at least the body shape/neck joint is closer to the WI64/WI66/WI68...

Now let's get some USA models!

They're pretty cheap for some reason.  The most expensive one is $399.00, compared to the $700+ that the
WI66's went for.

My opinion is there is no hope, the new designs are an insult to the original. They only seem to be interested in making cheap junk for (who they think are) the dumb masses.
