Sire guitars, the new electric range - a game changer?

Based on the quality and performance of their Basses and Acoustics I very much suspect so! Can’t wait to get my paws on them!!!

They look great, I love their H7 (ES 335). I was about to place a preorder when I found a not so good review of this specific model on YT. The guy had QC issues on his sample and said that in the same price range, there were other options available. But I guess QC issues happen whatever the brand/range: my over-expensive Fender Am Pro Strat is a disaster: the neck pocket cracked after 2 months on 3cm, the pickguard is not flat, frets are not very well polished, etc.
I'll probably order one soon, anyway ;-)
BTW I have a Shijie Strat (the same as Darrel Braun...) and it's absolutely perfect. The roasted maple neck is stunning. It now comes with stainless steel frets and better locking tuners. They are slightly more expensive than the Sire but probably a good competitor.
