Cool.
I like the natural 175 looking one with the dearmond type pups.
I don’t remember seeing one of those before ?

Breathtaking! Imagine the new guitar smell in there!

For some reason I'm thinking of the seagulls in Finding Nemo. "Mine. Mine. Mine."

I'm suprised at how many A150's were on the racks!
Wouldn't have expected that model to have the largest build.

I'm liking the grey ones behind the blue ones.

What's the significance of the big white button by the cutaway on some of these?

I presume Newark Street or other imports and the big story is that the factories are shipping to Oxnard and the instruments are getting an inspection before they go out to dealers? (Based upon reports from several years ago that instruments were boxed at the factory and not inspected again until the dealer or customer opened the box).

CMG has changed this some time ago (3 to 4 years ago I think), so all Newark St. models and Westerly Collection guitars ship into Oxnard and are fully inspected.

Here is an old picture from 2018 (previously posted in another thread here) of the Westerly Collection models there:

And proof what the QC team in Oxnard is doing on each Newark St. guitar: (Truss rod adjustment in that case)

The open bottle of aliphatic glue is worrisome as is the bottle of super glue on the tool box.

Manufacturing that many guitars it's a wonder any of them are playable -- a manufacturing/engineering miracle, really.

I would expect they don't have to do much rework on these brand new guitars, unless Onard is actually a planned stop for pre-delivery setup, which is entirely possible.
