Also, a pickup winder named Smits sells a handmade USA replica, the "Ultra 7T", for ~$100. Though people complain about his waiting list or long delivery times or smthn to that effect... So, with some luck (and if you live in an area with a lively craigslist), you could find an original vintage 1970s Maxon MIJ Super 70 for about the same, just faster
PS concerning the new Destroyer reissue itself - MADE IN WHERE? and what's the price point?
