I’m less sure about this. I think when you make a formal arrangement with the Stromberg estate to use the name, and you take exacting measurements from their historic instruments and have highly skilled luthiers recreate them, in key respects it becomes a legacy production, certainly with as much continuity as bigger shops like Gibson or Fender, etc., which change owners and builders over time. Others may disagree, or at least not wish to equate the new instruments with the old—which is fair—but equally there is a lot more going on than simply slapping a name on an unrelated instrument.
