WARNING: Arturia Keylab heads up!

Heads up! If your looking for a controller, Arturia said it has "REAL WOOD SIDES". LIE! It's a plastic sticker over plastic ends!... and my new keylab 49 is peeling. NOT COOL. :x

I think they only say the newest one has real wood sides. Even Arturia understands the concept of 'false advertising'

Arturia doesn't say real wood, just wood. :oops:

My guess it's a composite with a laminate covering, solid wood costs too much to use in a product like that.

Anyway, good (for others) to know that yours is peeling already.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.
