Ola Englund endorsed by Strictly 7 Guitars

Just saw his new signature guitar on Facebook:

Here's a video of him playing the prototype:

"...When they find out you have more than the standard number of strings... It's like you're the ....in' highlander or something..."

I was quite pleased when I saw his proto slightly before divulging things was in order - I find it quite aesthetically pleasing, and Jim has a rep for being nothing but an awesome chap regarding endorsees and customers alike. Here's hoping everything works for the best with Ola's new endorsement!

Is it an optical illusion or does that trem route look oversized?


Everything else looks good.

the bottom end edge of the trem itself looks like it's recessed a bit after the pole.

I really dig everything about this guitar (finish, neck, scale length, shape, size) except for the Floyd...one of these without a trem and I would be all over it.

It is most certainly not an optical illusion.

It's nice to see the Strictly 7 name getting some more recognition (not that I'm biased or anything ). I know Ola's videos get quite a few views, should be good for business.

The inline (and reverse-inline) headstock has been a standard option for Strictly 7 for a while, I think since the beginning?

I feel the same way. I should hate it, but I really like it.

Anyone know if Ola is a member here? He's on MGO, but he's not posting in this thread, so I'm assuming not.

If this is the sig guitar Jim mentioned to me a while back on the phone, its going to be affordably priced and available in European stores. I think hes planning on building around 100 of these give or take. But don't quote me on that, my memory could be wrong.
