After waiting for weeks, my CL7 finally arrived thanks to a good friend who brought it back for me from the States. I want to especially thank Ed Yoon of strandberg* guitars for his graciousness and patience extended to me while purchasing this beauty.

As a student, I found it difficult to afford a strandberg at its retail price. I found out about their B-stock models through some forums and decided to email strandberg about their pricing. Ed was the one who liaised with me. I settled on getting a B-stock strandberg Boden 7 and saved up by teaching and selling away some gear.

Shortly after I made payment, lo and behold, it turns out they made a mistake and the model I ordered was used for some other pickup prototyping. I was devastated. Ed kindly offered me some other b-stock strandbergs at the same price and as a fan of STS, I couldnít pass up on this.

I just played it for 30 minutes and itís absolutely beautiful. Such a joy to play with. The cleans are so pristine with the Duncan Sentient/Pegasus set. The Endurneck didnít take me any time to adjust to. I similarly just got along with it. I will upload a video of my playing soon!

TLDR: broken student wanted to buy a b-stock strandberg but due to a twist of fate, got a better strandberg at the same price. strandbergs are amazing. ed yoon is amazing. thank you ed.
awesome tale, so glad it worked out in the end, grats dude!

I will let you know... broken students also have to create NGD threads showing their strandberg so I can click "thanks"

Howdy all just wondering if there was a wax or finish protector / cleaner to use for the natural strandbergs?

I have some of this left

Solid finish, plastic covers, that looks like it must be the "cheap" OS model they've been talking about.

I really hope they have some good colors for that other than the "every MIK guitar" lineup of blue, red and black.

Same. I mean a transparent finish with a veneer top can't be that expensive, or am I completely wrong?

ola teased a new boden line on instagram
https://www.instagram.com/p/BPEVY9eB...ola_strandberg

looks like solid color, active pickups, no rosewood fillets in the neck

looks like a cheaper option. maybe closer to the singularity pricing! nice to see them listening to their survey results. love these guys

Considering the electronics covering extends down to the jack, it looks more like a J model than an OS. They might be changing the full range of it's going to be an OS.

I really, really, really hope it's chambered...
If it's chambered and solid color I won't even mind the same cost. Of course if it's cheaper, all the better

But if it's a solid-color, cheaper OS without chambering... le meh.

I just hope they offer something other than an ash body on it. Alder or mahogany would be nice.

Basswood! it's cheap and sounds great! (despite all the kids claiming it's a low quality tonewood)

i agree, it would be great to have an alternative to swamp ash. i'd love a mahogany boden personally.

i'm not much of a 7 string guy. but i'd consider picking up a 7 of theirs if they had a new cheaper-than-OS line. really dont dig the singularity

I saw a bigger picture on Facebook that was clear enough to make out the shape of "Korea". And the W at the start of the serial number implies it's made in the WMI factory in Korea, which no other Strandberg has in it's serial number.

my guess is a sustainiac boden OS6. His live stream of the sustainiac install and the added battery compartment (cuz it's not there on the emg models is it?) is oo much of a coincidence

i'd be a lot happier if it were a sustainiac than active pickups. that'd be fun. i've seen models with and without battery compartments that were both supposedly made with emg's as stock. as in not retrofitted. so i dont know. like this one at music zoo
