    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

    Sustainiac Boden with a trem would be a sweet combo! :hbang:

    Thanks man, I see it now!

    Sweden design - made in Korea
    EndurNeck patented

    Since it has a battery compartment, it might have EMG57/66, since those were the only actives that made it on the survey...

    Ola did try some fishmans recently, perhaps the option of Seymour EMg's or fishmans!

    Do the Fishmans need a battery compartment? I thought they were rechargeable via USB...

    EMG equipped OS guitars do have a separate battery compartment.

    Ola posted a funny vid just recently where he did an hour long install of Fluence pickups in a formerly Lace equipped OS7 to find out at the very end that he hadn't thought about a space for neither a 9V block nor Fishman's rechargeable battery.

    On the other hand youtube vids of Fishman installs on Strandbergs exist, where the 9V block actually did fit in the electronics cavity!?

    It can be either, you can buy an extra battery cover or a 9 volt. The usb battery pack is pricey though

    I'm guessing its a new Masvidal model, based on the guitar that he's holding in the recent "photoshoot" pics/video that plini posted. Appears to have the arching dot inlay on it... :thumbsup:

    Agreed! I reckon this, a new Plini sig, seven string with tremolo, cheaper standard model and fishman options

    man... for my sake i hope there isnt a new plini sig coming but it definitely seems possible. i was really bummed i missed the last one and i dont think i could get one this time either!

    all that being said, i'm now the proud owner of a very wonderful US custom shop Boden. it is truly amazing. its only downfall was finding out that the older model bridges have tuners that dont accept an allen key. something i was unaware of. i'm going to try and see if strandberg will hook me up with some because my thumb and index finger want to fall off after re-intonating this thing last night.

    Did you end up trading with the Meesh for the PRS?

    They will provide you with new tuning barrels.
    I had the same problem with an EGS Bridge I bought off the bay. Ola kindly sent me ones with allen key cutout. :metal:
