    Sorry for the delay guys.
    I got this about a month ago; I jumped on it as soon as they opened up the preorder (I kinda regret not getting the swirl). The .strandberg* company was great to work with; they always answered my questions within 24 hours. The guitar itself is amazing, the setup was perfect out of the box, and the endure neck is a dream to play. The headless endure neck took no time to get used to; it's very intuitive and natural to play. The pickups are serviceable, but I will be looking to change them out shortly.
    Overall I do believe it's worth the money; The price point is a smart move from a business standpoint because this guitar has me hooked on .strandberg*, I'm already saving so I can a boden os8 as soon as I can.

    Nice! I'd like to respectfully request more straight-on photos of the body :D

    EDIT: Nevermind! There's one there, it just wasn't showing.

    I'm so sad I missed that preorder.

    Don't feel bad about missing the swirl, I prefer the solid color too! At times, I think I'm the only one on this forum who doesn't totally love swirls.

    As a new os6 owner myself, I feel your excitement and I, too, am already saving for an OS8.

    Happy NGD!!!!

    edit: just noticed these aren't fanned. Huh. I thought one of strandberg's sales pitches was "fanned fret headless instruments".

    Well, straight frets just happen to be Per's preference. This is a signature after all. There is a version with true temperament frets though, and I think they would be exponentially more costly if the base guitar had fanned frets, and one of the concerns with this guitar was to keep costs low. That's why it's made in China for example.

    Congrats dude! I have one too and love it, the thinner version of the Endurneck on this guitar is fantastic! :yesway: Originally I planned to immediately yank the stock pickups, but honestly they grew on me so now I'm not sure if I'll even bother! :lol: I went with the swirl and love it (I'm biased though, I love swirls haha) but the solid red looks great too. To me, these guitars are like the hybrid baby of an Ibanez UV and a Strandberg Boden. :D

    No these aren't fanned. The singularities have a true temperament option though.

    The neck is amazing. The pickups are really good, but I'm thinking about getting a red set of Blazes.

    That solid red reminds me of my first guitar, a NJ 88' Kramer Pacer in Candy Apple Red. Nice choice, and congrats on the NGD!
