Hey all, first post so i'm still figuring stuff out. I've been playing an Ibanez RGDIX6PBSKB Iron Label sixer for a while now, and after spending significant time with a friend's 7 string, i think it's time to get on of my own. Strandberg appeals to me because: A. I have lower back problems and nerve damage in my left hand (Particularly my thumb), so the overall light weight and endurneck looks like a good fit. B: I heard that the tremolo system is great C: I like to travel, and the smaller size looks ideal for it. D: I am a sucker for a minimalist, modern design, and love the look. E: I played on a friend's boden 6 a while back, and loved it, although had a small amout of time to actually mess around with it, and it was before my accident. For reference: I play in a dissonant-style death metal band, not far from the sound of Portal, Mitochondrion, or Abyssal. I am willing to shell out a fair amount of cash for this. it's killing me that i can't play for more than 90 minutes at a time. Thanks!
