After struggling with left hand ligament problems for a while I decided to sell my Vader 7X and buy a Strandberg Singularity. I already own a Boden Prog 7, but I wanted to have a thinner endureneck and a 25.5 scale length, notably for wide stretches. Having straight frets also makes tapping arpeggios easier to play. Cosmetically, the guitar arrived without a scratch. Upon closer inspection, the intonation was off and some frets needed to be leveled a bit. Nothing major or unexpected. The stock pickups are surprisingly better than I thought. I had ~2 hours free on Sunday, so I decided to do a little solo on a track by Jared Dines to give you an idea of the sound of the bridge pick-up. Please don’t pay too much attention to the solo itself, it was my 1st day off a left-hand ligament pain related hiatus and most of it was improvised (I obviously added the harmonies afterwards) – and I’m by no means a pro (or even good when compared to many users of this forum). This week I’m taking the guitar to my luthier to change the 2 humbuckers for Fishman Fluence and to replace the single coil with a Fishman rechargeable battery pack. I’ll post pics of it or a video when it’s done. Cheers !
