    Strandberg's more comfortable to play though. Frankly from an ergonomics pov, that Fly upper horn was just form over function.

    Well frankly speaking, since it was mentioned actually because I completely forgot, the Steinbergers (Newburgh, NY) are arguably above and beyond all contenders (with the 1 piece graphite construction, electronic/hardware, and its indestructibility and imperviousness to nature) - but it isn't nearly quite as pretty as that orange parker, my goodness, it is artful!

    Well I mean, it's just a neck. I think many luthiers would argue you don't want something as stiff as that for a neck / that you want to find a balance between the natural flex of wood and the stiffness of carbon/graphite.

    The trans-trem is an idea way ahead of its time though. But I mean... above and beyond?? They're just different.
