Wow, I got my second space on the list no more than a few weeks ago, there's already 20 more people on there behind me.

Crikey!

In other news, Al Mu'min has taken delivery of his mystery guitar so that's one more spot to knock off the list!

Hey all wait-listers!



I know many of you are dying to place your order for the first
production model .strandberg* guitar, and we are incredibly excited to
let you know that it is now available for pre-orders.




We have been waiting for an on-line automated payment solution for
orders, but to not leave you hanging any longer, we will deal with your
orders manually to get things started! To place your order, contact Paul
DeMaio, who is copied on this message at [email protected]. But
before doing so, _please_ read the below carefully.




First some facts:

- this general model, i.e. the shape, will be called "Boden"

- what is now available for pre-orders is a production model, based on
the specifications of Tosin Abasi's .strandberg* guitar, which has
serial number #17. For more info, see
#17 – Tosin Abasi | .strandberg* Guitars The specifications for
this production model are identical to #17 with the exception of the top
being flamed maple (instead of quilt) and nickel silver fretwire
(instead of stainless)

- price is US$2,599 and includes a custom padded gig bag but excludes
shipping

- payment terms are 50% at time of order and the remainder before
delivery

- delivery is expected October 1 (subject to demand)

- other models (7-strings, 6-strings, tremolo models etc.) will be
available later

- if you give up your spot on the wait list, you are given priority for
the production order, in the order of your position on the wait list

- if you represent a dealer, we will have some procedures in place for
you to become authorized as a .strandberg* dealer, so let Paul know

- the .strandberg* production models are done 100% to the original Ola
Strandberg specifications.

- I (Ola Strandberg) have personally trained all personnel involved and
these are truly the real deal. I will continually oversee production

- the production itself is managed by Strictly 7 Guitars, and the
guitars are made in the USA

- Boden will continue to be available as a full-custom guitar, made in
Sweden by Ola Strandberg, but subject to a quite long wait list and a
higher price point

- There is no room for specification changes in this production run. If
you need other specifications, the full custom route is the way to go at
the moment. The aim is that future production will be able to manage
customization.




We look forward to delivering your favorite guitar!




'til later,

Ola Strandberg

For anyone wanting a production model.

Why did you necro this with news that hasn't yet been finalized? It'd be cool if he did a 6-Boden, but I don't believe that's been our in the pipeline as of yet.

I actually inquired about a 6 string production boden recently, and what he told me is that they were planning Paul Masvidal "model". Not sure if it would be like Chris Letchford which actually is a "signature" model, or like the Boden 7 / 8 which is "specced after" Bulb / Tosin's .strandberg* builds though. All Ola said was that specs still remain to be determined.

6 string production

Looks like we'll find out about this next month. From Ola's facebook.

there is a rumor of a production Varberg 6 coming. I wonder if Al is getting a sig

Id be all over a Varberg 6, but I think its too complex of a guitar to do on an S7 production scale. But Im not an S7 boden hater, Im probably going to buy one this summer actually :hbang:

I like how you guys went
'I heard there may be a production 6'
'I heard there may be a production Varberg'
'I heard there may be a Masvidal sig'

But nobody mentioned Masvidal has a Varberg 6, and thus the 'announcement of new production 6 string' is likely

Since Varbergs seem to be the focus for 6s and Ola said it was a signature series, I will put my money on Masvidal. This suits me quite well. I like Cynic. A lot. In fact, my second .s* order was meant to be for a #35. I'll be interested to see if they stick with Seymour Duncan or go to EMG. And an HSS configuration would be cool.

I'm so guessing, I just combined three rumours. If you know something you basically have to spill now.

If there ever is or was a Masvial signature guitar......I would get it. He (adn the rest of Cynic) has been a major influence on me all my musical career.

Dunno about Misha but that's not Masvidal's Varberg. Wouldn't be surprised if the production 6 is based off his Varberg though.
