I wanted one of these really badly in a 7, but that asking price for just a finish is insane.
€2500 for an Indonesian made guitar!?
Same prices as the other signatures isn't it? At least it's still the full guitar. The Plini and Masvidal signatures are more expensive with fewer features than the base models.
I just glanced at the 6 string version. So +$400 USD for a stock Boden Metal with her custom finish. I kind of feel like it departs from something like the Masvidalien or Plini because those would otherwise be the only way to get a single bridge pickup model with a top or Koa veneer.
I would be neither for nor against it but the White blotch on the forearm has always ruined her sig for me. Also the finish appears to be the same for every guitar across every model? Wonder how it's done? I think it would have been really cool (maybe not cool logistically though lol) to have each of them be 'similar but unique'.
Similar but unique would be super cool! What would be killer is to have Sarah actually paint them each. I’d pony up much more for original art like that, than a photo on top of the guitar.
Anyone have an idea how much of this goes to Sarah? If she gets a large chunk of the upcharge, I’d be much more inclined to get one. I’d like the idea of it going to support an artist I like.
Just wait until neckthrough pricing gets announced.
you won't believe what caused the internet to shit itself
Those neckthroughs are going to basically be the price of my M2M neckthrough.
Not just the neck throughs, but aren't true temperament frets being added to production line?
It's absolutely insane. You can buy a brand new Mayones for this kind of money and it's more expensive than a new PRS Silver Sky. No matter how good the quality control on these Strandbergs are, there's no way anyone can justify these prices.
The prices wouldn't be so bad if there was some kind of product development coming out of it, not just clumsily moving production around and subbing a different wood every now and then.
Is the image zoomed more on each guitar or does the 8 Sarah sig look crazy big compared to the 6? My eyes!
I didn't go back and look it up but I don't specifically recall TT production models being talked about, other than a supposed updated Per sig. What I am remembering instead is Ola saying he found (or was working on) a way to do full stainless steel TT frets. Again just off the top of my head I could be misremembering.
Ola posted a teaser of it on Instagram a couple days ago and commented that there will be production models.
Wasn't the TT production guitar announced in January at Winter NAMM? I thought we already knew these were coming.
Yes it was
Update on the guitar decision. I went for the Prog 7 and was absolutely blown away. The build quality is immense, finish is superb. So much improvement since the OS line.
Unfortunately the low B string goes sharp after diving the trem >_< and the Fishman's sound like gravelly sh1t. Returned to the store for a refund, absolutely gutted.
This might be the "new generation of frets" that was announced in November of last year on the True Temperament website.
They don't have the classical fret tang anymore and seem to work in a plug and play way.
EDIT: Sorry, I couldn't quote. My account is too new.
I apologize for being extremely off topic here, but I have the same exact issue. I just got the Keith Merrow Fluence set installed by Sweetwater into one of my 7 string Ibby’s and the same thing happens to me. The wiring looks okay, but I admit I’m a noob when it comes to stuff like that. Did you ever figure out what this was?
Not sure if this is what you’re talking about but Ola showed this off on Instagram a few weeks ago, they have stainless steel TT frets now that are multi scale compatible, and I believe Ola has a license from TT so they can make the frets compatible with whatever multi scale design, wether it’s 25.5 to 25 or 26.25 to 25.5, etc, he can pretty much do anything now with TT, not sure about the “plug and play tangs” though, but according to Ola it’ll be on Indonesian production models, actually he said in another post the slots have to be CNC milled still so yeah
