    Another thing to add to the list of things that make Strandberg cool but are totally unavailable:
    • Varbergs
    • Baritone hybrid
    • 8 string trems
    • Modular nuts

    The Varberg too fuck man I forgot about those, did you ever see if those Wired Guitarist Varberg run guitars were produced? I don't remember seeing a single one up for resale since then.

    I definitely saw one burl top Varberg 7 with the right specs to have been from that run, but I have no idea what happened otherwise. I think it was just before the demise of the Swedish production too. Anybody ever ask Mehtab?

    i find myself wishing for finishes more than actual features.
    I wish Slate Blue glow was part of the PRS core color list.
    also i wish the Nick Johnston usa sig was made in the pink color that they use on the imports...

    Have you tried the Roland GI20: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-5...0001&campid=5338014327&icep_item=182239027311 ?

    @StevenC the fishman tripleplay is not compatible with the 13 pin thing, is it? Doesn't it connect wireless to a USB pen into a PC/Mac/Ipad to inject MIDI directly into the DAW or other synth software?

    I must say I never played with MIDI guitars except for brief moments at a store, it's cool...

    Yep, that's the idea. You can send it other places over bluetooth like the pedal they have. 13 pin is Boss/Roland's proprietary thing as far as I'm aware.

    This used to exist, but shouldn't it exist again?

    The Terratec Axion and the Graphtech Hexaphonic/Ghost preamp are both Roland compatible and I think that Yamaha is on the 13 PIN connector as well...

    Bolt on SG with 25.5" scale and a fixed bridge that isn't a wrap around or TOM.

    A Jackson/Charvel Criss Oliva signature would be lovely. Zebra print or the Skulls graphic or the blue gargoyle one

    They're both 100% on my CS bucket list. I'd tune the Kelly a half step up with 4 unwound strings and be the Vektor of 80s power metal

    Dont usually care for matte finishes or TOMs but this with 2 more frets, 1 more string and gold hardware, hnnngggg[​IMG]
