Ah, ok. Whew. He's pretty popular.

Now that Steve Klein is building guitars again, though, that makes Strandberg's wait list less of a problem.

Default Neck being routed

This is a lesser quality photo because it's a snap of an instagram video, but you get the idea:

The whole video is here:

The latter.
Strandberg have taken off big time and is having problems keeping up with demand; makes no sense to sell to others at this stage.

I've played the OS series (6 trem) and will be buying one: Ergonomic, sounds great, very resonant (no doubt due to chamber + maple/ash bidy), tiny.

Derail over!

Cheers,
Steve

Default Mock up with neck

This isn't the body we're using obviously but setting things up to see how they fit.

I'm guessing there has been some progress on this build?? It's been over a month!

Edit: Forget what I said about a Month, you 'Murican's can't seem to do the date thing right either!!!

We've been taking our time getting the body shape exactly right, so he's been messing around with the composite board mock-up, and I changed my mind a few times and ended up going with a body design that was a little less radical. So, as soon as the final mock-up is done and we've both decided it's a go, I'll post something. I can't imagine it will take very long after that, but since I'm in no hurry I hadn't thought about it much. Come to think of it, both of my builds are going at a snail's pace right now!
