For anyone who's on the (loooong) .strandberg* waiting list, here's the place to talk about your ideas for spec, but it'd also be cool if people could keep us all posted on progress of their order. It'd be cool if people let us know about their experience as they go through the process and that sort of thing too. I for one am pretty recent on the list (a few days ), but here are a few of my ideas. I'm really into stripped down, very straightforward guitars at the moment, I'm rebelling slightly against PRS-like uber quilt tops in purple with gold hardware and the like. I want: Swamp Ash body 6 string 25-25.5" Maple neck thru hardtail Black hardware DiMarzio Humbuckers (I love the idea of the Lace pickups and stuff but realistically a DiMarzio set would suit me better) Topwise, I'll either leave it as is, Maple with Swamp Ash wings exposed, but more likely go for a natural flamed maple with a satin finish, I think natural satin maple looks great with black hardware. I'm on the Decibel waiting list too, and will probably get one in a similar spec but no neck thru and I'll plum for a hannes bridge. Let's hear from you folks!
