About This Listing

This instrument is in perfect condition. It’s been played rarely, and only in the house.

The pickups are Lundgren, which are a bit less “in-your-face” than the EMG pickups that strandberg* used to put in their custom shop models, and I like them better—or at least as well as—the Fishman Fluence pickups that now come standard on strandberg* guitars.

The body and top are made of some amazing kinds of wood—I don’t know which, but they’re from the “specialty” section of the custom shop website. Perhaps “poplar burl”. The guitar is absolutely gorgeous up close, when you can see the grains and natural edges.

As a custom-shop model (documents included), it comes with the “premium” gig-bag, which is thicker and nicer than the one they give for the factory models.

Obviously, the sound, feel, and overall quality of this instrument is incredible. But I urge intermediate-level players not to make the mistake that I made in assuming that an nice expensive guitar will make me a better player. It did get me to practice a bit more, but the high price is only worth it, I think, if you’re a serious player who does studio gigs and stuff like that. It’s not for a hobbyist like me.

I’ll consider offers but I hate being low-balled, so please be serious
