    Just picked this up today. I have wanted one for a long time but didn't want to pay the price or wait for shipping.

    Then one showed up locally, so yeah. It got me by the pants, damn near took them clean off...

    I'm so happy with this..

    Chambered swamp ash body with flame maple top - ( not that it matters... it's friggen painted.) total weight is just an ounce over 4 pounds

    Maple/rosewood neck with a maple board.

    Endurneck profile. ( stunning in feel )

    Seymour Duncan jb/jazz set

    Minor fan, 25.5 on the bass and 25.0 on the treble. Hardly even notice

    finished on 04/17/17 and shipped the next day

    I've been very intrigued by the Strandbergs. They're like what Steinbergers maybe could have evolved into, if Ned had stuck with it. HNGD and let us know what you think after you've had some time with it.

    (I secretly love the idea of getting one of these, putting a Pearly Gates in the bridge, and taking it to one particularly uptight local blues jam.)

    ahhhhh its YOU!

    I knew there was someone on here that was into these things, but I really couldnt for some reason recall, and frankly didnt really feel like hitting the search button to find out who it was that has posted these in the past.

    These things are totally killer. yours are lovely looking. mine is 1 - 3 in this finish. I kind of wish I could see the flamed top, but at the same time... if I use it. I will see it sooner or later...

    Congrats Carver. I guess you're in your jazz-fusion phase (which is cool )

    How is the balance on that?
    I'm guessing the shape is not just for cosmetics.

    Super yummers. I am all jelly...

    During that brief period of Steinberger popularity, there were a few non-Steinberger headless floating around. Some cheapo models and some medium priced including from Yamaha. I played a few and fell in love withe the Yamaha. Even the not particularly good ones were nice and rigid and played well. Alas, I was a poor lad just scraping by and was never able to buy one...

    'grats to you.

    It amazes me that Gibson has mothballed Steinberger (and Ned Steinberger doesn't have his prototype headless guitars to market yet) when headless & ergonomic instruments are their most popular right now. You'd think they'd be scrambling to get this stuff out.

    I've never played one--do you have to adjust your playing style any due to the type of bridge and fanned frets?

    yes and no. Its really interesting and hard to explain without having one to pass back and forth between the two of us.

    the bridge sits exactly how your wrist sits. I no longer have to attempt to mute all the strings. my hand is simply there.. and doing what I want. If I want to not mute, I just move my wrist back a smidge, and its perfect.

    the fanned fret is very minor, and if you dont look at the board while you play, it wont mess with you. if you look at the board, it will take a bit to get used too.. but if you look at the side dots and map your hand that way you wont miss a thing.

    after about 30 mins with it, it feels natural, and I do admit that after playing for a while my wrists dont ache at all.. the endurneck profile is unreal.... the body shape does take a moment to get used to when you are standing, sitting it feels like its part of your body. it weighs nothing, so that also takes a moment to get used to.

    I love it.. I will be buying another some day.
