A true custom shop guitar

Almost nothing is ordinary on this guitar! Many different, attractive woods along with the Tyger finish Bare Knuckle pickups, the black stained poplar burl top and the 7-string multiscale fretboard are what catches the eye first. A .strandberg* EndurNeckTM and a custom Luminlay sidedot layout is anything but ordinary as well! Very complex, active Richter electronics and ETS piezo saddles give the player a wide variety of sounds to choose from. Another highlight is the black burst stained top and the matching headstock.
