Strandberg announces updates to Plini and Per Nilsson signature models

Featuring some unique construction upgrades to all the models.

Strandberg has announced new versions of the signature models for Plini and Scar Symmetry’s Per Nilsson. The announcement comes ahead of a planned set of live-streamed performances debuting the models.

Boden Plini Edition Neck-Thru

Strandberg's Boden Plini Neck-Thru

The signature model for Australian prog guitarist Plini has traditionally featured bolt-on construction, until now. This new neck-through version “virtually eliminates the neck heel,” allowing for easy access to all of the 24 fanned frets. The neck is made of roasted maple, and has five-ply carbon fibre reinforcement. This is topped with a 20-inch radius ebony fretboard, itself adorned with Plini’s moon inlay at the 12th fret.

Flanking the neck to form the body is a pair of chambered swamp ash wings.

Hardware consists of a Strandberg EGS Series 5 tremolo bridge and string locks, finished in matte black. These match a pair of black open-coil Plini-edition Strandberg Humbuckers. These are controlled by a three-way pickup selector and master volume.

Lists for $2,995.

Singularity True Temperament

Strandberg Singularity True Temperament

This pair of guitars, with the seven-string finished in Red Blast and the eight-string finished in Blue Blast, features a unique fretting system that compensates for the natural tuning imperfections of strung instruments.

Construction consists of a solid swamp ash body and a bolt-on roasted maple neck, with five-play carbon fibre reinforcement.

Like the finish, the electronics also vary depending on the number of strings you opt for. The seven-string edition sports a Lundgren Modern Vintage humbucker in the neck and bridge position and a Lundgren seven-string single coil in the middle. The eight-string edition features just two Lundgren M8 humbuckers. Both guitars have a master volume and tone control and five-way selector switch.

Strandberg notes that “due to the complexities involved in the manufacturing process of the True Temperament models, availability will be limited.”

The seven-string lists for $3,695 and the eight-string for $3,795.
