    That thing is just too out of the ordinary, for an ordinary guy like me. I would not put fifty bucks in front of someone else owning that thing.

    Yeah, I'm in your camp. Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

    One of Buck's old band members played something similar at the Crystal Palace, I always had to look away from it when he was playing. It was like looking at a car running into a train or something along those lines.

    It reminded me of this line...

    Well the two men took to fighting
    And when they pulled them off the floor
    Leroy looked like a jigsaw puzzle
    With a couple of pieces gone

    Strandbergs are cool, but for my tastes they can have too many strings (like, eight). This one is crazy! I'm intrigued by headless and fan-fretted guitars, so I'm like to play one.

    I know their original guitars (from Norway?) are quite pricey, but they have some more affordable one made for them in China, right? Which one will this be?

    Yikes! About $3000CAN. Too rich for muh blood.

    EDIT: On their web site, I see the "Boden Classic" is $1300US. More like it for me.

    That's a bit pricey for a MiC guitar ;)

    I'd have to judge it for what it was, in hand. I don't think you can get a new headless, fan-fretted guitar with a asymmetric neck profile for less than that.

    They don't look like fan frets to me?

    Yes...they do. And what an interesting neck profile!

    I like the butterscotch blackguard one...I would've liked it better if it had a modern type of ashtray bridge with 22 frets.

    I've tried to play steinbergers and the lack of a headstock really throws me. I can only imagine this would too. Someday I'd like to try a fanned fret guitar - I've heard they're not too difficult to get used to.

    My Salen Deluxe arrives on Wednesday.... I'll let you know. For me it's the ultimate travel tele.... fits in the overhead .. fits in a soundcheck.. fits in Merle Haggard tune.
