The headless specialists at Strandberg have unveiled a new model, the Salen Jazz.
The company's first-ever semi-hollow headless model jazz guitar, the Salen Jazz features a chambered mahogany body with a single f-hole, a solid maple top, and a carbon fiber-reinforced bolt-on mahogany neck with Strandberg's EndurNeck profile.
Also aboard is a 20” rosewood fretboard with 24 frets featuring Jescar 57110 stainless steel fretwire, plus a Strandberg EGS Series 5 fixed bridge and string locks.
Sonically, the guitar features two Strandberg classic humbuckers wired to a five-way selector switch – containing options for selecting the neck outer-coil, or a combination of the neck inner-coil and bridge outer-coil – and controlled by individual volume and tone controls.
Other visual appointments on the guitar include Luminlay green side dots and inlays, black anodized hardware, and a black pickguard.
The Strandberg Salen Jazz will be sold for $2,095. The release date for the guitar has yet to be announced as of press time.
