You might wonder how I could afford to buy this amazing guitar? it was not easy, and it took time ....
To make the long story short, I made contact with Ola Strandberg, and I decided that I would like to own a Strandberg * guitar and this was after I had tried one at Fuzz Guitar Show in Gothenburg, Sweden (It Felt So Right).
We talked about making a personal guitar, but after looking through the gallery on Strandberg's website, I saw the # 34 a late night. It was then I decided that this guitar #34, is what I want. Why you may ask?, just look at it!
So about the money part (disgusting part) , I can proudly say, I was recycling cans for over 1 year, and earned 24,000 sek, one can -> 1 sek.
Nothing is Impossible, if you have a goal, you can achieve it, believe me!
Note to Ola Strandberg; I would like to Thank Ola Strandberg for his amazing work and for the love that he puts in his instruments! I never played on such a beautiful instrument before, the weight, the warmness, the beautiful piano like sound just as the description on Strandberg* Guitars webbsite says, it has its cosmetic defects, which actually are my favourite part of the whole guitar, Scars shows your outside but your inside is much more important
When I first played on a Strandberg* Guitar I knew that his guitars is the only thing I want in my life next to my own custom built guitars made by myself.
This guitar gives me ULTIMATE motivation and inspiration! So pure in many ways, I always get distracted by its tone and beauty, Once I play on it, I can't let it go! I really love the connection to my instruments, The #34 is like a big brother to my other guitars, like a big happy family :)
