While not as well-known as the groundbreaking and futuristic Boden, the Sälen has quietly become a beloved model in the .strandberg* lineup amongst those who seek a more conservative and classic look and vibe. The Sälen Deluxe and Classic models remain as popular as ever since their introduction in 2018, played by professionals and tone connoisseurs all around the world. With their Suhr Classic T pickups, the Sälen has garnered accolades from artists and players into country, classic rock, blues and other rootsy styles of music with their distinctive sonic twang and snappy response.
Now, the Sälen takes on a whole new character with Mahogany body and neck, Rosewood fretboard, an F-hole and dual .strandberg* MF Classic humbuckers to provide a look, feel and sound that is unlike any other guitar model that we have ever developed and produced. The Boden has covered virtually all modern guitar styles and musical genres with aplomb and the first Sälen models have covered many as well but this Sälen expands the coverage and deservedly earns a new name: Jazz.
