I‘m a big fan of all Strandberg guitar creations, unfortunately scaling up the guitar to become a brilliant bass doesn’t work. As the strap pin is placed above the 15th fret, the bass is placed further back than normal, leading to a far far away first fret. In addition the pin on the backside is pushing in your chest when sitting down, somehow this is not a problem on the guitar. The endurance neck is a revolution for guitars, but on the bass way to fat, it feels like grabbing a brick. The sound and weight of the bass is awesome, so is the pre-amp and general build quality. I will definitely get one as soon as the neck is reasonable sized down and the strap pin is placement makes sense (round about 12th fret).
Thanks for the feedback, Joseph. I'm sorry to hear that the design didn't quite hit the spot for you. Your comments are noted, and incorporated into the design process for future revisions. I hope we can come up with something that works better for you. /Ola
