Sälen Classic NX 6 Butterscotch Blonde

Sälen Classic NX 6 Butterscotch Blonde

SKU: SL6CT-21C-M-S-TB

The Sälen NX is the .strandberg* take on the legendary first solidbody electric guitar from the 1950’s: not a mere copy of this iconic guitar that changed the history of music but a thoughtful and innovative design that balances the best of the tried-and-true traditional with the thoroughly modern concepts that our guitars are known for. The Sälen NX is at once familiar and strikingly bold, vintage-and-futuristic, yesterday-and-tomorrow.

Due to its solidbody construction, Sälen NX Classic exhibits a punchier and snappier tactile response than the NX Deluxe, making it ideal for country players as well as rock and blues players who prefer the meatier and more solid feel that such a guitar provides. A true classic wood combination that has been heard in countless recordings over many decades, the Sälen NX Classic exudes a timeless nature that blends seamlessly with the modern .strandberg* design and innovative features.

Exuding A Timeless Nature That Blends Seamlessly With The Modern .strandberg* Design

The Sälen Classic NX

What Makes It Special?

The Sälen NX is the .strandberg* take on the legendary first solidbody electric guitar from the 1950’s with thoughtful and innovative design features that bring this iconic electric guitar design into the 21st century. Balancing the best of the traditional honed over five decades with various modern concepts developed over the past decade by Ola Strandberg, the Sälen NX is at once familiar yet boldly exciting and non-conformist. It is about making a statement to express where you are now and going in the future with a respectful nod towards the past.

What Does It Do?

The challenge of developing the Sälen was finding the ideal balance between the classic/traditional and modern innovation. The Sälen NX succeeds with every detail being painstakingly considered to provide the best of the two antipodes. From the materials, pickups, and components to the contours of the body and the placement of the controls, each detail was carefully thought out before implementation for attaining the best sound quality as well as the ideal aesthetics and uncompromising playability. The result is a guitar that can faithfully recreate the classic sounds as well as adapting to the requirements of the modern performance and recording environments.

Who Is It For?

With the capability to produce the classic sounds of yesteryears with all the innovative features that .strandberg* is known for, the Sälen NX satisfies the needs to today’s musicians who wish to have the best of both in a compact and ergonomic design for the ultimate in comfort and mobility. Whether you are into rock, country, pop, blues, or jazz or all of the above, the Sälen NX models will deliver the tone, playability, and feel you need to perform at your very best.

Sälen NX Concept

Unique Qualities

Anatomy of a Strandberg

There are many design elements and factors that comprise a .strandberg* guitar. Each aspect - from the materials and components used to the ergonomic design features - has been carefully thought out and implemented to produce a guitar that is light weight, easy to play and has a big woody organic sound. Explore these different aspects that set a .strandberg* guitar apart from the rest.

Headless

By removing weight from the headstock, your guitar can be made very light and yet balanced. You can play with greater comfort for longer.

Versatile Body Shape

The body shape provides multiple seated playing positions for maximum comfort and versatility.

Scale Lengths Adapted to You

A multi-scale design allows your wrist to remain relaxed throughout the range of play. A longer scale length for the heavier strings provide better tone, and shorter in the thinner strings better playability.

Patented Neck Profile

Our patented EndurNeck™ profile promotes a more correct playing position. The result: you can play longer, faster, better and avoid injury.

Space Age Materials

Our hunt for great tone and low weight led us to using aircraft grade aluminium and carbon fiber for maximum performance.

Proprietary Hardware

The custom .strandberg* hardware is a vital contributor to the tone of the instrument. Lightweight aircraft grade aluminium and tight coupling of components ensure that nothing prevents the strings' vibrations from entering the body.
