With the revolutionary True Temperament fretting system

The singularity

SINGULARITY DESIGN WITH REVOLUTIONARY FRETTING

All the ergonomic design benefits and the unique sonic characteristics of the Singularity take a giant leap forward with the revolutionary True Temperament fretting system which offers virtually perfect tuning anywhere on the fretboard. Solid American Basswood body with time-tested tone woods, aircraft-grade aluminum hardware, patented EndurNeck™ modified to Per’s specs, and best of class electronics featuring Lundgren pickups meld together with the groundbreaking fretting system into an instrument that has to be heard and felt to be believed.

IMPROVED TUNING THAT MAXIMIZES RESONANCE

The True Temperament fretting system was certainly not designed with visual aesthetics in mind. This is all about getting the best tuning and intonation possible on a guitar. Every note you play on the fretboard sounds more in tune than you’ve heard before but it’s especially noticeable on the chords you play. The “beating” of notes that are not in tune with each other is eliminated, improving the perceived loudness as well as the overall sustain. When you strum a chord, the notes within the chord all seem to bloom together in perfect harmony. Not only will you hear the tuning sweetness in your ears, but you will also feel the instrument resonating in a way you have not experienced before.

CUSTOM CALIBRATED FOR THE SINGULARITY SCALE LENGTHS

The True Temperament fretting system on each of these Singularity models is custom calibrated to the multi-scale lengths of the 7-string (26.25” to 25.5”) and 8-string (28.0” to 26.5”) so you can simultaneously experience the full benefits of both cutting-edge concepts in modern guitar technology. Balanced tension from the lowest to the highest strings and a more ergonomic spread of the scale lengths are coupled with the most advanced tuning system to offer a truly exceptional and unmatched playing experience – both physically and aurally. See, feel and hear how far you can take your playing and music with all the benefits that the Singularity True Temperament offers.

The completely reimagined Singularity as envisioned by metal and prog guitar virtuoso Per Nilsson, these one-of-a-kind 7- and 8-string models feature the revolutionary True Temperament frets custom-calibrated to our multiscale lengths, modified EndurNeck™ neck shape, Lundgren Modern Vintage and M8 pickups, and a solid Swamp Ash top with the striking sandblasted finish in Red and Blue with matching hardware.

Perfectly balanced 8 string guitar

As I’m highly satisfied with my Singularity 8, I wanted to share my thoughts about it: Fanned frets: -Very subtle, but you get 6 string-like tension in combination with the long scale for the 8th string. -Even Drop E works perfectly with the stock 09-84 strings. -Bends on the higher strings feel smooth like on my Strat Tone: -Perfect balance from low to high notes. No „dead“ frets, even volume distribution. -Pickups are great for Meshuggah type rhythm guitar but are versatile and also work for jazzy 8 string fingerpicking or slap guitar. The frequency response seems pretty even. Perfect definition and clarity. -Middle position works great for percussive techniques and also for situations where I would use a single coil sounds on a Strat. Before I received the guitar I thought about adding a split coil mod, but actually the 3 positions of the switch give me enough sonic variation. -True temperament sounds extremely stable and feels normal. At first it looks a bit weird but you will be able to orientate normally after 1-3 days. If you want to tune the true temperament precisely take a look at "How do I tune?“ on the TT website. -Nice shielding, very little noise. Feel: -The ergonomic concept really works. I never had any problems with my previous guitar but having such a light and short 8 string is really cool. -Playability is top notch. You can reach high frets easily and the rounded neck shape feels very natural to play. As I am mainly a Strat player this neck feels a bit slimmer and it took a little to adapt my pull-off technique. -The industrial design is so well thought out - for instance the combination of the input jack and the backplate in just one part, the cylindrical tuners, the general shape, and so on. -Finish and woods feel and look smooth and flawless. The end of the frets are rounded off properly. Compromises: -To really follow the true temperament concept, an evertune bridge would be the most logical choice. But than you couldn’t go headless and would loose many Strandberg advantages. -When changing the intonation you need to lower the string tension before making changes, and afterwords you need to tune up again. It’s an iterative process so you change the tension several times which can cause a 09 gauge E string to break in the process. -There is a volute at the end of the neck which is more pronounced than on my other guitars (Les Paul, Strat, Ibanez M80M). I needed some time to get used to it when playing on the 1st and 2nd fret but now it feels good. -There is a slight color difference between the blue hardware and the striped finish on the body, which is more like violet. I think it’s cool and it reminds me on the blue-violet Ride The Lightning album cover. Overall: -This guitar is a dream coming true, it’s even better than I imagined it to be and I can’t stop playing it. The Singularity 8 has a perfectly balanced sound, it's ergonomics are outstanding and the combination of supreme specs paired with Olas innovation make this instrument unique.

The Singularity True Temperament 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.
