About This Project
One of the major events of 2013 was the signing of Paul Masvidal as a .strandberg* artist, and the development of a signature model for him – the Masvidalien. Paul had previously purchased #35, which he fell completely in love with after trying it out briefly before the 2013 NAMM Show. The Masvidalien was developed on the Varberg model, exactly after #35, with the only change being a shift from Seymour Duncan SH-4/SH-2 pickups to an EMG 57/66 set, and the incorporation of Paul’s distinctive forearm tattoo into the look of the guitar. The pictures below show the guitar at an early stage without the pickguard, and later with the pickup that is now incorporated in the production model.
