The .strandberg* take on the legendary solidbody

The Sälen Deluxe

Sälen deluxe family photo vintage burst & candy apple red 6 string

What makes it special?

The Sälen 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 is at once familiar and strikingly bold, vintage and futuristic, yesterday and tomorrow.

What does it do?

To get this natural organic character to the amplifier clearly and faithfully without compromise, the Sälen features the Suhr Classic T Bridge and Neck pickups. These pickups are amongst the most acclaimed in the industry for providing the characteristics of the best vintage pickups while taming other less desirable artifacts like too much treble or not enough output. The result is a full yet biting and raunchy bridge pickup and a warm and smooth neck pickup that provide a surprisingly wide range of great sounds with both clean and overdriven amp settings.

Who is it for?

The inspiration from which the Sälen sprouted from sparked a musical revolution that still resonates today, and we sought to take this inspiration to a new level of look, functionality, ergonomics, sound and playability. Incorporating our lightweight headless design, multi-scale fanned frets, the patented EndurNeck, and aerospace-grade hardware, you get all of the features that a Strandberg guitar is acclaimed for but also with the look and sound that conjures up the glorious eras of guitar-driven music, from classic rock to pop and country to jazz.

Strandberg Salen Vintage

I love this guitar…..I tried out the fingerboard at one of the local shops because I thought I wouldn’t like it.. I have a PRS with a V neck and don’t really enjoy playing it much..so I was a little Leary with a total change of neck body etc…to my surprise I adjusted to the guitar in five mins…and was playing everything thing up to the last feet with ease …and I noticed I had less tension on my hand…across the board…. Everything was relaxed and easy…..The guitar has a resonance comparable to my old PRS custom 24…where the chord rings out and you feel the vibration in the body of the guitar. The Suhr Single coils are self explanatory…awesome sound and clarity…The build quality is similar to a core PRS custom without the weight…oh and the weight and size…make it easy to carry on Public transportation and it fits in plane over-head bin….It’s a solid guitar…and has low noise: it’s single coil �…I bought it for the weight and ergonomics…and portability…and now it’s my main guitar now. II even gave it a nickname🤣🤣 …I have a bunch of guitars…by every major maker and this is by far my Swiss Army knife… I don’t work for Strandberg and truthfully didn’t know much about them…just happen upon it ..and wow I originally thought they were for Metal…but they are actually great for Open Mike gigs where you have to play various styles and sounds… Don’t take my word for it…just check one out…you can’t lose..and your body and hands may thank you for it… KAS

One of the best production guitars I’ve played

I originally purchased a different refurbished model that had some fret issues, which I returned. I took another chance at this Salen refurbished model, and I’m definitely sold on both the design and the quality of this instrument. The sound and sustain of the notes from both the chambered body and pick ups are incredible. I now question every other guitar I own, as no other guitar I have can achieve this level of sustain. This is an extremely high quality instrument with a revolutionary design that improves upon comfort for the benefit of everyday players. I can’t say enough great things about this guitar, so I want to address a few items that I would change on future models. The bolt on guitar heel sticks out way too far at the 16th fret for such a highly priced instrument; I believe this can be improved upon on a bolt on model, as many other competitors have better and smoother guitar heel joints on a bolt on guitar. The other issue is the Strandberg logo cut out chambered ‘holes’. While I like the whole aesthetic look of the cut out, the sharp corners of the cut out and the placement of the ‘holes’ are a trap for clothing (sleeves) to get caught and chip the paint finish and edges of the wood near the hole (I’ve almost ripped my sleeve and the finish when my clothing was caught in it). All in all, a great product and great return policy for any skeptic player who is on the fence.

Great to hear that you are happy with the Sälen Deluxe! Thanks for the feedback about the heel and f-hole, which are things we will take into consideration for future product development.

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.



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.

EndrureNeck strandberg guitar

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.
