Singularity 8 True Temperament Blue Blast

SKU: SG8CT-20T-R-A-BL

Singularity True Temperament takes Per Nilsson’s Singularity model concept to a whole new universe with the revolutionary True Temperament fretting system that has been custom calibrated to our multi-scale lengths, a modified EndurNeck™ shape that is slightly smoother and rounder for an exceptionally fast feel, a striking and singular etched finish in Red Blast for the 7-string and Blue Blast for the 8-string with matching color hardware, and the pulverizing yet musical Lundgren Modern Vintage and M8 angled humbuckers.

Featuring virtually perfect tuning across the entire fretboard, the Singularity True Temperament looks, plays, feels and sounds like no other guitar in the world. Due to the complexities involved in the manufacturing process of the True Temperament models, availability will be limited.

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.

Singularity 8 True Temperament Blue Blast

I'm giving this guitar 5 stars because from the second I got it, it has been my go to axe. I love it and I can't thank Ola, Per and everyone at Strandberg enough for making it a reality. It's so sick and badass and versatile. Chords sound so full and gnarly and with gain frighten the neighborhood children :) The action is a little on the high side but I think this is per Per's specifications from videos I've seen. The pickup selector switch is only 3 position but that's enough really. Overall a very balanced guitar that sounds really sweet, for clean, rhythm and leads. Love those Lundgren M8s! Construction is top notch and I've had zero issues with it.

Singularity 8 True Temperament

This is an awesome instrument. It is very versatile and sounds great in a variety of genres. I play mostly jazz fusion, straight ahead jazz, and Latin with it. The pickups sound great clean and with effects (I use a Headrush Gigboard). The neck feels amazing, it is more rounded than the typical enduroneck, and I like that. I am appreciating the true temperament fret system more and more each time I play it. There was no learning curve with the frets, it felt natural right away.

Great to hear that you are enjoying the Singularity 8 with the True Temperament system - and I love to hear that you are playing jazz and latin with what would normally be pigeonholed into a metal instrument! /Ola

Exceptional

I own Strandberg 7 and 8 string true temperament. Both are exceptional in terms of quality as well as initial setup. The intonation was spot on out of the box. I wish I’ve tried Strandberg earlier...

Patented Neck Profile

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

carbon_fiber_bullet_round

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.
