Strandberg Saelen Deluxe NX 6 Electric Guitar (with Gig Bag)

Looking for a modern twist on a classic shape? This compact and ergonomic axe features a headless design, patented EndurNeck, and chambered ash body.

The Saelen 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 Saelen NX is at once familiar and strikingly bold, vintage-and-futuristic, yesterday-and-tomorrow. Sonically and tactile response-wise, the Saelen NX Deluxe model will provide nice warmth and roundness due to the chambered body and make the bridge pickup less piercing on the high notes so there's no need to roll back the tone knob. The Saelen NX Deluxe has a slightly warmer and more open sound than the Saelen NX Classic due to the chambered body but otherwise share similar sonic characteristics.

The Saelen 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 Saelen 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.

The challenge of developing the Saelen was finding the read more ideal balance between the classic/traditional and modern innovation. The Saelen 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.

The Saelen NX is for the modern musicians who have their feet firmly planted in both the traditional and the modern - both visually and sonically. With the capability to produce the classic sounds of yesteryears with all the innovative features that .strandberg* is known for, the Saelen 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 Saelen NX models will deliver the tone, playability, and feel you need to perform at your very best.

By removing weight from the headstock, your guitar can be made very light and yet balanced.
The body shape provides multiple seated playing positions for maximum comfort and versatility.
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.
Our hunt for great tone and low weight led us to using aircraft grade aluminium and carbon fiber for maximum performance.
Our patented EndurNeck(TM) profile promotes a more correct playing position. The result: you can play longer, faster, better and avoid injury.
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.
