Celebrating my 1 000 000 view on my blog http://www.olaenglund.com I decided to share a bit of what I’m doing right now. Just started to fool around with some mindless boring riffs for the upcoming Feared album due 2012. Expect some new sounding shit as well as old Youtube-video songs!
|I spent years playing in bands with frustrated 7-string players. From that experience I was inspired to look into what it would take to build an instrument that would meet the requirements of true touring and recording professionals, and I found that we could build them and keep them affordable for players all over the world. Along the road to what we build today, I consulted many great players who all voiced similar aggravations with their instruments, specifically buying a guitar that would immediately need different pickups & routes, fretwork, set-up and intonation right out of the box. Other major concerns were the need to re-cut the nut to fit their gauge of stings, or worse yet-, finish flaws in a guitar they had waited 16 months to receive!
The endless list of problems players have been forced to live with seemed unreasonable and entirely correctable. Here at S7G we offer "production" models that stand up to the best from other custom shops, and our own custom shop guitars can fulfill every players dream. We start with the best components available, pay incredible attention to every detail, and maintain unyielding quality control before the instrument leaves our shop.
If we wouldn't play it, we wouldn't expect a customer to buy it.
The bottom line is we strive to build affordable, truly American- made instruments that we can be proud of, that will satisfy even the most discerning player, while insuring the options available to each and every player are as limitless as humanly possible.
If you can dream it, we will build it!
