Over at Strandberg Guitarworks, Ola Strandberg has been busily documenting his ambitious take on an ergonomic electric guitar.
Ola’s guitar project includes, among other elements, an ergonomic multi-position guitar body, a twisted headless neck and a headless guitar bridge of his own design. For this installment, we’ll focus on the guitar body.
Ola’s guitar design is unlike many of the ergonomic electric guitars we’ve seen before – leaning firmly toward the Strat style rather than the Klein guitar shape. To test out the shape, Ola made the mockup seen here in various playing positions:

Out of the four different playing positions, the last one may not be feasible, but the other three felt very, very good. Next, having verified that it will be a working design, I’ll start making the routing template for the body.
With roughly 10 bass and guitar projects under his belt, Ola has a good deal of experience and if the regularity of updates is any indication, we’ll soon be seeing a successful guitar project come to fruition.
