I have heard that I can make my own .strandberg*, how does that work?
The name .strandberg* is a registered trademark, so you can’t make your own .strandberg* guitar. BUT – from day 1 of operations, we have licensed many of our designs under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported license. This means, for example, that you can use the body shape and design features of the Boden shape and build a personal guitar based on it for non-commercial purposes. For more information, see our development blog at http://guitarworks.thestrandbergs.com/.
Please study the terms at http://guitarworks.thestrandbergs.com/2013/03/01/design-licensing-permissions/ and write an e-mail to us describing in your own words what you are allowed to and not allowed to do, as well as what you have to do, and you will get the permission.
