I sold my Mayones Hydra guitar last year, but it was a fixed bridge.
What model of Strandberg were you thinking of getting? If you give me a link to the model I can take a look at the guitar and give you my opinion of what I think the maintenance of it would be like.
I was looking through my old Facebook messages and here is a message I sent to a Polish Mayones dealer who I had become friendly with, and it outlines my problems with the bridge.
I have a few problems with adjusting the action and intonation on this guitar. Firstly I find that if I want to lower the action I have to loosen the intonation screw completely - if I don’t then the strings wont lower because the screw for intonation is holding the saddle in place. I can raise action with the intonation screw tightened. My other issue is with the intonation screw - when I tighten the screw on the A string I find that the action of the string raises up very slightly. I also find when I tighten the intonation screw the saddle moves very slightly as the screw is being tightened and this throws off any adjustments I have made. I am eventually able to get everything set up, but it takes a while. I’m wondering if I am doing something wrong? Thank you.
I’m not trying to put you off, just making you aware of what was a major headache for me for the entire time I had an otherwise beautiful guitar. I wouldn’t want to see someone experience the same problems I had.
Sometimes I would put 8s on the guitar and the high string would slip from under the locking grub screw at the headstock. I guess the reason is because the string was too thin and the grub screw couldn’t grab it properly. this is something else to be aware of if you play with very light gauge strings.
