- acoustic guitars
Strand acousitc guitars are made in Jørpeland, Norway by Odd Blikra Egeland and Ørjan Bråtveit Berge. They both enrolled in Norwegian Academy of Instrument Making in Østfold in 2001. The teaching followed the German curriculum with luthiers from Markneukirchen in Germany teaching the craft of classical guitar making. The school closed before the two could complete their final year, but they both travelled to the USA to gain experience with Daniel Roberts (ex production manager at Santa Cruz). On their return to Norway in 2005 they launched Strand - as a high end acoustic brand.
