1. If one was to install an 8 string single coil pickup onto a fanned fret 8 string guitar with the neck pickup reserve compared to the bridge (http://www.skervesen.eu/instrument.php?id=17), how would the single coil be mounted?

2. What is the difference in quality/consistency between Skervesen and .strandberg? Ive been looking into the Skervesen Shoggie DC and the .strandberg Boden 8, but I am not sure which would be the better guitar. Looks aside, I cant really tell which would be "better", as in quality, fit and finish, company, etc.. Ive heard great things about both companies, but not so much on the guitars themselves
