The Boden Classic is the .strandberg* take on the tried-and-true traditional bolt-on solidbody electric guitars with a pickguard. Featuring solid Alder body with Maple neck and Maple or Pau Ferro fretboard, the overall sound is familiar yet with the distinctive .strandberg* sound and feel. The 6-string Classic 6 Tremolo features .strandberg*-designed humbucker bridge pickup and two vintage-flavored single-coil pickups while the 7- and 8-string models feature two humbuckers that were all wound to .strandberg*’s exacting specifications.
ANATOMY OF A STRANDBERG
There are many design elements and factors that comprise a .strandberg* guitar. Each aspect - from the materials and components used to the ergonomic design features - has been carefully thought out and implemented to produce a guitar that is light weight, easy to play and has a big woody organic sound. Explore these different aspects that set a .strandberg* guitar apart from the rest.
By removing weight from the headstock, your guitar can be made very light and yet balanced. You can play with greater comfort for longer.
VERSATILE BODY SHAPE
The body shape provides multiple seated playing positions for maximum comfort and versatility.
SCALE LENGTHS ADAPTED TO YOU
A multi-scale design allows your wrist to remain relaxed throughout the range of play. A longer scale length for the heavier strings provide better tone, and shorter in the thinner strings better playability.
PATENTED NECK PROFILE
Our patented EndurNeck™ profile promotes a more correct playing position. The result: you can play longer, faster, better and avoid injury.
SPACE AGE MATERIALS
Our hunt for great tone and low weight led us to using aircraft grade aluminium and carbon fiber for maximum performance.
The custom .strandberg* hardware is a vital contributor to the tone of the instrument. Lightweight aircraft grade aluminium and tight coupling of components ensure that nothing prevents the strings' vibrations from entering the body.
