Strandberg Guitars Boden Original 7 Headless Electric Guitar, 7-String, Black
WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL?
This is the Boden model that started it all. Featuring Swamp Ash body mated with 4A Flame Maple top and roasted Maple neck with roasted Birdseye Maple fretboard. The lightweight chambered body and the patented EndurNeck enhances comfort and reduces fatigue for long playing sessions, allowing you to better focus on your playing and the music you are creating.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
The acoustic character of the Boden Original is lively and balanced with superb articulation for both rhythm and lead playing. The classic wood combination of Swamp Ash and Maple provides an exceptionally clear and punchy tone with an emphasis on the high-midrange. The Original 7- and 8-string models feature the highly-touted Fishman Fluence Modern powered pickups to faithfully transfer the natural sound of the woods and the unique .strandberg* hardware to your amplification systems.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Our most popular model and the flagship series of our Premium production models that is available in fixed-bridge and tremolo versions – this is the ultimate “Swiss Army Knife” of guitars for the widest range of music styles and playing styles. You can simply never go wrong!
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 lightweight, 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 provides 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 use aircraft grade aluminum and carbon fiber for maximum performance.
The custom .strandberg* hardware is a vital contributor to the tone of the instrument. Lightweight aircraft grade aluminum and tight coupling of components ensure that nothing prevents the strings' vibrations from entering the body.
FISHMAN FLUENCE PICKUPS
Original and totally re-imagined, Fishman Fluence pickups are free from the hum, noise and frustrating inductance issues that plague even the most coveted wire-wound pickups — revealing pure, uncorrupted and musical tone.
- Modern Humbucker Alnico: All the musicality, power and explosiveness of alnico. Full chords and fluid solos, plus a voice you’ve never heard in a humbucker.
- Modern Humbucker Ceramic: Cutting ceramic attack. Brutal active aggression and passive punch in the same guitar.
Each Fishman Fluence pickup has two distinct and useful sounds on-board. These sounds start with the revolutionary Fluence Core, the heart of Fluence tone. From this Fluence Core we then create the classic timbres and tone — colors you expect from great guitar pickups — as well as some you’ve never expected.
