WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL?
The Boden Standard was developed to provide the majority of the premium features found on such models as the Original, Prog, and Fusion but with a solid American Basswood body, Quilted or Flame Maple veneers on a solid 5 mm Maple top and our own specially designed pickups. The result is a lineup of guitars that provides all of the distinctive characteristics and key features that the Boden guitars are known for at a superb value for the working musician. All Standard models feature Roasted Maple necks and fretboards with the EndurNeck profile, Luminlay face and side dots, Jescar stainless steel frets and the innovative .strandberg* hardware as on all of our guitars.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
The combination of Basswood with a solid Maple top and Maple neck/fretboard is considered the “Holy Grail” of electric guitar wood combinations by many top guitar builders and artists alike, producing an ideal balance between warmth, punch, brilliance and sustain for an extremely well-rounded sound that’ll excel at virtually any musical genre or playing style. Our pickups were custom designed and wound to our specifications to bring out the best acoustic properties of the woods and hardware for a very balanced and rich sound through any amplification system.
WHO IS IT FOR?
The Standard models are for players who do not require high-end features such as chambered body, 4-A grade figured top/fretboard, and name brand pickups but require the same premium look, sound and features that provide the performance they need as well as long-lasting value. Like our Classic models, the solidbody construction offers a different type of feel and sound than the chambered-body guitars but still delivers the trademark .strandberg* clarity, articulation, sustain, and warm woody character that our guitars have become known for.
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.
The new .strandberg* OEM pickups were designed and wound to our exacting specifications to deliver a wide range of great sounds from vintage clean to over-the-top high-gain distortion.
The figured Maple veneers ensure a stunning look while the solid Maple top underneath works in conjunction with the body back wood to add brilliance, tightness, and punch. Overall, the Standard Series guitars are no-compromise instruments you can count on to deliver the performance you expect from a .strandberg*.
