The Boden Classic enters a new era

Boden Classic NX 6 Viridian Green

The Boden Classic NX is the modern and futuristic take of the classic time-tested bolt-on solid body design with many of the same innovative and groundbreaking ergonomic design and functionality features that the Boden has become renowned for. Incorporating a pickguard on a solid Alder body for a cool retro-modern look and a more traditional sound with the Suhr™ Thornbucker Plus humbucker pickup in raw nickel cover in the bridge position and a pair of Suhr™ V60LP single-coil pickups, the new Boden Classic NX guitars deliver tone, style, feel, and the vibe that traditionalists can enjoy while benefitting from the lightweight design and the Boden’s acclaimed ergonomic features.

“My first encounter with a .strandberg* was in a rehearsal room with Marco Minnemann in 2018. He had his Butterscotch Blonde Sälen Classic NX with him and handed it over for me to check out. I was taken by all of the usual selling points - the futuristic design, incredible comfort, unique feel, and tonal capabilities. Fast-forward a few years, and I’m delighted to have multiple .strandberg* guitars (and a bass!) in my collection for any application imaginable. They are instruments that allow you to channel the archetypes of the past, but more importantly, they have their own distinguished voices that encourage fresh, innovative sounds. Like many, I look forward to whatever they come up with next!”
