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 acoustic character is lively and balanced with superb articulation for both rhythm and lead playing. The Original models now also feature Suhr passive pickups and Fishman Fluence active pickups to faithfully transfer the natural sound of the woods and the unique .strandberg* hardware to your amplification systems.
