Based in Sydney, Australia, Plini has taken the prog-metal genre to a new level of complexity and sophistication with his virtuosic command of the guitar and an advanced compositional style that draws from many genres of music – both traditional and modern. Taking our close working relationship to the next level, Plini and .strandberg* Guitars developed the new Boden ‘Plini Edition’ model that would cover all of his musical bases as well as his aesthetic tastes.

The Boden ‘Plini Edition’ features chambered Swamp Ash body with a Maple top for a superbly balanced and punchy sound with Australian Blackwood veneer top that Plini specifically specified in a nod to his home, roasted Maple neck with Ebony fretboard accented with his trademark moon inlay at the 12th fret, Suhr SSH+ and SSV pickups with a 3-way since he only uses those three sounds, one volume pot only since he never uses the tone knob, and the new EGS tremolo system. Simply described as “sick” by Plini, the Boden ‘Plini Edition’ is an instrument that will inspire the serious rock guitarist to create inspiring new music.
