A logical evolution of the revered Boden design

The Boden design has been praised and adopted by thousands of forward-thinking players around the world due to its ergonomic features, supreme playability and sonic versatility. This design has now been further expanded and refined using neck-thru-body construction to not only offer incredible upper register access but a sonic quality that is unique and different from its bolt-on counterpart.


In the past, neck-thru-body construction on other types of guitars has often resulted in a thinner and narrower sound but this is not the case with the Boden Neck-Thru. The tone is big, full, organic and rich while still providing the focused punch that neck-thru-body guitars are known for. You still get that .strandberg* sound – articulate, balanced and musical. The Suhr passive pickups or the Fishman Fluence active pickups perfectly complement these tonal characteristics to take your playing to new heights of creativity.


Meticulous attention to every detail

From the choice of woods to the finish, every detail was meticulously considered and implemented during the development of the Boden Neck-Thru. Due to its unique construction, slightly different wood combinations were used to maximize the sonic potential of the design. The result is a big full sound not characteristic of most neck-thru-body guitars. The finishing techniques and processes were also carefully thought out to emphasize the sleek and pleasing visual aesthetics of the industrial design. Through nearly two years of development and numerous prototypes, the Boden Neck-Thru has now been perfected to an instrument that has no peer in the industry.
