The Boden Metal Series

Explore

The Metal models provide much more than a sleek exterior and super slick playability. Underneath the futuristic look is a tone machine crafted of the finest tonewoods to deliver an organic and woody yet pulverizing high-gain tones for today’s most demanding metal genres. The chambered American Basswood body coupled with solid quarter-inch thick Maple top produces a thick and full-bodied midrange along with a deep yet tight low-end. The Roasted Maple neck with Ebony fretboard adds brilliance along with a sharp edge to cut through the densest mix.

The individual bridge pieces machined out of aircraft grade aluminum play a vital role in the Boden’s unique acoustic character – clear, organic and balanced with a fast and articulate pick attack. The unique hardware coupled with the Basswood, Maple and Ebony woods combine to provide a sound that is at once rich and woody as well as tight and punchy and which is amazingly responsive to the most minute subtleties of your touch. You will hear details in your playing that you have not heard before and which you can shape to bring out all the individual characteristics of your unique playing style.

Sarah Longfield

One of the most exciting new guitarists in the metal genre, Sarah Longfield has attained international notoriety in metal circles with her superb 8-string technique, feel for melody, and eclectic musical background to take metal to new uncharted territories.

Sarah’s main guitar is a custom-painted Boden 8 but she also owns a Metal 8 and a Metal 6 with the Fishman TriplePlay MIDI guitar system for recording. Describing the guitars as “incredibly ergonomic and comfortable to play”, Sarah has put them to great use through her very busy recording and touring schedule.

Her visually stunning custom artwork has now also become her Artist Signature Model that you can read more about here:
