What a great instrument …

I was hesitating for months to buy this guitar. I wanted to have a true temperament strandberg but the brown burst finish was not what I liked. But because no other TT strandbergs are announced I decided to give the brown burst Boden a chance. And I can only say: It looks much better than on the website photos. The colors are more quiet (esp. the yellow bridge and locks – something between gold and brown). The neck is a bit darker than on the photos, and all in all everythings fits outstanding together – a really beautiful instrument. For me there’s no difference to other necks playing on the TT frets – it’s comfortable, but it sounds a bit better (the difference is quite small). The pickups from Suhr sound amazing (but they are the same as in my other Boden strandberg). So in the end: I did not regret a minute that I bought this expensive but beautiful guitar.

I waited for such guitar most of my life

Hi Ola, This is my second Strandberg instrument. You probably don’t remember but You helped me enormously some time back when I needed to get Strandberg Fusion [W1704095] on very short notice (during Swedish vacation 😊). I ended up with this almost custom shop model (it was the sample where the color went a bit darker), and since I hardly touched any other guitar. But intonation was always a huge topic for me, and I always had the TT in the back of my head. But it took the stainless steel breakthrough to justify purchase of TT guitar. The instrument came set up so well, that I had to later adjust the setup of my Fusion, that’s how much I liked it. As the Fusion, this instrument is built to the highest standards. For me those are the instruments that while being completely contemporary are at the same time deeply rooted in guitar tradition – they are resonant, and very responsive to dynamics. I only wish that the Boden TT was released as neck-thru, with vibrato, and HSH pickup config. I guess I just love my fusion so much. Best regard, Karol

Boden 6 TT Brown Burst: just wow!

The Swedes are generally regarded as unconventional. After extensive testing of the Boden 6 TT Brown Burst I am convinced that this assessment applies to Ola Strandberg and Anders Thidell in every respect. No matter what I look at, listen to or feel, be it sound, action, TT fretting system, neck and body design or general balance of the instrument: my search for the ideal guitar is over. From now on I can concentrate exclusively on making music. I would also like to mention the company's strong customer service culture: Due to slight movement of the wood, a few of the frets needed redressing. The .strandberg* team handled this with consummate friendliness and at a speed as if the company were the repair shop around the corner. For all this I am simply very grateful! Jan Steinmetz

I'm completely in love with my new Boden 6 True Temperament, playability and sound was always there with the Boden, but now with the TT frets it’s again a different world, surprisingly the feel and touch is absolutely natural for me, so good to have a much better intonation finally ….just in one word: AMAZING Thanx a lot for that Ola Matthias P.S.: wish list: the same instrument with tremolo ;-) thinking about the Boden 7 as well ….

Unique Qualities

Anatomy of a Strandberg

There are many design elements and factors that comprise a .strandberg* guitar. Each aspect - from the materials and components used to the ergonomic design features - has been carefully thought out and implemented to produce a guitar that is light weight, easy to play and has a big woody organic sound. Explore these different aspects that set a .strandberg* guitar apart from the rest.


By removing weight from the headstock, your guitar can be made very light and yet balanced. You can play with greater comfort for longer.

Versatile Body Shape

The body shape provides multiple seated playing positions for maximum comfort and versatility.

Scale Lengths Adapted to You

A multi-scale design allows your wrist to remain relaxed throughout the range of play. A longer scale length for the heavier strings provide better tone, and shorter in the thinner strings better playability.

Patented Neck Profile

Our patented EndurNeck™ profile promotes a more correct playing position. The result: you can play longer, faster, better and avoid injury.

Space Age Materials

Our hunt for great tone and low weight led us to using aircraft grade aluminium and carbon fiber for maximum performance.

Proprietary Hardware

The custom .strandberg* hardware is a vital contributor to the tone of the instrument. Lightweight aircraft grade aluminium and tight coupling of components ensure that nothing prevents the strings' vibrations from entering the body.
