IMPROVED TUNING THAT MAXIMIZES RESONANCE

Balanced tension from the lowest to the highest strings and a more ergonomic spread of the scale lengths are coupled with the most advanced tuning system to offer a truly exceptional and unmatched playing experience – both physically and aurally.

Great guitar

This is my second True Temperament guitar from strandberg – and after 2 weeks of using it I only can say it’s a pleasure to play on it. My first impression after unpacking was a moment of slight disappointment because of its look. The advertising images on the strandberg website show the Boden 7 TT less dark than mine is in reality. The body and the neck do not shine as bright as on these images. So I had to arrange with an other looking instrument than I was expecting. But now 14 days later I like the look although in my opinion the blue of the body could be brighter. I knew the Fishman Fluence Modern pickups from another Boden 7 (without True Temperament frets), so I knew what to expect. With their push-pull-potis they can create different sounds for almost every situations, they feel nevertheless best in heavier music. As my other True Temperament guitar the Boden 7 is well constructed and it’s also well adjusted – but that’s somethings I am used from strandberg. All in all: The Boden 7 TT is not a bargain but it is definitely worth it’s price.

I Love It

I own the Boden 7 TT now for over a month and am incredibly happy with it! My goal was, to buy a special/high-quality guitar that I can use as my main instrument for recordings, concerts, and teaching. One versatile guitar for everything! Although I just might change the pickups to Fishman Fluence Classic, I still think I made the right choice here. 😊 The Boden shape is a huge win, because it allows me to switch between many different (and some new) positions during long practice sessions! All the ergonomic parts of Strandberg guitars make playing feel much healthier. Finally, a guitar shape that is adapted to the human body! The build quality is as good as you would expect for a premium instrument. The neck feels amazing and everything seems quite long-living. True Temperament completes the package and sounds just awesome and clean! Like Per Nilsson said, “A headache, you almost didn’t know you had, disappears!”

Excellent sound and playability

I have been waiting for the Boden 7 True Temperament Blue guitar to become available for a couple of months and I was really excited when I could finally order it. I was not disappointed when I played it for the first time. It really looks stunning and the neck is really comfortable. It took some adjustment (string action and neck) and it is perfect now for me (no buzzing and still good playability). Up to now, this has been my favourite guitar of all eleven I have bought so far :-)

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.

Headless

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.
