What Makes It Special?

What Does It Do?

True to the .strandberg* heritage, the Boden Essential is a lightweight electric guitar with the acclaimed ergonomic features to keep you playing for longer and without fatigue. The patented EndurNeck™ keeps your fretting hand and wrist in a more natural position up and down the neck and the lightweight design keeps the instrument balanced in both sitting and standing positions. The reduced weight is also easy on your shoulders and back, allowing you to enjoy the experience of playing and making music for longer periods of time than “standard” electric guitars. The new EGS Arc hardware makes string changes and fine adjustments easier than ever and all these features combine to produce an instrument that is light, comfortable, resonant, and easy to use. This sound is then captured by a set of .strandberg*-designed custom OEM pickups to provide a plethora of both humbucker and single-coil sounds to cover all musical genres and playing styles.
