Boden Fusion 6 Black

Boden Fusion 6 Black

SKU: BD6TCT-17F-P-F-BK

Although the Fusion excels with both super clean and hyper distorted sounds, its strength is in how it delivers in low-to-medium gain settings, making it ideal for genres such as blues, pop, funk, reggae, and classic rock as well as jazz, fusion and intense high-gain metal. If versatility is a key factor in your playing and music, the Fusion will cover all of your bases and more.

Warm and full-bodied yet crystal clear in sonic depth and scope

The Boden ‘Fusion’

What makes it special?

Designed and developed with the serious fusion-jazz players in mind, the Fusion model features premium two-piece Alder body with 4A Flame Maple top and roasted Maple neck with Pau Ferro fretboard for a warmer full-bodied sound that is transparent, balanced and sweet. Alder body, Pau Ferro fretboard and the HSH pickup configuration are the distinctive features that set the Fusion apart from the Original and Prog models.

What does it do?

Alder is balanced in the mids with broader sound dispersion while Pau Ferro provides a slightly smoother response and the middle single-coil pickup adds versatility to get more convincing “in-between” single-coil sounds when combined with split humbuckers in the second and fourth positions on the pickup selector. The EGS 5 tremolo system combined with the Suhr HSH pickup configuration offer a wide variety of great sounding traditional and modern humbucker and single-coil tones, making the Fusion sonically the most versatile Boden model to date.

Boden Fusion 6 Black!. Strengths and weaknesses.

I waited some time to try the new guitar and I'm ready to write my ratings. The instrument is very beautiful, light, easy to play, even if on the lower part of the fretboard, the neck is too angular The sounds of the pickups are of different types and very good. You can play different musical genres. Unfortunately I found some flaws, which I want to point out. The input wire plug is not properly mounted. There is a contact that touches the wood body, and perhaps the black metallic paint causes the signal to be interrupted. When it happens while you play it makes you very angry. I had to do an operation, remove the rear cover and isolate the contact with adhesive tape. Also I think that six months after a commitment e-mail, Collapsible Guitar Stand is not yet available is not serious behavior. I would have bought it with the strap to save money on shipping. Finally I can say, I'm satisfied anyway.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Gaetano. Your problem with the output jack is very rare and taken care of for long term production. We discontinued the stand a while ago and still don't have a suitable replacement. I'm sorry if you were led to believe that we were getting it back in stock. Once we have a new design and supplier, I can personally promise you it will have been worth the wait, but I don't know when this will be. /Ola

Boden Fusion 6 Black

I bought this for my son to use, on the basis that if he was to give up playing then I would likely be able to sell it and recoup my money. I'm also a sucker for all things unconventional, ergonomic and well engineered - design classics. However, now he's tried it I don't think I'll ever be able to get it back off him! The pickup configuration is superbly flexible and it looks and sounds great. I don't play myself but he is learning Neo Soul style and tells me it's perfect for this. The compact dimensions are ideal when you have limited storage space as we do.

Thanks for the great endorsement, Tim! I hope it continues to bring your son many years of inspiration. The Fusion model is incredibly versatile and certainly not limited to any style of music. Maybe it's time you picked up playing yourself? :) /Ola

Amazing universal guitar

I’ve never seen such a comfortable instrument to to play. Also quite surprised by the way how long tremolo bridge can keep strings in tune. Very Excited!

Total Disappointment

I bought this guitar straight from Strandberg hoping for honesty. Instead, they shipped me a guitar that was used, not functioning, and damaged. The guitar lacked the usual protective plastics and had visible marks of use. The tuners did not work at all. I hurt my fingers trying to tune the guitar. The tuners were stiff and impossible to move. The guitar came with a few dings and/or chips as well as few spots of questionable paint finish. And all that for $2495.

The Boden Fusion Concept

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.
