Boden Metal 7 Black PearlSKU: BD7CT-19M-E-M-BP
NOTE: starting June 2020, the Boden Metal models will be delivered with black anodized hardware in place of the Black Nickel hardware that is pictured.
Visually sleek and futuristic, the Metal model was designed for over-the-top metal sounds that are still articulate and expressive as well as being exceptionally versatile to cover various other genres of music. The model name certainly belies what is hidden beneath its aggressive yet refined look. From brutal heavy to crystalline clean and everything in between, the Metal delivers them all with authority and musicality.

To put this review in perspective, I’ve been using Strandberg Boden 7s since I got a USA Custom shop model in late 2014, before they were in full production, since then I’ve owned several other models of the OS run, but in early 2018 I finally got what I’d always wanted which was a Boden 7 (Prog) with a tremolo. The refinements on this model were superb, and i felt that this was a huge leap from the OS models which had somewhat bulky necks and felt a bit clunky compared to my USA Custom shop. This was rectified in the Prog, which feels sleek & refined. Being a one guitar kind of chap I was happy with my prog but as a working musician I usually like to have a spare, and so I decided to replace my OS spares with the new Satin finished Boden 7 Metal, and of course I’m not disappointed! It no longer feels like I have a main go to guitar, but 2 exceptional instruments to share the workload. Tonally the Fishman Fluence pickups are awesome, everything I require in a pickup, and hugely versatile. Combined with the basswood body on the Metal, the Fishmans sound slightly more full bodied and aggressive, not better or worse than my Prog, just different. I’d like to say that these are the last Strandbergs I would buy, but, I know they won’t be…
