Over-the-top brutal yet musically articulate and expressive

The Boden ‘Metal’

What makes it special?

Developed with the needs of the modern metal and prog players in mind, the Metal features American Basswood body for a strong low midrange with a quarter-inch Maple top that provides an ideal balance for both chunky palm-muted metal sounds and searing lead tones. The roasted Maple neck with Ebony fretboard plays fast while adding punch and a cutting attack to the overall sonic character to cut through the most dense mix.

What does it do?

The Metal was designed for speed and power while providing the intangible musicality and feel that discriminating musicians demand. The patented EndurNeck is fast playing and ergonomic so you can play longer with more precision and less fatigue in your hand and arm. The Ebony fretboard with the Jescar stainless steel frets feels super slick, allowing you to zip through the most difficult and speedy passages. The Fishman Fluence Modern pickups and electronics integrate perfectly with the guitar to provide power and versatility.

Who is it for?

The Metal is for the modern innovative musician who is not bound by tradition and seeks to expand musical boundaries with new sounds and techniques. With its highly-touted ergonomic features, superb playability, sonic flexibility and righteous tone, the Metal covers all the needs that today’s musician seeks in a guitar. Whether it’s brutal metal rhythm, sparkling clean or blistering lead sounds, the Metal has them all along with the ease of playability so you can focus on your playing and your music.

Each Metal model features the innovative Fishman Fluence humbucker pickups that combine the power and clarity of active pickups with the organic sound and feel of passive pickups as well as superb single-coil tones, making it an incredibly versatile instrument for many other musical genres besides metal

phenomenal guitar!

I still have to get used to the 8 strings and the fanned frets, but this phenomenal guitar helps me to get around the fretboard with ease! It's a blast and sounds amazing - I especially like the passiv setting of the Fishman Fluence pickups, they have some sort of raw tonal element to them.. The guitar setup was perfect when it arrived shipping from Sweden to Switzerland: no buzzing, no fretnoise, perfectly in tune! Keep up the excellent work! Greetings from Switzerland Tihomir

Love it

I found that, this might just be the best 8 string that I've played so far! I love the woodwork, the overall look and feel of the guitar, and the tone somehow also is better than any other 8 strings that I've tried.Plus I never have to worry about accidentally hitting the head of my guitar ever again. Please don't stop making there! ^^
