This guitar is just amazing. Everything is perfect. I think every guitarists needs to try a strandberg to know.
I’m very happy with the instrument sounds and plays. The neck in particular is an incredibly impressive piece of design: Although noticeably different to play at first, I now find myself missing it’s contours and shape when returning to traditional neck profiles on my other guitars. I’ll be surprised if I don’t invest in another Strandberg at some point in the future!
K so I have been playing guitar since I was 8 (am 34 now), so thats some 26 years. I have owned many Ibanez guitars, and a few fenders. For a while I wanted to get the Music-Man JP15 but couldn't since I love my kids and getting them food was more important to me than buying guitars. Until this year when my sweet wife went and bought me not one, but two guitars in the same week: the JP15 limited edition Ball Family Reserve, and the Strandberg Boden Plini. I was mostly excited for the JP15, and the Plini was like a bonus b/c me and my wife really loved the look of the Strandbergs- headless, cutaway body shape, etc. So the day came when they both arrived, and I was BLOWN AWAY with the quality of the Strandberg!!!! No joke, literally blown away. The JP15 cost nearly double what we paid for my Strandberg, but the Strandberg surpassed the quality, playability, you-name-it of the Music-Man John Petrucci guitar- so much so that I immediately returned my brand new JP15 and ordered another Strandberg when it was available (this one the Boden Original 8). I LOVE MY STRANDBERG GUITARS. And I have owned an Ibanez JEM, Ibanez JS1000, and (briefly) a MusicMan JP15. My Strandberg's blow them all away. Also they are the sikkest looking guitars I have ever seen. My Strandberg acquisitions have been life-changing. I am playing more than I have in the last 10 years, my kids all want their own strandbergs, and my wife wants to start playing as well with a strandberg of her own. I cannot say enough great things about Strandberg guitars, except that I can absolutely and unequivocally promise you that if you get one you will be as blown away as I was.
I just received my Boden Original 8 red. I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful the neck designed fit my hand and with perfect intonation. I spent 6 hrs. practicing the Bach Cello suites and so far I could not be happier. I will be starting a television show and I will be using Lydia (that is the name I gave my Boden Original 8Guitar), through out the show. I will also be doing many instructional Videos for MITA using the Boden Original 8 Red guitar. I look forward to Strandberg being super successful.
It's amazing, prefect playability, sounds like a beast with gain, and crystal like heaven with clean tones. The best guitar i ever had!!!
