Boden Plini Edition Natural

SKU: BD6TCT-17I-E-V-NA

Based in Sydney, Australia, Plini has taken the prog-metal genre to a new level of complexity and sophistication with his virtuosic command of the guitar and an advanced compositional style that draws from many genres of music – both traditional and modern. Taking our close working relationship to the next level, Plini and .strandberg* Guitars developed the Boden ‘Plini Edition’ model that covers all of his musical bases as well as his aesthetic tastes.

The Boden ‘Plini Edition’ features chambered Swamp Ash body with a Maple top for a superbly balanced and punchy sound with Australian Blackwood veneer top that Plini specifically specified in a nod to his home, roasted Maple neck with Ebony fretboard accented with his trademark moon inlay at the 12th fret, Suhr SSH+ and SSV pickups with a 3-way switch since he only uses those three sounds, one volume pot only since he never uses the tone knob, and the EGS 5 Pro tremolo system.

Simply described as “sick” by Plini, the Boden ‘Plini Edition’ is an instrument that lives up to the artistic vision that one of the premier instrumental guitarists and composers of this era relies on for both recording and live performances night after night.

The ultimate in playability for the modern era

This is my third Strandberg and each one impresses me more! The Plini Boden hits the modern playability that only Strandberg has and mixes it with a more classically voiced Suhr pickup set. I can go from prog chugga chugga to sensual cleans thanks to the single coil switching. Can't imagine a better guitar.

Best guitar in the world

In short I love it. Bloody expensive, but worth every dollar. It’s a majestic piece of craftsmanship and it’s exhilarating to own the same guitar as the greatest player in the world. I’m happy to finally own an strandberg and become part of the family.

Boden 6 Plini Edition

I love my new guitar! The fit and finish of everything, the setup was great, the quality was even better than I had expected. Also the ordering process was awesome because Strandberg was in constant contact with updates on my order. Looking forward to ordering more guitars soon!

Great, but let down by poor QC

This is my second Strandberg, and overall it's another great guitar. However, when it arrived the string guides at the nut were installed incorrectly meaning the .56 Low E string would not fit through the nut. Reasonably simple to rectify, but not something I'd expect at this price point.....very Gibsonesque. Now it's fixed, the guitar is great....love playing it!

Hi Jonathan, great to hear that you love playing your Boden Plini Edition! Our nuts are optimized for a tight fit with 10-46 strings out of the box and needs to be widened to fit a 56 gauge string.

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.
