The Boden ‘Prog’

What makes it special?

The Prog was developed for progressive rock/metal players who need a cutting tone, slick playability and a smooth-functioning tremolo system. The body consists of Swamp Ash to provide punchy high-mids, 4A Flame Maple top for added brilliance and tightness and Ebony fretboard for more high-end presence or “sizzle” that authoritatively cuts through a dense mix.

What does it do?

The Suhr SSH+ bridge humbucker and SSV neck passive humbuckers for the 6-string and the Fishman Fluence Modern active humbuckers produce a wealth of great sounds from squeaky clean to over-the-top distortion and everything in between with character and authority. The Ebony fretboard, the only distinguishing feature from the Original model versions, provides the bright cutting character as well as a smooth and sleek feel for increased speed and ease of string bending.

Boden Prog 6 Black

Really blown away by the instrument ! What a great piece of work. The guitar is really amazing. Never tested fanned frets or any headless before but you get used to it immediately. So cool to have this lightweight guitar, it really is a big confort. The Endureneck is indeed very well thought and you notice that the thumb gets naturally on the 3 edges of it when you play. Shure passive pickups sound perfect (clean and distortion). Overall, a great instrument that cost a little bit of money but I think it's completely worth it. You can easily see that every bit of the guitar is quality work. The only little complain I can make is about the color. It's true,at least with this model, you don't get the black-grey color that's shown on the website. It's a little bit frustrating because it would have been even more nice. And it's hard to make a decision when you're not sure of what you're gonna get. BUT despite not wanting any greenish guitar at all, it's also true that the color, indeed greenish, is still very nice. Anyway, amazing guitar and still rockin' with the color. If you're a fan of extreme music, what's more extreme than this ? Highly recommended ! Thanks a lot Ola !

Magnifique - Blown Away

I have to say that I am really blown away by this guitar. I had already had many excellent feedbacks. In the end, it is way above my expectations. First, the guitar is a genuine piece of art. The grip is excellent and everything feels natural. Then the sound, I'm really impressed by the warmth and depth. The microphones are excellent and the sound transmitted keeps a very high fidelity , even on a medium amp. Finally, I don't way to play anymore on another guitar. =) Thanks Ola for this great achievement, and looking forward to buying another model, in a year or two. Ben

My first Strandberg, my last brand

After installing Fishman Fluence OpenCore pickups, this is by far the best guitar I have ever played, I play it every day. The factory setup was not that great and the strings were rusty, but after a proper setup and a new set of strings, it was almost perfect until I put Fishman pickups in it. Thank you Ola!

Boden 6 prog

I was interested/nervous about the shape of the neck. After getting used to it I really enjoy it. The shape really guides you to a comfortable position without feeling intrusive. The body is very comfortable as well, my only complaint is the pickups. That being said, I can easily change those out. Overall, I’m really happy with my purchase.

Thanks for the review, Andrew. Pickups are surely subjective, and fairly easy to replace. We aim for a great sounding package, where the source signal is 100%! /Ola

The Boden Prog 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.
