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.

Lovely guitar! Don't hesitate, I wish I bought one sooner...

The EndurNeck is amazing, it feels completely natural. The support was phenomenal; I had a bad tremolo block and springs but the support team immediately got back to me and sent out replacements. Great team and great guitars :)

a nightmare

Awful, the worst customer service and payment system ever with Klarna as a third party, I selected 1 star only because there is not an option to leave it in blank but that is what you really deserve, I would not imagine that service coming from such a big company, anyway, I would not recommend this company to anyone for sure and please stop sending messages regarding a survey or thanking me for the purchase, the guitar NEVER arrived and it was **** to get the it refund, at least check the records, that just tell you once more again the level of organization in the company, simply terrible.

Thank you for sharing your experience. I'm very sorry that we couldn't sort out the issues you had with Klarna, and that you couldn't follow through on the alternative bank transfer option that we offered. Hopefully you will give us a second chance in the future.

Worth every penny

I've always thought of a strandberg as a dream guitar and recently, I was able to finally afford one. I have immediately fallen in love with the guitar and everything about it. I was immediately able to get used to the neck and the fanned frets, which seems to be a concern to many. I love the chambering of the body and the overall weight of the guitar. My only complaint is that tuning with a trem system is somewhat difficult, as I seem to push the trem up and down while turning the knobs. Other than than, the guitar is flawless

I'm happy you were able to realize your dream for a .strandberg* and that we didn't disappoint. Tuning a floating tremolo system can be daunting, but should be fine once you get more used to it. Never hesitate to reach out to our support if there is anything we can assist with. /Ola

Nicest guitar I’ve ever played

I recently bought the Boden Prog 6 and couldn’t be happier. The Enduraneck is a revelation if you’ve ever had wrist or hand problems. Combine this with the Suhr pickups and Strandberg trem and you’ve got the ultimate guitar in my book! Thanks very much to Ola and the Strandberg team.

Good, better, Strandberg.

I am blown away. Let me start by telling that I’m not a pro guitarist, more like intermediate or something like that. I’ve played guitar for 15 years now and my practicing has been more or less occasional. I have also owned a bunch of guitars from Strats to RG, from custom shop guitars to market guitars. There have been some good guitars in my life and I’ve enjoyed them. Since getting the Strandberg nothing has been the same. This guitar is absolutely amazing! I have never played so much in my life and I’ve got blisters on my fingers! I’m not saying that gear makes you better guitarist, but this surely made me practice more and inspired me to practice new things, so I’ve already got better. The feel, sound and quality are also there. It feels so easy and effortless to play! Soundwise it’s suprisingly variable and I’ve found all the tones I would ever need. Quality is nothing to arque, it’s flawless! I think Strandberg is truly a gamechanger. Guitars that are as innovative as this doesn’t come even in every decade. Well done and thank you 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.
