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.

Very satisfied

Great guitar, sound is everything I wanted. Was a bit worried about the endurneck because there's no places nearby i to try it, but bought it anyway because they have a good return policy. I can only say that I'm absolutely sold. Its way more comfortable than playing on a regular neck and it didnt take any time at all to get used to. Feels very natural.

New Favorite

It has been amazing, the depth that the chambered body adds is so unique. The design is unlike anything I've ever experienced, it truly will balance however you hold it, even without a strap for the most part. The neck profile feels so natural as well.

Beautiful guitar!

My son loves his new 7-string guitar! It came really quickly and it's gorgeous. Also the box made a great rocket ship for a 3-year-old.

Excellent

This guitar is very good. The build is great quality and the sound is superb. It is all about ergonomics, the shape sits well with your body in any position you choose, it's very light and the neck profile feels very natural. It actually makes you realise how much you change your hand position for different licks/passages. It took me a couple of days to adjust, 7 strings/fan frets/EndurNeck, was all new for me. My only minor concern is that the tremolo arm is quite thin and feels a bit fragile. There is not big movement like a Floyd Rose would have, it's more like the MusicMan or Fender strat. One thing you should take into account is that the colour on the website doesn't do it justice. It is quite a nice in real life, with some shades of dark green and black.

Thanks for the detailed review, Juan. Actually, there is a feature of our tremolo that will allow you to make the action more extreme, closer to a Floyd Rose, which you can read about on our website. Fidelity of colors between photos and reality is always a challenge, especially as small specifications can change over time, but we do our best to ensure that we can live up to expectations. I'm happy that you like the guitar enough for 5 stars! /Ola

Worried about the neck shape?

If you're looking to buy one of these and you haven't had chance to play one (as it was in my case), don't fret (pun intended). I've played Ibanez wizard necks for years, so was concerned about playing anything thicker than a piece of paper. Nevertheless, I took the plunge and got a Boden Prog 7. It took me seconds to feel comfortable with the neck, in fact, I hardly noticed at all. No drama. It fits like a glove. It plays like silk, is light as a feather, and engineered like a Swiss watch. TL;DR this is the best guitar I have ever played (and have played some twice the price)

Thanks for the great review, Christopher! We find that many players ask anxiously about the EndurNeck thickness with the exact same reference as you (Ibanez wizard), and find that it "just works" despite measuring thicker. /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.
