Boden Prog NX 6 Plini Edition

SKU: BD6TCT-21I-L-M-NA

The Prog NX 6 Plini Edition gets a thorough makeover from the popular original version that looks very similar on the surface but has many under-the-hood changes and enhancements that take the performance, sound, and playability to a whole new level. Now featuring Mahogany body and neck with Richlite fretboard, all of the new NX features, and the .strandberg* Plini Edition humbuckers produced by Michael Frank in California, the new NX 6 Plini Edition is a culmination of the continued close collaboration between Plini and .strandberg* Guitars.

A Meticulous Fusion Of Modernistic Minimalism And Organic Nature

The Boden Prog NX Plini Edition

What Makes It Special?

An instrument that is exactly as Plini plays it for both live and recording applications, the Prog NX 6 Plini Edition incorporates all of the new NX features such as the Rev7 hardware, the sculpted neck-joint heel, and repositioned arm bevel as well as Mahogany body and neck with Richlite fretboard and the .strandberg* Plini Edition pickups to achieve Plini’s vision of what his ultimate instrument should be. The iconic visuals remain intact from the front but the Mahogany woods on the back impart a luxurious richness as well as a girthier and warmer tone, making it one of the most striking .strandberg* guitars available.

What Does It Do?

The Prog NX 6 Plini Edition was designed to be simple yet versatile while delivering the best possible performance and maximum playability so Plini can focus on playing and making music. Like all .strandberg* instruments, the Plini Edition was designed and built to be an extension of the artist – visually, sonically, technically, and artistically. Two custom-designed and wound .strandberg* Plini Edition humbuckers provide a wide range of sounds with only a volume pot and a 3-way switch. Extremely dynamic with loads of harmonic overtones, these pickups respond sensitively to volume pot adjustments and your picking attack. The middle setting of the two overwound outside coils of the humbuckers provides a sparkling single-coil sound while maintaining the output level of the humbuckers alone. These under-the-hood features provide much more versatility and flexibility than that meets the eyes.

Who Is It For?

The Prog NX 6 Plini Edition is for the advanced and uncompromising musician who requires the ultimate in performance, playability, and sonic versatility. The forward-looking instrument reflects the vision of an artist who seeks to balance the past with the future to explore new musical territories, going well beyond what has been achieved in the past. Looking to break out of the classic/vintage rut? The Prog NX 6 Plini Edition defines where the electric guitar is going in the New Millennium.

The Prog NX 6 Plini Edition gets a thorough makeover from the popular original version that looks very similar on the surface but has many under-the-hood changes and enhancements that take the performance, sound, and playability to a whole new level. Now featuring Mahogany body and neck with Richlite fretboard, all of the new NX features, and the .strandberg* Plini Edition humbuckers produced by Michael Frank in California, the new NX 6 Plini Edition is a culmination of the continued close collaboration between Plini and .strandberg* Guitars. Years in the making with various prototype revisions that were tested by Plini in real world recording and live performance settings, the NX 6 Plini Edition is as refined and technically proficient as it is natural and down-to-earth, a fitting reflection of the artist himself. Minimalistic yet sophisticated, simple yet versatile, the NX 6 Plini Edition is the perfect embodiment of the Boden concept that continually looks towards the future.

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.
