Boden Standard 6 Tremolo Maple Quilt Bengal Burst

SKU: BD6TCT-18S-M-QV-BG

The Boden Standard Series guitars were developed to provide the same key features that our guitars are acclaimed for but with solidbody construction, our own design pickups, and figured Maple top veneers to reduce costs and offer a line that delivers outstanding value as well as top flight performance. The solidbody has a distinctively different kind of sound and response than the chambered body and it isn’t better or worse: just different and a matter of personal preference.

Solidbody construction with the same key .strandberg* design and features

The Boden Standard

What makes it special?

The Boden Standard was developed to provide great majority of the premium features found on such models as the Original, Prog, and Fusion but with a solid American Basswood body, Quilted or Flame Maple veneers on a solid 5 mm Maple top and our own specially designed pickups. The result is a lineup of guitars that provides all of the distinctive characteristics and key features that the Boden guitars are known for at a superb value for the working musician. All Standard models feature Roasted Maple necks and fretboards with the EndurNeck profile, Luminlay face and side dots, Jescar stainless steel frets and the innovative .strandberg* hardware as on all of our guitars.

What does it do?

The combination of Basswood with a solid Maple top and Maple neck/fretboard is considered the “Holy Grail” of electric guitar wood combinations by many top guitar builders and artists alike, producing an ideal balance between warmth, punch, brilliance and sustain for an extremely well-rounded sound that’ll excel at virtually any musical genre or playing style. Our pickups were custom designed and wound to our specifications to bring out the best acoustic properties of the woods and hardware for a very balanced and rich sound through any amplification system.

Who is it for?

The Standard models are for players who do not require high-end features such as chambered body, 4-A grade figured top/fretboard, and name brand pickups but require the same premium look, sound and features that provide the performance they need as well as long-lasting value. Like our Classic models, the solidbody construction offers a different type of feel and sound than the chambered-body guitars but still delivers the trademark .strandberg* clarity, articulation, sustain, and warm woody character that our guitars have become known for.

The Boden Standard Series guitars were developed to provide the same key features that our guitars are acclaimed for but with solidbody construction, our own design pickups, and figured Maple top veneers to reduce costs and offer a line that delivers outstanding value as well as top flight performance. The solidbody has a distinctively different kind of sound and response than the chambered body and it isn’t better or worse: just different and a matter of personal preference. The body consists of solid American Basswood with quarter-inch Maple top capped with either Flame or Quilted Maple for a balanced and punchy tone that is superbly complemented by the roasted Maple neck and fretboard. One of the classic wood combinations espoused by top custom guitar builders and world class artists alike, Basswood/Maple body and Maple neck/fretboard combo provides the ideal balance between warmth with full-bodied richness and strong high-midrange with sweet singing treble. The new .strandberg* OEM pickups were designed and wound to our exacting specifications to deliver a wide range of great sounds from vintage clean to over-the-top high-gain distortion. The figured Maple veneers ensure a stunning look while the solid Maple top underneath works in conjunction with the body back wood to add brilliance, tightness and punch. Overall, the Standard Series guitars are no-compromise instruments you can count on to deliver the performance you expect from a .strandberg*. During the course of manufacturing of this guitar model, the color of the roasted maple has varied to some degree. The wood is roasted to achieve the desired properties (tonal response and dimensional stability in different weather conditions) and not to a certain color. This means that the color sometimes does not match that of the product photos, which were taken of the first produced sample guitars. We are working on a revised process and acquiring new equipment for roasting maple that will give us greater control of the results, which should be in place in early 2021. Until then, if you have any concerns about the color of the roasted maple neck or fretboard before ordering, please reach out to us through the contact form at the bottom of this page, and we will be happy to send you a photo in advance, or talk you through the process.

Boden Standard 6 Tremolo

I've had my boden for a couple of weeks now and it's with a heavy heart I have to notify you that I had to tune one string a few cents today... ... Jokes aside, the guitar feels and plays great, I'm still not sure if the flat neck is a positive or not but it also doesn't affect me negatively. I really like how I can have a fair amount of gain from the bridge pickup, switch to neck and have a clean single note sound and then just roll back the volume for a clean sound with chords, it sounds great!

Boden Standard 6 Tremolo Maple Quilt Bengal Burst

This guitar is just awesome! It's really light weight, which really helps 'cause i have neck & back pain issues, but with this guitar i can play for hours without problems. As a geek, i also love all the technical innovations in this guitar. Playability of this guitar is just great and I love the tremolo system & the endurneck profile. This was my first .Strandberg* guitar, but surely not the last!

An amazing guitar and outstanding customer service

Having always played Ibanez guitars I fancied something different. My guitar teacher has been using Strandberg guitars for years and I always knew I wanted to purchase one when I could; when I saw I could buy one for the price of a prestige Ibanez I just knew I had to have one! Since I have had the guitar I haven't been able to put it down, it was setup perfectly for me out of the box, and is effortless to play. I love the versatile tone of the strandberg pickups, and would say they sound better than the dimarzio pickups I would use in an Ibanez. I also need to talk about the customer service, as it was truly excellent. I am based in the UK and received my guitar within three working days despite ordering it in the middle of Brexit. There was a bit of a mix-up with the Brexit duty charges, but the customer service team got me sorted in less than 24 hours from me e-mailing them, you honestly couldn't ask for more. I won't be looking for another guitar for a while, but when I do I'm certain it will be another strandberg! Rock!

Amazing instrument

I was sold on the desing principles that Stranderg use to create their guitar. Having played it for the past couple of months I have to say that it's more than I had anticipated as everything about is well thought out and superbly executed(frets, electronics, all other features and most notably the neck and body resonate together creating a rich and powerful tone). The setup was perfect straight out of the box. Playing it required no adjustment and I found the EndurNeck(and other features) to actually aid in my playing. The tremolo is smooth and flutters nicely. Also changing the strings is easy and straight forward.

The Boden Standard 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.
