V-BDN

What makes it special?

The V-BDN is where futuristic cutting-edge technology meets innovative and forward-thinking industrial design with old world craftsmanship. .strandberg* and BOSS have teamed up to design, develop and manufacture the ultimate evolution of the solidbody electric guitar – a technologically state-of-the-art yet organic and acoustically resonant instrument which allows the adventurous musician to create and produce a virtually unlimited palette of great sounds for both live and studio usage.

What does it do?

Get both traditional passive electric guitar tones with the Lace Alumitone humbuckers as well as a broad range of superbly modeled classic electric guitar, acoustic guitar, bass and synthesizer sounds and alternate tunings featuring BOSS’s acclaimed V-Guitar technology. Finally, this revolutionary technology has found the perfect modern guitar to reside in: the Boden. Not a mere retrofit of electronics into a typical electric guitar, .strandberg* and BOSS collaborated closely to maximize the features each had to offer while assuring that such features complemented each other. The result is a synergy between the two disparate worlds in which the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Who is it for?

Explore the sheer sonic potential of the V-BDN while enjoying all the benefits that the Boden is known for: lightweight, ergonomic comfort, fast effortless playability, acoustically resonant and a woody organic tonal character. Whether you’re into rock, jazz, pop, fusion, country, metal, experimental, or all of the above, the V-BDN can cover them all while providing avenues for new sounds to be explored and created right under your fingertips.

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.
