Highlighting the unique design features of the patented Endurneck™, the review is claiming that “a neck that can make the most ambitious of stretches and convoluted of chords feel like a breeze – making the player feel like they’re capable of almost anything.

Perfect score in every category

Scoring the Boden Essential a maximum of 5/5 stars for each category available: features, sound quality, value for money, build quality and playability, Total Guitar says: “the Boden Essential may be a modern classic, but it’s a classic nonetheless.”
