The Boden headless custom 8 string guitar combines excellent ergonomics with style and aesthetics. The guitar is named after the city Boden in the north of Sweden, drawing on the resemblance between its shape and reindeer antlers; there are no wild reindeer left in Sweden, but they are commonly farmed in the north.
The specs of the production Boden custom 8 guitars are taken from the Made to Measure guitars of leading players such as Misha Mansoor, Chris Letchford and Tosin Abasi. Materials are selected to provide a versatile tone, applicable to all genres of music, and all share the common characteristics of being quick response as well as sounding “organic”. Fitted with Lace Alumitones™ pickups and with a chambered Swamp Ash body, the Boden 8 normally weighs in under 2 kg/4.4 lbs, and yet remains perfectly balanced. The contoured body shape allows for multiple comfortable seated playing positions and the low weight saves your neck and shoulders. The patent pending EndurNeck™ shape relaxes tendons, muscles, and joints in your hand, wrist and forearm, as well as encourages a more proper playing position. When you feel better, you sound better.
You can now customize many aspects of your Boden by choosing materials, finish and electronics!
