The Boden Bass ‘Prog’

Boden prog 5 string headless BASS

What makes it special?

The Boden Bass Original was designed to provide exceptional comfort, ergonomics and playability with its lightweight headless construction, multi-scale neck, and the patented EndurNeck neck profile. For the bass player, this is especially important knowing how much a solidbody bass can weigh. The proprietary hardware is constructed of aircraft grade aluminum that plays a major part in the instrument’s unique woody and organic acoustic character besides reducing the overall weight. Premium materials such as Swamp Ash for the body with solid ¼” Flame Maple top and roasted Maple for the neck and Birdseye Maple for the fretboard and proprietary components along with world class manufacturing processes and techniques are used to produce these instruments of exceptional build quality, workmanship, and reliability.

What does it do?

Besides the striking visual design aesthetics and unmatched ergonomic features, the very best materials, components and craftsmanship combine to provide a bass that is easy to play, reduces fatigue for your hands as well as your back, and which produces stunningly clear yet warm organic sounds that will suit virtually any musical genre and style. Acoustically, the Boden Bass Prog is powerful, articulate, punchy and balanced with just the right amount of high-end to cut through the mix and these characteristics are further enhanced and complemented by the highly acclaimed Nordstrand Big Rig dual coil humbucking pickups and the highly-touted and exceptionally versatile Darkglass Tone Capsule 3-band EQ preamp.

Who is it for?

The Boden Bass Prog models are for advanced professional bassists who seek the utmost in playing comfort as well as a wide range of great modern bass sounds that can be used in a variety of professional musical environments, whether that’s a critical time-sensitive recording session or the largest of concert stages in which there is no room for errors. All of the features on the Boden Bass Prog were thoughtfully designed, engineered and implemented with such players in mind – from the premium materials to the scale length of each string and from each component of the hardware to the layout of the controls. The Boden Bass Prog is for the serious bassist who requires a powerful and flexible instrument that sits well in a dense mix and complements heavily overdriven guitar tones as well as expansive keyboard sounds.

Strandberg prog 4

Plays and sounds amazing. I have found that playing this bass and my Boden original 8 string guitar have what I was hoping for in common; lightweight, loud, articulate, comfortable, and varied in the tones they are capable of. My only small inconvenience with the bass would be the input jack sometimes leaves the cable in awkward positions when I’m playing in a chair and I think for the price the collapsible stand should be included. Strandberg guitars and basses will replace my in-use collection for all of my live and studio applications. This won’t be my last Strandberg purchase.

Thanks for the kind words and 5 stars, Kristina! Your feedback about the input jack position is noted, and it's certainly something we will take into account for future design revisions. We would love to have a new stand design available that we could offer as part of the purchase - I hope I can get to prioritizing this project soon. /Ola

I've played guitar for a long time but never enjoyed playing bass because of the instrument's weight and bulk. I recently joined a project where I was a better fit as a bass player than guitarist so after having wonderful experience owning their guitars, I decided to give their bass a try. As it turns out, I love playing bass...when playing a Strandberg. As with the guitars, the neck is super comfortable and unlike pretty much every other bass I ever played, it's comfortable to play. The weight (~6 lbs) is easy to bear and it's comfortably to play sitting or standing. The tone is definitely on the "modern" side but it's very versatile. The Darkglass preamp mates nicely with the Norstrand pickups, providing nice tones with neutral EQ. The EQ is useful throughout its range and provides a lot tonal options, particularly when used in conjunction with the blend control. While the master volume is in what I'd consider to be an unconventional position, it makes sense since, unlike guitar, I find myself adjusting the blend control much more frequently than the volume. As with all Strandbergs, playability is excellent. Fretwork is nice and the factory setup makes the bass a pleasure to play all over the neck. My Prog 4 addresses all the things that frustrated me about playing bass. It also sounds and plays great. Highly recommended!

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.

EndrureNeck strandberg guitar

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.
