Boden Metal 8 Black PearlSKU: BD8CT-19M-E-M-BP
NOTE: starting June 2020, the Boden Metal models will be delivered with black anodized hardware in place of the Black Nickel hardware that is pictured.
Visually sleek and futuristic, the Metal model was designed for over-the-top metal sounds that are still articulate and expressive as well as being exceptionally versatile to cover various other genres of music. The model name certainly belies what is hidden beneath its aggressive yet refined look. From brutal heavy to crystalline clean and everything in between, the Metal delivers them all with authority and musicality.

I’ve had this bad boy for about a week now. All I can say is, I’m setting my sights on a Prog 7 String, and I’d LOVE to have a 9 String if you make them again. This Boden Metal 8 Black Pearl is going to be all over my upcoming album. Playing this guitar is a pure pleasure… The intonation is amazing. And when it first arrived I played it for an hour or two before realizing I never noticed the fanned frets as I played. It’s totally intuitive. Brilliant. You have a new fan.
Happy to hear that the Boden Metal 8 seems to have exceeded expectations! I hope the Prog 7 will be its equal :) /Ola
This guitar is everything I hoped it would be and more. The neck was great and perfectly set to my taste. This guitar is plug and play.
I can't thank the Strandberg Team enough for their top notch service; you guys make dreams come true, so good on you. This guitar shipped overnight as requested, a rarity. It was well received and awesome is an understatement for the guitar. On the low end, the Boden 8 is tighter than my M80M and weighs almost 1/3 as much. The neck is brilliant and the Fishman Fluence electronics are perfect for this 8; so many sonic options. The high strings are killer and the lows are so ominous; it's sound is outstanding, clear and encouraging. The Ergonomics make it a joy to play and I pine over desktop pictures of it all day. What can I say? 5 stars all the way :)
Thanks for the awesome review, Michael!
I didn't know if I would like a headless guitar but now that I worked with the hardware, it is super simple to setup the guitar. I asked for low action setup and I got really nice low action for buttery smooth solos. The only thing I found odd was having two push pull knobs. It is a lot of pushing and pulling if you ever need both active. Pro tip for the pickups: turn back your tone knob to like 7 or 8 and the volume back a bit. Then adjust amp settings so you can turn up the tone or volume for extra punch fast.
