The Boden Metal NX Series

Boden Metal NX 7 Black Granite

WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL?

Designed for pulverizing power and lightning speed integrated with righteous tone, versatility, and striking aesthetics that point to the future, the Metal NX is a no-compromise axe for the modern metal and prog musician. Featuring a lightweight chambered Basswood body mated with solid Maple top along with carbon-reinforced Maple neck and the super-fast and slick Richlite fretboard, the Metal NX is acoustically resonant with a big and powerful sound that is faithfully delivered to your amplification system with either Suhr™ passive pickups for the 6-string model or Fishman™ active pickups for the 7- and 8-string models. The Metal NX exudes overwhelming power and blazing speed with bleeding-edge aesthetics and design with striking minimalism.

WHAT DOES IT DO?

Like all Boden models, the acoustic character of the Metal NX is lively and balanced with superb articulation for both rhythm and lead playing. Tonally, it emphasizes the low midrange that delivers bone-crushing punch and power as well as girthy high-mids and a razor-sharp cutting edge in the treble. The patented EndurNeck™ provides both comfort and strength to your forearm and wrist, allowing you to play longer without fatigue and with improved technique so you can focus on your playing and music. The new Rev7 hardware facilitates quick string changes and setup work to keep your guitar in optimum playing condition. The new Venture Gig Bag allows you to take your Boden anywhere with comfort, ease, and robust protection for virtually any environment. 

WHO IS IT FOR?

The Boden Metal NX is for the adventurous forward-thinking musician who is not held back by traditions and is always seeking to innovate and break new ground. Embracing the best of the past but incorporating new concepts such as headless design, multi-scale construction, the radically innovative EndurNeck™, and aircraft-grade aluminum hardware, the Boden design has stood the test of time and continues to evolve and expand into new frontiers to help modern musicians to be the very best they can be.

The Boden NX Concept

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_design_bullet_round

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_bullet_round

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.

carbon_fiber_bullet_round

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.
