Boden Plini Edition Natural

SKU: BD6TCT-17I-E-V-NA

Based in Sydney, Australia, Plini has taken the prog-metal genre to a new level of complexity and sophistication with his virtuosic command of the guitar and an advanced compositional style that draws from many genres of music – both traditional and modern. Taking our close working relationship to the next level, Plini and .strandberg* Guitars developed the Boden ‘Plini Edition’ model that covers all of his musical bases as well as his aesthetic tastes.

The Boden ‘Plini Edition’ features chambered Swamp Ash body with a Maple top for a superbly balanced and punchy sound with Australian Blackwood veneer top that Plini specifically specified in a nod to his home, roasted Maple neck with Ebony fretboard accented with his trademark moon inlay at the 12th fret, Suhr SSH+ and SSV pickups with a 3-way switch since he only uses those three sounds, one volume pot only since he never uses the tone knob, and the EGS 5 Pro tremolo system.

Simply described as “sick” by Plini, the Boden ‘Plini Edition’ is an instrument that lives up to the artistic vision that one of the premier instrumental guitarists and composers of this era relies on for both recording and live performances night after night.

Fantastic Guitar.

I wanted to learn the guitar when I was 6 years old, but had a bad experience that made me give it up... After 30 years of frustration, I decided to seriously start learning guitar (with a great teacher) and fell in love with the .strandberg design* . My Boden Prog Plini Edition is amazing. Beautiful. Simple. Ergonomic (the Endurneck feels so great!), easy to play and carry, I don't think I would ever leave it. Just seeing it on its stand makes me want to play it, at least 1 hour a day, and fills me with happiness. Never give up your dreams, and enjoy yourself! Thank you Ola Strandberg for this incredible guitar. Cheers from France ��

I'm very happy to read your review, Victorien! What you are saying is one of the exact stated goals for the design - for you to look at it across the room and want to play more, and be comfortable doing it. Enjoy learning the guitar! /Ola

Best guitar ever.

This guitar is wonderfully crafted and designed. It plays effortlessly, feels great to stand with or sit and just looks like a piece of art. I did so much research into finding my perfect guitar to buy and and this fits the ill exactly. I picked up the guitar and it inspires me. Expensive but rightfully

The ultimate in playability for the modern era

This is my third Strandberg and each one impresses me more! The Plini Boden hits the modern playability that only Strandberg has and mixes it with a more classically voiced Suhr pickup set. I can go from prog chugga chugga to sensual cleans thanks to the single coil switching. Can't imagine a better guitar.

Unique Qualities

Anatomy of a Strandberg

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.

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.

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.

headless_design_bullet_round

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.
