Boden Plini Edition Natural

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.

Best guitar I’ve played!

I’ll start off by saying this is my first experience with a Strandberg and this is by far the best feeling guitar I’ve ever played. So much so that I just ordered a 7 string from the new NX range. This guitar came out of the box in tune and perfectly set up. Build quality is top notch. The only blemish is a bit of glue residue on the 24th fret but that can be easily cleaned on the string change. I got this guitar because I was having back/ wrist problems from work and it’s allowed me to continue playing for long periods of time. So thank you Ola and the Strandberg team!

My First Boden, and Definitely Not My Last!

There aren't enough words to describe how incredible this guitar is. After seeing so many of my favorite artists playing a Boden, I knew I had to pick one up and experience them for myself. This version felt like a natural fit, as Plini has become one of my favorite musicians and guitar playing inspirations in recent years. It is so wildly different than any guitar I have ever played, yet after a few hours of breaking it in, it feels like a natural extension of my body. It looks stunning, plays like a dream, and is so damn comfortable to play! Holy moly is this thing light, and that neck profile took almost no time to adjust to. Now I can play guitar for hours with little to no fatigue. It is a near perfect instrument, and I couldn't be happier with my decision. As a side note, I purchased a refurbished model to save on cost, and honestly I can't imagine what might have been the issue. My only recommendation is that for refurbed models it would be great to know the exact reason is was considered a refurb. I reached out to find out what the issue was, but as stock is always limited, I made the purchase preemptively. I never received an answer, presumably because I had purchased it at that point, but I am forever haunted by the fact that I don't know what the issue was! I'm sure this wont bother most people, but it drives my OCD insane haha. Otherwise an absolute 10/10 purchase, if you are on the fence of picking one of these up, do not hesitate!

A Cut Above The Rest

This guitar has taken me to another level in my playing. For years I have been stuck in my playing progression from the physical limitations my previous guitars forced me to play under, but this Plini guitar has opened me up to what is possible for me to achieve in my guitar playing. It’s so comfortable, light, sounds fantastic, the fanned frets are a revelation as I can reach better with my little finger. It’s not unusual to play a new guitar a lot after purchasing it but I simply can’t put this guitar down! I’m even selling my beloved Suhr classic pro as it feels wrong to me now. That’s how good the Strandberg guitar is! Strandberg for me is the new ‘normal’ in guitar builds and all other guitars simply won’t do anymore. It’s taken me over 30 years to find the right guitar for my hands. Thanks Ola!

Amazing instrument !

I have seen Strandberg guitar 3 years ago at my friends house and from the first moment I knew it will be my dream axe :) I love everything in this guitar. The body, neck, how light it is and the way fretboard is aligned. For me this is a perfect combination of engineering and artistic mind. It's like you see in all reviews: everything is there for a reason and all what's gone, has been removed for a reason as well. It is the most ergonomic guitar I have ever played! Guitar came with standard tuning and it took me like 5 min to tune down to drop C# and it keeps the tune perfectly! The tremolo bridge is really great as well. The pickups are great! I can get all the tones I was looking for :) I am a big fan of Plini, so when I've seen you have signature guitar I was set for this one. The price was the only one factor that took me so long to finally buy it. But it was worth waiting !!! I love this guitar! Only if I could buy somewhere the stand for it ... I can't find it nowhere in Sweden (and I leave only 120km from your headquarters) again, great job Ola! I'm already saving the money for some other Strandberg guitar with fixed bridge :) //KRISS

This guitar... 11/10

I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t the best guitar I’ve ever held. Enough said.

The Plini Edition 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.

Headless guitar Boden classic 7 ghost white

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.
