The Boden ‘Prog’

What makes it special?

The Prog was developed for progressive rock/metal players who need a cutting tone, slick playability and a smooth-functioning tremolo system. The body consists of Swamp Ash to provide punchy high-mids, 4A Flame Maple top for added brilliance and tightness and Ebony fretboard for more high-end presence or “sizzle” that authoritatively cuts through a dense mix.

What does it do?

The Suhr SSH+ bridge humbucker and SSV neck passive humbuckers for the 6-string and the Fishman Fluence Modern active humbuckers produce a wealth of great sounds from squeaky clean to over-the-top distortion and everything in between with character and authority. The Ebony fretboard, the only distinguishing feature from the Original model versions, provides the bright cutting character as well as a smooth and sleek feel for increased speed and ease of string bending.

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

By removing weight from the headstock, your guitar can be made very light and yet balanced. You can with greater comfort for longer.

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.

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.
