Who is it for?
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.
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.

The only thing I have to point out is, that the workmanship of the body isn't the best. There are some parts on the backside where a few minutes with sandpaper would've completed the perfection. I mean it's the "just" the back, so it's not the most crucial thing, but for almost 2500€ it shouldn't be the case. But apart from that, I immediately fall in love with this wooden masterpiece. Never played a 7-string and also never tried a multiscale guitar before and the transition was seamless.
Thanks for the review, Johannes. I'm sorry to hear that the appearance didn't meet your expectations entirely - your feedback has been noted, and we will certainly try to do better in the future. /Ola
Bravo Strandberg! Thanks for modernizing and improving the design of the electric guitar. With the addition of the Fluence pickups, now the problems with traditional pickups are solved to! Best guitar I own!
Thanks for the 5 stars and kind words, Alex! I'm happy that you are enjoying the Prog 7. /Ola
I don’t usually buy guitars online without trying them first in a local store, and even though I didn’t manage find any near me the 2-week free return policy sealed the deal, The shipping was fast, the setup was perfect right out of the box, I can easily tell there was too much attention to details. The guitar’s natural color is slightly lighter than in photos. The headless feature, the endured neck profile, the chambered body (extremely light weight), along with a 7th string and complemented with active fishman pickups, that was all new to me, and it didn’t take me long to become accustomed to them. The included battery died after two days (even though I’ve been unplugging the guitar when I wasn’t using it), so make sure you have a few 9 volt batteries around, I’ve also noticed that the strandberg guitar stand has been discontinued, I totally recommend the fender universal guitar stand, the adjustable supports will work perfectly with the shape of strandberg guitars. 5/5, I recommend everyone to take it to the extreme and pull the trigger on these guitars.
I'm happy we were able to set your concerns to rest and get a 5 star review! /Ola
The guitar is just perfect for the modern guitarist , seeking fast neck, great tone and absolute precision in intonation and tuning .
Thanks for the 5 stars, Daniel! /Ola
The Boden Prog 7 with Fishman Fluence pickups has a smooth organic tone and can produce from bright clean sounds to crushing high gain distortion. It's light and the maple top looks beautiful. Great playability and comfortable action on the fretboard. As a curious metal guitarist I'm very satisfied with this choice as it fits my taste and my style.
Thanks for the 5 stars, Nikolaos! All our guitars have some unique quality, but I think they all share being versatile and useful in many scenarios. I'm happy you found yours to work well. /Ola
